Salaryman stat of the day

40


Percent of Japanese men who sit down while urinating, according to a survey by toilet manufacturer Matsushita Electric Works. From the Small Print column of Metropolis magazine. I’ve read elsewhere that it is because their wives force them to.

More numbers from Nippon on the Japan by Numbers page on the right, and more salaryman explanation also coming up.

    Interesting statistic. I suppose most are apt to miss after their nightly boozing sessions.

    Nice theory, I’ll add that to a future “Why do 40% of Japanese men piss sitting down?” entry!
