Tech Germs [infographic] – Blog Post [via Elinor Mills]
I hope in some way this is a joke, because people in the world are starting to forget that that we have immune systems, why we have immune systems and that germs are an essential part of keeping a healthy immune system.
Not an excuse for having a filthy home. No reason why you shouldn’t run a cloth with an alcohol or anti-bacterial based cleaner over all the items you touch frequently every so often.
Sure it’s not an excuse, don’t from an extreme to another.
It’s necessary to clean your keyboard and other stuff. The problem with this kind of ads is a lot of people will use strong anti bacterial, and try to kill all bacteria and germ. This is bad, because step by step, we are becoming less stronger against virus etc… because we are trying to clean everything until the last bacteria is dead.
Not all bacteria are bad and they are on earth much earlier than us.
but we have all seen war of the worlds, and life without introduction to bacteria is not safe…
and although these starts are just great if you are to check my bog after i poured a litre of bleach down it and cleaned with anti bacterial dettol and boiling water, and then chec my keyboard after i have run a flash multipurpose cloth over it i bet the toilet still comes up cleaner, but test it after a night of curry and halo with the lads and the keyboard of a days work i bet the toilet is not more hygenic!!
Is not a joke…..Jonathan..I read about this before and and it was gross…SuperMarket Kart handles have poop too..

Idea is simple; sell the fear and the product sells on its own.
Who has died of these germs? Actually, we are getting sick because of the chemicals in the disinfectants and other health “care” products.

The claim that “orange” is the only word in the English language without a rhyme is false. There are hundreds of words without perfect rhymes including: bulb, filmed, ninth, and, rather ironically, poem.
