And Now for a Word from Our Sponsor

We’re watching one of these reality-TV shows with someone doing a survival stint in the Australian outback. Our hero was discussing the lack of water, and just before the commercial break announced, “I’m going to have to drink my own pee.”

The scene faded to black, and the first commercial came on. It was advertising for some brand of beer.

I think the beer brewer should get a refund from their agent.

    I have to wonder if drinking urine gives you much benefit as far as hydration goes survival-wise. The salts etc. were expelled from his body for a reason. Now distilling the urine first and then drinking the distillate, that I think can be somewhat effective.

    You mean you can watch commercials? I thought they were just there to warn you to change channels or hit the mute button. ;-)

    If you are planning ahead for a desert adventure, you might want one of these to go along.
