    Would you drink your own piss to survive?

    People laugh at Bear Grylls, but if you were in an extreme condition, would you drink your piss to survive?

    He's adapted to the popularity of it quite well.

    I would, I mean I do even when it's not an emergency.

    If I had a Camelbak water purification kit, then yes. If I get any infections, I'll deal with them after I return to civilization.

    That's silly of you. You are supposed to do anything possible to survive...you should know that.

    Some plastic bags, some rocks, a metal can of two, plants, It's fairly handy to know how to distil water anywhere.

    What would you even store the piss with in the first place?

    cup your hands
    but I read that drinking piss will more likely kill you than help you survive if stranded, so no

    Only the first part contains the toxins. The rest is water.

    Why would you be in the desert with no equipment?

    If you are in the desert without anything, they you will die from exposure well before dehydration.

    Well wouldn't I be sleeping?

    I mean sure, due to lack of any location/orientation acknowledgement my body would wake me, but I think it'd be just before impact. So then I'm sure I'd break something on my fall.
