Split, Pee

If you've ever been sitting in the middle of a long movie, wondering when you could afford to make a pit stop without missing anything good ... well, urine luck. ---

RunPee.com is a new service dedicated to "helping your bladder enjoy going to the movies as much as you do." The site lists current theatrical releases, noting specific points that might be best to cut out. Let's say, for example, you're out enjoying the 153-minute-long Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. RunPee recommends five potential points of relief, including the moment when you should leave, how long you have before the next important action begins and -- should you so desire -- a summary of exactly what takes place during that span. You can return a few ounces lighter, refreshed, and you won't have to annoy the rest of the people around you by asking your companion what happened. You can get it as an iPhone app, too.

And just for a laugh, check out the "Classic Movies" area, to find out when it would be recommended that you cut out of Star Wars or Titanic for a bladder emergency.
