Urine has its uses; Mexican leather goods used to be called “piss cured leather” and probably still is. Anyone who has smelled Mexican cowboy boots understands why.Gyro28866;n1134387 said:I am liking the way you think.
Napoleon used urine from the soldiers and animals and used it as a source of nitrate. The urine was collected, converted from calcium nitrate to potassium nitrate (saltpeter), and combined with charcoal and sulfur to field armies.
Yes, All In is right, it's me getting high again. I do ice climbing up frozen waterfalls in the winter and mountaineering in the summers, and I've been up big mountains in Ecuador, Argentina, Tanzania, Italy, France, Switzerland, and all over the U.S. I had big plans to go to Nepal and summit Ama Dablam in the Everest region this fall (picture attached). The plans were made long ago when I was fully healthy, before I got flattened by a drunk driver while on my bicycle a couple months ago, so now I'm working really hard on physical therapy in the hope of getting somewhere near good enough condition again in time to complete the trip. This recovery business seems every bit as hard as the toughest climbs I've done.FRANK'S;n1134404 said:Is that really you WaspAir?
