Piss thread.
 
2014-05-23 05:54:03 PM
Regardless, I stand by my statement that, volume for volume, I'd rather be peed on than spit on.

/Granted, spit is normally a much smaller volume than urine.
 
2014-05-23 05:58:54 PM
I have read that urine is sterile but I thought it was an urban legend, not something that had never been scientifically tested. Why has no biology student ever done the experiments, aren't they as curious as people who study mathematics or physic?
 
2014-05-23 05:59:25 PM
It comes out of my penis and who knows where that thing has been.

/Okay - just the basement.

Duh. Next up, water still wets us, fire still burns, and the Gods of the Marketplace still are full of shiat.

/wanna buy a toothbrush for a thousand dollars?
//whoa, don't get mad, how about a brownie for a penny?
///yes, it tastes like shiat because it is, in fact, shiat... now would you like to buy a toothbrush for a thousand dollars?

Because it's harder than it looks to test urine while it's still inside a living creature's bladder, and the "urine is sterile" believers are careful to specify that the pee only remains sterile until it leaves the bladder.

/and when it turns out it isn't sterile even in the bladder, the response is, "well, that's because whatever you used to look at it caused contamination."

Since this is a Faux News article, the real truth is your piss is not only sterile, but antiseptic.

No more watersports?

Always drink upstream from the herd.
 
2014-05-23 06:16:14 PM
I never believed piss was sterile.

But pissing in a reservoir does nothing, because 1) the water in there ain't sterilized yet and 2) the water in there, including a teenager's piss, will be sterilized before it comes from your tap.

What you have to worry about in reservoirs are poisons. Pesticides, weed-killers, chemicals from farm animal waste, etc.

But urine? Feh. Fish piss in that water.

Can we find out who was the father of Sweet Pea?

From Wikipedia: "Urine is sterile until it reaches the urethra, where epithelial cells lining the urethra are colonized by facultatively anaerobic Gram negative rods and cocci. Current research suggests urine is not even sterile in the bladder." That last sentence there was added on 5/18/14, with an interesting footnote.


JRoo: So...

No more watersports?


Not on open wounds or mucous membranes, which was always a sensible guideline.

My pee is full of Non Disclosure Agreements?

it helps get off the stuck-on dried bits of food on the pile of dishes in the sink, so it's clean enough for me.

Sounds like one can no longer swap piss with a friend to fool the LDS test.
 
2014-05-23 06:38:29 PM
It won't be long before they install DNA sequencers on a chip in the sewer systems to locate "persons of interest."

Probably already doing it.

/That's what I told my neighbor when he caught me pissin on his bushes at least.

One can no longer swap piss with a friend at work.

Actually my urine is sterile. It takes a crap-load of alcohol to make it so, and I'm persistent..

DNA tests are still prohibitively expensive for such uses. That's not to say they won't be at some point. We'll eventually go full on Gattaca.

Piss is supposed to be sterile, but I'm not gonna recommend you drink your own piss, Bear Grylls probably wouldn't either.

Hold tight, let me grab the vodka bottle from my trunk and I'll be right back;)

Isn't the urethra lined with mucous membrane? Same goes for the areas next to the opening of both the male and female genitals.

But yeah, open wounds... ick. This is concentrated waste that was filtered out of the blood. There's no need to put the stuff back in.
 
2014-05-23 08:27:41 PM
Duh...Dried urine would not smell as rank as it does if it truly was sterile coming out of your body

Its doable now for about $300, and requires batching (so more like 20 people for $6k). Were working on it, cost efficiency requires a targeted assay, this isn't a whole genome sequencing process, but selected bits like a forensic fingerprint. Identifying pee is not important enough to drive the technology, but other kinds of medical tests are going to be replaced with this sort of thing by 2016. And you'll notice the non sterility argument is based on bacterial presence in the urethra, no one is concerned with the human debris, it's quite dead and edible.

What's-a the problem? When-a you pee either in the toilet or in the shower it all goes to the sewer. The sewer all goes-a to the ocean, the ocean is the water we all drink, we are always drinking-a the pee!
