The Dream Stream

According to this Jezebel article (which contains actual interviews) most men pee in the shower.

Is this true?

I'm a pretty sloppy guy and have lived in some shitty apartments in my time, but I have never, ever, ever pissed in the shower.

It never even occurred to me that any guy who wasn't on drugs would pee in the one part of the house that is supposed to make you clean.

What's even more interesting (and goes against the original premise of the article) is the number of women who commented saying that they and their friends pee in the shower too!

So, what's the deal?

Is Jezebel making this shit up?

Do you pee in the shower?

Did you know that lots of people pee in the shower?

Obviously feel free to comment anonymously.

Just indicate your gender.

Hmmm...

I find it interesting that if I want to get CNN or BBC news in English on my French cable system I have to pay extra, but Al Jazeera news in English is free.

Chinese Democracy Song Reference

Apparently a middle age couple in New Hampshire is hiding in a "compound" because they don't think they should have to pay federal taxes.

One of the stories on this noted that the I.R.S. has dealt with so many people who think that income tax is a weird government plot that they've dedicated part of their official website to explaining why these arguments are horseshit.

It's worth a look - just to find out what arguments people have used.

One of my faves is "The United States consists only of the District of Columbia."

I also like "The Internal Revenue Service is not an agency of the United States" and "payment of taxes is voluntary."
