Why Don't I Drink out of the Toilet Bowl, Then?

If the current administration's war on science continues apace, we will have to rely on schoolchildren to tell us what is and isn't safe.

Next time you order the jumboburger of your choice, think about washing it down with a tasty beverage from the nearest bathroom.

Wow. I'd just gotten over reading Fast Food Nation but this may send me running away again. Stupid science.

Only hurts if you think.

I had the same thought, OM. I still can't look a big mac in the eye. Now I can't drink the soda?

This is what happens when our so-called scientists aren't properly controlled by minders.

I crossposted this over at Balloon Juice, and Tim F. had a good point. The toilet would've had disinfectant sprayed in it, and that would've killed a lot of the bacteria.

I hope they don't start spraying that stuff in the ice machine. I hate the taste of disinfectant and Mr. Pibb. Ugh.

(And yes, I know Red Vines and Mr. Pibb = Crazy Delicious.)

Bathrooms are also cleaner than offices.

Just remember that not all germs are bad. Keep that immune system strong!
