Ah I think I saw this on Cracked a few years ago.

Edit: found the link http://www.cracked.com/article_20364...-perverts.html

The human kidney creates urine that's less salty than salt water, so if you drink salt water, your body has to expel more liquid than you drank, thus dehydrating and killing you.

I've read this before and I still can't make any more sense out of it than "if you drink salt water you will die"

I think it means the body will try to get rid of the excess salt that has been absorbed, but because urine is less salty than water there is a deficit in how much liquid it can safely produce, so as it produces liquid to get rid of the excess salt it crosses the threshold of safety and dehydrates the body in the process.

I understood the reply to elph more than I did the original post as I thought the same as elph. I took it as you were saying that if you consume salt water, you die.

What is with all these stupid people who never heard that if you're stranded at sea without fresh water you should drink your own urine before drinking salt water?

I know this. But I didn't know salt water could kill you simply by drinking it.
