Urinals in amsterdam

Via reddit

In Amsterdam, the tile under Schipol’s urinals would pass inspection in an operating room. But nobody notices. What everybody does notice is that every urinal has a fly in it. Look harder, and the fly turns into the black outline of a fly, etched into the porcelain. It improves the aim. If a man sees a fly, he aims at it. Fly-in-urinal research found that etchings reduce spillage by 80%. It gives a guy something to think about. That’s the perfect example of process control.
