Did you know that's genetic. Only the cool kids have the gene that make asparagus wee smell.

Actually, they now believe that everyone makes the horrible pee smell but only 22% of you have the genes to be able to smell it. Ha ha, sucks to be you! :p

Can't be that hard to verify that surely. Either my piss doesn't smell, or it does and I can't smell it. Find me someone who can smell their own smelly piss and a can of asparagus, and we'll sort this out once and for all.

Asparagus is only marginally less objectionable than smelly piss anyway.

You people scare me - I thought this was a biking site and I find it's a meeting point for people with a lavatory fixation!! :D My wife drinks that green slime and she's never told me of any colourful side-effects. Do you think we should set up a web page where different foods can be rated for the extent to which they impact on our excreta?

I have a friend who was tail-ended by a car, he got his arse impaled on the wing mirror and that changed the colour of his poo . . . spirulina is better than a wing mirror.

That big tall spirulina actually looks mighty tasty. Too bad I know the truth :(

hummus = organic material derived from partial decay of plant and animal matter (actual definition)

It sure can sequester a whole bunch of carbon, especially if you bury your compost in the garden... I would hardly call it a food tho!! :lol:

In addition to the awesome side effect of coloured poo, beetroot juice apparently also makes you better at the sports by reducing the amount of oxygen needed by the muscles during exercise, according to a thing I heard on the wireless recently...
