A monetary union might be a great idea, but from what I understand, the two countries are quite different in their approach to a great many things, that they will be hard to merge.
Lets say the kid had a Big Gulp and peed 64 oz of fluid. - q Gallon.
If the reservoir is 38 million, or 38,000,000 gallons that means the pee is 38 parts per million, or PPM. Probably more like about 10 PPM.
Thats on par with the few organic compounds currently tested for in water, notably nitrates at 10 PPM.
To my knowledge, there is nothing in normal urine that is toxic to humans... it simply waste that was unused or discarded by the body - it came from a human so going into a human (at one one millionth the levels) seems harmless.
Gross yes, but to flush the whole reservoir seems to be simply panic.
Does the reservoir NOT go through a filtration system before going into the water system?
Just increase the cholrine a bit :-)
I'm reminded of all the people who love pools and hot tubs... ya think there may not be some pee in that water???
A full panel of experts will be speculating on what they don't know in depth at the top of the hour. CNN stresses that all scenarios are still being reported, regardless of how plausible, since no one has any facts with which to constrain them.

I've not watched CNN for over a week but was surprised and disappointed that the bulk of its reporting this afternoon continues to be idle, pointless speculation. Really?

So you forcibly take over government buildings in an orchestrated ploy to destabilize a country and THEN say but don't use force to evict them (us). OMG, almost funny, if it wasn't so serious and sad.
It seems both sides are committed to either have/not-have the coming Ukrainian elections.
Ukraine cannot logical allow each region to have independent local AND international policy (with whom would any other country negotiate? Who would be in charge... no one and thats Moscows goal)
Yet Moscow is bent on exactly that so the eastern Ukraine (atleast) can align the Moscow - effective independence without the name only.
Given than Crimea is now not part of the Ukrainian election (forcibly decided by Russia) it is almost certain the country as a whole will vote for policies much more closely aligned with the West, and given Moscow's recent behaviour probably even more assertively than even months ago.
So both side are backed into a corner... Moscow can't allow a national election which would consolidate Kiev's direction towards the West... and Ukraine can't possible tolerate fully independent regions.
There are two likely outcomes... one side concedes to the other, or a civil war breaks out. A hope for a third option of this playing out somehow naturally and peacefully seems destined to end up in conflict. Ukraine is at a black and white moment.
It seems literally up to Putin, one man, to decide how far to push this.
If there is conflict NATO will be pulled in given not just Ukraine but all eastern countries resulting insecurity and indeed outright threat. If Putin succeeds, there is all likelihood an further emboldened Putin will move further in his bold aggressions.
Twice in the 20th century history we saw the terrible consequences of seemingly small issues rapidly escalating driven fundamentally by one country forcibly taking over others... we're not there yet, but getting closer than since 1940's.
Here's hoping, dearly, cool heads prevail and these bellicose bullying tactics are/get stopped.
