Etiquette & superstition: urinating

One of my least favorite dreams is having to urinate and not being able to do so. I have some problems with my dopamine levels, however, and this problem is sometimes associated with sleepwalking. Perhaps it’s just as well that I don’t have dreams about being able to urinate successfully.

ETIQUETTE: Everything a man needs to know about urination in a public restroom can be found in Phil Rice’s short documentary from 2006. For the time being, this documentary can be found here.

SUPERSTITION: To cure a child of bed-wetting, you can do a few things:

  • Conceal a piece of his clothing in a coffin that contains a dead corpse
  • hollow out a turnip and make the child urinate into the turnip, then hang the turnip in the chimney
  • have the child urinate on a pig’s toe and then bury the toe
