thoughts from minnesota in january

actually i first thought this years ago when i peed in the woods on a cold night. i saw the steam come off the stream and thunked: hey, i need that heat!

so is that actually true? i mean, if you're cold and you pee, does it make you colder? the pee carries heat out of your body, but it also takes out mass that your body needs to heat. so is it a net gain or loss?
