Nature.com reports that Canadian miners have tapped into a pool of water so far beneath the surface of the Earth, and so old, and so isolated that is has never been touched by human urine.
This of course makes it prime drinking water as the only known source of water that has never been peed in by anything, even your expensive, bland, bottled water has traces of urine in them. However, before richest one percent of the world’s population can take a drink (which will most certainly grant them everlasting life or, perhaps, super powers), scientists want to test the water for microbial life which may or may not be expelling urine into it at a subatomic level.
These studies may help us determine if life could be supported in other, such hostile locations, as under the surface of Mars.
Some experts say that the underground water could be dangerous in it’s current state and that somebody should pee into it right away to avoid unforeseen consequences.
National Geographic has published a report detailing the magnitude of life that lives within the human belly button, describing the ecosystem within is as a “rain forest.”
The study involved 60 different belly buttons in which over two thousand species live, about fifteen hundred of them are new to science.
Studies are underway to observe the creatures who occupy the navel including the indigenous village dwelling tribes. The tiny villagers appear to be thousands of years behind modern technology but they seem to be approaching the discovery of fire.
It is theorized that in some rare cases, belly buttons are inhabited by slightly more advanced civilizations who, in fact, have already learned to start fires. It is further speculated that this might be the cause of spontaneous human combustion.
Researchers are working around the clock to establish contact with the microscopic people and we’ll be sure to report on anything they find out.
