MIAMI

This is from Gene Singletary, native Miamian, caterer extraordinaire and longtime friend of this blog:

This is why I freaking love Miami. This morning I went to the Home Depot and there in the parking lot, doing business as if he were the CEO of Home Depot, was a  real live Cuban entrepreneur, making Guarapo, AKA Sugar Cane Juice.  

For $1.00 I got an ice cold drink of pure sugar , complete with a touch of Everglades top soil and swamp water.  Delicious!!

What a country !!!!

Gene

SCIENCE

The video points out that urine is almost entirely made of water, sodium and chloride, which are already found in large quantities in the ocean. Pee does contain a tiny bit of the waste product urea, but the amount is minuscule compared to the 350 quintillion litres of water in the Atlantic Ocean alone.
