Can PEE Cure Ant Stings?!

Can PEE Cure Ant Stings?!


– I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the strike
zone with the fire ant. You guys ready? Your shot good? – [Camerman] Yup. – One, two, three. Holy cow. Ow, ow! Holy cow that’s a lot
of stings already! Okay, I’m gonna have
take my hands out pretty quickly guys. – [Cameraman] You can do it man! – [Coyote] So much worse
than the harvester ants. – [Cameraman] You
got it, 30 seconds! – I can’t, I can’t, I
gotta stop, I gotta stop! (buzzer) – [Cameraman] You alright? Tell me what you’re feeling. – A lot of pain, ah! They’re still on me! (intense drumbeat) Nine, ten, 11, 12,
13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20,
21, 22, 23, 24, 25, oh hey, what’s up? 26, 27, 28, 29. – [Cameraman] Too many to count? – It’s too many to count. I’m about 30 just on my
hand here, I’m guessing I probably took somewhere
in the vicinity of 100 to 150 ant stings
can you see that? – [Cameraman] Yeah your
skin is like all tight. – My skin is tight,
swollen, and it itches and burns right now. Okay, so if you are
ever out in the wild, let’s say you’re out
there for a picnic, put your picnic
blanket right down on a mound of fire
ants, worse thing that could possibly happen, and you don’t have a
first aid kit with you, there’s a little simple
remedy that you can use. It’s kind of gross, but it’s
also kind of interesting. You can actually pee
on fire ant stings, to neutralize the sting. – [Cameraman] Wait what? – Yeah, you can actually pee. The ammonia in the pee will
actually the neutralize the stings and neutralize
some of the swelling. – [Cameraman] Okay, hold
on, wait, we can’t… I mean how are we gonna
have shots of this? – Well, I’m not gonna just
pee on my hands for you guys right here, I actually
brought with me, an entire bottle of Coyote pee. – [Cameraman] No you did not. – Yes I did. – [Cameraman] That is
colored water guys. – That is not colored
water, you wanna smell it? – [Cameraman] Mario! I need you to smell this. – [Cameraman] He says
he’s got a bottle of pee and I don’t believe him. – No I’m not gonna
make Mario smell it, I’ll smell it though. Yup that’s my pee, 100%. – [Cameraman] See now I
really don’t believe you. – Just smell it, you guys
can smell it at home. – [Cameraman] Ugh! – Yeah, gross right? I know, totally gross. It is a bottle of Coyote
pee, but believe it or not, the ammonia that is in
your pee will actually help to reduce the swelling
and neutralize the venom. So what I’m gonna do right now, as gross as it seems, is I’m going to
dump my own urine all over my arms and on
my hands, to try to reduce the swelling and the burning
from these fire ant stings. You ready? – [Cameraman] Not really. – Here we go… – [Cameraman] Hold on, I’m
gonna back up a couple steps. – I’m not gonna
splash you, come on! Alright you ready? – [Cameraman] Yeah, go for it. – [Coyote] Oh yeah that’s pee. And I left this bottle of pee
sitting in the sun all day, and I know this seems
incredibly gross, right, and it is, it’s super gross, I am literally rubbing
pee into my hands, and into my arms. But this is going to help keep
down the swelling from all of the stings. – [Cameraman] Do not pull my
leg, that wasn’t just a bottle of colored water? – Nope, that is pee,
that is pee 100%. That is pee. That is pee 100%. And I left this bottle of pee
sitting in the sun all day. Look at that, my hands have
actually totally cooled down, and I think that the urine, it’s brought out the bumps
in a little more definition, but I think that the swelling
is actually going down at this point. And it’s only been
a couple of seconds. I can tell you this
much, my arms are not burning at the moment. They still itch, but I
definitely feel like the urine is doing the trick. That’s pretty cool. – [Cameraman]
That’s pretty gross. – It is, I agree, that
was completely gross. Probably one of the grossest
things you guys have ever seen me do, but
hopefully this serves as a great example of
what to do if you ever find yourself in
this worst case scenario. I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave! Stay wild! We’ll see you next week. Now while the urine did
act as a temporary relief to my anguish, unfortunately
it did not completely stop the effects
of the ant venom. In total we counted
over 300 stings, and within 12 hours
of the fire ant swarm, my hands have swollen to
nearly double in size, and were covered in
unsightly white postulates. Moral of the story, do whatever you can
to avoid fire ants. If you thought this behind
the adventure was wild, make sure to go back and
watch the full episode. And don’t forget, subscribe,

