Ridiculous Study of the Week: Bathroom Line

Ghent University researchers have studied why women’s bathroom lines are longer. Yup, that was studied.

And here is what they found:

  • Men’s Rooms Accommodate More Occupants
  • More Time Spent
  • Less Space + More Time Spent = Longer Lines

Yup, that is science for you.  Feel smarter now?

    . . . which is why, in an emergency, I use the Men’s, with a “guard” as required.

    … And I thought it was because they were all in there talking about me.
