Scientists Create Human Brain Cells From Piss

It may be true that when you drink too much alcohol you are LITERALLY pissing away brain cells, well sort of. The number one science news story is that researchers in China have successfully been able to create brain cells from human urine. The way it works is pee tends to have skin cells in it that scrape off from the kidneys. These kidney cells are then used for science magic to make brains. This is a huge deal because it could be used to treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, circumventing the need for controversial fetus stem cells. One thing is for sure, no one is against using piss to make new cerebellums. No one can argue that there's life in pee pee. My question is, how long were these researchers experimenting with pee? Wouldn't it be great if it started with one creepy scientist examining someone's urine for fun when he found skin cells? Brings a whole new meaning to the term "science whiz".
