We had a plane leave Indiana & filed a flight plan for macinac Island but never arrived so our local Cival Air Patrol all fly up to help. The plane had gotten there, never landed or closed the flight plan. They tuurned around & headed home & ran out of fuel about 10 miles north of me south of Van Buren fair grounds. It's a very knarly swamp you can't walk thru but the pilot set up for a fiels just past the tangled swamp but the passenger grabbed the yoke & turned the plane 90 deg with the wins vertical & one wing hit & they ended up in the swamp. The ELT didn't go off which they didn't know, the pilot has broken leg(s) so the passenger said he'd go for help but died just on the other side of the plane & the pilot didn't know it. He spent 5 days chewing on his boot leather & recycling his urine before a plane spotted them. The resue party had to chainsaw their way in & as soon as someone youched the plane the ELT went off.

I've heard that the Romans brushed their teeth with it.

Serious. No joke.

Makes a good fertilizer too. I fertilize my neighbors grapefruit tree every day. No charge. See link below.

Good for writing in snow. Printing in snow is more difficult. Men only, sorry ladies.

It's got nitrogen.  Gunpowder needs nitrogen.

Here I am just loading up my Super Soaker for the weekly water fights. Also, cackling like a 12 year old because no one knows I'm not using water.

Trebor, I think there is some process in the Army's "Improvised Munitions Handbook" that uses urine to make something that goes bang.
