What is this thing in my friend's bathroom?

My friend has this thing in her bathroom beside the sink and she doesn't know what it is. It was there when she moved in and the former owners are long gone. Does anyone know what it does and does it have an official name? Like, would I be able to find a new one in a store? Here is a small gallery of 3 photos I took of it. Thank you!

why do men spit in urinals and keep flushing while pissing?

OK, weird question this week, but I have wondered about this for a while. I've noticed in public bathrooms there are a lot of men who either 1) spit in the urinal continuously while peeing or 2) keep pulling the flush handle while standing there pissing or 3) do both of these at the same time. I'm sure there are multiple reasons for why to do this, but I am curious as to your speculations about why they are doing it. Is the spitting some way of being macho? Is the constant flushing some way of disposing that which is "dirty"? the "normative" behavior is to piss and then flush, so why this variant (which also wastes a lot of water BTW)? Why the combination of both spitting and flushing? I think we may reveal something about male psychology or social ideology here.

What will fit into this oddly shaped bathroom space?

We're redoing a bathroom in a house we plan to sell. It's a very old house, so nothing is quite standard. Between the new sink cabinet and the stacked washer / dryer there is a space that's about 10 inches wide, 24 inches deep and 80 inches high. We'd like to make it functional in some way. It also should look nice. [more inside]

1950s Bathroom / Bar Graffiti

I'm helping the art director on a 1950s period webisode series. There are a few shots which are inside of a bar bathroom. We're interested in recreating graffiti that would have existed in that era and before, since the bar has been open about twenty years. I've come across references to 'Kilroy was here', but not much else. Can anyone help me out?

Using wood for a shower floor

I am having my bathroom professionally remodeled and I am strongly considering having the shower floor made out of wood (most likely Teak or Ipe), resting over conventional concrete drainage. Any experience, advice or vendor referrals from people who have done this or from professionals would be appreciated. I'm particularly concerned with the ongoing maintenance and durability compared to traditional pebble or tile shower flooring. Is it worth the elegance and tactile comfort enhancements? [more inside]

Faux Stone Everywhere

Wifey and I are looking for bathroom and kitchen tile, and we're frustrated by the amount of 'earth tone' colors -- yellows and browns and tans, which are generally the color of the things you want to flush away in the bathroom, if you get my drift.

urinal bathroom etiquette

I work in an office with one bathroom on the floor. In the bathroom, there are 3 urinals, side-by-side, with short dividers between them. Given that when I use the bathroom, there is about a 50% chance that at least one other person will already be using a urinal as well, which urinal generally gets the least amount of use? My goal is to always use the urinal that has the least amount of use, mostly for OCD-type reasons. [more inside]
