In which we present a happy thought for the weekend:
Life is demanding, noisy and chaotic. It is distracting. The myriad stimuli with which we anesthetize ourselves and to which we have become hopelessly addicted often obscure the everyday wonders which are never in short supply, but lacking the stridency and sex-appeal of electronic gadgetry, go so often unnoticed.
One such simple but overlooked beauty of life is manifested in a biological quirk: that men and boys are able to pee standing up. Although this truth is known to virtually the entire human population over the age of two, very few stop to consider the full ramifications of this notion.
Contemplating the nature of the standing pee is of benefit to both sexes. Reduced to its essence, it becomes a liberating, powerful concept:
Men, the world itself is your urinal.
Take joy in this freedom to go where you want to go.
And ladies, that the world is not your urinal no doubt comes as something of a relief.
