passing the time / water

In the jazz club last night, while waiting for the concert to start, people were fiddling with their phones. To fit in, I reacquainted myself with the first app I ever downloaded, called Urinal Challenge.

The aim is to answer all 25 questions correctly. The first few are easy.




The first answer is obvious. You should choose the free urinal at far right.

Most of the questions are common sense if you're a normal male like myself. For example, question 7.





By the time you get to question 14 you have to think really carefully. I messed up. After I guessed wrong, the green arrow revealed the official correct choice:




I had chosen the position next to it. Can you understand my reasoning? My personal best is 22 out of 25, equivalent to 88%. At university that's a Distinction.

    Abdul doesn't have a smart phone, but I managed to find a version of this game on the laptop, and it kept him amused, but very confused, for about half an hour.

  3. Good guess Mingers, but no. Try thinking more strategic than biological.

    Wilson suggested that perhaps there was a dead mouse in the one you chose.

  5. First reason. If it came to a conflict, the middle guy could be pushed over, whereas the guy on the left has the wall to support him. Also, the two men on the far right could jump him from behind.

    Second reason. The left hand guy could be on a short fuse already, feeling hemmed in by the wall. The right hand guy has breathing space on his right.

    The staff are wondering whether you can make a similar quiz for pit latrines.

  7. Good idea Mingers. Exploit the emerging Malawian smartphone market.

    Mackers. Denial's all very well, but I'm sure I remember Samye having toilets. Maybe they use more enlightened practices now.
