Some of you remember brother Jeff's (worried guy) experiments in urinary stream
distance performed at his gravel patch. This last weekend I was deer hunting with my family
and had a chance to collect some data on my own. Yes, the volume of my stream is about 50-60%
of pre-op, but now I know that this is offset by greater distance. Thus applying the formula
stand here = pee way over there
I assume that my pressure is as good as ever. At least my boots stay dry.

What triggered this post was the following story
green.foxnews.com/2009/11/13/british-gardeners-told-go-green-pee-outdoors/

I had to set up the pee gravel test range because the double X chromosome holder of the family complained about the odor and dead spot on the grass. Women! I noticed the British recommendation is to do it on a mulch pile. Very sensible.

Now Geezer get out there and collect those measurements: nozzle height above ground and horizontal distance. You can't make a graph without data.

Goodlife, When I get to the end of delivery with my new shortened, fluidic nozzle, my stream occasionally ends up behind me! Try explaining that to a XX holder. I might have to put a pee pad on the back side of my shorts.
