In an only distantly, if that, related story, I once heard the harrowing tale of a man who was caught in an avalanche. He was driving in the mountains when the snow came a tumblin down and he was burried in his car many many feet underneath it. Convinced he'd die down there, or simply because he didn't know what else to do, like a good man, he decided to get wasted. And thank the lord he had a case of beer (I like to think it was coors) in the car. As he drank he had to pee, of course. The more he drank, the more he peed out the window of his car. Slowly but surely, he was saved by his urine, which had melted enough snow for him to crawl, quite drunkenly, out into the high mountain sunlight.
