So how much fluid does YOUR bladder hold?

Talk about distracted driving. That one definitely beats just trying to apply mascara while driving Laughing

What a YouTube hit a video of that maneuver would be.

Having to wait for a stall while listening to the sound of someone filling a bath tub--the entire tub--when your own needs are pressingly urgent, is sheer misery. Have there ever been any incidents of restroom rage in such situations?

Thanks to this thread, I am now studying my own stream. Generally I think it is somewhere between a trickle and a drinking fountain--rather indifferent, adequate, but not deeply satisfying. But, ah...those occasional deeply satisfying times...well, that's getting a little too personal...

As as edit, I wasn't trying to pull down jeans, while traveling long distances I wear things like sweat/yoga pants.

In Japan, where traffic jams can take several hours, they have found a solution

Unfortunately, this wasn't a planned situation. Very Happy

@chai2,
I never measured the volume of fluid, but I have a scale that measures my body weight with a precision of 100 mg. By subtracting my after-weight from my before-weight, I found out that my bladder holds up to 700ml, which is 23 fluid ounces. This was my absolute limit, though. Normal amounts vary, the average being about 10 fluid ounces.

@chai2,
Not enough.

The hell with crying me a river, I want to pee a river.

Once a month.

@roger,
Back in my days, people were asked to collect urine in large jugs for 24 hours.
I've no idea if this is still common.

@ossobuco,
Still common?

This was never common.

When was "your day?"

Or more to the point, what was your dimension?

Really osso, collecting urine for 24 hours in large jugs was a common practice where you once lived?

@ossobuco,
It was a common lab test, re kidney function. It may still be.

Our lab started out with an immunological orientation, and grew from there.

@Finn dAbuzz,
I was head tech in several laboratories. I stopped in 1980.

Yes, the 24 hour collections were common. I lived in west los angeles, home of many well regarded med centers, and that little lab I worked at became one of the world's most prestigious.

You are taunting me out of ignorance.

@ossobuco,
I'm not taunting you.

I have no doubt you were a highly proficent professional.

Dial back the paranoia.

Collecting urine may have been common in the very isolated community of California med lab workers, but it was hardly common within the general population. Read what you wrote, and appreciate that we don't all have The History of Ossobuco committed to memory when we read your posts.
