welcome to 8th grade chemistry, dumbmitter

Don't listen to him smartmitter, I enjoyed that article. Especially the last paragraph.

That was good science. Dug it.

Author did use the word "pee" a few times too many. "Tinkle" is a funnier word, one that deserves to be used more.

Just say it out loud a few times. "Tinkle tinkle tinkle". See? It makes you smile.

so is it similar to the ammonia and chlorine mixture?

That means if each person is peeing 0.8L of the highly concentrated urine, their entire day's yield, into this pool, you'd need about three million people peeing in that pool.

Well, I'm safe. I'm just one guy and I stay hydrated. Meanwhile, it's almost as if the author reads XKCD, and was bummed his question wasn't answered, so he went and did it himself.

I prefer 'wee wee', because it is a noun that can stand for both the product and the manufacturer.

Does this mean we get to arrest children as enemies of the state?

Cyanogen chloride is a blood agent, not a nerve agent.

Never embellish subby!

But what if the pool was full of fin whales?

The place would be full of Japanese and their harpoons.

It's not the toxin, it's the amount of it, you idiot.

Just wondering, but is there a reason we don't use bromine in pools? We use it in our spa instead of chlorine. Is bromine not up to dealing with the turds in public pools? Cost?

Doesn't ammonia work better with bleach?

Basically this.  The other one sounded like Potato Chemistry.

I accidentally mixed ammonia and bleach when I was a kid.  Rapid learning experience.

Ammonia + Chlorine = Chlorine Gas / Fun for the Whole Family!

Or in other news, don't accidentally drop a bottle of Windex into the toilet after you've put toilet bowl cleaner or you might have some breathing issues.

/also, never use bleach to clean up cat pee
 
2014-03-31 08:00:30 PM
I'd be more alarmed over a diaper bomb at the pool.
 
2014-03-31 08:28:20 PM
I think I learned about a micturation gas bomb from either a GI Joe Special Missions comic or a badly formatted ASCII except from the Anarchist's cookbook on a BBS. Too much leet speak laughter to consider it anything but a way to autoDarwin myself.

Just watched Porky's last night.
So I am getting a kick out of that.

Ah, no wonder I pass out when I pee into a toilet soaking with Clorox.
