This explains why you can go years visiting the same places (work, home, school, favorite pub, etc.) and seeing the same people, you can avoid the cold/flu. But if you go somewhere brand new with complete strangers, thus exposing yourself to new microbiomes you haven't built up immunities for, you quickly get sick.

Makes sense I guess. I get sick a lot less when I ride the bus more. Since I got hooked on Car2Go I haven't used a sick day.

And the previous guest's symbionts?  Do they expire from loneliness?  Are they eaten by the extant guest's `little buddies'?  Simply overwhelmed?  Or, do some hitch a ride?

Oh come on, guys, what's the point of murdering random strangers for the hell of it if I get caught?

Never take baths in hotel rooms... showers only.

Never touch the TV remote.

You're doing the wrong kind of Farking then.

In the hotel room I picture them fighting a tiny medieval sword battle which the previous occupant's bacteria loses because our bacteria has lots of fresh reinforcement troops.

If that's the case, I want that steri-bomb they used in Almost Human that destroyed all forensic evidence in the hotel room.
