Should you build in such heat, you should document the results and share, because there's not many talking about it. Most mud research and literature comes from people working in the New Mexico highlands and Colorado--- quite different from the extreme heat of the Sonoran Desert, the city, and like environments.

This caused the "stream" to suddenly pull to one side. So if squatting to pee, suddenly it would go down my leg into my shoe! There is no way to change angle and make it work consistently - I've tried over and over and over. This autoimmune condition rare in young women, but affects a good proportion of women over 40, and can reshape (the term I prefer to "deform") the genitalia a bit. Causing odd effects like angled pee-streams. Later, I got sick in my adulthood, and for many years couldn't hold a crouch, but that's another issue, really.
