That hand dryer seems kinda dumb, seeing as how people's hands will touch it and spread cooties. The one true hand dryer video is here.

But that hand dryer still operates on the old paradigm of using hot air to dry the hand. This new hand thingy transgresses the paradigm by using fast air to blow the water off. Innovative!

I've seen and used those at an airport somewhere (not Gatwick). You have to be very careful to keep your hand from touching anything, but it's possible. I prefer more conventional ones.

Cogg old bean,

I see your laudanum dependency has started to affect your ability to write comprehensible English. Confining ourselves initially to the more mechanical confusion into which you've gotten yourself, I suspect you meant "A true æsthete would never deem himself capable of appreciating poetry in translation". Conceptually, of course, you're off your rocker, because the manifest suggestion of what you've written is that poetry in translation is capable of being appreciated by some, just not by æsthetes. But I suspect that what you really want to say is that one can't really properly "appreciate" poetry in translation at all.

Yours,

Seriously, the poetry was awesome. Want more. Vaguely reminded me of this awesome book. (Out of print, sadly, but I'll bet parsimon could track it down for you.) Daniil Kharms' work can be found here, but the translations in the book read more smoothly.

Also, trailing off into ever more tenuous links to the original post, I'd forgotten in some recent poetry thread to mention the absurdist works of Kurt Schwitters and Hugo Ball. One of Schwitters' poems is featured in the great short film Primiti Too Taa. One of Ball's was the basis of Talking Heads' 'I Zimbra'; you can hear recordings of his poetry recited by Ball himself, as well as others including Marie Osmond, here.

61: Look, *of course* you guys should wash your fucking hands. What I'm saying is that once washed, they're as clean as they're gonna get, and hence the dryer is probably less germ-laden than (say) the door, the table you're sitting at, etc.

On the other hand, the chances that any given planet would ever have evolved life is very small. Yet here we are, on a planet with life on it. Our very existence depends on that unlikely possibility.

Yet we go into unknown bathrooms and ask "What is the probability that a recent user of this bathroom had antibiotic resistant TB? Very small indeed! Therefore, I will lick the floor with my tongue."

But we are wrong to think that way, because if the law of averages were correct, we would not exist at all.

Conclusion: do not lick the floor of public bathrooms, at least not with your tongue.

Standard classroom example to go with 71: consider the many people who would be disgusted at the prospect of touching a stranger's feet, yet have no trouble shaking a strangers hand. Then consider where the average hand has been in the previous 12 hours.

Jesus still has not fully accepted his corporeal status -- and ours.

He knows the rules: if you don't wash your hands, you don't get to lick mama's butt hole.

OMG! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so I did both. B's clearly going to hell. And not the good one.

Tim, you're calling my mom? THANK YOU. Feel free to sleep with her, too--the woman could use a damn orgasm, I'm sure.

On the veldt, analingus is how children bonded with their mother. It's like grooming for chimps.

I wash my hands after I pee, but always grudgingly. Reading ogged's link may just have made me more enthusiastic about the habit.

But reading Emerson's link makes me wonder if I ought perhaps to be washing them with my urine.

I was never properly incentivized to wash my hands.

Who eats cookies in the bathroom?!?

The big boss at a job I had several years ago. When he wasn't busy running off copies of church flyers on the state-owned Xerox machines, he would reportedly take his bag lunch into a stall and settle in for the duration. No word on whether this was with or without pants.

Wait, you mean that was a rhetorical question?

A friend had a co-worker who sat on the crapper munching hard-boiled eggs. The guy suffered from late-stage alcoholism (colloquially "water brain".) This incentivized my friend to go into recovery.

Searching for "water brain" gets me a lot of links on hydrocephaly. Did the man have an enormous head, or are you talking about something different?

A friend suggested to me that the idea of flossing while shitting is even more horrible and disturbing than the idea of eating while shitting. What do you think?

I googled too. The term may be used only within the alcoholic community. As I remember, talking to oneself, a blank stare, and shuffling around aimlessly are among the symptoms.

153: We don't do these things, we just contemplate them and shudder. But I suppose doing that might count as having something wrong with one, too.

152: No, the eating/shitting combination is worse. What would make flossing gross alongside shitting is what makes it gross all on its own.
