It's VILE to pee in a swimming pool if you're over the age of two . . . in other words, if you're old enough to know better. When your pee mixes with chlorine, it can actually cause respiratory problems for people swimming.
But when you're in the ocean? Let it flow, baby.
The American Chemical Society says it's not just okay to pee in the ocean . . . it's actually GOOD.
The ocean is so big that your pee is diluted instantly, so it can't affect anyone . . . and its chemical makeup is pretty similar to the chemical makeup of the salt water.
Plus, there's a compound called urea in your pee that combines with the water to make ammonium . . . which feeds the plants in the ocean.
And finally, if you pee in the ocean, you're not the only one. Every animal in the ocean is already doing it . . . including whales, which pee out approximately 256 gallons every day. (Daily Mail)
