Will rip out your eyes and provide urine directly to your grey matter...

Uh... some joke about beer and pissing away your brain cells...

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Jument: Wait... if pee contains cells then those cells could be infected with a virus, right? Then why does everyone seem to say that urine is sterile?

People have been using shiat for brains for years.

Now a good use for urine.

No more pissing in the urinal. I'm keeping mine from now on.

How big a tank will I need?

While I applaud any life-saving research, I gotta ask...who comes up with this stuff? Honestly...this and poop transplants. Farking weirdos

Maybe the cells aren't from you, they're from whatever life forms you have acquired the powers of by eating their brains, so you don't have to worry about their species-specific viruses?

"Urine is sterile". Yes. But not sterilizing, itself. Basically, they come out clean, but don't stay that way.

In the meantime, subby is just pissed about this.

So has this been pee-er reviewed?

I don't normally do this, but this was my submission for this story:

Scientists create brain cells from human urine, completing the cycle of life for beer drinkers everywhere
