Boxer Drinks Own Urine: As revealed by the HBO documentary series 24/7, Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez ends every workout session by making his own energy drink. "That's where a lot of proteins and vitamins are," said Marquez, whose sponsors include Tecate. "Why not drink them again instead of wasting them?" Before you try this yourself to pee all you can pee, experts say it doesn't help.

Saw UFC commentator Joe Rogan do this on a YouTube video he posted.

It's all bullshit and has no medical benefit whatsoever. Honestly, I'm fairly hardy, watch the goriest Japanese movies out there etc... Have seen all sorts of horrors over the years. Saw 2 Girls 1 Cup etc... You name it.

But watching Rogan drink his own piss nearly made me hurl.

Works great on a jellyfish sting I hear. Definitely does not taste like chicken, also from what I hear. I don't know about drinking it but there was the gal in Vegas who would.....

Never mind.

Forget profanity, can we outlaw pee drinking FPPs please?

But it cures athletes foot, right?

'But it cures athletes foot, right?'

Although it apparently has no effect on jock itch.

Oh dude, that's just wrong.... Someone pass me the brain bleach to get rid of that image please!

I hear urine makes for a good brain bleach too.

Yes, but the tradeoff is a slight case of halitosos.

IS it necessary to drink my own urine, No but its sterile and I like the taste.

Seems that it really doesn't cure athlete's foot either, but it does save the rainforest.

Sorry Madonna.

All right, you're in the boxing ring. Its pretty close so far. Suddenly, your opponent and you are in a clinch and the ref is trying to pull you apart. Just before he separates you, your opponent says in your ear "I drink my own urine" and breathes hard on your face. While you're freaking out over inhaling pee-breath, he nails you with a devastating upper cut and you're down for the count.

It doesn't work? Au contraire!

Sounds like this guy took 100 too many shots to the head.

A former Prime Minister of India, Morarji Desai, was a firm believer in Urine Therapy. It is under the heading "Retirement and Death" in his Wikipedia biography. President Jimmy Carter came under some fire because of this for meeting with him. By coincidence, I just came back from dropping off a sample for my upcoming physical. Too bad I have nothing left over at the moment.
