    You know, it didn't really bother me that much. I assume we're talking about borat goes diving, right?

    An average of 5,500,000 (five million, five hundred thousand) cubic meters of water PER SECOND run through the Cozumel channel. That is 475,200,000,000 (four hundred and seventy-five billion, two hundred million) cubic meters per 24 hour period.

    A normal adult bladder can hold 400 to 600 milliliters of urine.

    1,000 divers a day diving two tanks a day could not pee more than 600 liters per dive, or 1.2 cubic meters per day. Let’s round it down to 1 cubic meter per day to account for people with small bladders (you know who you are!)

    And most small boat heads just flush into the surrounding water, anyway.

    It's not the urine. It's all the chemicals we put into the toilets that we then flush into the water.

    Or we could just put the magical blue dye that shows when someone goes and handout tickets.

    What they should be banning is wastewater discharge into the sea...

    Another threat to coral: sewage discharges by Cozumel hotels
