Ceai Complet: May 22, 2008

Pub urinal computer games launched

TWO Belgian beer fans have launched a video
game named Place to Pee, which allows players to fly down ski slopes or kill aliens while relieving themselves at urinals.

Werner Dupont, a software developer and Bart Geraets, an electrical engineer, got the idea while drinking beers.

The Place to Pee' booth is designed for two users at a time and offers two games - blowing up aliens in outer space or skiing down a virtual slope.

Gamers hit their target by aiming at sensors positioned on either side of the urinal.

A specially designed paper cone allows women to play too, the inventors say.

Their Place to Pee logo resembles Manneken Pis, the little urinating boy fountain that is among Brussels' top sightseeing attractions.
Too bad Mayhugh's "stage fright" will prevent him from ever enjoying this. And I just changed my AL-only fantasy baseball team name to "Manneken Pis".

I didn't realize the severity of Mayhugh's stage fright until last weekend on the golf course. We'd tee off and then he'd take off running up the tree line along the fairway so he could relieve himself before we caught up to him in our carts.

I mean, he's my little brother that I lived with for 2 years; and it's like we were raised by two different mothers or something...

Not four years...

...but five and a half.
