I gave up trying to piddle it all out. It is like Zeno's Paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise. I can pee 200 ml in one minute -Call that rate "Achilles". My body makes urine at a about
2000 ml per day - Call that rate "the Tortoise". If I sit on the toilet for 5 minutes, the Tortoise makes 1.4 ml - about
27 drops . If I manage to hold it for 5 minutes and let Achilles squirt it out in 0.42 sec., the Tortoise will make another 27 drops. While Achilles waits and squirts it out, the Tortoise makes more drops. You can never catch up.
The technique Paul recommends above works, and gives you a 20 minute edge on the Tortoise by squirting out about
5 ml more than either Achilles or you can.
Just don't let anyone see you doing it in a public restroom as a wide stance is required. ;-)
