Where Do the Germs Go?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about Germ-X; hell, I love hand sanitizers in general. But, tonight as I sat down to dinner, and ritualistically lubed up my hands and arms with that cold silky gel, the words on the bottle jumped out at me, “Kills 99.9% of germs.”

Don’t worry, I’m not that anal, I can handle the .1% of germs that it doesn’t kill.
But, what I want to know, is where the other 99.9% of the germs that I’m killing are going.

Do they evaporate?

Are these germs dying a slow and bloody death on my hands, only to be smeared across my turkey burger just as I take a bite? Are their dead little bodies hanging from my fingers as I unknowingly suck the ketchup from each one? Am I involuntarily ingesting dead germ bodies at every turn?

I’m totally violated. Any lawyers for the taking?

But germs are good protein (especially when dead). Why anyone would not want to eat the dead ones is beyond me. It's the live ones you ought to be afraid of.

I know this is just a wise-ass thing to say....

but..Perhaps Germ Heaven?

Forgive me, Leila.

Don't worry about ingesting the dead germs. The live ones inside your body live off the carcasses of the dead ones you lick off your fingers. :)

Now that's just wrong! :(

Just kidding. Have a great weekend.

I hope he wasnt being serios?

As this need for cleanlyness actualy causes more issues. We survied many years with thouse 99.9% germs on your hands!! so what makes you think your going to be any heathlyer killing them all, taking in live bacterial builds up the immune system.

"theres more germs on your chopping bourd than your toilet seat" Well it doesnt matter than does it!!! We have managed for many years. If we where so sensitive to bacteria then would have died on day one!

anyway enjoy your dead bateria because yes they stay on your skin. Also there is more germs in a human mouth than most human genatalia!

good evening everyone. I'm really into shoes and I had been looking for that singular model. The prices as regards the velcros were around 340 dollars on every page. But completely I set this locate selling them for the benefit of half price. I exceptionally like these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will probably order them. what can you say about it?
