New Urinal-Based Video Game Makes a Splash

ScuttleMonkey posted more than 6 years ago | from the hope-you-don't-have-a-shy-bladder dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 176

Those who enjoy drinking beer, playing video games, and (oddly enough) peeing in urinals may be able to reach true nirvana after all. "Place to Pee" is a new video game that relies on a player's ability to hit sensors in a urinal to control game play. While this may seem extremely male-centric, don't worry, ladies, the game designers have thought of you too, and have designed a specialized paper cone for participation. Man, it's a bad day to be a janitor.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

I've alway felt sorry for women....never knowing the pleasure of writing their names in the snow...

I'd for years thought to try to come up with some form fitting funnel with a hose attached to it they could use.

I mean...you're driving downt he road, and in the snow on the side of the road you read...Bill....Fred...Chuck.....LINDA??

spun (1352) | more than 6 years ago | (#23495046)

I had a girlfriend for a couple years who was quite adept at peeing standing up. She'd just spread her lips with two fingers and kinda arch her hips forward. She could even manage a fair bit of accuracy and distance. Although she would only try it while wearing a dress because of the dribble problem.

As for the funnel/hose idea, well, it's been around for a while. I think they called it "Le funnel" or something.

This is a problem that we need some help on solving. I personally have been telling women to start commenting on how men who pee on the floor don't know how to use their penis. If women start eluding to the idea that men who pee on the floor must suck in bed, we would likely see a huge improvement in this area.

Don't get your hopes up. The police claims there was a 40% increase in car thefts the first year Grand Theft Auto came out. I hope for your sake this game doesn't go mainstream.

Urinal fly (4, Insightful)

tessaiga (697968) | more than 6 years ago | (#23494450)

This actually isn't a bad idea. A while back there was a story about the urinal fly [urinalfly.com] , and how urinal in Amsterdam have a sticker of a little fly on them because they found that it improved people's aim when they had something to focus on [truthorfiction.com] . This seems like the same principle taken to the next level.

Re:Urinal fly (3, Funny)

xaxa (988988) | more than 6 years ago | (#23495432)

In England I've seen little plastic football (soccer) goals placed in the bottom of urinals, with a ball on a string between the posts. Definitely something to aim at! (and a chance to score in the men's?)

Here it is, £2.99:

Missing_dc (1074809) | more than 6 years ago | (#23495512)

I used to keep inkjet-on-normal-paper printed pictures of my ex-girlfriends faces in my wallet and drop one in the urinal while at a bar or club. It was always fun to hit the restroom right before leaving and see how distorted the images got. Even funnier when the current girlfriend sees them and says "what do you carry these for?" as I am explaining, a buddy usually pipes in "I thought that looked like so-and-so in the urinal on the right"

Where's the torrent for this? Can't have your urinal cake and eat it too. There is some bad news about the working conditions at the factory. Underpaid workers and dehydrated testing staff were chanting from the picket lines: "Hell No! We Won't Go!"

We need stupid things like this to happen once in a while. We need to be reminded of the outer limits of fucktardom so that we know where not to stray. Someone is going to try to buy this and get it installed, thinking it's neat, and we all get to stop and say "You, sir, are a fucktard, do you honestly think I need to be entertained for the 20 seconds it takes for me to pee? You just got robbed." And the maker of this will be laughing to the bank until the fucktards are properly put in their place and stop buying stupid shit like this... and then society moves on.

tepples (727027) | more than 6 years ago | (#23494610)

The fake is obvious to anybody who has learned even a bit of Japanese. For one thing, the katakana in the box art says "Spa Pii Pii Brothers", not the expected "Super Pii Pii Brothers". "Super" becomes "su -- pa --" once transliterated into katakana, but the box art says "su pa --", which sounds more like "spa" or "spar" because a 'u' between voiceless [wikipedia.org] consonants often drops out unless it has the long-vowel mark (resembling a dash) after it.

I am Glad its being banned. Its sexist and unfair! (-1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#23494298)

I am Glad its being banned in parts of belgium as "indecent". Its sexist and unfair.

Little boys already think of themselves as a superior gender because they are not forced to squat or hover because of their equipment privilege.

Society is already biased against those lacking a penis in countless unfair and unrelated issues in countless countries.

Driving in Saudi Arabia. The right to learn Math in Iraq. Etc.

In fact, I think they should remove urinals from government funded buildings (schools) and try to teach boys not to be messy little pigs with their wayward spouts.

The "paper cone funnel" for females as mentioned in their interviews does not make this game nonsexist or fair because you know they will never install this advertisement-driven game in the ladies room. Plus what person would want to try pissing like a dog.

I am certain version 2 game targets to splatter for points in the software will be fleeing animals and possibly shrieking asian schoolgirls. Its depravity.

I say ban it now before this childish male privilege nonsense spreads, and maybe boys will respect their mothers and sisters more.

I'm pretty sure this is a troll but, in the off chance that it is someone that can't make distinctions between sexism and quirky but functional innovation, I will state the following:

Most of the above post is about as ludicrous as me stating that women are sexist because they would like multiple orgasms during the same sexual encounter, when the man would only get one, maybe two.

Also, according to most janitors and business owners (including women business owners) women's bathrooms have always been nastier.

The game I saw was a guy skiing down a slope, the aiming part was needed to guide the player.
