no ice because there is bacteria in it? where do you think they get the water to mix with the soda syrup? same place as where they get water for the ice...

I don't think it's the water itself. I think it's the ice machine that has the bacteria in it.

I don't think this really means that ice cubes are dangerously dirty, it just means that toilet bowls are cleaner than you think. I think I remember seeing some show on the Discovery Channel where they found that doorknobs are actually dirtier than toilet bowls. It's no reason to go all paranoid.

Anyway, I don't take ice cubes in my drink simply because it's a ripoff seeing as they take up so much volume. And the drinks are cold enough anyway.

I was watching Mythbusters the other day, and they tested different areas around the shop for cleanliness. The cleanest place was ON the toilet seat. It had like 23 colonies of bacteria, as opposed to 100-200 in the other places.

If i was a germ, i wouldnt wanna b hangin around where someones nasty crap covered behinds had been, would you?

hey how do u get wat somebody else said in italics?
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 2/22/06 - 5:57:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha! Are you kidding? Crap-covered behinds are prime realty when you're a germ.

her methodology is all screwed up. She flushed the toilets and then collected her samples. Thus, the samples she collected may be reduced in bacteria number because the water hasn't been sitting in the toilet for a long time to be influenced by its environment.

I'm crying foul on this one. Don't think toilets are cleaner than ice cubes.

yeah I heard about this..oh well we're all sqirming in bacteria anyways

Gross!

Took this long to find that? It was on the news about three weeks ago. Also, just because it's bacteria, doesn't mean that it is harmful. It could have been better. It didn't surprise me that she was only in 7th grade (The same year I am), seeing that in Florida the 7th grade is studying Life Science. It would only be natural for her to do someting that she could base information off the book.

Interesting. (To the person who can't say hypothesis, neither can I. I say 'hipofetis' Yes, I have a bad lisp)

Also, if people are pissing all over the place it actually kill's the bacteria. urine is a natural disinfectent with it's high acidic acid.

now you want gross...take any area of your body and you'll probably find more life liveing on it then anywhere else....we are ecosystems

I meant " high acidic content" acidic acid is redundent

rosie5139, at least you get money, all I get is this little ribbon for participating.

That wasn't suprising.

Hydro Dioxide is a very harmful subtance. The smallest amount in your lungs can cause suffication and it is widely known for a vessel of millions of harmful elements, bacteria, and even deadly toxins.

Hydro (H) Di (2) Oxide (0)
Is also just a scary term for something completely normal. Just because it's 'bacteria' doesn't mean you'll get crotch rot from it.

13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 2/22/06 - 11:29:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
*should be Hydrogen Dioxide.

Been a while since I've referred to that.

The container the ice is held in is an issue too. People may not clean it out like they should, or clean the pales they use to move the ice to the machines.

Anyway~ I dont like ice in my drink, hurts me teeth, jips me soda, waters down the drink when it melts, yeah. Not like soda is good for you anyway, diet or not.
