For a while I've been telling to friends of this product that I would love for it to exist. The idea is a flavor pouch or a flavored water beverage or juice or any beverage for that matter that you can digest without any health hazards and when you fee like you have to drain it you actually urinate the digested chemiluminescence color of your choice depending the beverage color you chose. Imagine that, chemiluminescence glow in the dark URINE! I swear this would make urinating on walls a lot more fun, even urinating will be more fun. Just go around marking your territory or turn off the lights and p**s away in the toilet seat, without the intention of making a mess of course. I would in fact be tempted to not flush until the glow is dim. :P

So yeah, It's almost 2 AM and I felt like sharing that with you.

Tell me what you think, and if it did exist without giving you any health issues will you drink it? Just for the fun of it?

The neon you're talking about is a gas and requires current for particles to get excited and light up. If you mean a chemical reaction, I'd suggest "chemiluminescence". Components required: hydrogen peroxide solution (as an "activator") and a solution of phenyl oxalate ester and a fluorescent dye (which makes the colour). I can hardly imagine that the elements above can in any way be safe to digest. :/

Well, as a beta test, I just drank a half-gallon of glow-in-the-dark green paint. We'll see what happens.

And here I thought all those green spots were the result of radioactive cats and dogs marking their territory...MkFlyyyyy!!!!

Jeez, from the title, I thought you were talking about a computer software. LOL ;) Listen, DON'T drink anything funny just for the heck of having your urine glow in the dark! It may be hazardous to your health, seriously!

Now, here's a true phenomenon. I used to live in a place where toilets are flushed with sea water. Sea water = high NaCl content, and have fair electrical conductivity. Believe it or not, in the dark, when urine is hitting the sea water in the toilet, blue sparks of static electricity discharges are visble! "Electrical urine" ;) is a magnificent phenomenon, which only can be observed with the combination of high body static electricity accumulation, salt water toilet and total darkness.

You can experiement by one, salinate your toilet water (if not sea water already). Two, try to increase body static electricity, friction from a sweater can help, but remember you need not just superficial static on your skin, but require core body electrical energization. ;) So you need also a dry winter weather. And you need complete darkness to see the blue sparks, which are brief, but nonetheless are stunning glows! What you are observing is electrons leaping through air exchanging between your urine stream and the surface of the salt water, right before (fraction of a second) they collided inelastically.

I think we should start a company that specializes in making non food items that are engineered to taste exactly like other non food items. Just think we could have concrete mix flavored screwdrivers or a steering wheel that tastes like moose feces or nuclear waste flavored shoe laces the possibilites are endless!

well they weren't before we started drinking paint to change the color of our urine but now that we've gone that far i guess moose feces is fair game.

Ah yeah MD thanks for that tip, my chemistry is worse than an 8 year old, never paid much attention in that class. :D

Hah! just being creative here. I would wish it wasn't hazardous in any way to the human digestive system. But imagine if it weren't. If there is such a product in existence I wouldn't doubt it exists in Japan, I've seen the craziest candy and beverages over there.

Well the question still stands, will you drink it if it wasn't hazardous? And what would you do while urinating? ;)

I once ate about 15 flintstone vitamins and it really changes the color of your pee! I was drunk... not sure why I did it. At the time I thought I was peeing neon green... didn't glow in the dark though.

I think I read somewhere about a group of bioengineers that crossed rabbit DNA with some other creature and the rabbit glowed in the dark.
Now if we can get those jokers to stop focusing on curing world hunger, AIDS, cancer, erections, etc., I pretty sure they could whip up a formula for a candy bar that makes your pee glow in the dark.....just think about the energy savings at a keg party!

why not try to make the people glow in the dark so they don't have to p**s all over everything to get adequate lighting?

Gerritt, it's mice, created first by Japanese scientists by splicing glowing jellyfish genes to mice embryos. Here's the article, http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/summary/277/5322/41c

It's for medical research, not for lighting purpose. LOL ;)

Jim, Dr. P.,
I know, I was trying to be just a bit tongue in cheek:~
BTW I think the same group did it with rabbits as well...

Imagine that, chemiluminescence glow in the dark URINE!

What I do know is that urine is sterile (unless there is an infection) because what appears in the urine was filtered out of the bloodstream via the kidneys. So, if the blood system does not absorb the chemical and the chemical is not removed from the urine by the kidneys in significant quantities, it will not effect the color of your urine. Of course, you can get red/black urine if you are passing kidney stones but that's something you do not want. As far as I know, it is impossible to make urine illuminate in the visual spectrum but...

There is a barium compound that is drank orally, absorbed into the blood stream through the walls of the stomach, and then filtered the moment it hits the kidneys. It doesn't make your urine visibly colorful but it does show up on x-ray images (crazy how efficient healthy kidneys are).

And of course, urine is visible via ultraviolet and infrared (if still warm from being in your body) sensitive cameras. As far as I know, those are the only means to change the "color" of urine but they aren't really changing the color at all. XD

That's not to say there isn't a freak medical condition out there that does but, rest assured, you (in your right mind) shouldn't want it just to have psychedelic urine for the few urinations before it gets old. Even if something were invented, it would probably have to be approved by the FDA before it can be marketed.


Not to give you ideas but fecal can be very colorful and at the same time, far less harmful...
