Your kidneys form urine by filtering wastes and extra water from the bloodstream. The waste is called urea. It is carried in the bloodstream to the kidneys.
From the kidneys, urine travels down two thin tubes called ureters to the bladder. The bladder stores urine until you are ready to go to the bathroom. It swells into a round shape when it is full and gets smaller when empty. If your urinary system is healthy, your bladder can hold up to 16 ounces (2 cups) of urine comfortably for 2 to 5 hours."

As I get older, and older, and older, and start falling apart... Well, is it any surprise that the only two I got were the gravity and urine ones?

As a "urine expert" I will be very disappointed in PF if she misses that one!
