Researchers in the Department of Urology at Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands pooled and analyzed eleven studies comparing the effects of sitting versus standing on three key "urodynamic parameters": maximum flow rate, voiding time (the time that it takes to pee), and post-void residual volume (the amount of urine remaining in the bladder).

Heh! The researchers "pooled" their data...

No doubt a great deal of beer was consumed.

If you leave the seat up, someone will get pissed off

Sven, what the *hell* does the size of your enormous prostate have to with deserving of honorable mention regarding the publication.

you aim Too, please

He wanted to require them to sit? Who has to be the toilet cop?

That's more than I ever wanted to know about men's urine.

Undoubtedly the research was peer reviewed..

I saw the Urodynamic Parameters warming up for Beck back in '94. Helluva show.

Seriously, what's the big deal?
I had a minor operation to open a constricted urethra. It took ten minutes, worked fine and left me with the unexpected result that I now shoot a scattergun rather than a sniper's weapon. In short (ha!), I spray like Stewie, our dog, could only wish.
So, I sit.
There are no negatives except for a sudden affection for flowers and the color pink.

OK, who leaked the report?

*snork* @ Jim

I always wanted to be a science whiz, but none of my theories would hold water.
