Too bad you guys took this too far lol. If it were clean (meaning weedless) using ones urine is the same as doing a fish in cycle. We did that for years. Do you think the BB knows the difference between Damsel urine and human urine? I can testify, it doesn't. In the old days, long before live rock was part of the hobby, some of my friends would throw big parties to celebrate their new large tanks. The price to come to the party was a jar with a "sample". It was just easier than trying to catch 50 damsels sometime down the road after the tank cycled. It worked like a charm, every time.
Gross? maybe, if you're a prude. lol Urea is urea. So put down the doobie and drink a lot of water to clean out your system. Grab a 6 pack of beer ( another natural source) and help a buddy start cycling their tank

A mix of what? lol I'm not sure what the effects would be if you mixed pot laced urine with "regular". I just know the beer one worked like a charm. (I went to a lot of those parties and paid my fees ) Since I was in charge of testing the water for one of those tanks during the cycle, I saw it all work. I doubt many stores would subscribe to this tactic as they need to sell product but you can supply your own if you don't want to spend the money. Just remember, the more impure the urine is, the stinkier your tank will smell. If you eat asparagus or drink coffee, you know what I mean.

But it's okay if your fish and inverts piss and crap in the tank? That's not like in a toilet? lol Filters don't remove that stuff out of the water, they just contain it in another part of the tank. Until the bb convert it all or you change your filter pads, you are sticking your hands in an actively running toilet. It's just the fish's toilet. You don't believe me? Think about this: What do you do in a toilet?.... you urinate, defecate and vomit. What do fish (saltwater fish I mean) do in their tank?.... eat, urinate, defecate and vomit.
Still don't believe me? Think about this: what is a fish in cycle? It is using the waste material of the fish to cycle the tank. What is the waste material? Urine/urea and feces. OOPS, the same material you put in a toilet.

Let's go even further, say you do a fishless cycle, You are still putting your hands in a toilet once you put the fish in. No matter how you slice it, the tank can be considered the same as a toilet. It's just that you can't see the urine without testing and fish poop is small in a small fish so it's less objectionable. lol

As far as using Red Bull pee, I don't know what effect that would have but it might keep your fish up all night or really hyperactive

Now, aren't you sorry someone started this thread? lol
