Interesting... of course any of these sorts of differences would 
limit the generalizability of such a study. Linguists and urologists 
tend to prefer sampling from the middle of the stream, since the 
beginnings and ends both tend to be weird. So long as we're 
discussing alternative methodologies, why not cover a couple more bases?
