No. Not so much actually. There's something about piss that just doesn't agree with me. I don't know, I might be strange here, and I know it's your drink of choice, but I just can't imagine piss is all that tasty.
Do you drink it for health reasons? Some people - incorrectly - think it helps you lose weight. Others think it has some kind of medicinal properties. There're a few cultures where the people take magic mushrooms, get high, and then drink their urine because the metabolites of magic mushrooms also make you high. Reindeer will actually drink the piss of humans who've ingested drunks like magic mushrooms for these reasons - aggressively.
So why do you drink it, Boblablahaha?

"Two major goals of laboratory evolution experiments are to integrate from genotype to phenotype to fitness, and to understand the genetic basis of adaptation in natural populations. Here we demonstrate that both goals are possible by re-examining the outcome of a previous laboratory evolution experiment in which the bacteriophage G4 was adapted to high temperatures. We quantified the evolutionary changes in the thermal reaction norms—the curves that describe the effect of temperature on the growth rate of the phages—and decomposed the changes into modes of biological interest. Our analysis indicated that changes in optimal temperature accounted for almost half of the evolutionary changes in thermal reaction norm shape, and made the largest contribution toward adaptation at high temperatures. Genome sequencing allowed us to associate reaction norm shape changes with particular nucleotide mutations, and several of the identified mutations were found to be polymorphic in natural populations."

"Laboratory selection for desiccation resistance, which has been imposed on five replicate populations of Drosophila melanogaster for >200 generations, has resulted in enhanced survivability during periods of extreme water stress. The ability of these populations to persistently resist the fatal effects of desiccation is correlated with evolved physiological traits, namely preferential storage of carbohydrates (associated with reduced lipid reserves) and a dramatic increase in blood volume, which has led to a significant increase in extracellular sodium and chloride content, as well as body mass. When compared to other populations of this drosophilid species, these adaptive traits are unique."

You rub piss on your joints for arthritis?!?

Might I suggest NSAIDs? Start with ibuprofen - you can easily take 2 tablets per 4 hours but, if you have a doctor monitoring you, you might be able to take more.

I don't think the piss will help you, Boblbalyahg. Those people who pour it on you are just stealing your money.

Or you could try acupuncture.

Ok. So I just left my hotel room to venture out into the scary American City nightscape to get my beer. The first drama I see is a young lady, mumbling to herself, taking off her clothes outside a cafe. Yeah, she's young enough to be cute, but she's freaky scary and sounding like an old homeless lady (what do you call them again?). Then she tosses her pants at a wall and screams "I'll kill them!"

I avoid her, wondering if it's drugs or schizophrenia, and venture down the road to find two young women holding hands, both with short cropped hair. I think "hmmm...not Korean, so they're lesbians! HL would be so glad to see them!" and then, with that in mind, pass this coffee shop/small bar I could never quite figure out - it's always full of men who never glance in my direction at all. Ah! Finally, it dawns on me! Gay bar!

Then I find the beershop. One Guiness, two Sierra Nevada - yum!

Leaving there, I narrowly avoid a young Latino man who is apparently showing off his anger to a homeless, nearly toothless, black woman by dancing a little jig, bum faced toward her. She starts screaming hateful vengeance while he walks away, a skip to his step.

I walk around her, she starts shouting something like "I'll kill him!" smoking too, and we're right beside the original crazy girl who is now saying "I'll find the axe. The axe."

I try to find a "Hiding-safe" spot on the corner, but a guy on a skateboard blasts by - so he needed the corner down-ramp - and when I move back to the corner, trying to appear invisible, a powered wheel chair'd person drives up - I have to move again.

And some guy, smoking, turns and looks at me and says something. Walks a bit away. Turns back. Says "you can't hide."

I'm like "F*ck! Dave found me!"

Run back to my hotel room, drinking my beer, listening to a couple screaming bloody murder at each other - I don't think they're insane, just angry.

Ah, Guinness.

America, I love your country!

Oh, and the beer salesperson gave me a free bottle opener. That was neighborly of him :)

We know Chromosome 2 fused because it has teleomeres in the middle of it. They're only at the ends of chromosomes.
This is what a teleomere is: http://www.nature.com/scitable/topicpage/telo...
It didn't fuse gradually. It fused in one go. After that, it was organized gradually.
How do we know?
"The Evidence
Evidence for fusing of two ancestral chromosomes to create human chromosome 2 and where there has been no fusion in other Great Apes is:
1) The analogous chromosomes (2p and 2q) in the non-human great apes can be shown, when laid end to end, to create an identical banding structure to the human chromosome 2.(1)
2) The remains of the sequence that the chromosome has on its ends (the telomere) is found in the middle of human chromosome 2 where the ancestral chromosomes fused.(2)
3) the detail of this region (pre-telomeric sequence, telomeric sequence, reversed telomeric sequence, pre-telomeric sequence) is exactly what we would expect from a fusion.(3)
4) this telomeric region is exactly where one would expect to find it if a fusion had occurred in the middle of human chromosome 2.
5) the centromere of human chromosome 2 lines up with the chimp chromosome 2p chromosomal centromere.
6) At the place where we would expect it on the human chromosome we find the remnants of the chimp 2q centromere (4)."
http://www.evolutionpages.com/chromosome_2.ht...
and
"Let us re-iterate what we find on human chromosome 2. Its centromere is at the same place as the chimpanzee chromosome 2p as determined by sequence similarity. Even more telling is the fact that on the 2q arm of the human chromosome 2 is the unmistakable remains of the original chromosome centromere of the common ancestor of human and chimp 2q chromosome, at the same position as the chimp 2q centromere (this structure in humans no longer acts as a centromere for chromosome 2."
(same link above)
Going with your statement,{It didn't fuse gradually. It fused in one go. After that, it was organized gradually}.

Where is the gradual and slow change?

This Chromosome #2 fusing is telling me there was no gradual change.

But one very big major change.

This defies what evolution has been teaching.

So when did this fusing take place?

Gotta update your OLD news, Boblbahsahalha:

"Tickle This Elmo … Kevin Clash, the Voice of Sesame Street’s Elmo Accused of Having ‘Sexual Relationship with Underage Boy (Update: Accuser Recants Allegations)"

It turns out they had an adult relationship - so there!
