This is a new age we're living in, where gender norms are being flipped on their heads, upsetting the previously established status quo. No longer are men expected to be alpha males, throwing their weight around with a puffed out chest.

...

Look, we all do it at one point or another and there's an infinite number of reasons why, so let's turn to the internet to hear what they have to say.


Reddit user, u/Tow_The_Line_000, curiously wanted to know:

Men who pee sitting down, when did you start and why?

Suddenly, Mommy And Daddy Aren't The Ones Cleaning

When you are the one cleaning the bathroom, you realize how nasty the floor gets from splashing

CalgaryXTC

Yeah I started when I moved out and I had to clean my own toilet. Also it was never a problem until I grew too tall to not splash.

Wobble Hose

I started because when I was drunk I would sway from side to side and spray everywhere.

My_Dog_Rolls_In_Poo

I came here to say the same. I also learned to just sit facing the wall and straddling the seat when u gotta pee. You get the extra benefit of being able to lay your head down on the tank if you need to.

I did have a girl break up with me because I didn't stand but whatever.

100% Accuracy, Every Time

I sit if I have to go in the middle of the night when I'm still groggy. it's just easier.

Not only that, but you don't have to turn on the light to aim and blind yourself

Splish, Splash

Once I realized how much splash happens when standing up.

It's nasty.

info_mation

Just look at the floor in a public restroom. It's not entirely because people have sh-t aim, piss splashes and aerosols everywhere

ssshhhhhhhhhhhhh

Drain The Snake

Idk if it's just me but, you know how you always hear "you can never get the last drop out when you pee and it always just leaks out later"? I realized the last drop always came out whenever I got done peeing and then sat down. That doesn't happen to you when you sit when you pee, I'm not a physiologist but my theory is when you stand you bend or kink the lines somehow and it doesn't allow you to get the last drop out. But if you sit it allllll comes out and there's no rebellious drip.

Sitting while peeing is superior and I'm never going back.

Seems Like You Didn't Really Have A Choice

Grew up with females, I only learned that you could pee standing at 10 years old

Get That Little Bit Of Extra Learning In

Started when I was a teen, easier to keep reading the inevitable book I was always carrying around. Now it's a phone, but same principle.

Well, At Least You're Honest

Pure laziness.

Whatsareality

If someone invents a toilet that lets me pee while lying down, I would use it.

Before that, sitting will have to suffice.

A Fork In The Road Of Life

I'm 6'4 the height gives more distance for poor aim or an untimely fork to find a wall.

Just can't chance that sh-t anymore.

tupeeonahamster

EVERYTIME it's forked both streams or even sometimes 3 have completely missed.

Line Up Your Sights

My mom yelled at me for having sh-t aim

"its not a gun TOM, look straight ahead and do IT"

That Logic Holds Tight

It keeps the toilet clean. No splashed piss on the rim or the floor. I can read for a few mins. If it's dark, I don't have to turn the light on and mess up my sleepiness. If I feel a poo coming, I'm already in battle position. It's designed to sit on. Why deny it?

In Today's Day And Age, This Must Be The Real Reason

When I'm at work and want to play a game on my phone, these cheeks are hitting that seat until my legs feel like tv static.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
