‘xkcd’ Creator Explains Urinal Protocol with the Power of Math
Randall Munroe, the creator of the hilarious, has got peeing down to a science. Literally. On the ‘xkcd’ blog, Munroe explained the International Choice of Urinal Protocol — e.g. how guys pick which urinal to use in a bathroom– and broke it down for his readers with formulas, charts, and graphs.
“When a guy goes into the bathroom, which urinal does he pick? Most guys are familiar with the International Choice of Urinal Protocol. It’s discussed at length elsewhere, but the basic premise is that the first guy picks an end urinal, and every subsequent guy chooses the urinal which puts him furthest from anyone else peeing. At least one buffer urinal is required between any two guys or Awkwardness ensues.”
