Return to Piss without farting, die without fucking (idea)

Joka pieremättä kusee, se naimatta kuolee.

-- [Finnish proverbs|Traditional Finnish proverb]

Unsurprisingly enough, this [proverb] is used nearly exclusively at [urinal|urinals] when the (male) speaker happens to let loose a particularly impressive [fart]. The meaning has become more [low-brow] lately, since the verb naida originally meant "to [marry]" but nowadays means merely "to have [sex]".

Still, the [physiological] underpinnings of the proverb are interesting. Perhaps being able to [fart in public] is indicative of a certain level of [self-confidence] needed to attract a [mate]. Another possibility is that it takes a degree of mastery over your body to be able to simultaneously [take a leak] and [expel gas] without accidentally [defecate|defecating] in your pants, the (admittedly somewhat [dubious]) implication being that you must have [know a woman|known a woman] in order to accomplish this.

Most [proverb|proverbs] have [parallel|parallels] in other languages, but this one is probably [unique] to [Finnish].
