Nothing can stop me now—except microscopic germs

This little article will get you washing your hands. Also your shower curtain. University of Colorado Boulder scientist Normal P. Pace identifies everyday situations in which we drag our hands through uncounted billions of little creatures. Time to freak out? Or time to celebrate our microbial brethren? Just don't mention [shudder] the escalator. Please.

Post title borrowed from "$pringfield" (The Simpsons, of course).

Giant Microbes found at Metafilter.
