They sure are if you want to keep your knickers dry. Being out in front doesn't seem like there'd be much chance of that. Sort of a super dangerous bidet.

Did you know that navy slang or navy terminology is used by the Marine Corps too?
In a Marine barracks or other building the bathroom is 'the head' the floor is 'the deck', the walls are called 'bulkheads' etc.
