New urine-resistant walls shoot pee back at you

http://www.dailybreeze.com/oddities/...ee-back-at-you

SAN FRANCISCO ó San Francisco now has nine public walls covered with a repellant paint that makes pee spray back on the personís shoes and pants.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Friday that itís the cityís latest attempt to clean up urine-soaked alleyways and walls.

Signs reading ďHold it! This wall is not a public restroom. Please respect San Francisco and seek relief in an appropriate place,Ē hang above some walls.

The signs donít explicitly state that the wall will fire back, the newspaper reports.

Public urination has long been a problem in San Francisco. Legislation banning it in 2002 has seen little success, despite a fine of up to $500.

The paint has proved to be effective in Europe. It was applied to walls in Hamburgís St. Pauli quarter, where beer drinkers often canít be bothered to find a bathroom.

The special pee- and other-liquid-repelling paint is called Ultra-Ever Dry and is made by Florida-based UltraTech.

That stuff is awesome.

I want clothes made out of stuff. You'd never do laundry again. You could piss your pants and would just roll down your leg.

I suspect some fetishists are very excited about this.

If we could just coat the whole Northeastern United States in this, our winter problems would be solved.

What's this stuff cost? I'd like to cover my deck furniture in it, maybe keep me from having to repaint it every two years.

Why do you keep peeing on your deck?

Isn't this a repost?

What kind of crazy screwed up world are we living in when a man has to justify peeing on his own Goddamn deck furniture?!?

It's late, I'm grabbing a beer out of the fridge next to the door to the back porch, I need to pee. Why wouldn't I just step outside?

Re: New urine-resistant walls shoot pee back at you

wouldn't you think that you just need to pee at an angle, so it will bounce away from you?

I didn't say you had to justify it. I get that you were just marking your territory. Eddie Money should start doing this immediately.

Would be great to use for pranks. Paint the back inside of a toliet/urinal, sink etc.
