Your Keyboard Has More Germs On It Than Your Toilet
In the past I've worked for radio stations who have done a disgusting contest "Lick It To Win It" where they get listeners to one up themselves in regard to what they're willing to lick to win tickets. Inevitably someone says "I'll lick the inside of a toilet bowl" which seems like it would be quite nasty.
It seems counter-intuitive but it turns out that a test conducted by British microbiologist James Francis back in 2008, according to an article from ABC News, showed that your computer keyboard hosts a level of germs up to 5 times higher than a toilet seat.
While I didn't swab my keyboard I did take a jewelers eyepiece to it and snapped the photo above which in retrospect I wish I hadn't have. Ewww. Where are the Lysol wipes?
