Men tend to get stressed out about using the urinal in a public restroom, according to a recent study from the University of London. Etiquette seems to dictate that, in a side-by-side urinal setting, merely making eye contact can lead to a fight.
Last month, French film star Gerard Depardieu caused quite a stir when he urinated in the cabin of an Air France plane in full view of passengers and crew. The odd story caused even CNN’s Anderson Cooper to have a serious gigglefit while covering it for his ‘AC360′ program.
Now Depardieu, 62, has proven he too has a sense of humor about it.
Currently, men have twice the options as women when it comes to public restrooms and, as a result, shorter lines. Danish design company UiWE wants to change that with the Polle, a four-pronged female urinal that allows women to relieve themselves in a semi-squat position.
