A forehead support apparatus for resting a standing users forehead against a wall above a bathroom commode or urinal or beneath a showerhead. The apparatus includes a mounting member adapted for attachment to an upright bathroom wall either above the commode or urinal or below the showerhead. A compressible head support member is attached to and extends from the wall and said mounting member. The head support defines an elastically deformable or resilient forehead support surface which is spaced above the floor and from the wall a distance sufficient for the user to lean his forehead thereagainst and be supported while using the commode or urinal.Source)

This blog is primarily devoted to library matters, and days and even weeks go by without mention of urinals. Librarians are curious about many things, however, and I thought these two patents might be of interest here - at least to my male readers. They will know the feeling of thoughtful contentedness - or mindless joy, if one has imbibed - that descends upon the swaying urinator, staring happily down at the porcelain. Often the situation involves a feeling of intense goodwill toward mankind; these ingenious devices will encourage that feeling, and I salute their inventors.
