    It’s ok to not use soap if you lick the door handles before touching them. At least I think that’s what I heard.

    They probably didn’t “run out” of liquid soap; the probably removed it so McGuyver can’t combine it with eleven napkins and a handheld Mattel’s Football game to create a seige engine.

    I carry soap sheets for this very reason. Tiny little packets you can get at Target of thin sheets of soap. Congrats on the Time mag mention! You deserve it!

    But you typed on your keyboard – which means you cant touch your face after you touch your keyboard . . .

    What makes people think they aren’t picking back up the same germs when they turn OFF the water that were put there turning it ON before that person washed?…

    Cara: it’s justification by way of germ geography and migration patterns. Shutting off the water with the back of your hand and opening the bathroom door with the fingers you’re least likely to use on your non-dominant hand (say, your ring finger and pinky) ensures that germs will not migrate elseware. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.

    It’s not so much the dirty bathrooms as the canned aircraft air that gets me. At least I can decide not to touch something in a bathroom. The recirculated germs though… *shudder*. They are lung ninjas.

    And I thought it was just me! Hallelujah! Embrace me, brothers and sisters! Oh. Wait. Never mind. Maybe we can just have a nice chat through my plastic germ bubble.

    I just washed my hands for you prior to leaving this comment.

    They smell like grape kool-aid, in case you were wondering. My kids pick the coolest soaps.
