I've heard that you should keep your toothbrush at least 6 feet away from your toilet at all times because of the airborne bacteria [Frown] from the toilet? interesting, but true? comments?

Nothing is too petty to be thoroughly discussed.

It's not meant to be spam or to bother anyone. I put the link there asking for people to take a look at the site, and if they decide to, participate in it.

Uhh, thanks for changing your .sig, but you need to close your first tag:

code:
[url=http://www.somethingURL.com]my url[/url]

Insert a "]" after ".com"

It's a lot easier to ignore a little link than it is to ignore a huge paragraph. I s'pose we should be grateful.

Actually, you're somewhat wrong in this case. If he wanted to include text, then yes, that would be right. To just link to a page, one does {url}http://www.google.com{/url} (with square braces instead of curlies)

You don't read too well, do you, Cruddy?

{url}http://www.notebooks4free.com/default.aspx?r=604527{/url}

should be:

code:
[url]http://www.notebooks4free.com/default.aspx?r=604527[/url]

Which really makes me not want to follow your link! (as if I had any inclination to do so from the beginning [Razz] )

Sorry to change the subject, but Myth Busters also did an episode on the 5-second rule that showed the cleanest area in your house.
It was the toilet !

______________Does any one really trust Mythbusters, I have seen and know of several errors in the show however it is interesting to watch these two clowns try to prove or disprove the various myths. The Human body has two very septic areas the one you eat through and the one you set on. When you flush a toilet there are some airborne bateria launched from the water swirl do you want to gamble? Looking for water or water droplets is only part of the question. Look at some of those high speed photo's of a sneeze, I prefer to keep toothbrush and other dental gleaning equipment out of sight and out of high air traffic areas of the bathroom.
