Citizen Journalists Prove 'Pee-Deflecting' Walls Don't Work

The urine-repellent coating at our two testing sites did not repel streams of piss. It may be that our jets of urine were not sharply angled enough. Or the walls could have lost their reflective effectiveness because of age, though they were coated in July and the paint distributor said they should last about a year.

    Piss Off (TM)

    The first "wall" is a chain link fence with slats. The second one is a concrete block. Do either of those spots actually have the "pee repellent" sign on them? Is there another nearby wall that is more of an actual wall?

    Also, a squeeze bottle of water should work just as fine for the test.

      If you don't use real pee, someone, probably someone who convinced the city to pay for it, is going to claim that it's not a valid test because of reasons.

      Why don't they just electrify the chainlink?
      Or do the French thing of just putting a urinal on the wall.

      Where is your sense of wonder, Citizen Scientist?
