Forget the Camelbak

Now here's a sick one for ya's.

Forget your Camelbak, water bottle or whatever. Think of the weight savings! Just drink a lot before you leave, and recycle!

Over Three Million Chinese Drink Their Own Urine


Updated: Fri, Jun 01 8:53 AM EDT

BEIJING (Reuters) - More than three million Chinese drink their own urine in the belief it is good for their health, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Friday.

Participants at a recent seminar on the practice in the northeastern city of Shenyang were told that urine contains many active ingredients which strengthen the immune system, Xinhua said.

"Urine contains no bacterium and is more sanitary than blood," Yang Liansheng, a professor from the Liaoning Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, was quoted as saying.

Engineer Zhu Jinfu told the seminar he had been drinking his own urine since he was 13 and had lived a healthy life for the last 58 years, Xinhua said.

Many of his forefathers had also lived to a ripe old age thanks to urine therapy, he said.

Reminds me of that movie about medical students where the jerk instructor claimed he could diagnose by tasting the patient's urine. He dipped a finger in, then stuck it in his mouth. Of course, he switched fingers, but got the expected reaction from the students. Later, one of the students, I think it was Judge Reinhold, turned the tables somehow and actually got the instructor to taste the urine.

I know what you mean. Even the words "golden showers" is too much information.
