Ed aims to please, and he’d damned well better, because he can be ticketed if he doesn’t:
Apparently, the new national character problem that’s being purged in China is men missing the toilet when urinating. This has been an issue for many years, and has usually just resulting in signs being posted above toilets reminding users to hit the mark or janitors armed with mops who clean up after each pisser who doesn’t quite get it all in the bowl. But Shenzhen just instituted a new law decreeing that any man who pisses outside the pot will be fined 100 RMB (around $16).
I followed that second link, and now I wish I hadn’t:
Chinese toilet discipline can be notoriously wayward, with pictures of people defecating in public sometimes appearing on weibo.
At the very least, they should fine someone twice as much for that.
