No space loo, how to find the cleanest toilet and modelling at urinals

According to Popular Mechanics, we won’t be getting to use space toilets any time soon. Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’s company, which plans to offer private individuals the chance to go to space, are not planning to put toilets on their rockets that will bring paying passengers to space, six at a time. The total flight time will be between 41 and 42 minutes, so Jeff says we’ll be able to hold it in.

How do you choose the cleanest toilet in a row of cubicles? Don’t go for the middle one! Apparently, when humans are faced with a choice between equal options, they tend to choose the middle one. The┬áSun is reporting on research that shows that the middle toilet tends to be the most used, but the toilets on the edges vary according to gender. Men tend to use the one nearest the door, while women tend to use the one furthest away. For this reason, the cleanest men’s cubicle is likely to be the one furthest from the door and the cleanest women’s cubicle is likely to be the one nearest.
