We have the Hulu version with the ads. The only downside to me is that it seems like they only have three commercials so you see the same thing every break. One cool thing is that they have a timer so you know how long the break will be.

True. It minimizes the the old "its coming back on" yell from the other room and you have to dash back in to not miss your favorite show. Or now pause/rewind. [smile]

I just discovered a part of the City of Milwaukee proper extends past 124th Street into Waukesha County. Less than one square mile and no one resides there.

On edit: ditto for Washington County.

I never knew that!

I grew up in Greenfield which has the most absurd footprint of any city I have ever seen--and is responsible for the weird border of the city of Milwaukee on the SW side.

Everyone washes their hands (well they at least they know they should) after they go to the bathroom...yet no one ever washes their hands before eating. Seems most sicknesses comes from mouth/nose and enter mouth/nose. Should I not be washing my hands prior to shoving my germ filled hands in my face?

Is there a study on this? We should probably wash our hands for both...but if we were really going to only do it for one of the occasions I almost feel like it should be before eating. I always hear my toilet seat is cleaner than my kitchen counter.

You REALLY need to clean your kitchen counter. I know I'd much rather lick my counter than my toilet seat.

Plus civilized people use silverware. [laughing]

Hey....that is what the studies say. Maybe they were testing the kitchen counter of a cat owner, then the kitchen counter is basically a toilet too.

Yeah, I know - the studies generally focus on the dishrag that is used to washed counters and left hanging, but damp. Still...

If the pizza is good, it MUST be eaten with a fork (because "good" means its deep - its called a pizza pie for a reason [smile] ). But the funniest was to go to Germany and watch them eat french fries with a fork. Germans eat very little with their hands. Of course... they don't seem to be having as much problems with COVID as the rest of the world is either.

Half of the purpose of your salivary glands and digestive system is to kill bacteria and viruses. Generally, if you get sick from eating, it is something inside/on your food and not on your hands.

Unless you were touching chemicals with your hands, washing your hands before eating isn't that big of a deal. That, and utensils.

You can also wash your hands too much removing oils and wax your body creates naturally. This can lead to skin rashes and can also hurt your immune system.

All I am getting out of this is I should just stop washing my hands after going to the bathroom too. Let nature take its course.

Though I am not going to lie, sometimes I wonder if it is cleaner (in a public bathroom) to use a urinal, skip washing your hands, and kick the door on the way out. Especially true when you have to touch the faucet handles and paper towel dispenser. The worst is that dang door on the way out...all those people touching it when they don't wash their hands. I actually always use my foot on the way out or will push the door open using a non typical spot where no one really touches it.

I was at a car dealership about a month ago and they had a little thing on the base of the door that had some kind of grip or mini spikes on it that you could "grab" with the sole of your shoe and pull the door open.

LOL

I do that too, however, if everyone does that, then there seems to be no actual safer place on a door that no one ever touches.

I've seen these at some bars as well, which is probably one of the worst offenders for 'grossest bathroom potential' at the end of the night....

I turn around and push the door open with my rear end and go out ass-backwards.

Let’s be honest...people too lazy to wash their hands aren’t going out of their way to not push/pull anywhere other than the typical spot. At least you are sharing the same spot on the door with other hand washers.

I’m watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with my 4-year-old son and he has no idea what a commercial is. He keeps scolding me for turning the parade off every 10 minutes.

This is hilarious and so true. My 19 month old likes to watch and listen to the kids songs on Netflix... the other day there was some show on and she threw me the remote when a commercial came on and was saying, 'oh no, oh no'.

I think she watches too much at grandmas during the week. Ha.

My workplace put them in after sending most of us home at the height of the first wave (~May/June). It takes a bit of coordination to balance and open the door with your foot. I'm surprised no one had hurt themselves yet.

At a bar, I'd be stunned people could manage it. [laughing]
