Being this is in Japan, I didn't even bat an eye or do a double-take.

Sweet. We're one step closer to a sci-fi decontamination hiss after opening every door...

//Also, time to invest in clear-eyes...

Or one step closer to the de-fungusing chamber from the Super Mario Bros Movie.

You've seen how this year has been shaping up. It's not going to pattern itself on anything cool, it's going to scrape the bottom of the barrel so hard it's going to break through and hit soil.

Maybe we can adopt this for the US. If you walk in wearing a mask - gentle mist of decontamination spray. If you walk in without a mask - quick blast of 500 REMs. Just to be extra sure we get rid of all those diseases.

Article doesn't say what the substance is, but I'm guessing anything chlorine based isn't all that lung-friendly.

Benzalkonium chloride is my guess for what they're using.

In true Fark tradition, I didn't read the article. They're using hypochlorous acid.

I don't want to alarm you, but there's chlorine in your drinking water.

Installing this system at my work was a top priority for a few days until they decided it might not be such a good idea because there was no way of knowing how each individual would react to the solution.

That sounds unpleasant.
