Randomized confessions..

Would you eat food cooked in your own urine? Food scientists working for the US military have developed a dried food ration that troops can hydrate by adding the filthiest of muddy swamp water or even peeing on it.

The ration comes in a pouch containing a filter that removes 99.9 per cent of bacteria and most toxic chemicals from the water used to rehydrate it, according to the Combat Feeding Directorate, part of the US Army Soldier Systems Center in Natick, Massachusetts. This is the same organisation that created the "indestructible sandwich" that will stay fresh for three years (New Scientist print edition, 10 April 2002).

The aim is to reduce the amount of water soldiers need to carry. One day's food supply of three meals, weighs 3.5 kilograms but that can be reduced to about 0.4 kilograms with the dehydrated pouches, says spokeswoman Diane Wood.

The pouch - containing chicken and rice initially - relies on osmosis to filter the water or urine. When two solutions of different concentrations are separated by a semipermeable membrane, with gaps that allow only water molecules to pass through, the water is drawn to the more concentrated side.

The membranes are made of thin sheets of a cellulose-based plastic, with gaps between the fibres that are just 0.5 nanometres across, too small for bacteria to pass through.

A hungry soldier pours dirty water into one end of a foil sachet containing two inner pouches separated by the membrane. The water seeps through the membrane into the dehydrated food on the other side. As it dissolves large molecules in the food, it creates a very high concentration solution. The osmotic pressure created then draws more water through the membrane.

Hydration Technology of Albany, Oregon, which makes the membrane, says soldiers should only use urine in an absolute emergency because the membrane is too coarse to filter out urea.

The body will not find this toxic over the short term, says Ed Beaudry, an engineer with HTI, but rehydrating food this way in the long term would cause kidney damage.

  • where would a teenager get a vibrator or what else could they use without anyone finding out?

    i am like 17 and it was like last week when i was like hanging with the guys and this like really hot girl who was like 20 or something was like hey your cute and i was like what so she was like i think your hot and I was what what and she says she wants to talk in privat ..................

    Do you understand or be bothered to try and read this crap?

    Do you honestly think that any intelligent person capable of posting a sensible response to your posting will bother to try and read it?

    Think it through and learn a lesson.

  • I fucking hate everything and everyone sexual. I have gone into clubs and looked arounded at the girls and guys and see the sin flowing from every fucking pore of their body. All I can think of is to kill these fucking people. It seems that now adays every single fucking person is taught to cheat and lie and fuck anyone and everyone. Why the fuck do I feel this way at 18 years old. I should be having fun and doing what I hate but I can't. No girl can be trusted and no guy can be trusted. Read these fucking posts and one can see the fucking problem with our world. Does anyone else my age feel this way? I mean damn, what the fuck happened to morals and being faithful. Funny thing is that I do not know of ever being cheated on. so none of this is because I am angry at a girl, it is just the way I feel, the way I hate.

    I've been dating a girl, C, for 11 months now, and things have been great. She's 5'0, I'm 6'1, I guess you could say that it's cute. But progressively I've been talking with one of my best friends sister, S, who is absolutely the most beautiful girl I've ever seen. On top of that, she is a pleasure to talk to and hang out with. Recently when I went over to my best friends house to play some ice hockey, there were multiple instances while inside that I felt an urge to grab tight and kiss her.
    C and I are very steady, but maybe too steady? I almost feel like I need variety, and to top it off I'll be going to college next year, but I love C who will still be in highschool next year. Do I repress variety and stay with C in a long distance relationship? AHH

  • When I got together with my husband I wasn't sure how serious we were and had sex with his brother...in a car...his married brother.
    Feel SO guilty about it even though me and hubby were just started out.
    The brother is still hot for me and tries to feel me up when I see him. I can't tell him to fuck off in case he tells my hubby. As my husband doesn't know I fucked him before we got together. aaaaaaarg
