reminds me of a disturbing skit a friend and I wrote with the line:

"come here with mee-maw and I'll give you a quarter if you help me empty my special bag"

There's a disease called porphyria that makes your urine purple. It was/is quite common among all of the inbred royalty of Europe. King George III had it. Supposedly, this is how the color purple came to be associated with Jesus, as the purple pissing royal retards used the color of their piss to prove to the peasants that they descended from Jesus. Don't know how true that last part is, probably apocryphal.

The color purple became associated with Jesus right before his crucifixion. Even a heathen such as myself knows that...

LOL I noticed that after taking 5-HTP, a supplement related to tryptophan. I Googled it yet never found anything on it.

It just creates a slight bluish tint, making it slightly green. I said "slight" twice but any deviation, however subtle, from a normal yellow is something you notice. But don't take 5-HTP and it's back to yellow.

The association of turkey with tryptophan and the sleepiness after Thanksgiving dinner is bunk. Turkey does contain tryptophan but about the same as any other meat, and there's other foods like cheese, soybeans, and eggs which have far more. You feel sleepy after a big meal because you ate a lot.

According to the article, you need an infection and constipation to assist turning urine purple.

Also, unless I'm mistaken, Purple was associated with Royalty before then as well, since getting the pigment was fairly difficult and expensive to harvest.

By an odd coincidence, Purple Urine Bag Syndrome is also the name of my post-punk ukelele four piece garage band.

What a ridiculous article...there are so many if's attached ( including having a bladder infection ) that subby should be made to drink the purple urine to get his head straight before submitting such an article

Purple was the color of royalty before Jesus was born.

I turned my poop purple by consuming nothing but grape soda for several days. Does that count?

Seems like PUBS ought to be a good thing.

Closest I've ever come was eating a couple of bowls of any of those cereals with a certain food coloring, like Boo Berry, or Franken Berry. In those cases, it comes out between blue and green.

I still giggle like an idiot when I see that.

I wonder if they could extract the indigo and bilirubin dye from the urine and use it to dye cloth? Used to be really valuable stuff before the Germans invented mauve, the first artificial color.

The traditional way of fixing the indigo dye so that it wouldn't wash out of the cloth was to use the urine of a ten-year-old-boy. Just before puberty there was some sort of chemical in the boy's urine that would fix indigo.

Urine had many industrial uses. That's why the Emperor Vespasian taxed it. He invented the saying "The money doesn't smell." Peccunia non odoret. The French named their public urinals Vespasiens after him.

These are also things I did not wish to know.
