Hydrodynamic Ballistic Urinal

Splash Deflection for the Discerning Discharger of Liquid Waste
  [vote for,

Much like the angled metal backstop at the end of an indoor firing range (looks like [>] from the side,) the hydrodynamic ballistic urinal will angle splashes and droplets toward the center of the urinal. The base will have a small lip (looks a bit like [(>] from the top,) with holes in the inner facing side to catch the droplets that spray amiss and are pulled downward by gravity. Different solutions to the problem has been posted in the past, but the physics of this notion [link], as well as the hygiene[link], seem a little more effective, in my humble.

       [Tabs], that's perfect so long as it isn't incorporated into an on-site "Pneumatic Mail Delivery Tube." Sure, you'd save on seperate air-pressure systems but think of all the ruined inter-office correspondence. :-D Suction would help prevent the pervasive stale urine odor. You get my [+] for the hoover-standi-john.

       How about a urinal with one of those drip-proof tops, like on liquid-detergent bottles, where there's an extra rim around the spout that catches overflow and drains it back into the bottle? Except that you'd have to be in the bottle, which means you'd have to be in the urinal. Never mind.

       [Ander], if the inner tube (as opposed to inner-tube) were large enough, I think I could utilize that without . . . ugh, touching the sides.

       Wow...anytime you mix human excrement and ballistics, you've got my vote.

       Perhaps a zero-G environment and a gentle fan-forced breeze would work? All droplets simple drift away on the breeze, are carbonated and recycled back into the beer delivery system?

       Find a bush*. They are naturally designed to channel all possible water directly to the roots beneath it.   

       *Note: Bushes in the wild, NOT in someone's yard. They get mad.

       [destructionism], you sick, sick puppy. Bushes are designed to aid in the regulation of genital temperature. It has absolutely nothing to do with controlling the flow of urine. That's disgusting.

       [contracts] Saying your mind was in the gutter is an understatement. You're head first in the storm drain with your feet sticking out the top. :D
