Q&A Tuesday*: Why Do We Need to Pee Little By Little

Pee

Today on Q&A Tuesday, we will work with the question Rupert raised in this post’s comment section.  Rupert asked:

Question: “Why do we even need to pee little by little?  Scientists should find a way to drain it out all at once for good.”

Answer: 

Rupert, thank you for this question.  And thank you for answering your own question.

As your question implies, of course there is no reason why “we need to pee little by little.”  This sad, sorry state of affairs makes no sense, no sense at all.

And of course, as you suggest, “scientists should [be able to find a way to] drain it out all at once for good.” absolutely.

But let’s break it down.  The way I see it, I think it is actually pretty easy “to drain it out all at once.”  In fact Rupert, I am confident that you or I or anybody else reading these words can do these drainings.

No, the challenge isn’t the “draining” part but rather the “for good” part.  As you are point out, we need to keep the pee from coming back.

And that’s where the “Pee Vaccine” would come in.  In 1962, President John F. Kennedy challenged and committed the country to sending a man to the moon by the end of the decade.  He said at Rice University,

“We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win…”

So if we substitute “go to the moon” with “develop the Pee Vaccine,”

“We choose to develop the Pee Vaccine.  We choose to develop the Pee Vaccine in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win…”– The Big Milkshake, January 27, 2015.

Now, we have made the same commitment to developing the pee vaccine as we did to reaching the moon.  So I can state with supreme confidence that  just as we in fact did send a man to the moon before the 1960’s ended, then for sure we will have the Pee Vaccine and be pee free before this decade ends.

Thanks again Rupert.
