Urine Time

Tycho Brahe:
An important Danish astronomer of the 16th century. His ground breaking research allowed Sir Isaac Newton to come up with the theory of gravity.
How he died: Didn't get to the bathroom in time.
In the 16th century, it was considered an insult to leave a banquet table before the meal was over. Brahe, known to drink excessively, had a bladder condition-but failed to relieve himself before the banquet started. He made matters worse by drinking too much at dinner, and was too polite to ask to be excused. His bladder finally burst, killing him slowly and painfully over the next 11 days.

I just read the above on THIS website, and it made me want to pee. When I got there, the cleaning ladies had the bathroom blocked off! "That's cool", I thought, and proceeded to the other restroom. But relief was not to be found! It was blocked off too!

I'm gonna die of an exploded bladder!
