I enjoy taking showers spanning multiple hours, and have noticed that I never get thirsty when in there. Clearly, sufficient amounts of water must be absorbed through the skin.
Is this principle applicable when going /out/?
Consider having an insulated water tank (a thermos, like one you keep coffee in) attached to each of your boots. The water would be body temperature so would not make you freeze, and it would also ensure you get hydrated enough when you're on long hikes. Drinking from a bottle would literally become unnecessary.
To make a simple implementation you could use one of those sport flasks with straws. Cut a hole in the boot, make the straw poke at the sole, and then fill the bottle. If the opening of the flask is fixed at the same height as the surface level, laws of physics will keep the water from overfilling
>Clearly, sufficient amounts of water must be absorbed through the skin.
Good god you're retarded. Thirst mostly comes from a dry mouth. If the humidity is 100+% you're not going to get a dry mouth until severely dehydrated.
Interesting idea however the most absorbent place on the body (if not the mouth) is inside the anus.
Imagine, going for a long hike but never having to stop to take a drink! Your idea was good OP but this is a little more refined.
Hhahahaha i hope this is a serious post.
OP, you can't drink through your skin. Also, have you ever had a bath, your skin goes all wrinkly and fucked up if its in water too long.
Your skin will fall off it's called Trench foot and it doesn't always matter the temperature.
Amazingly this is viable, though would need to have an anal probe for interior fluid introduction, as well as a surrounding watertight seal to enclose your rusty sheriff's badge and prevent leakage.
truckers do this BUT they use 10% alcohol believing that they'll pass a breath test
theres,, a what?
,,as you first hithe 61 degree water at Catalina,, it Seeps into your wetsuit., its like that scene in "The Abyss,, "Take it! you spent 9 months in fluid.", AAAAAAARGH!!!
,, bellychill, is the worst!,, you know, jumping in with hood open to FLUSHSHOOCK is the way,, but i do 4 minutes of sissybird chirping at the surface!
,,,Bless coldwater reflex!, a,, spreading warmth,,, 98.6 degree bath.
, timeto Chasealife!
At first I thought you were the same guy who wanted to tow a campfire behind him on a sled when he went walking on the ice so he could warm up quickly when he fell through, but your diagrams are better drawn so I have my doubts.
Too bad. I miss that guy. Should've capped his threads.
this thread is the best laugh I've had all day and im still not even sure if OP was serious.
Go one step further: combine the stillsuit with the hydranus
>instead of catchpockets that hold drinking water for you to consume orally, there is a switch that pushes the recycled water into your rectum
>also design improvements that inject the salt you lose through sweating directly into your veins, avoiding death by hypotonic hydration that would result from wearing a stillsuit
Back to leddit you go, newfriend
