Default How many glasses of water without excretion

Today NYC declared heat emergency for the first time.... It reached 105 F today.

Today I drank 18 glasses of water (usually I drink like 4 - yeah I know it's bad), but funny thing is I still haven't gone to the bathroom.

Where is all the water going?

Who broke or can break my record?

haha..maybe! I guess Yeahweh attacked NY after Gibson's bigotry of Jews.

Actually this is a legitimate concern. People die of extreme temperature. It is a crime now to have the AC on when there is no one in the room.

Recently Queens had a blackout for 2 weeks and it wasn't pretty. One of my friends at Keyspan was telling me that the power usage was so high that they actually shut off all the lights in their own building to conserve energy


p.s. 20 and counting.....

Very Fuuny post.
I drank (3) bottles of Poland Spring of 0.9fl oz water and a 20oz power drink and I didn't visit the batroom as frequently as I should have.
By the way if you are working outside on the sun all day make sure you watch out for the symtoms for heat illnesses. I will post some tips for you.

And your answer to your question is "SWEAT"...why would you need to go visit the bathoroom when you are taking it out already whatever you are putting in.

Good luck working outside on this hot weather.

GENERAL SAFETY TIPS

Drink plenty of water (one small cup every 15-20 minutes)
* Wear light, loose-fitting, breathable clothing.
* If working, take frequent short breaks in shaded areas.
* Avoid eating large meals before working in hot environments.
* Avoid alcohol and beverages with caffeine (they make the body lose water and increase the risk for heat illnesses).
* Certain medications such as cold and allergy medication also contribute to de-hydration and require extra hydrating. If you are taking medications check the prescription or check with your doctor.

There are some heat-related illnesses that you should be aware of:

Heat Rash:
Body heat is released through sweating. However, when it is humid, the skin remains moist and sweat ducts can become blocked, developing a rash. For first aid, the rash may disappear when you return to a cooler area. Washing the rash and allowing the skin to dry will help.

Fainting:
As blood circulates to the skin to aid in cooling, it can accumulate in the lower part of the body if you are standing still. If the brain doesn't get adequate blood supply, fainting can occur. For first aid, lay down in a cool area.

Heat Cramps: Muscles can develop painful cramps or spasms from salt imbalances in the body. For first aid, drink about 5 to 7 ounces of fluids every 15 to 20 minutes to replenish your body fluids. Don't wait until you feel thirsty. Heat cramps are often the first sign that your body is unable to cope with the temperature. While they are often overlooked or ignored they should be taken seriously.


Heat Exhaustion: Heat exhaustion may result when a large amount of body fluid has been lost through sweating. The victim can become extremely fatigued, weak, nauseous and can have a headache. In serious cases, the victim may vomit and lose consciousness. Treatment for heat exhaustion includes: resting in a cool place and drinking plenty of water. Severe cases may require care for several days.

Heat Stroke:
Symptoms can appear quickly. They include: very high temperature - 103 degrees or higher; hot, dry, red skin; no sweating; disorientation, hallucinations; rapid breathing and fast pulse, then slow breathing and weak pulse; convulsions; loss of consciousness. Heat stroke is a medical emergency and you should call 911 immediately.

I suspect there is something wrong in the pipeline; probably stones or a leakage; otherwise it’s safe to wait until the water bounce back from oesophagus.

I think tunnels are all pretty much same in measures.
The longer it gets, the thinner it becomes.

heh! gatekeeper I suppose you are majoring in finance...

Now member 'sorry' really scared me with his leakage and stones explanation. So I decided to weigh myself (I am thinking all those extra water and stones would bump my weight atleast 6 pounds higher) but surprisingly I actually lost 2 pounds.

Very Weird!

Not going to the bathroom does not mean you are not doing it !!
I guess you are wearing diaper !!

No man no diapers and it's not through IBS, otherwise I would be in the bathroom most of the time.

The only explanation I can come up with is my organs expand during heat. Oh man I am an evolutionary man i think......

Because Global Warming will soon kill most, i think I can save the future of humanity. Ladies be smart about your future.

It depends how big are those glasses?

My guess is most likely something like one of these shot glasses:

Nope. Finished school about 16 years ago with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Math. Then went to law school four years later.

man..i almost came close to a heat stroke early this year..
cudnt believe it could happen to me...

on 1st of January 2006, the temperature here in Sydney soar to a whopping 45 degree centigrade.. the highest in quite a few decades...(remember its our summer then)

i was walking from one shopping center to other, a distance of about 15 mins.. and boy that was a mistake... even though i finished almost 2 500ml bottles of water in that time, i experienced a spin out and almost felt like tumbling down.. lucky i didnt wanna stop and quickly walked into the shopping center. i felt if i had stopped i wudnt hv the energy to walk again..never felt that kinda heat in my life and had a big lesson...

the moment i walked into the cool weather of the shopping center, i was doing fine, took a bit rest and ...and well...carried on with my shopping..

may be the extreme heat, along with the dehydration resulted from the previous nights new year's celebratory drinks hv caused an almost heat attack for me.

orpheus...the answer is simple...you lost the water the only way you can in severe heat without taking a leak: you sweat it all out.

a man lost 26 lbs of water weight in one day...that was a guiness world record.