Breaking Trail.

infected brew

infected brew


pour you a brew because the chestnut beer
is just great for you. Hurray. Chestnut Beer. Deliciouses… hopefully. alright guys happy homebrew Wednesday. So today after three years of homebrewing
I have had my first infected batch of beer. We’re assuming as much. The flavor was defiantly not appealing. It didn’t taste quite like what I’m accustomed
to in trying infected beer, and a lot of what you read online will tell you that an infected
beer you’ll know if its infected because the flavor is absolutely, defiantly, something
that you should not be ingesting. We didn’t really find that with this one,
but It didn’t taste right. It wasn’t horrid, but it was something I
would not feel comfortable drinking. It was buttery. So it. I don’t think it would be something that
would make you sick or anything like that but it was defiantly not enjoyable. Not palatable. It is difficult because with this particular
beer I was trying something unique… not unique but something at least different for
me. I was trying to make a 100% chestnut beer. So no malts or anything other than chestnut
and there was a little bit of sugar to boost up the abv. I was trying to extract as musch sugar from
the chestnuts as possible. You mentioned I think at one point generally
people who brew with chestnuts have to add a malt base just to get the ABV content higher
just because chestnuts by themselves don’t offer a whole lot of sugar. Cheers. Cheers. Initial thoughts? It’s not very good. It’s not great. Its kinda butterscotchy. Yea, without the sweetness if you had butterscotch
without any sugar. I mean the first smell was bad, and the rules
of judging if a beer is infected: If visually something looks bad. Right. If it smells bad. smells bad. IF it tastes bad. tastes bad. Then its probably bad. If it looks like a banana, peels like a bananana,
IF YOU CAN SLIP ON IT, its a banananana. This may be my first infected batch. Its very clear now. Yea honestly its not cloudy. I’ve seen infected beers, they can be pretty
cloudy. This is fairly well. Everything has dropped out of it. It’s very clear. I don’t know, I’ve never had something
like that jellyfish looking thing in the carboy. SO I went to go bottle my beer today and right
on the top of the inside of the fermenter was a jellyfish floating. I was trying to figure out what could that
be? I thought maybe it was infected but I believe
it’s actually the proteins combining together with the Gelatin. If I leave it for a couple days it should
fall out. So lets see what happens. Now you can see it is defiantly clearing out. Right about here there is a difference in
the color. The top here is a little bit lighter than
down here. So I’m hoping this is droping out. Down here you can see all the sediment with
the yeast. So a coupke days this should move down and
I’ll rack it off. So I still don’t know what it is. That jellyfish that was on top did fall out
right where I’m shining the light here. Little blob. Thats it. It’s just sitting on top of the yeast cake. I was thinking and hoping that it was just
the Gelatin. I was kinda rushing that process at the time. I haven’t used Gelatin very often. So I was hoping that I might of let the Gelatin
boil in the microwave and that could have caused the jellyfish looking thing. There’s a couple other things that could
have happened. Could be from Acetobacter which can live on
dust particles. Is that a bacteria? Yes, I believe so, Yes. What that does is when it mixes with oxygen
it can start turning your beer into vinegar. I definatly don’t get vinegar from this. The initial flavor is very strong chestnut. I defiantly taste chestnut. It’s just the aftertaste when you exhale. Very.. very strange. It’s not funky like when you drink a sasion
or anything with brett. I’ve had nothing like this. It’s not good. Anotherthing that can make ropey beers is
pediococcus. I don’t think that should be the culprit
because it has no sour flavors. No its not sour. Like you said its more of a butterscotch quality. Just not as sugary. I think it would be acetobacter issue. So there you have it. Try it out yourself see what you think and
if you run into similar issues. And if you have had simular issues and you
know what the problem was that we might not know. Feel free to comment and let us know. Let us know if you’ve tried anything similar. If you’ve done any chestnut beers or tried
anything… any information would be fantastic for any other viewers and ourselves. So thanks for watching appreciate it and catch
you next time if we don’t die. What to take us out with a song? Sure. Well the chestnut beer it didn’t work because
its not great, it tastes like grapes, except it dosen’t, it tastes like butterscotch,
with no sugar, it tastes like cock… am I allowed to say that? You’re allowed to say whatever you want
its youtube. ALRIGHT. well all the beer just tastes like cock. Not that I would really know. But hay its cool if you know what cock tastes
like in a brew. Thanks everybody. Adios

Jellyfish Challenge!


