most people, at least in these comments, seem to have missed that one. Think about it (as in, hitting a flat side of a cube aimed, by its angle, right at your pants). Happened to me, once. The bar owner, to this day, doesn t know just how close he came to being forced to drink a Sambucca with Jagermeister and Jeppson s MalГrt make it a double on the rocks
with where the rocks would have come from being what should be painfully obvious.
Seriously he ll never know how close he came. Accuracy, schmackuracy. For me, now, ice in the urinal automatically means that I pee in one of the regular toilets in a stall standing, of course. I figure that s a lot easier than hunting-down the bar owner like a dog, then dragging him by the shirt collar into the men s room, and force feeding him a double Sambucca with Jagermeister and Jeppson s MalГrt because one of his well-angled urinal ice cubes ricocheted pee onto my pants.
It also helps keep me outta jail. Gregg L. DesElms Napa, California USA Veritas nihil veretur nisi abscondi. Veritas nimium altercando amittitur. *Secret Revealed* Ladies probably don t know this, but the urinals in men s bathrooms, usually at bars or clubs, sometimes have ice in them.
Even though many men have seen this, they don t usually know why it s there. Well, auto flush exists because some people don t flush. Urinal cakes exist because some people don t flush. So of course, ice exists in urinals because some people don t flush. But, why would they use ice instead of urinal cakes or auto flush systems? Because ice is cheap and readily available.
When patrons urinate on the cold ice, the ice melts and flushes away the urine. Some bar owners say it works even better than urinal cakes because it actually flushes the urine instead of just trying to deodorize it. It doesn t hurt that it provides entertainment and encourages accuracy too. Chad Upton is the editor-in-chief of and an official Yahoo Answers contributor. Article:
