Add this to the list of not to touch.. When using an escalator NEVER TOUCH THE HAND RAILING!! Same on public stair casing.

Boogers, poopoo, snot, spit, plus a lot of other things are on them.

So why not use the hand air dryers? I thought that was better than flipping the handle on a paper towel dispenser.

I'm with the tinfoil hat crowd, anything the government wants to give away free can't be good! I eat well with fresh fruit and vegetables. I use hand wipe to sanitize things when I go to the store. I have not missed more than 2 days in a row for 13 yrs.

I think they are talking about the push button style. We use the touch free style.

The flu shot has never given me the flu. I get a flu shot because practically my whole family got a really bad case of it when I was in high school. Several of us ended up with pneumonia...there is no way I want to deal with that again...

Flu shots are benefical if you have a compromised immune system, where the risks are outweighed by the benefits. I have never had one, but at my age, I probably should. I work in an environment where I come into contact with hundreds if not thousands of people every day, and people, in general, people are nasty as hell.

The flu is not the common cold. I know, as a young man I had a dose of the Swine Flu, that dang near killed me, and I was healthy as a horse at the time. The flu killed more American soldiers in WWI then died by enemy action.

I think I just talked myself into getting my first flu shot.

I usually get the flu shot. I have gotten some minor "flu like" smptoms a couple of times, but I have never gotten the flu if I had the shot that year. Maybe the flu is afraid of me (but I doubt it). Because of the nature of my work, I come into contact with many people on a daily basis. most of those are prime candidates for the flu. I don't buy into the Alex Jones, grassy knoll boy, conspiracy theory, anti flu shot BS.

Just like religion; you are free to believe what you wish. Just don't try to push your beliefs on me.
