Have we all been drinking dinosaur urine ?

Almost all the water on the planet was, at one point, consumed and then peed out by a dinosaur.
It's an idea that seems too ridiculous to be true, but when you think about it the water we drink is the same water that has been around since the Earth's earliest days.

Every creature on the planet throughout history has consumed and then urinated that same water which has been recycled over and over for countless eons.
The fact that the dinosaurs walked the Earth for over 186 million years would have given them plenty of time to have collectively sampled the vast majority of the water on the planet.

While this doesn't mean that what you drink is literally dinosaur urine, it does suggest that at least some of the molecules in your glass may have once been peed out by a prehistoric reptile.

A 'Curious Minds' video exploring this concept in more depth can be viewed below.

So, now Charlie Sheen can not only boast he has Adonis DNA and Tiger blood, but also that he drinks T. rex pee!

I heard T. Rex pee keeps the little ones away.

Molecules, like life, die and recycle themselves. The same atoms don't stay around forever. They are created and destroyed then remade

Since both our wells (we have 2 on our property) are below former coal beds I'm getting the fresh stuff and since they started fracking on our hill at my father-in-laws we get dinosaur farts out of the faucet there too.

The adult human body is, on average, 65% recycled dinosaur urine.
