Ttc Will Kill You!

Syntax Error

i don't know if this is true but,

During Autumn of 2000, a team of scientists at the Department of Forensics at University of Toronto removed a row of passenger seats from the Bloor Line subway car for analysis into cleanliness.

Despite TTC's claim that the interior of their trains are cleaned on a regular basis, the scientists made some alarming discoveries.

The analysis was broken down. This is what was found on the
surface of the seats:

* 4 types of hair sample (human, mouse, rat, dog)
* 7 types of insect (mostly fleas, mostly alive)
* vomit originating from at least 9 separate people
* human urine originating from at least 4 separate people
* human excrement
* rodent excrement
* human semen

When the seats were taken apart, they found:

* the remains of 6 mice
* the remains of 2 large rats
* 1 previously unheard of fungus

It is estimated that by holding one of the arm-rests, you are
transferring, to your body, the natural oils and sweat from as many as 400 different people.

It is estimated that it is generally healthier to smoke five
cigarettes a day than to travel for one hour a day on the TTC.
It is far more hygienic to wipe your hand on the inside of a
recently flushed toilet bowl before eating, than to wipe your hand on a TTC seat before eating.
It is estimated that, within Toronto, more work sick-days are taken because of bugs picked up whilst traveling on the TTC than for any other reason (including alcohol).

any thoughts, comments?

I am never riding the TTC again. like EWWWWW. :eek:

also make sure you let 10 people on your hotmail address list know that Hotmail is having space shortage on their servers and they will be deleting accounts. But if you let 10 people know their super duper email tracking system will somehow know, and your account will not get deleted.

Exaggerated pap.

Things that are dirtier: doorknobs and money.

And when a toilet is flushed, a whole wack of urine and faeces become aerosolized, much like perfume from a sprayer, meaning you are breathing in shit and piss.

Incidentally, your body NEEDS a certain amount of "dirt" in order to stimulate the immune system properly. Studies have shown that kids who grow up in a clean (i.e. almost sterile) environment are much sicker as adults. Lesson: lick your toilet or a TTC seat, or money, or a doorknob at least once a week.

Why do you all make fun of me all the time I come here for advice on licking things on the subway and then you make fun and I cry you better not hope or pray or something that Im thinking not of you or whatever I cant write but try to read it and make sense of it anyway.

Did you know that hotels never wash the top quilt on their beds?

I saw on 20/20 theydid a study where they took a sample of hotel quilt and lab-tested it. They found every possible body fluid and solid in the sample.

It's true too. Ever since I saw that, I look at the underside of the sheets and I've seen blood stains and several anonymous stains...

And I never understood why the TTC uses "velvet" coverings on their seats... so much harder to clean!

In Hong Kong, they have stainless steel benches. Kinda slippy, but makes for a fun ride.
