God damn. That had to be written by a scientist, because it's an unreadable mess. Anybody with a humanities degree could've whittled that stupid thing down to about four sentences and dramatically clarified it in the process:

Urea is in urine, but doctors administer it orally as part of routine medical tests. Why? The bacteria that causes stomach ulcers also metabolizes urea. So doctors can administer an oral dose or urea, and if the body metabolizes it fast enough, it shows the presence of the ulcer-causing bacteria.

My mommy told me to save all my wee just in case. They used to laugh at me in school for going in soda bottles and bringing it home.

Wow, that is some shockingly bad writing.

I would be shocked too if it wasn't a Gawker site.

Current Gawker sites frequently linked on Fark that one could safely avoid and miss nothing:

Gizmodo,  io9, Jezebel, Kotaku, Lifehacker, Jalopnik.... did I miss any?  I am ashamed that I even know all of those still, but mainly they stay in my brain as 'don't click' filters.

Of course mashable has made Gawker look like farking geniuses.

Unsure if Bear Grylls is inconsolable or wanted for questioning.
