We’re at that time again, it comes around every 4 years and grips the country (and no, we’re not talking about the good weather), that’s right… the 2018 FIFA World Cup has begun.
In the 2014 FIFA World Cup, England only scored 2 goals in the Group Stages of the tournament, but with our first win under our belts and 2 goals already scored, dare we say it…. things are looking more hopeful this year.
Speaking of goals, we have a couple of our own this year and one of them we thought would tie in quite nicely during the World Cup is Urinals.
Now, you may be thinking ‘what on earth do urinals have to do with the World Cup’, well quite a lot, they both involve shooting for a start, but not always hitting the target. We’ve all walked in to a disgusting washroom that can make you come out feeling un-clean. Most of us guys have used a urinal and sometimes in can be quite easy to miss, only fuelling the fire of an un-friendly washroom.
A study conducted at Schiphol Airport* found that their cleaning costs we’re high due to the state of their urinals and washrooms, so they came up with an innovative way to tackle this growing cost.
They found that when several men used a urinal, they liked to use something as a target. As a result, they tested using a sticker of a tiny fly in the urinal which would act as a target to aim towards. As quoted “It turns out that men, in their urinal behaviour, cannot resist peeing on things, especially if they look as though they might wash away.” It is claimed that this can help reduce spillage by up to 80%, helping the cleanliness of your washrooms, something we all want to achieve.
Who knew such a tiny change could potentially make such a difference, let’s just hope whoever shoots for England is aiming for the right goal.
