I watched "Cops" while using the restroom.

    Was standing at the urinal and there was a tv w/"Cops" on the wall @ eye level.

    What the heck kind of culture do we live in where we have to be entertained while performing that particular chore?

    It was at a restaurant, btw.

    I guess it's an extension of posting the sports pages as was done decades ago. HH

    That's a good idea instead of reading a magazine, that's what I call comfort room - no need to rush, just do your thing while watching and feel lighter afterwards

    Reason 1: So many guys get off watching COPS the restaurant figured it was best to put a urinal under them instead of letting them watch it by the bar where the messes are harder to clean up.

    Reason 2: Since everyone knows how to do cops' job better than cops; the restaurant figured the damage done by angry viewers of the TV favorite, COPS, would be less when they had their pecker's in their hands.

    One bar I go to has a 2 way mirror right where the urinals are. You stand there, taking a leak while looking out over the bar and all the people drinking...its a weird experience but I kinda like it. I doubt the women even know what the mirror really is, but the guys know that when you glance over at the huge mirror....dudes are actually watching you.

    We were working in an office building right next to LeGirls in Phoenix, and they had TVs in the bathroom as well. Kind of a weird experience but cool nonetheless.

    Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

    It's the culture we have devolved into. A while back, while on my way to work I saw an SUV, career mom driving, and two youngsters in the back seats. Now mind you, it was a weekday and those kids were headed to school. Each of them had a dvd video going with two different programs. I mean, what happened to using that time to visit with one another and have a discussion, whether it be family, current events, school or work, I mean what has happened? And we wonder why our youth is so distracted, so off task, so self absorbed. Now, videos while urinating. Geez!

    There's a two-way mirror in the women's too. It's positioned so they can check out your package. The mirror for men to look at the bar is just a distraction. I hope you didn't play too long...
