Same goes for just about any public area. Many of your fellow humans don't wash their hands after wiping their ass. They touch doorknobs, gasoline pump handles, railings, all the same things you touch when you're in a public space.

I don't get people's germ-phobic panic about hotel bedspreads. Sure, they may not be that clean, but neither is pretty much any damn thing in the world. So just deal with it. And this particular kind of lazy "science" reporting is endemic amongst those people; yes, e-coli appears on pretty much everything in public. Oh no! And yet mysteriously most of us don't end up sick from e-coli picked up from the world at large; the vast majority of e-coli problems in the country are caused by contaminated food.

So no, I didn't think I could avoid body fluids and germs by not sitting on the bedspread. I just don't care about something that will almost certainly not hurt me. I do this thing I call "washing my hands." Revolutionary, I know, but it gets the job done.

I'm pretty sure exposure starts at touching the doorknob
 
2012-06-17 09:49:45 PM
you mean I'm not supposed to teabag the hotel alarm clock to press snooze?
 
2012-06-17 09:50:48 PM
I'm more concerned about bedbugs than some common bacteria hanging about on the bedspread or remote control.

Did you think that you couldn't do something that you do every day? Ha ha, think again!

I'd like to see a similar study done in hospitals.

The obsession with everything being sterile and clean is doing us more harm than good.

I shoot gamma rays at everything in a hotel room. Problem solved.

There's more than a few hotels with doglover written all over them if have a black light in hotels round these parts.

Sure I do. I had to clean it off after I removed it from my rectum.
 
2012-06-17 11:37:33 PM
You really can't avoid them. I made sure of it.

I like to imagine that the last tenant fully inserted the pillowcase as I doze off in my hotel bed.

Clearly we need to irradiate hotel and motel rooms in between guest stays.

Going by these standards, all you need to do is wipe your hands with a paper towel, because apparently that magically cleans your ass.

And I thought I was the only one who liked cramming hotel room remote controls up my ass. Well, me and Christopher Walken that is...

Wanting everything you touch to be not slathered in poo isn't the same as wanting everything to be sterile.

This is why I cover myself in feces whenever Im in a hotel room. If you can't beat em join em.

No, what's creating supergerms is everyone rushing to take medicine every time they get a little sick.

Who gives a shiat? Just sleep on it, don't think about the trucker jizz or hooker sweat, and move on with your life.

Whenever I go to hotels it's almost expressly for the purpose of spreading around my own bodily fluids.

Protip: never take the fitted sheet off of a hotel mattress. What you will see cannot be unseen.

Let me tell you a true story about immunization ok. When I was a little boy in New York city in the nineteen-forties, we swam in the Hudson river. And it was filled with raw sewage! OK? We swam in raw sewage, you know, to cool off. And at that time the big fear was polio. Thousands of kids died from polio every year. But you know something? In my neighborhood no one ever got polio. No one! EVER! You know why? Cause WE SWAM IN RAW SEWAGE! It strengthened our immune system, the polio never had a prayer. We were tempered in raw shiat!

So personally I never take any precautions against germs. I don't shy away from people who sneeze and cough. I don't wipe off the telephone, I don't cover the toilet seat, and if I drop food on the floor I pick it up and eat it! Even if I'm at side walk cafe! IN CALCUTTA! THE POOR SECTION! ON NEW YEARS MORNING DURING A SOCCER RIOT!


My immune system is equipped with the biological equivalent of fully automatic military assault rifles, with night vision and laser scopes. And we have recently acquired phosphorous grenades, cluster bombs and anti personnel fragmentation mines.

No, what's creating supergerms is everyone rushing to take medicine every time they get a little sick. The overuse of antibiotics for conditions that are not bacterial in nature, such as viral upper respiratory infections without symptoms of bacterial superinfection, and the idiots out there who DO have an appropriately prescribed antibiotic, but save the medicine after they start "feeling better".


Fixed that for you.

You know where the germs that you want to build up a resistance to live? Blood and poo.

Can't avoid it.. Most I do is dump my luggage in the tub and check for bedbugs.. After that staying at a hotel really isn't any worse than going to any other public place and in many places probably cleaner.
 
2012-06-17 11:59:46 PM
I wash my hands and don't lick remote controls or doorknobs, so this isn't much of a concern to me.
 
2012-06-18 12:01:14 AM
I'm betting that if they checked your house they'd probably find worse.
But hey, at least it would be a family member's poop on your remote.

How many different vaginas have most men buried their face in?
And your worried about a hotel room?
 
2012-06-18 12:10:15 AM
I'm not reading this, because I don't frickin' want to know what fresh (or not so fresh) hell is waiting for us at our hotel room. I'll just keep getting the best hotel/room we can, and stripping the beds immediately upon arrival, to make sure there are no bed bugs along the seams of the mattress. Ta da!
