What will they come up with next to torture soldiers with?

US food technologists have invented dried rations that a soldier can rehydrate by using dirty water or even his own urine, the British weekly New Scientist reports.

So, instead of a small after-dinner mint, do you get a big pink mint?

Heh, who's on K-Pee Duty this week? hehe. Seriously, though, this is an interesting technology, and one that could cross over into things like long-term space missions. You'll note, however, it does not filter out urea, so actually using urine is a mentioned as being a last resort. Last resort is right. Hell, I think I'd want to roll it in mud before I'd urinate on it...
