A pissoir also known in French as a vespasienne is a French invention, common in Europe, that provides a urinal in public space with a lightweight structure. The availability of pissoirs is likely to reduce urination onto buildings, sidewalks, or streets. In the spring of the city government of Paris decided to install the first public urinals on the major boulevards. They were put in place by the summer, but in July they were put to a completely different purpose; providing materials for street barricades during the French Revolution of Having a simple cylindrical shape, open on the street side, and ornately decorated on the other side as well as the cap, they were popularly known as colonnes Rambuteau. In response, Rambuteau suggested the name vespasiennes ,  in reference to the 1st-century Roman emperor Titus Flavius Vespasianus , who placed a tax on urine collected from public toilets for use in tanning.

My weird experience was in elementary school. There was yellow liquid soap in the soap dispensers, and one of my classmates told me that he poured out the soap and replaced it with his urine. Being young and gullible, I believed him. It was years before I could use the soap to wash my hands in a public restroom, since I always wondered if it really was soap. Hahahaha kids say the funniest things.
