Lots of gross stuff in the news lately:

Swimming pool red-eye isn’t from chlorine (It’s from urine)

Technically Incorrect: The US Healthy Swimming Program says that when your eyes go red and stingy in the pool it’s caused by a chemical reaction between chlorine and urine.

It’s the Chloramines, I think. That’s the chemical reaction between chlorine and all the organic matter in your pool — dead critters, leaves, dust, pollen, nitrogen-super-charged rain water, etc. — not just urine.

Actually urine is kinda clean — at least that’s what my baby doc told me.

Both Gandhi and Bear Grylls have drunk their urine.

If it was the midi-chlorians, we could all be Jedi.

RG, that was not Gandhi. That was a goofball Indian politician named Morarji Desai.

Tushar, really? Gosh I apologize I always thought it was the Big G.

All those urine drinkers kind of stream together in my mind.