– [Coyote] Here comes one. – [Mark Where? – [Coyote] Oh it’s too deep. – [Mark] Too deep for what? – [Coyote] I’m gonna
try to catch one. – [Mark] You’re gonna
catch a jellyfish? – [Coyote] I’m gonna
catch a jellyfish, ready? – [Mark] Is that possible? – [Coyote] I think so. – [Mark] Okay. – [Coyote] Let’s see
what happens, ready? Ahh! (jungle beat music) What’s going on guys? Well it is another day off
for the Brave Wilderness team. And instead of lounging around, what we’re gonna do is
take these sea kayaks out into the waterways
around the San Juan islands. We’re gonna be exploring and
see what we can come across. And if we’re lucky, fingers
crossed, maybe we’ll see some marine mammals. Approaching quietly
in a sea kayak, is a great way to
observe wildlife. So as long as we kept
a respectful distance, there was a good chance
we would have luck seeing some animals. Check this out guys. I just found, if I
can get it up here. Mario keeps balance, can you
turn it toward the right? Look at this. (suspenseful music) Look at that. Ow, he’s pinching me. Woo, that’s a big
kelp crab right there. Look at that guy. Wow, there’s all
these kelp beds. And look at those pinchers. That’s awesome and he’s
covered with seaweed on its back, and it’s
got algae growing on it. That is a kelp crab right there, and it’s just sitting there
pulling apart little pieces of the kelp, and then
forcing them into its mouth. Look at that. Woo, those pinchers
mean business. It’s actually the largest
kelp crab I’ve seen since we’ve been
here in Washington. Now they get significantly
bigger than this. Look, the plastron
underneath there, you see how thin that is? That means that this is
a male and not a female. Females have a much
more rounded plastron and the males are far pointier. Ooh, that guys cool
looking thought. Trying not to get pinched by it. He’s got a pretty good reach. Woop…almost got me there. Alright, I’m gonna set this
kelp crab back down here into the kelp and we’re
gonna keep searching for other bizarre
marine creatures. Alright, see you later buddy. After I released the
crab back into the kelp, we quietly drifted closer
to South Peapod Island, which is hailed as one
very popular bird hangout. Alright guys, so just
behind us on the rocks right here, we have a
pair of Pigeon Guillemots. It’s a little marine bird, and they’re very distinct, they have same color
structure as an orca. They are black and
white, but they have these really distinct bright
kind of pinkish red feet. Mario’s trying to get a
really zoomed in shot, we’re being really quiet, just
trying to not paddle at all, we’ve drifted right up to the
edge of the rocks like this. They’re just kind of
looking down on us saying, hmmm, look at that kayak. This massive rock was
also the perfect hangout for western gulls, one of
the most plentiful birds on and around the islands. With a wingspan of
nearly five feet, they’re rather sizable. And as we drifted closer, they all looked down on
us with curious eyes. Believe it or not,
a flock of seagulls is rather intimidating. So after a few admiring moments, we paddled on toward
North Peapod Island. We’re still about 800 yards out, and I can hear, from here, that there are a whole
bunch of harbor seals hauled out on the shore. So what we want to do
is approach very slowly, very cautiously. We don’t want to get
any closer than about 200 yards from the island, and we’ll see if there’s
any out in the water that actually get curious
and come up near the kayak. (seal barking) look at that, there’s a
harbor seal right there. Right off the side of the kayak. Hi buddy. (adventurous music) Harbor seals hail as being the
most widely spread pinniped, or true seals in the world, and can measure up to
six feet in length, while weighing
nearly 300 pounds. Staying a respectful
distance form the island kept the animals at ease. However, as a human
you can’t help but feel a little hesitant,
as they surrounded us from nearly every angle. The good news is that harbor
seals are seldom aggressive, and oftentimes they’re
simply curious, like little water puppy dogs that just pop their
heads out of the water, to say hello. Filming seals from a distance
