RunPee is Tweeting Too Hard

We found a cute Tweet meme called TweetingtooHard and wanted to be a part of it. Basically, it’s a application where people submit boastful, self-serving, backpatting tweets.

Here is Dan’s beaut:

RunPee: “Trying real hard to keep it humble.But 15,900 results for Googling “RunPee Genius” is making it difficult.”

We’re at Number Three in the What’s Hot category and gunning for number one. Help us show just how self-aggrandizing we can be by giving us a few more pats on the back:

Yes, take me to TweetingtooHard so I can help stroke your insignificant ego! <———

All we have to say is: BWAHAHAHA.

Harry Potter and the Urine Points – Chinese Translation

I love reading reviews of RunPee.com, but the best is reading a Chinese translation. BOOM!

Chinese review of RunPee and the new Harry Potter movie

FYI – RunPee is HUGE is China. We are talking our most avid readers, devourers of PeeTimes. We’re working right now on a Chinese version of the site to accomodate the demand. We expect to have the Chinese version of RunPee up in the next month or two.

Original PeeTimes from Harry Potter Found in Garbage

Orlando, FL – Though they were thought to have been lost forever, the original notes from which the PeeTimes for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince are based on, have been found.

Archaeologists working in the kitchen where Dan Florio – AKA polyGeek – lives, unearthed these fragile documents from beneath a layer of day old coffee grounds. Working with care and precision the papers were extracted in nearly pristine condition.

Bill Gates and many others have already inquired if these documents may one day be available for auction. Sources close to Dan who wish to remain anonymous stated that it is likely that at least a portion of this collection will go to auction to help raise money for one of Dan’s favorite charities – his bank account.

Photos of these relics were taken just before the documents were permanently sealed in glass casings filled with a pure nitrogen atmosphere, so as to inhibit any further deterioration. Dan wanted us to be sure to mention that the photos were taken with an iPhone camera – which also runs the RunPee iPhone application that you can download for just 99 cents from the iTunes app store. He enjoined us, “be sure to remind everyone to tell their friends about it.”

original PeeTimes for Harry Potter You can see here the number “916” in the upper-right corner. This is unique among the collection of PeeTimes. It is generally thought that this is an indication of when the movie began – not the previews and such – but the actual movie. This would make sense, because as we all know each PeeTime is given an approximate time into the movie that it occurs. Therefore, knowing when the actual movie began would be paramount.

We can also see that another time has been written down to the far left and then scratched out. No one is sure why this was done. It is especially confusing since no correction is given. Perhaps Dan just screwed it up.

The rest of the PeeTime follows the general form of a note regarding the cue to RunPee followed by a few notes that will become the plot synopsis of what will happen during this PeeTime.

original PeeTimes for Harry Potter This classic example is flawless. We can see what can only be interpreted as the time in which this PeeTime began and ended. Followed by the cue and then notes about the plot synopsis.

Notice that this scene is part of what happens in the notes in the first PeeTime listed above. It is possible that what seemed like a good time to begin a PeeTime was in fact followed by an even better PeeTime which is detailed here.

original PeeTimes for Harry Potter At the very top is what can only be a potential PeeTime that never made it. You can see that it is listed to begin at 10:01. The PeeTime that is actually detailed here began at 10:02. Clearly this was another false start that lead to a new PeeTime.

What is curious is the reference to “Red”. It is possible that Dan couldn’t remember the hugely important main character’s name of Ron, the Young Master Weasley.

Many who like to think that Dan is without flaw have suggested that “Red” is simply shorthand for “Ron.” However, that is patently absurd. Both names have the same number of letters. It is obvious that this is the best evidence yet that Dan is fallible.

original PeeTimes for Harry Potter Another classic example of a PeeTime. Note however the numerous bullet points in this one. Some might question that a scene with this many details may not make for a good PeeTime.
original PeeTimes for Harry Potter Once again “Ron” is still being referred to as “Red”. It’s amazing to think that Dan still hadn’t picked up on one of the main characters names by this point. However, to cut him some slack, Dan must stay focused on finding PeeTimes.
original PeeTimes for Harry Potter Here we have an oddity. This PeeTime is clearly scratched out yet it does appear in the PeeTimes listings. Looking closely at the details of the submitted PeeTimes we can see that a RunPee user named Martyn entered this PeeTime into RunPee.com.
original PeeTimes for Harry Potter Another PeeTime that didn’t make the cut.

Why We’re Not RunPoo

A few RunPee fans have asked why we don’t list PooTimes, or wondered why we don’t start a sister site about pooping during movies. I know it’s all in good fun, but to answer a silly question seriously, we really think that if you have to RunPoo during a film, it’s probably pretty urgent. You are going to go anyway. And you are probably going to go as soon as you hear nature’s call, movie break or no movie break. The Colon - wikipedia creative commons

There are two kinds of poo – the immediate kind that can’t wait (what did you eat earlier, anyway?), and the regular ‘movement’ kind that can probably hold out for the end of the movie and – hopefully – your own toilet. 🙂

For moms with kids in the theater, poo needs do take on a third kind of meaning: the kind that is a regular movement, but located in a person with little to no bowel control. Yes, your toddlers and young kids. It’s like needing a really long PeeTime.

