More survey bullshit

"Almost 20 per cent of men do not wash their hands after using public toilets, a national hand hygiene survey has found..."

Link:

More anti- male crap which implies we are dirtier than saintly women!

"...Overall 92.4 per cent of females washed their hands, compared with 81.0 per cent of males.
Female subjects also washed their hands for longer with a median duration of 8.8 seconds, compared with 8.0 seconds for males. Only 8.1 per cent of subjects washed their hands for at least 20 seconds.
Males who did wash their hands used soap almost 10 per cent less often than females..."


We are comnparing apples with oranges here- or perhaps bananas with peaches!

News flash! Males and females have different plumbing and to be blunt- males don't have to wipe urine off themslves (usually) Unlike Jornos, most of us have mastered the art of not pissing on our fingers!

I find the fact that 8% of women don't wash fingers that have been in amongst their bits & pieces more disturbing.

And when leaving a public toilet- your hands are going to touch the doorhandle which was touched by the scrubbed and the filthy!

I have been in many a public toilet where Mr Wobbly was the cleaner than any fixture in the room!

Perhaps it's time gloves came back into fashion...

If you know where your Jones has been, what's the problem? As for urine, a former prime minister of India used to drink a jigger of his own urine every morning. Set him up for the rest of the day, he said.

That depends on what they look like and what they were doing with those fingers.

Now you know why women use more toilet paper.
Seriously I was told by a medical professonal that urine was sterile so it is lack of hand washing after "number 2s" that is the problem.

I'd like to know who was measuring the time it took to wash hands to come up with a 0.8 second difference.

It's mens tendency to read on the toilet I don't understand. Who would want to sit there for an unnecessary amount of time surrounded by the rising fug of bottom gases?

I am more worried about a bunch of pervs hanging around toilets watching people do their business. I hope they actually had clipboards and such like.

Don't worry Brian, they weren't so rude. They merely installed cameras.

Men read on the toilet because the know it's the only place they won't be disturbed :p.
