How much paint do you have to drink, to believe that drinking your own urine is a viable cure for Covid?

Asked by ragingloli (49936points) January 13th, 2022

Apparently, that is the new fad “medicine” of antivaxxers.

Drinking your own piss to own the libs.

I heard that some anti-vaxxers in the Northern states started eating yellow snow, to combat stupidity.

200 years into the enlightenment and with access to the world’s knowledge at our fingertips people still believe this nonsense? A gallon and a half of polka dot paint wouldn’t be enough.

How much better does it make you feel to learn about this? Does it offset any of the helplessness you feel?

@product
The positive effect on my sense of superiority is immeasurable, as this highlights the depth and breadth of the chasm of intellectual capacity separating me and everyone I consider my lessers.

^ That’s what I thought. Whatever helps. This pointing to people with little power in order to boost self-esteem is understandable, but probably not as useful in the long run as punching up is.

@product You’ll have to excuse @ragingloli. They are from a civilization many light years from Sol and are just learning our customs.

I support your superiority – But not enough to drink my own pee.

Besides, only Sheepublicans believe that bs. Anyone with reliable sources knows toad licking is the real cure.

The anti-vaxxers I know aint that freaking stupid, these idiots are finding new lows in brain power every day.

Lots of naysayers in the replies, yet one has cited any double-blind peer-reviewed research that proves urine is not a cure for Covid.

Leave them alone. It’s a self-correcting problem. And if they are skeptical of hospitals too…

You don’t drink paint, you drink colloidal silver. Then drink your pee. You’‘ll be in sterling shape in no time. And the naysayers will try to tarnish your reputation.

Anti-vaxxers drinking pee will pair well with their current diet of bullshit.

They would do much better if they used cannabis.

this happens to be true

So being socially isolated, germaphobic, and a cannabis consumer are helping me to stay Covid-free. That is so outasight, man! ;)

Caravanfan's avatar

@elbanditoroso No, it’s a bullshit study in a bullshit journal. I actually read the source material today.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@Caravanfan do you think someone is trying to sell more THC ?

Maybe a marijuana growers association ?

Caravanfan's avatar

@Tropical_Willie No, it’s just a badly written paper published in an alternative medicine journal out of Japan.
