I have a predilection for the slightly bizarre and when I came across a web page explaining the difficulty of peeing on your foot1 I couldn’t resist sharing it. I have no idea who wrote it but whoever it was wanted to do it in an attempt to cure the said foot of athelete’s foot. They’d tried out a remedy involving iodine and ammonia, found it hurt too much and decided to try this other method instead. Quite why they didn’t just head off down to the chemist and buy one of the myriad of athelete’s foot powders available is beyond my understanding.
1 The piece was written by a man. I imagine that women will not find it quite so difficult.
