    I hope I didn't offend you, the other picture was cuter than Bear Grylls though. Just poking a little fun at you, I don't mean anything by it.

    I like escalators, because an escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. You would never see an "escalator temporarily out of order" sign, just "Escalator temporarily stairs... sorry for the convenience. We apologize for the fact that you can still get up there."

    I'm sure you find nothing but 3rd world country's that bath in waste everyday.NOT drinking urine to survive on.
    As i can tell already by your response you don't know the first thing about survival!
    Sounds to me that all you ever did was read the military manuals,never had to put them to use and now say you know whats best......there are many like you.....you sir have never been in a real life survival situation or you would know better then to have comments like that.Your a hunter at best!
    Survival is thirst,hunger,despair...I'm am very sure you have never starved before.....trust me you would eat just about anything.I'm sure the military fed you fine!Military manuals are just "General rules" not the bible!
    The military did not go out and seek the advice from NASA phd's or MIT or Berkly U.....Hence they take the cheapest advice and contracts.I was not asking for someone to change my mind,just your thoughts.

    My Google works as good as your Google!

    Edit:Guess you never heard of Scott O' Grady?
    Guess you never read the same survival manual he did?
    He ate ants to survive for nourishment and entertainment!
    Yea your a survivalist! LMAO!
    Sorry hun,but dead people tell no tales,if they drank their pee,and died from it,chances are VERY good that we would never know,because they ain't talkin'!

    Okay...in her defense...it's not always going to KILL you. There are generations of people who regularly drink their own urine and India even has a NAME for it. Ick...guess it's one of those "natural healing methods". It's well documented that people CHOOSE to drink their urine every day as a form of healing. I don't get it...nore would I DO it...but there are plenty of people, alive and well, who drink pee.

    That being said, there is a distinct difference between drinking your healthy, hydrated urine, and drinking borderline dehydrated urine. I think those differences have been laid out quite well by other members.

    I think if you WANT to try and drink your urine in a survival situation you need to be smart about it. Clearly you should NEVER drink your urine if it's a dark color or have a weak stomach like me.

    Sooo. If you died drunk in the desert would they have to pump your stomach to do a urinalysis? This is getting waaaay too complicated.

    Of course, the other thing you can do is squeeze water out of elephant poop. That would eliminate the need to worry about urine. Of course you have to go to Africa or India to find an elephant and, personally, I'd stop some place along the way and get a drink. But that's just me.

    Cool Hmmmm...well now...

    The original title to this is "will drinking urine save your life?' My answer is "maybe, but you're reputation will be in the toilet once it gets out." And why is BG talked about so much on here? Because he & Mykel Hawke are the only 2 people that have gone public advocating that it's okay to drink untreated urine. While there may be documented cases where somebody's life was saved doing this, how do we know what consequences they might have suffered later as a result?

    Concerning the articles about people drinking urine in survival situations, perhaps it should not read that they survived because they drank urine, but rather that they survived despite drinking urine. Just say no to the wizz!

    Urine is a valuable survival resource, but not for drinking straight. One can extract the water from urine using a simple distilation process (perhaps using a simple solar still,) collecting and drinking the distillate, while the cocentrated remains can be used for the production of explosives if enough is collected over time. I'm sure there are many places you can go online to find exact instructions for both processes, so I will not go into either. Suffice it to say that one should not drink raw urine, just like one should not drink sea water without distilling it first. No, you can't reclaim enough moisture from your own urine to keep you alive for very long by itself, however it could extend your other water resources by perhaps 10-15% which could make all the difference in a desperate situation.

    FUN WITH PEE http://www.urinecolors.com/fun_with_pee.php

    Can you drink urine?

    While many people have claimed some beers tastes like pee, urine is actually supposed to taste salty (due to the trace amounts of chemicals)… we’ll just take someone else’s word for it about the taste of pee. As far as pee being safe to drink… urine is indeed sterile. Your urine is also mostly water. So, that means it’s safe to drink pee? It probably won’t hurt you if you your body is strong and you are healthy. Urine does, however, contain tiny amounts of different chemicals, which can harm a less healthy person. It’s not recommended to drink pee unless it’s a matter of survival. Plus, ewww!