was rather difficult, so we decided to
turn our attention to another marine creature that was also
incredibly plentiful in these off shore waters. – [Mario] Surrounded
by jellyfish right now. – Here comes one. – [Mario] Where? – [Coyote] Oh it’s too deep. – [Mario] Too deep for what? – [Coyote] I’m gonna
try to catch one. – [Mario] You’re gonna
catch a jellyfish? – I’m gonna catch a jellyfish. A moon jelly,
should I pick it up? – [Mario] You’re gonna
pick up that jellyfish? – Not by the underside,
I’m gonna scoop it from the top, so that the
tentacles don’t get me. Ready? – [Mario] Is that possible? – I think so. – [Mario] Okay. – Let’s see what happens, ready? – [Mario] Yep. – One – Are you sure about this? – Two Aaah! Aaah! – [Mario] Did it get ya? – Just kidding guys. That’s a moon jellyfish, and while they’re capable
of stinging very small prey, the sting has absolutely
no effects on a human. But it’s very slimy. – [Mario] You tricked us. – I did trick you. In fact I’m so confident
it won’t sting, Mario go ahead and put
your hand out there. Right into the nematophores,
which are right in the center. Slimy but not stingy. – Nothing. – Nothing at all, right. See I’ll even
place it right down on my forearm, like
that, nothing at all. You see that? That’s what I love
about moon jellies, see they have those little
crescent-shaped circles right there underneath the
top of their body structure. Very cool looking. Alright little guy. I’m gonna get you back
in the water here. It’s important that we keep
the jellyfish hydrated. – [Mario] You see these washed
up on the beaches a lot. – Yeah, they do
watch up on the beach and unfortunately the
ones that are washed up on the beach usually end
up drying up in the sun and dying, but they are all
over the place out here today. And you look at this
one, and you thinks oh that’s just a tony jellyfish. You guys want to
see a big jellyfish? – [Mario] Yeah we have
seen some bigger ones, where are they? – I’ve got one right here. – [Mario] Oh you
had one all along? – No when we were in
between takes there, there was one floating right
next to my kayak on this side. I lifted it up and
got it in the boat. Look at that. Look at all the little
moon-shaped crescents inside this one,
can you see that? – [Mario] That one
has more than four. – [Coyote] Yeah, that one’s got
one two three four five six. and it is just so
incredibly slimy. I do have to keep
dunking it in the water to make sure that
its body stays moist. Look at that, my
hand is all wrinkled, from being in the water all day, and now its coated in slime. – [Mario] So you
weren’t nervous, trying to hold that jellyfish? – No, I knew that this
species wouldn’t sting me. But there are some species
out there that do have an incredibly potent venom, so much so that some
species are capable of killing a human. – [Mario] Really, like what? – I believe the box jellyfish. – [Mario] Ooh Australia,
coming up soon. – Yep, you do not want to
mess with the box jellyfish. – [Mario] But a moon jelly. – The moon jelly, totally safe. Well I would definitely say,
this was one epic expedition. Exploring around the
San Juan Islands, where we came across all
sorts of marine creatures, from crabs and birds
to harbor seals, and even these
slimy moon jellies. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next location. Alright, let’s put ’em
back into the water. There you go. Back into the current. I’m covered in slime. It is important to repeat
and remind everyone that while moon jellyfish
are completely harmless, there are several
species of jellyfish around the world that
are incredibly venomous. These varieties can
inflict a series of stings that will certainly be painful and in a worst case
scenario can even be deadly. So remember, always
do your best, to avoid coming in contact with a jellyfish. If you thought kayaking
to the Peapod Islands was an exciting adventure, make sure to go back
and watch the episode where we paddled out to
the abandoned Fort Gorges. And don’t forget, subscribe, so you can join me and the
crew on our next location. Look at the minerals
coming off of the brick, and creating stalagmites
and stalactites. (coyote howling)
