    I will drive for miles with a dirty windshield to wait for the right time when no one is behind. Annoys the shit out of me when people do this.

    Also, I don't know if anyone works in a cubicle workplace like I do, but damn is it annoying when people are coughing.

    Don't get me wrong it's ok if you cough or sneeze it's natural, all of us do it several times a day.

    Even the occasional time when I walk up to your desk and you thought someone wouldn't be there for a few moments, so you let one go, and I can tell you clearly laid a fart to clear the room. I'm ok with that.

    But what is annoying is the nervous coughs, this person I work with, is constantly doing this "nice" "nervous" cough every fucken 3-5 seconds, of every day, of every hour, of every minute. I've been working with this person for about a year now and it just hit me about a month ago. He coughs as an "affect" it's not that he is clearing his throat because he has shit to clear out, he just does it.

    So fucking annoying.

    Doubt that. Your cock and balls are one of the dirtiest parts on your whole body. Even if you wash it millions times.

    My OCD thrives on irrational and arbitrary distinctions. I'm okay with it. At least I no longer have to immediately wash my hands after holding the handrail on public transportation.

    :cool:

    I shower every second day or so. I also work and live in the middle of nowhere so my interactions are with other socially retarded scientists and the locals who I think shower less than I do.

    I enforce the "no showers unless you have just exercised" rule to keep me active. It works pretty well.

    Me either...once every couple days or so. My hair turns awesome after about the third day and sometimes I don't wash my hair but wash my body instead. Go go hair oils.

    While there's a lot less bacteria per square inch found in bathrooms than on one's hands, phones, mouthes, and computers, the type of bacteria is important. Some types are rather harmless to us, but some, even in tiny amounts, are deadly. There's less bacteria on raw chicken than a human tongue, but you wouldn't put raw chicken in your mouth, would you?

    Dirt under the fingernails. Yuck! I ride the NYC subway so I spend a lot of time looking at the poles that people hold and the gunk that's underneath their nails is pretty terrible.

    Saliva from what I read kills a lot of germs, plus as long as the person your kissing has brushed there teeth your good to go.

    Also, to all those people who take a shower every other day, that's all well and good, but damn don't you like to smell good?

    I have to take a shower daily or I don't smell good all over. Plus it wakes me up in the morning, and I can't brush my hair and have it look good unless I shower. You people must have magical hair that doesn't get a cowlick.

    Don't you like to feel clean?

    I shower daily or I feel like a greasy, crusty, smelly bastard. You 'every other day' people stink. You're stinking up the world with your odours.

    The point is the type of bacteria matters. There's a shitload of species in human saliva, but they do a good job of killing bacteria and dissolving food. There's less on raw chicken, but ingesting them can kill you.

    Also, showering too often, like more than six or seven times a week can be bad for your skin. Getting rid of a necessary layer of oil on the skin can leave it dry and prone to infection just as much as leaving the skin too oily can trap microbes in pores and leave it prone to infection.

    I shower once a day, I've never until just now, heard that it could be bad for my skin. Personally my skin feels fine, unless in the winter months (aka right now) that's when my skin, and mainly my hands, get super dry. But lotion works like a charm! ;)

    Staying on topic here...

    I love when I can't continue working on my project at work until I get a question answered by my boss, but he is busy on the phone, and will usually be on for a few hours.

    I hate sitting around, it makes me antsy.

    Christians being stupid

    examples

    Christians who say "dinosaurs are a hoax" seriously, WTF?

    Christians who take the great commission so seriously that they fuck off their own schedules trying to convert me
    you fuck up my shcedule, i'm gonna be pissed, you fuck up your own schedule, i'm gonna laugh at you

    Christians who say that homosexuality is wrong only just simply because of Leviticus 18:22
    telling someone that the core-eccence of who they are is wrong is psychologically damaging

    Christians who try to turn gays/lesbians into straight people
    they're just wasting time and psychologically damaging people

    Christians who believe "carbon-dating is wrong" and that Leviathan and Behemoth in The Book Of Job were actually "dinosaurs interacting with humans"

    Christians who say incest is wrong just simply because Leviticus ch 18 forbids it, as opposed being inteligent enoough to know that inbreeding causes birth-defects

    Christians who actually think that "Noah's Flood" was "the thing that killed the dinosaurs"

    the "Young Earth Creationists" that totally ignore Hubble's Law and the "Metric Expansion of Space" and actually believe that the "universe" was "created" a mere 5-thousand and 7-hundred years ago

    the Christians that use Bible verses to justify mysogyny
