Vexing Yet Pointless Questions

Everyone seems to have those questions that have no bearing what so ever on life, yet still seem to bug you. Given the vast pool of useless info available here on the internet, it seems that these answers would be easy to find, but it isn’t always that easy. So, I here by declare this the pointless question post / comment area. If you see a question and you know the answer, fill us in. If you have one, ask it.

My question is when you drink grape juice and then pee, why isn’t your pee purple?

  1. I have always wondered what makes it seem like the room is spinning when you go to bed after having had too much to drink.

    In addition, I would like to know why it is that the aforementioned conditioned can be alleviated by dropping one leg over the side of the bed.

  2. I’m not real sure about your question but I think its because minerals are absorbed into the blood. Your blood is then cleansed by your kidneys and the excess water and waste in your blood comes out as yellow in your urine. I could be 100% wrong though 😉 But….I bet if you drank gallons of grape juice you would get a purplish tint.

    I have a couple:

    How come we choose from just two people for President and fifty for Miss America?

    Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

    Efens last blog post..Interesting Topics…

  3. I would have to do some more research in order to offer a more concrete answer on the matter, but I think the reason that grape juice doesn’t produce purple urine is because the substances that make grape juice purple are not water soluble, thus the substances are extracted from the body via a different mechanism–ahpoop.

  4. Stephanie – Your right, it does. And if I eat a certain cereal, can’t think of which one right now, my pee smells like that.

    Garrick – I remember some of those night out drinking. The leg off the bed trick does seem to work! Purple poop, huh?…hmmm

    Efen – Miss America is soooo much more important that some silly ol’ president.

    Tim – ok
