Gee Whiz

Yep that's right, I'm not above blogging about urine. This little nugget of a children's book is full of fun, disgusting facts. Here are the highlights all about pee.

"India's former Prime Minister Morarji Desai lived to be nintey-nine years old. He said he owed his good health to drinking a pint of his own urine each day."

"In Singapore, not flushing public toilets is a crime. undercover agents lurk in restrooms to hand out fines."

"The U.S. Army gives them food dried food in a pouch. At mealtime, soldiers must put the moisture back in. First choice, water-clean or dirty-the pouch filters out the yucky stuff. But in a pinch, pee will do the job."

"A mellow yellow turns neon bright, however, if you take vitamin B."

"Some women in Ancient Rome drank turpentine (which can be poisonous!) because it made their urine smell like roses."

Learn all the facts today, and the Barrett Memorial Library.
