health risk?

Urine doesn't pose a health risk - it's sterile (unless the person has a urinary tract infection) so it's safe to drink. Have to watch the sodium intake, though.

It certainly won't cause any damage to the intellect of those dumb enough to fall for the "OK it smells like piss, but it's apple juice really" line.

"it's sterile (unless the person has a urinary tract infection)" So it dose pose a health risk then...

"It certainly won't cause any damage to the intellect of those dumb enough to fall for the "OK it smells like piss, but it's apple juice really" line." And that is why this, and all other ppractical jokes work. It is praying on peoples good nature and trust of others.

gutter press

Well, the main subjects of thesmokinggun's story certainly appear to be self-incriminating fools, however the story is colored by somewhat unnecessary interjections and conjecture.

It's a shame because IMO had TSG stuck to the facts at hand, their exposé would likely have been shorter, easier to read, and more authoritative.

When three meet to plot revolution, two are fools and the third is a police spy.

Agree with AC

"It's a shame because IMO had TSG stuck to the facts at hand, their exposé would likely have been shorter, easier to read, and more authoritative."

Very true, that could have been a very interesting piece of investigative journalism but it looks like they tried to jazz it up with the hyperbole and opinion.

Still, well played to TSG for finding this tit.

Sasha Baron Cohen?

Yup, sounds like a pretty good comparison. Never have been able to see much "humor" in SBC's stuff, but I would love to know how he gets away with the stuff he pulls without getting the kicking he so richly deserves.

If there is an explanation, it /must/ be extra-terrestrial!

@Health risk

No, it's not sterile. It has a very low count of coliform bacteria. It also contains quite a lot of garbage. You know, like, stuff the body does not want inside it longer that absolutely necessary, so drinking it is not a splendid idea. Not as harmful as, say, strychnine, but not totally safe either.

I'm surprised

...that he hasn't already been arrested, and if not facing criminal charges in a U.S. court, at least facing them in a Canadian one.

Copy cats.

Valve have had snipers throwing jars of Australian piss at each other since the sniper/ spy update.
