Earthquake countermeasure: Own or trade?

Exchange from an hour ago, huddling under the desk with Cpt. Awkward as the huge quake hit Tokyo...

Salaryman: If we get stuck here for a few days, do you want to drink your own pee or trade with me?
Cpt. Awkward: (without any hestitation) I think I'll drink my own, thanks.

Scary stuff, but the Salaryman household seems to be ok with no bones or babies broken, only stuff!

A man with values, and one who's aware of them; my esteem for Cpt. Awkward has risen considerably.

(You shouldn't drink your own urine, by the way, it'll only make you thirstier. Unless you manage to distill it somehow.)

we can have a all-you-can-drink-urine party tonight!

Glad you're ok, although I'm not sure if contemplating anything to do with Cpt. Awkward's wee could be classed as ok... Stay safe!

Glad to hear the Salaryman household isn't badly affected.

Following the situation from the other side of the planet - glad to hear Mr Salaryman and his family are ok.

I went downstairs after the quake, chatted with the office, went to the vending machine and paid 90yen for a bottle of mt.fuji water to pack into my handbag...

Glad you're OK, and hoping you don't have to drink any urine.

Low lying areas near the coast clearly a gamble. Inland on high ground is good!

Stay safe.

Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes!!!

I will bring up Anonymous point on the benefits of trading urine! But also, considering his difficulties peeing, it might be a considerable trade down in terms of volume... I have to discuss this further with him.

BiJ - Oh, sorry I haven't added you to the blogroll yet, will do it, I just am slow to get around to doing stuff like that!
