    Dancing Chocobo If you're at the movie theater and have to pee do you run to do it or hold it in?

    Miss the movie, or possibly pee your pants?

    Make your choice.

    Yes this is a real poll. It's serious business.

    I always hold it. Or rather, I always used to hold it. Whilst watching The Martian recently I was dying for the loo and had to go right at the point where Matt Damon was messaging his crew. I have no idea what they said to each other

    My bladder looks like it's going to be the first thing to go in my old age.

    If I have to go really, really bad I'll just go to the bathroom. I rarely have this problem though. If anything it's the number two that gets me going. Missed the ending to Moses because of that. Not sure if that's really a bad thing or not.

    I always hold it in unless I'm literally going to burst any second. Fortunately, I always aim to go to the bathroom before I watch a movie, so that's only happened to me a few times, and only for long films where I'm drinking lots of fluids (popcorn is like, so good, but so dry).

    Do they not have giant cups of soda in Dutch Theatres, or is that just an American thing?

    As for me, I hold it, if I can. I only remember running out once or twice.

    This has happened many times and only one movie I walked out to pee but that's because it was pretty bad. The rest of the time I hold it in because if I miss any second of the film I will die obviously.

    It depends on the movie. If it is something I can't look away... I'll go in a cup before I leave it. However if I could care less about the movie. I'm going to walk out to pea my brains out in the bathroom.

    I've never had to go to the toilet at the cinema before. Go before the damn thing starts!

    Though this does remind me of a time when I was at a classical music concert with a mate and had made the mistake of meeting in the pub beforehand for a few. I needed to go before we headed off to the venue but we were running late, so I just decided I'd have to deal with it. We were about half way through what happened to be an infamously long Mahler symphony and I reached the point where I would normally run to the toilet. Unfortunately, this isn't a movie theater and you can't just get up to go and take a leak until there is an interval (which had either already passed or didn't exist for this performance). I just had to sit there and bite the bullet, for about an hour and a quarter.

    It was up there with telling my parents I was an EoFFer as the most uncomfortable 75 minutes of my life. I must have contorted my body into a dozen different positions. By the end I was closing my eyes and managing my breathing because I felt that if I breathed too hard I would break the seal. When it finally finished, I didn't stay for the encore and had to awkwardly shuffle (running was a negative at this point as it would widen my legs to too large an angle) to the bathrooms. The worst part was that when I finally got into the cubicle to experience that sweet, sweet relief, nothing was happening. It was coming out in a trickle. I figured the pressure must have been too high or something. Eventually it started flowing and I timed it. I peed for one minute and fifty-five seconds straight. That is my story.
