When nature calls, how quickly do you answer? How quickly can you do solegally? Sure, when a fullbladder settles into your consciousness, flailingquickly to a designated facility might make you feel less like a person and morelike a urine pi ata. Letting loose—that is to say, urinating in public—is alwaysa literal option but usually it comes with a price tag. The penalties varysignificantly by country, even by city.

當你內急的時候,你能忍多久?你能忍到你可以尿的地方再尿嗎?當然,如果你飽脹的膀胱已習慣於你的公德心,那麼當你不在指定地方小便的時候,你可能會覺得你不像是個人類,而是個尿罐。放縱自我,也就是當眾小便,總歸是人之常情,但你往往要為此付出代價。不同國傢,甚至不同城市,對隨地小便的懲罰都有所不同。

When traveling, it really is best to know what s up and plan accordingly.Because when your phone battery threatens swift death thus rendering yourtoilet-finder app useless, you need to know if relief is worth its price.

當你旅遊時,你最好事先知道這些代價並為此做好準備,如果因為手機沒電而無法使用找廁所的應用軟件,那麼你需要瞭解一下你的放縱是否值得瞭這些代價。

如果你遊覽這座首都城市時喝瞭太多啤酒,你可以放心隨地小便。真的。在柏林,這是合法行為。當然,如果你是個男人,你可能會放得更開一些,對你來說這可能就隻是一次不在廁所尿尿的行為。你可能覺得這種行為有點粗魯,但是它確實是合法的。
