providing urinals

16 Aug

london 10.05am 18C rain thursday 2018

it is predicted to rain today and sure enough it is raining now, although very light at the moment.

the rain reminded me that it will wash the urine away if any men were to piss outside. the thought was prompted by me reading this article about paris setting up plant containers as urinals, it contains straw which can then be composted with its urine content to use as fertiliser. i thought it is a good idea. but they painted the containers in bright red, as well as other more subdued colours, but the bright red attracted too much attention. they should not paint it in red and also put them in side alleys and out of the way places… though if people cannot find them, it might defeat the purpose. 

it seems parisien males think nothing of pissing in public. in the past i used to admire paris for providing pissoirs but i think they removed them and now the men have nowhere to go.

what do london men do? i think  men piss in alleyways, and doorways too… though maybe the latter is not so common now. but it is not very noticeable, because most try to do it in an out of the way spot. and there are lots of plant containers around to piss into and all at waist height too. not to mention we have lots of parks and garden squares, where it is easy to piss through the fences.

the rain will wash it all away. another reason for liking london, where it rains often. though this summer is proving to be a memorable exception. 

added. 10.54am raining very heavily now, so that is lovely. cleans everything .
