We’ve all been out with friends having a couple of drinks when the urge to pee hits. As you get up to go to the bathroom, one of your friends warns you that going will “break the seal.”
What they’re referring to is the belief that by going to the bathroom for the first time you’ll break some sort of seal in your body, and you’ll have to get up every five minutes to go to the bathroom.
Is this real or urban legend?
