Pee AND Pool = 1

Since a couple of channels on the cable have started having MASH – the TV program, not the movie or even the actual book – marathons, the subjects of cockroach pornography (sports type) and micturation have been more frequently considered.

Hence, when I ran across an article [Link] entitled “Here’s How Much Pee There Is in a Swimming Pool” I moved into the micturation channel. This is one of those typically (predominantly? ENTIRELY!) Millenial articles that falls somewhere on the spectrum between “Gross” and “EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!” And the MASH bit gave me the insight necessary to cement the bottom line.

An old summer camp (showing my youth from the ’50’s) trick was to take someone’s arm – while they were asleep – and immerse it in a basin of warm water (liquid dihydrogen oxide.) After a few moments that someone would void their bladder, mush to their embarrassment and the glee of their evil EXTRO camp mates.

Note this is a natural physiological reaction. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be used as a prank.

But what gets missed by all the BOG EXTROs is that it doesn’t just work with an arm; it works with any other part of the body. (Almost.)

So when you take someone and put them in a swimming pool on a day when the water is warm, guess what you get?

Voided Bladders.

Get the idea? Urine in swiming pools is a NATURAL occurrence. The only way to avoid it is to catheterize everyone before they go in the pool.

Shhh. Don’t spread that around. There may be politicians listening.
