Portable peeing for the PC-bound

You're in the middle of a frenzied fragfest when it hits: You gotta pee--bad. Whatcha gonna do? Getting up from your computer clearly isn't an option--any 733t d00d knows the deathmatch owns the bladder. [Missing Links]

You're in the middle of a frenzied fragfest when it hits: You gotta pee--bad. Whatcha gonna do? Getting up from your computer clearly isn't an option--any 733t d00d knows the deathmatch owns the bladder.

Enter the Internet urinal, a handy-dandy portable pee device marketed specially for the PC-bound. Each contraption is made of hard plastic, comes with a "female adapter" and holds 32 ounces--a whole lotta recycled Red Bull.

"With the Internet Urinal, you'll never have to leave your computer again," touts a promo on ThinkGeek. "Imagine the freedom--destroy your opponents in that all-important 'Quake 3' clan match without taking a break; drink as many cans of BAWLS as you want and still be able to make that last important trade before the market closes."

The device, of course, isn't exclusive to the Internet crowd. When the ThinkGeek link made its rounds at CNET News.com's newsroom, members of the editorial team were quick to note that like devices are commonly used by campers, hunters and boaters.

And not, they insist, by reporters on a tight deadline.
