There was a test done in Chicago a couple years back by a 13 y/o as a science project... She hit 15 or 20 fast food joints, from Taco Hells to Wendys and took samples from their ice machine and toilets. The toilet water had far fewer germs than the ice....

Same was found for motel/hotel ice machines...

I havent ordered a drink from these places in a long time, and now I never will..

This just in. Scientists have recently discovered that alcohol kills germs.

I use a separate water hose to flush my black tank and rinse my sewer hose. That hose is an old white water hose. It may appear that I am using my drinking hose to flush, but I am not. I do use gloves to dump and hadle the sewer equipment.

I'm with AFChap. Builds up your immunities.

There was a special on 60 Minutes many years ago. They had some hidden cameras in different establishments. It was totally unimaginable what the service people would do in preparing food items. I will not disgust you with it on this ..... well maybe you need to be informed.

Preparing hamburgers - fast food - no gloves - picking nose - continue to prepare
Making Pizza - showing off - dropping dough on floor - picking up - continue to process
Preparing food - sticking hand down front of clothing, scratching - continue preparing
And the list can go on.

Escalator rails - a culture swab determined feces on the rail. A video of a person picking their nose going down, wiping it on the rail. (Keep your hands in your pocket)

The number one cause of spreading germs. The transfer of money from one person's hand to another person's hand.

These were all shown on the televised program.

I'm not worried about the person in line dumping in front of me. There are other things in life to fret over.
==============

Dennis, I heard that the other way around back in the early '60's.

Did you know that the FDA allows so much vermam poo, and bug parts in the cereal that you eat for breakfast.
I had a friend that worked in a pickel processing plant; one of his jobs was to dip out the dead rats out of the vates every morning.
I've watched the clean freaks put on their rubber gloves at the dump station, always gives me a chuckle, if they had any idea what was in the food they were eating.
The best thing you can do is wash your hands; (with soap), I've seen folks just rince and dry; (useless)

Okay that is nasty. **Nauseating** I know that we all need a "peck" of dirt but I'll stay away from a peck of the other stuff! We don't wear gloves, but do thoroughly wash our hands after dumping and/or hooking up.

I don't use gloves, just keep handi-wipes, well....handy.

I'm a fat guy, so I need more germs to get sick then you skinny people.

What burn my button more than anything is people at dump stations that don't use their sewer hose. Just pull the valve, and let it go.

All paper money has traces of cocaine on it.

How about the folks that wear rubber gloves and then leave them on the ground at the dump station or better yet, I have seen them down IN the drain.

Could be the germs from the act of dumping without gloves, or eating while dumping, cause stupidity.
Think about it
