I am so vile

I can't believe I'm posting this.

2,157,120How Many Germs Live On Your Keyboard?



Apparently that's the equivalent of four hundred and sixty something toilet seats. Thankfully for all who know me I'm an obsessive handwasher. Looks like I need to be.

*dashes to computer store for keyboard cleaning products*

Now I need to know how many toilet seats your keyboards are harbouring!

Ha! I have 2,696,400 germs on my keyboard. Top that!

*struts*

McKoala said...

I like your attitude!

Sarah Laurenson said...

Ha, yourself!

There are about 3,280,620 germs on your keyboard right now!
That's equivalent to the number of germs on 656 toilet seats.

But that could be split or doubled depending on what you do when you have 2 computers and 2 of those wonderfully filthy keyboards.

Mmmmmm. Gotta love those germs.

About 3.1 million here. And really, they're the only friends I've got.

Yep- it's germ warfare on this puppy at my fingertips. That's OK. Builds the germ warfare equivalent of moral fiber.

Hey, Pete - what about us???

pjd said...

Aw, shucks, Robin. You knew I was only joking.

2,516,640 Germs Live On Your Keyboard!

I so didn't need to know that.

McKoala said...

Suddenly I feel so clean!

3,055,920 or 611 toilet seats. But not all toilet seats are equal, so that could be better or worse. Not sure.

But the keyboard germs are building up your immunity to real germs. They're like practice germs. So don't hate em.

Bless 'em.

It must be like going to the movies.

I sometimes hear them cheering when my screensaver kicks in (apart from the ones on the back row by the spacebar who seem to exist in a state of perpetual snog) and on a good day, I've been known to dressed up and serve small portions of ice cream.

McKoala said...

But how many, whirlochre?!

December/Stacia said...

Ugh! *shudder*

Sarah Laurenson said...

My zit boy (Garlic) is on the crapometer. If you get the chance, please check it out. Thanks!

jjdebenedictis said...

But how many, whirlochre?!

If they're snogging in the back row, more and more every day!

BTW, Whirlochre, you made me grin. Ice cream! :-D

Whirlochre said...

I reckon about 4,485,876 — and the last time I went round with ice cream, they all rushed to the Q end at once and my keyboard flipped up and hit me on the chin.

Hoping you can partay today!

Nobody's there yet. I'm itching to get started. This could be your head start.
heh heh

Sarah Laurenson said...

LOL

You're killing me, WO!

I am Lady Macbeth. My hands are scaly from the number of times I wash my hands in hot water. HOT water everyday. Yes I am OCD. Toilet seats? Please stop or I'll be hooking myself up to a catheter for life.

It's not the number of germs that counts - it's the yuckiness of them. 1X toilet seat germ is worth like 1,000,000 keyboard germs. Not all bacteria are created equal.
That's what I tell myself as my fingertips stick to my keyboard anyhoo!
