We’ve all felt that urge – whether it’s after pulling on a wetsuit and getting into a cold sea, lowering yourself into your local swimming pool or just sinking into your …

  1. Does ADH suppression
    act that fast?
    It doesn't,
    I found out at last.
    So? It can be logically concluded that
    such attempts at
    cheap popularity,
    can lead not only to embarrassment but also hilarity.
    Now in everybody's interest,
    It is advisable doc,
    That you take some rest!

  2. Sleeping people can be made to pee by dipping their hand in tepid water. Obviously no pressure there. I get the urge to pee when turning on a tap even without wetting my hands. Quite clearly we are dealing with quantum non-locality, there being a single unique H2O atom in the universe revealed in multiple instances. Just a thought.

  3. That’s all well and good, but what happens when you get out of the water again, say, an hour later? I once fainted after taking a long bath, and the doctor said people often faint immediately after getting out of the bath. I’m guessing that the body compensated for the water pressure by producing urine to reduce blood volume, and when I got out of the bath there just wasn’t enough blood to go round any more. Is it true that people often faint when leaving a bath?

  4. These get increasingly confusing, as the good doc mixes humor, total BS with life-and-death issues over a very uneven interval => One can't always be sure what's correct. Personally, I've never wanted to pee when getting into water – and I swim a lot – so there is no "why" for something that's simply not true. Assume there was even a little truth to the statement, I should have felt it, and heard from, of at least 1 person it applies for, but no, never. There's talk in the media of 'people' peeing in pools where they and others swim, and that would be disgusting. Hard to catch possible offenders in the act, though, but they should all be sent to re-education camps.

  5. First of all thanks for the vid, it amazes me how you manage to squeeze in those with the night shifts. Secondly, a question – usually large bodies of water are colder than the body core's temperature. Peeing would cause the body to lose heat. Why does it make sense ? Is it somehow related to the Las Vagus ?

  6. I got a referral to a guy called Chubbyemu from this video. Should I trust him? I just ate 43 laxative cookies after my main meal of two tide pods with a side dish of soy sauce (1 pint only, for diet reasons). Can he fix me on my current insurance plan?

  7. i live in brasil, that is quite hot, but have developed a passion about cold weather.

    i wonder sometimes if the reflex to pee in the cold weather could bring some better chance of surviving, like building a hotter environment when hunching in the snow.
    sounds quite 'dumb' for the body to throw some nice warm water that could act as heat reservoir when most needed.

  8. I have a question for you that has me concerned. Isn't it dangerous to let doctors work so long shifts that they get tired?
    I mean, I would not go into a bus where the driver is exhausted let alone let a surgeon operate on me after a 2 x 12 hour shift with maybe 3 hours of sleep.
