That's how I survived Outback last time someone made me go there. Did the same thing at Red Lobster.

It's the drink your own piss diet. You wouldn't like it. Unless of course you're an alcoholic, and then it's just a matter of reliving the joy all over again.

Camping tip: If you filter it though a sock, if gets as close to fresh drinking water as you can get.
If you put the sock over your little man, it makes it easier for serving.

There are other ways people, other ways.

Just to save you having to do this:

"Ajackaroo is a young man (feminine equivalentjillaroo) working on a sheep of cattle station, to gain practical experience in the skills needed to become an owner, overseer, manager, etc. ..."

If it's good enough for Kara Crabb then it's good enough for me.

Oh yeah, that's mildly NSFW. You don't "see" anything naughty but there is much discussion and consumption of bodily fluids.

I had sake once, and that's the closest thing to drinking piss that I plan to try.

Les Stroud drank his own piss in one episode.

He did distill it with a solar still first though.

This story is full of BS.

You had bad sake.

I bet there's a pissed off drug dealer about those 15 kilos he lost..
 
2013-02-16 07:09:16 AM  
Seriously, three nights?

Ok, everything in Australia wants to kill you but still, three nights? and he lost 15kg? Did a Croc take his leg off or something?

Do an experiment. Don't eat anything or drink anything for three nights.

/protip: don't actually do this experiment, you might die

No crocs in Longreach, but there's some pretty terrifying sheep.

"Come to think of it, he started before the water ran out. Says he likes it."

Yeah, this kind of smells like a look-at-me-I'm-an-attention-whore stunt.

damn, I know service at that restaurant is notoriously slow but that is awful extreme, don't you think?

It's sterile and I like the taste.

Fosters is Australian for cat piss. No one here drinks it, and it's only really available in the tourist bars. It's not owned by Australians, it's not even made in Australia these days,

Just FYI.

I do that in the summer quite often, when the nights are short.

I make up for it each day, of course.

I imagine Victoria Bitter and Boag's Ale are considered only one step above those, but I enjoyed them when I was in VIC & TAS in 2001. Decent every-day brews, IMO.

Perhaps I mistyped. Don't swallow anything for 72 hours. See how you feel after that.

Not a huge fan of VB, but Boags is certainly a decent drop. We've got a lot more local craft brews these days for something special, of course, but the basics aren't too bad. We just don't drink fosters is the thing.

It's in print, therefore it must be true.

Drinking your piss is the stupidest survival tip in the world. Every bit as dumb and counterproductive as drinking seawater. Unless urine is really dilute -which means your hydrated already - It'll put you on dialysis for kidney failure. In related news: Bear Grylls is a total douche.

That's 50 pounds. It's unpossible.

Not eating for three days would be uncomfortable. Not drinking for three days might kill you, but probably not. I can't see how you could possibly lose 50 lbs.
