A strange pee question

I know that I've probably opened the floodgates. I expect a torrent of humorous replies, a veritable flood of witty banter. For those of you flush with suggestions, I'd be most grateful. Rather than splash my thoughts throughout SF, I thought I'd concentrate them within Body Consciousness. It'll be a relief to hear of solutions to my dilemma. So, please keep the stream of ideas flowing... Now that we live in an age of water conservation, many in the UK have heeded the governments advice; only flushing the toilet after a 'larger' movement (same faces you pull while bench pressing, but without the stench). Anyway, I've noticed that after about 4 weeks (still being flushed about twice a day) a thick calcium like film builds up over the entire submerged part of the toilet. Normal procedure simply won't shift it. Bleach, mild toilet cleaners and toilet brushes have no impact. Only spirit of salts or caustic soda does the trick. Now, this is a toilet that only I ever use. Nobody I've talked to (not even the ladies I try to impress at dinner parties) seems to have any idea of what I'm talking about. I can only assume that it MUST be the enormous amounts of broccoli I consume most nights. Maybe I have Super Macho Strength Pee, rather like the stuff that ate through 5 decks of the space ship in Alien! Maybe I could bottle it. I'd be RICH, RICH, RICH, beyond my wildest dreams! I'll have bespoke suits and... Should I be considering a patent lawyer or a psychiatrist? Not really a problem, I'm just curious as to whether a change in diet can do this

Just flush the damn toilet after you take a piss or a shit. I doubt you are really doing an environmental favor by dumping everything from bleach to caustic soda rather than just flushing it.

Not a diet change, I believe that it is caused by the water and the materials that the toilet is made of. Seek a home improvement center for a better toilet.

I'm just glad that his post didn't involve ants.

Urine was once used to make saltpeter, an ingredient for gun powder.

Or decomposing bodies (nitrite part of saltpeter)

Thanks for all of those thoughts. I was half-expecting a stream of invective. It's been a load off my mind.

In the cause of environmental friendliness, I've always tended to aim too high. However, if the trickle-down effect saves just one coral reef in the Pacific Rim, I'll be happy.

It was also used in dyeing. And according to one source, in medieval Spain, the nobility (take note, LK) used to brush their teeth with stale urine. Not sure how one determines it's stale. Taste?
