i know i know. a horrible joke to be sure. but nasa has developed a special bag that will recycle urine into a "sugary sports drink" (i vote they call it "astro-nade" or "space lemonade" ;) horrible puns are my specialty) you just have to read the article to fully appreciate this breakthrough.

When I read this, I thought it was going to be tied into that new Synthohol story that's been going around. Dang, can't find the link on it I saw earlier today.
