You have been swimming in pee

It's no surprise that public swimming pools might have some pee in it. But the amount of it has always been difficult to measure, or estimate. But now Xing-Fang Li from the University of Alberta say that they have been able to roughly estimate the amount based on the measurement of the artificial sweeteners carried in most people's urine.

According to their calculations, a big 220,000-gallon commercial-size swimming pool contains around 20 gallons (75 litres) of pee.

"I think you can assume that if people are using your pool, they're peeing in it," -- Ernest Blatchley III, an environmental engineer at Purdue University.

So what can you do about it? Well, like they say, if you can't beat them, join them!

Or better yet, just don't swim in pools.

It's all about coffee and laptops and what you can do with them. Or more like what you do when you are doing it to them. Doing like using your laptop and drinking your coffee. When your laptop is on the table and coffee is sitting next to it, some people start to work, some people go to Facebook, some people pretend to work most of the time. I guess that's me.
