Oh, God... please tell me there are ways of avoiding kidney stones. My brother had them a while ago - and actually passed out with the pain at one point. I really do not want to get them... ever.

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

AFAIK none of the above will help, they're just an unavoidable side-effect of the chemistry in the kidneys. Quacks used to put you on a low-calcium diet afterwards, but research has shown that had almost no effect, and there are other quite serious consequences in later life.

The best thing is to have a Special Mutant Power that makes you immune from most of the pain.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Ureters.
The ureter is the input channel into the bladder.
IANAQ but I believe the urethra is the output channel.

Ermm, is someone experimenting with bodyheat to power an iPod? What does it have a thermocouple
as part of its design. Hmmm I guess the girls could have an iPod and a cellphone going constantly. [blush]

Can you imagine rectum rectifiers? or bridging one to another portal to boost cunductance? [crazy]

eDJ - Uh...right...okay. Somehow I'd envision the following comment subsequent to that:

Are you charging your iPod, or are you just happy to see me?
