Sit while you pee!

Fun fact of the day…

Stephen Shen, Taiwan Minister is encouraging men to sit while they pee, to help save the environment. Due to less splash from standing the bathroom will be cleaner and smell better. This will keep the bathrooms cleaner for other users and cleaning it will take less harmful substances…

Local governments in Taiwan are being advised in the next few days to place public notices asking men to sit when urinating.

Your thoughts?