For those moms and dads, we suggest you arm yourself with our RunPee iPhone app, or print off a list of PeeTimes from the website – and make the best of it. 🙂

The Pee Pee Bottle for Toddlers and RunPee Users

I so want a Pee Pee Bottle. I saw this online and thought to myself, “self, what you need is a pot to piss in/bottle to pee in.” I know it’s for children, but HEY, they come in pink or blue and say “Pee Pee” on them. They look easy enough for a gal to use. I can’t speak for grown men, but I know this could help out the ladies:

  • on long cross country drives
  • at nasty gas station bathrooms on said long cross country drives
  • when trapped on a bus in Mexico going from Mazatlan to Durango when the bathroom is broken and you seriously have to go (I hear this can happen)
  • in the middle of the night, in a tent in Minnesota, where the mosquitoes are waiting for your bare butt and you can’t sleep because you, again, seriously have to run pee

My Pee Pee Bottle graphic
We here at RunPee.com applaud this kind of innovation. Actually, we’ve been thinking of offering a RunPee bottle of our own. It would be Gatorade Yellow (the better to hide whether it contains pee pee) and read, “Because a Bladder is a Terrible Thing to Hold.” What you choose to do with the bottle is up to you, of course. Maybe ask the concession clerks to fill it up with Mountain Dew and take it in the theaters? Just saying.

I do think the Pee Pee Bottle would be a nice help for moms at movie theaters. You get your PeeTimes from RunPee and casually stroll to the ladies room, child in tow, avoiding the whole germy worry about clean restroom seats.

You can even get the bottles customized with your child’s name! Or your name! Perfect for bladders in need. As the website states, “At this time, My Pee Pee Bottle® stands alone! Nothing compares to My Pee Pee Bottle®, Nothing!”

RunPee Movie Posters – Terminated, Transported and Transformed

I was having a little fun with the RunPee concept. Yeah, I am a geek; please accept that as an axiom.

GiJoe

I have a vague idea for an ad involving Wolverine and trying to pee with his claws extended. I’ll get to that when I have a few extra minutes.

Do you have any suggestions for other ads? Just let me know. Or even create some yourself if you want and tell me about it in the comments below.

World’s Worst Toilet Awards

I love talking toilet trash. That’s kinda what’s appealing about RunPee, in a sense. I mean, we all “go” … several times a day, every day, if you’re normal. So of course talking about peeing is interesting, even if socially we can’t admit it.

That’s why I found the Titanic Awards website so morbidly fascinating. Want to see some of the world’s WORST TOILETS, ever? With real photos, videos and smell-o-vision? Okay, not the scents, but you can probably imagine how bad these toilets smell. Who hasn’t been there?

One post discusses a poll whereby voters chose the countries with the worst restrooms (here’s looking at you, China). Another post describes – with Techicolor photo – a transatlantic flight “with a backed up toilet spilling human excrement down the aisle for seven hours.” Apparently Continental issued vouchers as an apology. Maybe we should refer to them now as “Incontinental”…?

There are other “Worsts” categories on the Titanic Awards, but I wanted to give a shout out to them for helping protect us from absolutely hideous heads worldwide.

Become a Pee-On with Perks at RunPee.com

The Few, the Proud: the SuperPee Posse (this could be you) bolex camera wikipedia commons

I am pretty much entering the pee times myself, and hand moderating all PeeTime submissions. That means I see a lot of movies.

Eventually, I will select a group of people who will have special privileges to enter PeeTimes, those I can count on to take “charge” of seeing a movie and selecting moderator-status PeeTimes.

The bulk of the content will come from these Pee-Ons. These elite Pee-ons will get

  • a bio page and website link on this blog,
  • free RunPee Staff T-shirts and sweatshirts ( that cannot be purchased by the public), and
  • maybe even a special glow in the dark pen, like the kind we managers use to make PeeTimes.
  • And I’m sure there will be other forms of compensation we have not thought of yet, besides knowing you’ve made a difference in the comfort of bladders everywhere. We’d like to be able to offer premier movie tickets at some point and other hard-to-get perks in the industry.
  • If you are extraordinary in your Pee-On task, you might be the first person we hire for pay. We can’t keep doing this ourselves forever. If you can prove you lovelovelove movies and can find the best PeeTimes bar none, expect to see an offer trickle down your way.

I’m still discussing the details with people and so far I’ve only invited one person outside my family to be a Pee-On. It will take a while to grow this team, but eventually they will be providing everyone with the quality RunPeeTimes that you should expect from a classy website like RunPee.com.

As always I’m interested in hearing what the RunPee.com users think. If you have an idea that would make the site better – aside from redoing it in HTML (which – update – is now done!) – then please let me know.

Here at RunPee.com we DO give a piss!

WheretoWee and RunPee – It’s all about the bladder

Bladders are becoming big business: RunPee has a new friend in WheretoWee.com.

Their mission: to boldly GO where no one has gone before! Or rather, to tell you where to go. Which is great, in a sense. I mean, we tell you WHEN to go and they tell you WHERE. I think it’s a match made in heaven.

Here’s what they say: “An iPhone app designed with your #1 and #2 needs in mind, Where to Wee finds the closest washrooms to you and what other people are saying about them.”

I can see this being a great mobile application. What if I am traveling in downtown Seattle and have to really go? I probably don’t want to squat under the elevated railroad with the rest of the homeless Seattle populace. This app could get me to a free bathroom that – one hopes – might even be clean. 🙂

It looks like the app (and most of the site) is still under development, but I did sign up to get notified when they are good to “go”… heh…
