As for the urine, I always wondered if it was really true or not. Thanks for the info.

How did we go from jellyfish stings to bacteria? I thought we were talking about salt water problems not hygiene LOL what about the bacteria that is in your pee that they test for when you are sick? its still alive as they do cultures..
