Human Water Consumption Optimization

As a Dog Beach resident, I’ve noticed that all dogs seem to urinate at the Homeland Security Advisory System between Elevated Risk and High Risk.

I wondered if the concern for hydration is over-rated, and a snopes article on hydration confirms that people are stoopid in regards to the concern of hydration:

The best general advice (keeping in mind there are always exceptions) is to rely upon your normal senses.  If you feel thirsty, drink; if you don’t feel thirsty, don’t drink unless you want to.

Yet, I still stay over-hydrated.  I think partly from boredom, habit, and good feeling I get from a state of being hydrated.

On a final note, make sure you wee instead of getting a Wii (link).
