What surprises me about this post is the extremely low count for "puddles of urine". I probably saw five "people actually peeing" on my way to work this morning, and countless puddles of urine. Maybe your line is cleaner than my line. Lucky.

I've always wondered why there wasn't just one urinal in the corner on the far end of the platforms. People are going to pee anyways; might as well try and contain part of the flow. Or maybe that's what those drains that run along the sides of the corridors are actually for. They're just one big urinal.

I'm right with ddj on the urinal idea. Pure genius.

I guess the low count was because I didn't take the 4 home, I walked from Barbes.
