When it comes to gloves, do you prefer boxers or briefs?
(Or as my friend Lorli says, "Why not save money and just go commando?")
How many times would that teenager have to pee in a Portland reservoir to produce a [dangerous] urine concentration? About 3,333 times.
But of course urine is 95% water… That means he’d have to urinate 166,666 times ... to approach that of the EPA’s limit for nitrates in drinking water. Since most animals, including idiot teenaged show-offs, take about 21 seconds to urinate, that means he’d have to urinate constantly for 3,500,000 seconds, or about 40 days.
If you and three million other people could get at this pool and unload your pee into it before your bodies melted, before the crowd crushed you to death, and before you drowned from the massive tidal wave of pee... yes, you could feasibly die of cyanogen chloride poisoning originating from chlorinated water and pee.
