The nozzle is large and complex, and is equipped with a dial which allows you to choose between a soft, soothing, gentle stream and a firm, vigorous jet.
But there are other settings to make it exhibit other forms of behaviour, including one which makes it squirt random jets of water at you from three separate directions. I'm not entirely clear if there's a pattern, but to date I've been unable to predict which direction will be next, or how long the current direction will last. I suppose it might have been designed to provide the necessary infrastructure for some bizarre shower-based competitive game for residents of hotels in northern Virginia, but I'm not privy to the rules.
Next time I'm in the shower with a local, I'll ask.
