Urine a lotta trouble

300 gallons of urine found in man’s home

The Sideshow - 6 hrs ago

Police are trying to figure out exactly how to handle one man’s truly wasteful collection after 300 gallons of bottled urine were discovered inside a residential home.

According to the News-Times, Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) spokesman Dennis Schain said authorities found “200 to 300 one-gallon plastic jugs filled with human urine" during a search of the man’s home in Watertown, Connecticut.

Police have declined to publicly release the man’s name, as he has not yet been formally charged with a crime.

"An environmental contractor ... was brought into help deal with this under our supervision," Schain told the paper, saying DEEP authorities were called in to assess what he described as a home "in a state of disrepair."

Despite the disturbing and unusual nature of the urine collection, Schain said it’s unlikely authorities will actually charge the man with a crime. He’s not the first person to store his own urine, with these cases often tied to mental illness. For example, Howard Hughes famously stored his own urine after retreating to Las Vegas. The actor James Franco even admitted to bottling his own urine, though that was part of a youthful prank.

In the meantime, the urine is schedule to be taken to a waste treatment plant for proper disposal.

So much for Connecticut being an upscale state.

Anyone know which mental illness is linked to this compulsion?

Why would Franco ever mention this to a reporter?

I believe it is a type of hoarding.

Well, we do it to make sure that you're serious about wanting insurance. I mean, if you're not, you won't spend a couple of months filling up that enormous churn with mmm, so on and so on...

I wonder who leaked this news to the police....

by Anonymousreply 1405/01/2013

Yep, this is sounding like a next season of Hording show.

300 gallons. Picture the water cooler in a typical office. I think those are only 5 gallons. So imagine about 60 of those full to the brim.

Talk about a gold rush.

This info probably trickled down from someone who just had an inkling.

Clown on the wall, opossum in the vanity, or demon in the toilet: obviously not a sink pisser.

Why is this a problem? What business is it of anyone else? And if he want's to get rid of it, why not just pour it down the toilet?

Remind me to never live in that state! The authorities are idiots! Just like the jokers in DC!! Idiots!! All of them!

R19, do you realize how long it would take to pour 300 gallons of anything in a toilet? They could however fill the tub 6 times or so and that would work.

Or

He could just throw a Water Boys Party.

I'm guessing this is the reason:

Perhaps part of the disrepair is non-functioning plumbing?

This is why I roll my eyes when the Nutmeggers talk about the "quality of life" in Connecticut.

When my parents died and my partner and I got into the house to clean the mess up, we found that my insane, alcoholic 42-year-old brother was keeping his urine in vodka and beer bottles. And without lids on many and with no AC or heat, it was a huge mess.

We also found shit in paper bags. All this in his suite on the third floor. Christ. I still want to beat him over the head with one of those bottles.

I'll betcha his plumbing was not functioning. And that has nothing to do with money.

When I first became a recluse and was in serious mental condition, all 3 of my toilets failed, one at a time. I did not however save anything. Due to my PTSD and anxiety, I could not bear the thought of someone entering my house to fix them. So I peed in a chamber pot, poured it down the outdoor drain at night when the neighbors were asleep, and I pooed on dual sheets of heavy duty foil. Believe it or not, when parceled tightly into a small package it was impossible to smell. I took said parcels to the nearby grocery store giant dumpster every night.

My guess is that this guy had more bottles than imagination.
