    I grew up in southeast asia & am back living here now (I’m Australian), and considering a lot of the toilets I’ve seen (and used without hesitation), I’m amazed when people get fussy about perfectly clean public toilets in western countries – most public toilets get cleaned with strong chemicals multiple times a day! you should be more scared of your own toilet, or one at a friend’s house, if you’re really that worried.

    I guess I don’t understand why so many people are selectively germaphobic – there are so many things that get handled by everyone and never cleaned (like money!) that no one seems to care about as much as public bathrooms. with my upbringing I guess I have a good immune system and a stomach of steel, so i don’t really worry about any of it. but if I see someone mowing a lawn or decorating with freakin burlap, I run a mile! hayfever sucks.

    all you hoverers must have amazing quadricep muscles! maybe I should start just for the fitness benefits…
