Hydrodynamics of Urinal Splashback

Here’s a fun one, much lighter than recent heavy entries. From Larry
Hammer on DM.net comes this reference to a Straight Dope
article on the hydronamics of urinal splashback
. I find that woman
reall don’t appreciate the complexities of peeing from several feet
away from the target, where a poorly timed sneeze can completely
destabilize one’s launch platform. True, we cause more mess. On the
other hand, we have a harder task.
