Did you lads know that you're meant to rub your hands together when drying them instead of just holding them out stationary? Talk about a game changer!

Don't ever use those things. I can't think of a worse idea than keeping a warm, dry box in a public toilet that blows its air at you. You might as well call it a self sustaining biological weapon.

I can. Having a warm moist box in a public bathroom that doesn't blow air.

Both of those are qualities which discourage the majority of harmful bacteria from thriving. Besides that, if people are drying their hands, it implies they have washed them first. Being in a bathroom is really neither here nor there. Urine is (in healthy people) sterile, your genitalia are only lightly colonised with skin flora. In my job, as a microbiologist, it's more important that I wash my hands before I go for a piss than after.

Fecal contamination from flush aerosolisation would be the only thing there is to really worry about, but even that's not really concerning unless someone's had the shits. Most public bathrooms get cleaned far more regularly than a home bathroom.

People today are honestly far more germaphobic than is at all necessary.

It's not the first time I've heard someone complain about them in almost the exact same way, I think it's one of those urban legends for the chronically thoughtless. As though people are going around rubbing their unwashed hands directly on the fan element or something.

They might have taught you that at school but science has since proven otherwise. Or so science journalism leads me to believe. You say you're a microbiologist?

Not him but I believe that urine is sterile until it leaves the body. As it leaves the body it will pick up bacteria from the end of your knob.

Well, in reality it's not that simple, but for all intents and purposes it's sterile, yes. It's sterile enough that if you can actually grow something from it, that's a solid clinical indication of an infection. Most of the non-indicative organisms you'll get growing on a urine culture are like I said, skin flora.

Well done, you linked to a couple of studies. Would you care to explain to the rest of the class why you think they contradict what I said?

I linked to a blog post that contains in the second real paragraph the text "urine is not sterile, even before it comes out of you". This blog post cites its source. Do you require further exposition on why that contradicts the claim "urine is sterile until it leaves the body" or are you good to take it from here?

It's getting more and more clear there's one or two lads on here who browse reddit and repost stuff here.

Reddit is an aggregate of popular articles so I'm not that surprised some of the same stuff comes up here.

The owners of Reddit also have a large shareholding in Huel.

Doesn't matter if your hands are pristine after the wash up, you still need to tackle the pull to open door.

I think the point that >>433543 is trying to make, correct me if I'm wrong, is that, if urine is sterile with the exception of skin flora, then dipping your hand in a bucket of piss is no more dangerous than scratching your armpit or shaking hands with someone sweaty.
