Where Are the X-Men?!

Once upon a time...Professor Xavier pooped here...

At one point in time, the first floor Sproul restroom, as disgusting as it is, was home to none other than the X-Men restroom. This picture shown above is that restroom, except there, of course, was an “X -” in front of the men…

It looked a lot like this picture I found on Google actually.

Where have the mutants gone? Were they shunned from the UCR campus as how they are shunned from society? I strongly believe UCR, being a university that prides itself on it’s acceptance of a wide range of ethnicities, should come to accept mutants as well. Its injustices like this that push Magneto to destroy the Golden Gate Bridge and stuff like in that second movie.

That is all.

"Wait! No! DON'T TAKE IT AWAY! My legs man. Bro..."


Restroom Review: Sproul 1102 UNISEXUAL!

These are the individual bathrooms at the entrance of the Sproul 1102 lecture hall. There are not many places on campus that you can truly be alone…Privacy: No other bathroom with offer you privacy like this one, which is great! I am tired of some creepy dude always looking over at my junk at the urinal! The privacy of this bathroom though, is its greatest downfall. You can be assured that almost every person passing through here has been dropping a load and did not want anyone to hear. I know for a fact that this is where my friend goes when he is feeling sick.

Now remember for a second that we are in a high hormone environment called college, sometimes we can’t wait to get home with that special someone. I know from personal experience, that it is possible to sneak 2 in for a little fun lock the door and get away with it, and I bet other have too. So keep that in mind when you sit down, might wanna take extra care if you don’t wanna catch some sexually transmitted disease.

5/5 for intimate privacy!

Cleanliness: It is not the cleanest thing in the world, this is how messy it was at 8am on a Monday. And the entire bathroom smelled a little funny, maybe dead bugs. If you wish to locate all the dead bugs, just look up to the light fixture that may fall on your head at any moment. Not super sexy…

3/5 for cleanliness

Conclusion: Despite this being on the dirtier side, and it is one of the  older bathrooms on campus, this is one of my favorites. I have privacy and many great memories in here. Sproul 1102, you have been there for me and others in a time of need.


4/5 Holy shits!

Restroom Review: Sproul Hall (First Floor Men’s)

Background Info:

To my knowledge, every campus in the UC system has something Sproul, whether it be a building or a street, in honor of the eleventh president of the University of California. At UC Riverside, we of course have Sproul Hall, home to the twisty staircase, random section of rocks, and discussion sections. Being a building built in the honor of the Sproul name, you would expect honorable things out of its restrooms. Did the Sproul Hall men’s restroom make like Mulan and bring honor to its family?

The Layout: Upon opening the door I was greeted with another door. Why in the world would they go out of their way to insert an extra barrier?

Proceed...if you dare!

Proceeding on because I dared, I entered the restroom, or should I say, GLORIFIED PORTA-POTTY. This restroom is tiny and cramped. For a restroom that is built to have at least 4-5 occupants, this is pretty terrible. Now I get it…that second door was supposed to discourage me from going any further! I’ll award a point for the warning. Score: 1/5

This...this is cozy...

Cleanliness: Because this restroom is so small and cramped, it is susceptible to stuffiness – a deadly thing when it comes to restrooms. The air is so dense there’s probably thick microbial pieces of poop flying around in the air (I’m not a science major so don’t hold me to this statement). I felt like breathing in here would cause a poop build-up in my lungs (again, I’m not a science major).

Heading into the stall to inspect the toilet, I witnessed the nastiest yellow stain, like so nasty my pee would be too clean to make contact with it. See for yourself in the picture below. I’d also like to make a point that these images were taken at around 8:00 AM, so this is what the toilet starts out as in the BEGINNING of the day!

Hahaha...oh wait that's real? ...ugh.

The stalls in this restroom always have great graffiti on the walls. Though its not clean to the walls, it sure is entertaining sometimes, so I count it as a positive! This graffiti pictured was pretty up-beat, but it didn’t do enough to brighten my experience in this restroom. Score: 1/5

Better than a poop on my step I guess

Amenities: Well after witnessing the pee coated toilet seat with stuff floating in the water, I didn’t want to inspect the amenities in the stall any further. But let’s just ASSUME its the standard 1-ply toilet paper rolls that require at least 50 sheets to be able to withstand a single wipe, and lets HOPE that it is refilled along with the toilet seat covers (but a whole new toilet seat would be better). Score: 1/5

Privacy: Let me take this time to discuss one of my biggest pet peeves – URINALS WITH NO SIDE WALLS. I am one of those people who have trouble turning on the hose when at the urinal because I’m self conscious just if there is a guy staring at me from behind. Having no privacy from the sides makes this even worse! I don’t want some creeper angling his eyes to the side and seeing my stuff! I’m pretty sure 9 out of 10 guys will see someone using one of these urinals, and opt to use the stall instead of use the urinal next to them, awkward penguin style. The urinals are literally like 4 inches apart; what were they trying to promote here, peeing competitions?! You might as well combine the two urinals to make one gigantic urinal tub if you are going to put them that close, perhaps that way you can squeeze in a third guy. Speaking of the urinals, also note that in the picture one of the urinals still has pee in it. Yikes… Score: BIG FAT 0/5


Closing Statements: To the honorable Mr. Sproul, I’m sorry but this restroom has brought dishonor to your family, and probably lung problems too. You truly deserved better, and I hope one day you get that restroom you deserve, one with a practical urinal setup, and at least a canister of Fabreeze.
