There are about 1,887,480 germs on your keyboard right now!
That's equivalent to the number of germs on 377 toilet seats.

Does that count me??  ;D

I think my dogs and granddaughters got me!

I got a wireless set up and a 5 hour battery on my laptop, does this mean I can't surf the web while sitting on the throne anymore?  ;)

Ok, this is kind of gross...

My daughter sent me this link.

Answer the quiz and post your results.

Here is my disgusting results  :-[ :

Couldn't find yours but this gives the same results:  http://www.cyberclea...n/Keyboard_Test.html

Mine was 2,336,880 which equals 467 toilet seats (or 1 salad bar).   ;D

Reminds me of an episode in the Invader Zim cartoon series, where Zim ordered a pair of germ-detecting goggles, and was able to see for the first time how millions of germs were crawling over everything he looked at or touched. He became hysterical at the unhygienic nature of his environment, and started spraying an anti-bacterial solution everywhere, but as soon as he stopped, the germs rapidly multiplied and came back in full strength. It was very traumatic for him.

I'd be less concerned with "how many" than I'd be with which? ;)
