Gross Facts

    I was on my way home from dropping the kids at school, and on the radio they were talking about gross facts. The first one shared: Did you know that 90% of dust is made up from dead skin cells... Just thinking about my dusty dashboard and how the kids sometimes draw with their finger in it.... uuugh... 
    Another one was that when you get bitten by a mosquito, it leaves behind a little deposit of pee...
    One of the more well known ones mentioned is that when you flush the toilet without putting the lid down, little particles from the toilet water can travel up to 4 meters away... Eeewe if your toothbrush is in there :-&

    Got any to share?

    Well... I'm off to go clean my car...

    So more from the net... uugh...
    -  Step outside and smell the roses. On a daily average you will inhale 1 liter of others anal gasses (I actually laughed at this one... still gross though)
    We all like a man who gives a nice firm hand shake. However, you might want to think twice before returning the firm grip. Annually you will shake hands with 6 men who have recently masturbated and did not wash their hands. (Hand sanitizer anyone?)
    In the mood for fast food? An average person will consume 12 pubic hairs in their fast food annually. Gross! (I have just put myself off from our usual Friday routine of McDonalds)

    I'm OK with bugs in food.

    Each person eats on average 4 spiders a year in their sleep. That eyelash on your cheek in the morning? That ain't an eyelash.

    "Almost all humans have Pin-worms in their colons. Most don't ever notice these tiny parasites unless they have an unusually high amount. You can find out if you have a high amount by having someone gently touch around your anal area with Scotch Tape while you sleep, this is when they are most active. The worms will stick to the tape and you should be able to see them. "EEW!
    Who the hell would ask somebody to scotch tape their butt hole (while asleep) to check for worms? 
    "Darling... When I am asleep, please take some tape and pat my asshole to  check if I have worms. Love you hunny, good night!"ROFL...

    Lmfao!!! I don't mean to laugh ;) but I have ALWAYS worn underwear to bed. Always. Even if it was only a teeny tiny thong! That little piece of material was going to protect me from the anal/vag bug intruders!!!!!!

    Christ...just when I thought I was safe and didn't need a therapist.  I got the willies from hell right now.  And yes..I watched a show once where the people working in the restaurants were just flat pissed at life in general and wanted revenge in any way they could get it.  Jacking off in mayo, pissing in pickle jars putting boogers and pubic hair in food.....I very SELDOM ever eat out.
    ETA:  Oh, and McDonalds and all the 'other' fast food burger joints? Number ONE on the list of worst unsanitary places to eat.  Yeah, they are making minimum wage...not afraid to lose their job (plenty more where that came from) and are generally treated like shit at work...think they aren't looking for a release?

    LOL!  I once worked at a McDs.  First job I ever had.  One thing to remember..it is NOT burger king and if you want it your way...it WILL cost you.  Especially if you send something back bitching about it.

    And REAL restaurants...done that too.  Never be unkind to your waitress/waiter.  You may not know what the chef does, but I guarantee you that if you piss your waiter/waitress off, by god, you will get a bonus for your buck.

    Oh, why did I read this? Knew there was a reason I don't like peanut butter. And no more orange juice for me. The pubic hair thing is just nasty. Dust being dead skin cells...looks like I need to dust more than once a day.

    The fact about how fecal matter flies in the air after you flush the toilet is why I put my toothbrush in a drawer! And I use paper towels to open doors when I leave the bathroom, to go back to my office, to eat.

    BUT if we all worried about these kinds of things, you'd go nuts! Those facts about bugs and stuff in your food - well, if they haven't killed you yet, they're probably not going to! (I really hope.)

    I'm with @mammateeroll on the restaurant thing. Been in our restaurant for 8 years, and we have *never* messed with a customer's food. Even all those things you hear about steaks being dropped and then replated? Nope. It drops, into the garbage it goes. I mean sure we joked about it, but even if we really disliked a customer, we still valued our food enough to not trash it that way.

    I should have never opened this thread knowing how paranoid I am, but damn my curiosity is so much stronger than my sense.   Thank you ladies for the info. I am now going to TRY to forget and retreat to my little sanitized bubble. :P
