Peeing standing up could become illegal for men in Europe.
The movement to create “sitting only” public restrooms started in Sweden and is gaining steam, with socialist and feminist political groups aiming to make restrooms cleaner.
Some of these activists have actually begun carrying signs saying, “Drop your trousers and sit” – with a picture of a man peeing standing up covered by a big red “X.” (DigitalJournal.com)

MIDWEST CITY, OK — It was just after 3:00 Monday afternoon when things went haywire at a Walmart in Midwest City. A mother was shopping at the Neighborhood Market near Reno and Midwest Blvd. when a man grabbed her 2-year-old daughter.
The man held the little girl at knifepoint and threatened to kill her.
Syd Porter from the Midwest City Police Department said they were forced to shoot and kill the man.
“He would not put down the child and continued to make threats that he would hurt this little child. When you have a suspect counting down on a child’s life we’re going to have to take appropriate action and unfortunately we had to use deadly force, but the little child is ok,” Porter says.
After 30 minutes of negotiating with him an officer shot him to save the little girl.
Sid Porter, Assistant Chief of Police for Midwest City says, “Eventually, he basically, began doing a countdown with this child’s life. At that time one of our officers had to use deadly force to take the suspect; to stop the threat of this little child.”
Police are working on a motive right now. Witnesses said they heard the man ranting about his family and wanting to see his kids. Donita Owens said he was clearly very upset.
“He was saying he wants to go home and see his kids too. He just wants to go home and see his family. Then later he was saying he had nothing to live for nothing lose,” Ms. Owens explains.
The woman and child were not injured. No names have been released at this point.

Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch has apparently become younger -- in death. His tombstone lists his birthday as December 12th, 1942 instead of 1924.
Koch, who served as mayor of New York City from 1978 through 1989, died at the age of 88 in February. The mistake on his tombstone was unearthed by NBC 4 New York, who add an interesting note -- if the birthdate on the tombstone was correct, he would have been a child during World War Two, but the tombstone also notes that he was a member of the armed forces during that war.
Koch planned his burial years before he died and pre-ordered his own tombstone, but the marker didn't have his date of birth engraved on it when he was buried. That was done earlier this month. Tommy Flynn of Flynn Funeral and Cremation Memorial Services acknowledged the mistake, saying it was "an inadvertent error." Flynn said he feels "terrible" about the mistake and vowed "I have to make it right. I will correct it."
Diane Coffey, Koch's former chief of staff, said that he might have found humor it the mistake, but added, "As Ed Koch used to say, 'It's always important to correct the record.'"
