    Default Red Eyes!

    Ever wondered why your eyes go red in the local swimmers?

    Apparently, it's because the chlorine is mixed with urine and sweat.
    They also say that the stronger the smell of chlorine is, the more urine is in the water.

    Now you know why!

    This makes me not want to go to the swimming bath again.

    I wonder how many of you would admit to pissing in the pool?
    I did when I was younger, but not now.

    Can 2 days ago class as younger?

    There is an “urban legend” that some swimming pools have a dye in them that marks urine trails.

    A chemical could be manufactured that would react with urine and leave a coloured trail. Unfortunately, it would be difficult to prevent it from reacting to other organic substances present in pool water.

    A few pools capitalized on this urban legend by creating professional pool signs that warned that the pool was indeed being monitored with such a chemical.


    Even the professionals do it, sometimes to put of other competitors.

    And............

    If you think that is bad, I have a friend who was in the British Merchant Navy, who told me that a lot of foreign (he never admitted to it himself) sailors would pee in foodstuffs that was going to export, like sugar, flour etc.
