``Well. . .

It`s very um.. Savage. Savage life.
If u were Dehydrated enough and also dumb
then u would do "Drinking the urine".
Why`d someone post something like this.
noone wants to Drink Urine.It`s disgusting.
No-one would want to, Except Apes,ect.ect...
So PLZ DO NOT DRINK YOUR PEE!``

Almost all water has urine in it anyway, so might as well.

here`s some info somewhat related to this that i read the other day. mathematically speaking, in every breath you take, approx. one atom of gas was previously breathed in by aristotle. mathematically speaking, of course.

and i`m with you, enohead. kanedashima, you need to calm yourself, buddy.

Then don`t post completely useless comments! :-D

Urine is sterile, and about 96% of it is water. When filtered, it wouldn`t be so bad.

KanedaShima, there isn`t anything precisely that I want you to know. It just struck me as funny that you made a statement about people who think they know everything, when every post of yours that I`ve seen has you spouting off useless opinions - disguised as information - in an attempt to make yourself look intelligent.
But, of course, the second you wrote "STFU", any semblance of intellegence you may have displayed went right down the ol` tube.
Have a lovely day.

MiligrmSmile is right. People don`t realize that about every drink of liquid they take is recycled from some liquid, pee or whatever either naturally or by a waterworks system, but it is or was a difficult feat for Nasa to do it at a much smaller scale to make it practical for space use.

Okay Eno what is it precisely that you would like me to know, besides that you don`t LIKE everyone, and your sense of taste isn`t all that refined, and that your life is so poor you`re forced to entertain yourself with irony? Tell me something new or STFU.

About ten years ago I read that drinking water in NY has passed through 9 kidneys (drank, expelled, treated, and put back in the drinking supply 9 times over.) So everyone acting all grossed out - you probably drank someone else`s pee at least once in your life, if not every single time you take a drink.

KanedaShima-
Do you find it ironic that you, of all people, used the phrase "...people who think they know everything"?
I sure do.

you can drink your urine about twice a week without becoming ill. (thank you, space camp).

but i`d rather trust the technology...

It`s recycled. You ARE just drinking water.
ALL liquids are water based, so if you remove everything but the water, you get water.
If you take the dirt out of mud, you get water.
The same logic applies here.

To answer the question, there have been piss-drinkers throughout history. One example involves the hallucinogenic and religious drug called fly agaric. The high of fly agaric is transmitted not only by the mushroom by that name but also through the urine of those who ingest the mushroom. (This is the red and white polka-dot mushroom often seen in drawings & paintings.) Before you make a rude post, please note that this used to be a religious rite among the highest classes in India, before India was ruined by people who think they know everything (but tell astronauts to go pee in their expensive pants because they don`t). India has a lot of piss-drinkers anyway for reasons also having to do with their non-Western medicine. Old Russia had a tradition of piss-drinking too. Not just idle piss-drinking but for specific purposes, chiefly health and (yes) sanitation. So smoke that for a while.

Holy moly donut shop! This experiment reminds me of that one long-ass movie, "Waterworld" where in the beginning, Mel pisses through a straw and at the end of his little device thingy, the piss turns clear. Ah, good stuff. Gooood stuff.

Pee is so useful... An old who lived nearby used to pee into a bottle and throw it at people. It wasn`t his fault though, he had a bad case od dimensia.

Waterworld was a huge flop. The producers should av` been sued for even making that. But yeah, if someone was dying of thirst in the middle of the desert, they would drink it without even caring about what it once was. No problem...

I learned about this on a class trip. It is very fascinating what they can do these days, and this is great for regions without safe drinking water along with astronauts, as the article said. Yay for science. :P

Although I am not used to the idea, I do know that pee is drinkable. In fact, it can save your life if you are stranded in the ocean.
If there is no water, recycled pee is a good idea. =)

For some reason, this doesn`t gross me out. I`ve run really disgusting pond water through my trusty filter on backpacking trips and had no problems so I don`t see why pee is that different.
