Toilet phone…on August 17, 2011 at 12:01 am
This could be confirmation bias but I’ve seen this sentiment echo across multiple status updates for multiple friends. Ultimately I’m happy that turned out as well as could be, but I’m also thinking I hope you washed that sucker in bleach…
So I’m still trying to figure out the streaming thing. Apparently the codec I have does not support the resolution my lap top uses and I can’t change the res to something it does support because it would screw up how the image would look… Oh wells we’ll get it fixed…
So you can follow me on twitter or deviantart.
I saw this thing on Discovery Channel where they tried to find the most germ infested place in an office. Keyboard, bathroom door/faucet handle and cel phone came in at the top. Toilette seat came in dead last. So I’ll bet dropping it in the toilette probably cleaned it up a little.
Ah, but that was the toilet seat. Not the toilet itself. The toilet seat doesn’t get all of the nasty infectious waste material on it, (unless it’s a public toilet. Then all bets are off.) but the toilet bowl itself? I wouldn’t count on that being all that hygienic.
Mythbusters on discovery did a show on that particular topic. First place went to the average kitchen sponge. Which doesn’t suprise me. Anyone who has ever had to wash dishes by hand has experience with just how nasty those things can get. (It’s when they start moving around that I get worried.)
But an office toilet ends up being just as bad as a public toilet. I’ve never understood the “ewww seat” thing, unless there is visible stuff on it. My butt is both clean and frequently washed!
Before reading the last panel I thoght you were gonna give that phone.
Useless aunt info: if one drops ones phone in the toilet, sink, snow or other wetish place one only has to remove the battery and place the phone, battery and instant rice in a zip lock bag for 24 hours. this should dry out ones phone… please do not use the rice for cooking after. dettol on a soft cloth should kill the nasties that got on the phone when it was dropped.
OMG i have now become my mother full of advice no one wants. AHHHHHHHHH!!
Talk about a shitty phone. Might wanna get a new one.
Heh my sister-in-law dropped hers in a bucket of blue paint once and it still worked miraculously.
