Re: Germ Culture
just so you know that i use the information i gather from this forum in every day life: i was having lunch with brother & sil this afternoon. sil didn't finish all her soup and asked if i wanted to finish it. at first i gave my usual wise-ass response in my best oliver twist, "mmmmm, backwash soup. please sir, may i have some more." but sil got offended (it's been like 15 years, she really ought to know me by now) and said, "but your brother would eat it."
quickly referencing the early retirement forum i told sil how their bodies are used to sharing bacteria but it would be bad for my system. she seemed satisfied with that. of course i still prefer the "ewwwww, backwash!" response.
