I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".
Source: Prof David Voas, University of Essex

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH
Source: New Scientist 27 July 2013.

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Why have these things started appearing all over Leeds? Has anyone
used one? Wouldn't you feel a little exposed?

Mmmm. Classy. No, I've never used one but was wondering what happens when they get full? Are the walls hollow? How many gallons will it take???

hildegard says:

I don't think we need these - instead all walls, shutters, street furniture etc, should be copper-clad to 1.5m & electrified at night...

We seem to have trouble with bladder training for boys....

Gael says:

if Leeds are going for pissoirs does this mean that Lille are going for smelly bus stop corners?

They're all over Holland, especially when there's something on.
Beats using the bushes or the corner of a wall.

Do they have to be right on the Headrow thou? Couldn't they at least be on a side street?

Spiderbaby says:

I think they should put them in York on race days - might help stop the be-suited gentlemen from pissing in churchyards, letterboxes and shop doorways for starters.

I'm surprised that the pissoir is making a comeback. I wonder if Montreal is considering the idea.
Are these connected to the sewer or does someone have to come around and empty them? Can miscreants pick them up and move them around?
FF, I loved your comment.
