What if I'm looking for a bathroom, I can't find one, and my bladder explodes?

Bob was right!

If it doesn't, it can make your eyeballs float.

Seinfeld addressed this years ago.

I have friends who call that foreplay.

There is a simple test to find out if you are in danger of having a bladder explosion. Look in the mirror. If your eyes are a golden yellow, seek immediate relief.

Yes, if you hold it too long, urine trouble.

I saw Bladder Explosion open for The Doors.

If holding your pee could kill you I would have found that out in 7th Grade home room, when there were 5 in line for the bathroom pass and the one who then had it out took 20 minutes to come back.

FWIW - it is believed that Samuel Pepys (he of the Diary) died of a burst bladder. He attended a dinner party one night, and at that time it was considered rude to leave the table for any reason. So he held on - and died soon after.

What's the best strategy to save yourself from a life-threatening bladder explosion?

Cant't really say it will immediately but trust me it's damaging.
