Jelly fish stings

In preparation for all the travel we will be doing in the next couple of weeks I have been getting together a first aid kit. This morning I remembered all the times at the beach having received stings from jellyfish. So I looked up what to do in that case. The article said to remove the tenticals with a stick by lifting and not scraping or rubbing. Then to rinse area with sea water, not fresh water. It also said to pour vinegar on it. The article goes on to say that if in a pinch human urine can be used, preferrably male urine to female urine.

I just can't imagine peeing on someone.
