Yup. 69% of men and 40% of women. Some of the filthiest most germ ridden things known to man are keyboards, restaurant menus, money, shopping cart handles, elevator buttons, ATMs.

According to a study, we humans touch our face around 24 times per hour and roughly half those touches are eyes/nose/mouth. Yay germs. Nom nom.

Meanwhile, people are buying up N95 masks, which is ridiculous because they are single use. The first time they are lifted or removed, they’re done. Expired. No good anymore.

So we’re wearing masks thinking it’s helping, but not washing our hands when we we use the bathroom, much less touch keyboards, money, etc — which is what actually helps. *sigh*
