Germs Germs Everywhere

WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!!!!


Well, that may be true in the end, but if you read all the reports about places where we are constantly exposed to germs, you would think we couldn't live through the day.

For example, I just read this article on my home page. It makes me want to carry around a box of rubber gloves and anti-bacterial wipes.

Check it out...

I suppose the question is, how in the world did I live this long?

  • Rubber gloves and anti-bacterial wipes won't cut it, Leroy. Better go for the full bubble-boy outfit. At the very least, it would make for amusing photos.
  • I suppose I should just ignore the warnings and remind myself that even Howard Hughes couldn't avoid germs in the end.

    Plus, there was no mention of about a zillion other things we do to contaminate ourselves.

    Funny, nothing was said about BBQ Grills.

    My Texas Drivers License says that I will 'Expire' in May of this year but they have a renewal provision that I fully intend to take advantage of.

    i'm going to tell you something that (for some reason ) Americans simply don't seem to be able to handle....

    you have more bacteria on you and in you than you do actual cells in your own body.

    people think bacteria are bad simply by virtue of being bacteria.

    you would die without bacteria.

    another gem... there is more fecal bacteria on your tooth brush than on your toilet seat. yes, that's likely the truth

    people really need to get over it. :laugh:

    it confounds me that the forum has an obsession with bacteria, and yet collectively understands virtually nothing about it.

    honestly... why worry about a piece of meat left out for four hours, when your toothbrush is left out for months on ends, literally swimming in fecal bacteria? honestly. please, anyone?

    a brand new, clean, unused toothbrush, left on the counter, will have fecal bacteria (among others) on it, in substantial amount, within a week.

    and that's without shoving it where i'd like you to you to shove yours :laugh:

  • Really? Did not know that. That is about the smallest thing you have not asked me to shove somewhere...no wait it's not

    my favorite rummaging canadian raccoon, though. like a cute woodland friend, but who pays for the boat, too.

  • Did I tell you any stories about walking out of hotel rooms naked looking for something? :blink: Anything! And the door closing behind me? :laugh:

    What was the cool thing - the night time foraging for scraps in the fridge or him paying for the boat? I vote for the latter.

    The best part was that he ripped a hole in the bread bag to get a couple slices and left mustard all over the counter.
  • You are soooo anal! Four guys fishing and you are worried about crumbs on the counter. I think I ate most of the plastic skin on the summer sausage

    with the four of us there at one time, that place was the epicenter of misfit island. you and the foraging, the flatulayer, zippy's footed pajamas, rod and his hillbilly friends on the dock.

    good times. good times.

    don't forget the foreign language lessons I gave you yankees in Food Lion and the Bait Shop

    great memories
  • That was funny. I didn't understand a word you guys were saying

  • And you and your blue suede shoes sliding down the hill clinging to the beer cooler. Notice how quick my reactions were to save the beer?

    to this day I'm amazed none of us went overboard, though I was pretty sure stike was about to throw you in as you attempted to clean that catfish.
  • I nearly had him off the boat at the bridge, little goose on the throttle at the opportune time

    no. blue suede shoes were the airport. had them on tonight actually.

    i had some damn tongs that i thought would be good for the boat. those things had frigging teflon in-soles. that hill and those shoes, plus the mornin dew.... i should have gone ass over teakettle into the lake. luckily rod was bear hugging me the whole morning

    i was tempted to push him one of the three hundred times he stood casually and urinated as though he was checking his watch.

    everyone having a quiet introspective moment fishing with buddies, warm fall day.... and then comes a gentle plashing splashing slapping. oh. just steven, urinating again.
