i'm sure there is a which is worse, a lawyer or gunfighting killer joke in here somewhere...

I like to use tons of the free Purell at the supermarket so the alcohol gets absorbed into my skin and I catch a free buzz.

Close. My logic is that public Purell dispenser plungers are about as clean as your average ATM keypad or public restroom seat. I've seen some people get a pump of Purell to clean their hands before touching something public - I think that is what is intended - but many others wait until after they've touched everything then only use the Purell afterwards, on their way out, thus somewhat protecting themselves but no one else. Everyone who first gets dirty hands and then runs to the public Purell is leaving it filthy for the rest of us.

My rule is I don't use public Purell unless someone I'm with (and who apparently knows me pretty well) gets an extra large squirt, then offers me their hand, so that I can get a dab directly from their hand. I usually pause to consider their fingers' cleanliness, running through a mental checklist of where we've been that day, and what I've seen their hands touching, and how long it has been since the last time they were known to be washed with soap and water, and then I accept a dab in appoximately 20% of cases it is offered.

Besides, washing your hands is, to a large extent, about using friction to dislodge germs and microbes while the soap lubricates them and your skin to make them slippery so the (preferably very hot) water can literally wash them off (I got that from a hospital staff hand washing notice which I read about 4 years ago). None of that process happens with hand sanitizer.

I've got one that will give you the heebee-jeebees (it kinda grosses me out too).

My friend's kids leave their toothbrushes laying on the sink and the heads are next to the faucet handles. That way, people's hands drip on them whenever they turn the faucets off. Sure, presumably the person's hands are dripping clean water, but still, eww. eek

Anyone that leaves their toothbrush exposed in the bathroom is asking for trouble. Everytime you flush the toilet, fecal matter goes airbourne baby! Beware.

A CU, Where Regs Don't Apply
I read something about a study that indicated even in a medicine cabinet, the exposure rate was nearly the same as if sitting on the counter. So unless you put your toothbrushes in another room, you're probably just as bad off.

I should search for the source, but meh, it's more fun to watch people worry and try to figure out if they should believe me or not.

If CYM is really as portrayed...I'm sure he would not last 5 minutes around me because:

1) He'd die at the mere thought of the dogs/horses/cats/dust bunnies/furballs/etc around me, or

2) I'd run over him with my 4 wheeler to put him out of his misery.

If my toothbrush hasn't killed me by now...I'm thinking it's not going to. I don't, however, leave it laying around to be dripped on or sitting in water...ICK!

ETA: I just had this vision of a killer toothbrush running rampant around trying to catch me! eek

I figure since I'm a young-ish healthy adult, probably touching a doorknob isn't gonna take me down. Probably have a much higher risk of being hit by lightning than dying from a doorknob or toothbrush disease.

Based on the volume of death-wishers and death threats posted in this thread, I'd say:

Truth is a deadly killer (for the truth-speaker). smirk

Recycling is a deadly killer. Replacing your iPhone for no valid reason is a deadly killer. Just as we’re all breathing in a speck of Aristotle with each inhalation, we’re also all breathing in 2012’s discarded smartphones.

Me too! Besides, I thought they just recycled (refurbished) them into Straightalk phones and the like.

pooh on gambling regs!
This simply cannot be a real person. Dealing with this much phobia doesn't leave enough time in the day to be a productive human being.

I'm pretty sure the immune system is ineffective against toxic chemicals, lead, radiation, etc. For example...

"Benzene works by causing cells not to work correctly. For example, it can cause bone marrow not to produce enough red blood cells, which can lead to anemia. Also, it can damage the immune system by changing blood levels of antibodies and causing the loss of white blood cells." http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/benzene/basics/facts.asp

from the article

Benzene evaporates into the air very quickly. Its vapor is heavier than air and may sink into low-lying areas.

So it would no longer be on the doorknob but possibly on his shoes (shoes can kill you)

Lead is toxic but protects you from radiation so basically, pick your poison. smirk
