Your Pee for Thee and Not for Me March 8, 2015

How do you keep annoying revelers (aka The Hostages) from peeing on things what ought not be peed upon? Well it’s simple ==> just put some hydrophobic gunk where they’re prone to let fly:

If you live in a big city, then odds are you’ve encountered the unexpected foul whiff of sun-baked urine emanating from a concrete corner.

… Some folks in St Pauli, the party quarter of Hamburg, Germany, have a wonderful solution that could deter even the worst offenders Hostages.

They sprayed parts of walls that take the most abuse with Ultra Ever Dry, a hydrophobic coating. Any liquids directed onto the surface are repelled and splashed back. Warning signs were posted.

The results were deeply satisfying. Men Hostages who peed against the wall got it right back.

It would be funny to put this on a fire hydrant and film dogs’ reactions.

An entire generation of drunken youth will be unable to write their name in cursive with urine.

do they still teach cursive?

4. Retired Geezer - March 8, 2015

I’m pretty sure they don’t teach cursive in school anymore. Heck, I’m not even sure they still teach Math or History.

Is that stuff harmful to plants?

6. digitalbrownshirt - March 8, 2015

That’s amazing! With a few tweaks here and there they might be able to use it in our imaginary fight against illegal immigration.

Yes, I’m still high from Norco and Valium.

R.G.–it’s by the back door.

Oh, I forgot the Modesty Rule.

EDIT

Well, shit…I just read your “Last 2 Months” post, how are you doing, DBS? Thanks for sharing.

I’m pretty weak. I don’t think I could get my .45 on target if I need it. Luckily my German Shepherd is always on full alert, although she’s been watching me kind of funny. I tend to wobble a lot and I’ve fallen over a couple of times. Today was my first trip outside my home that wasn’t a strictly medical visit. We stopped at Walmart on the way back from my communicable disease specialist (the one that’s issuing my antibiotic packs for staph). I got to ride around in one of those electric carts. It’s amazing how polite people are when you live in a small town. People would stop and wait for me to get moving and they’d offer to get stuff off the shelves if I needed it. Nothing at all like when I lived in SoCal.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to walk again, maybe with a cane, maybe not. I’m not so sure I’ll still have a career as a machinist though. I made sure I got my FMLA papers taken care of before the first surgery, but I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever be able to work the same job again. It’s kind of a scary feeling. My company would find something for me to do, but I might end up going back to school. Technically I could cash out my 401k and pay off the house, then as long as my wife stayed with me (no reason she wouldn’t) we could get by on a lower salary for me.
