You're right on that. I'm not worried about pee or pooh bacteria getting into my food, it doesn't kill me and I don't notice it / taste it. Ever
ate from a street vendor in a third world country? There's absolutely nothing sanitary about that. The food is outside with insane pollution that you
can't even find in LA, the food itself is made in not-well-cleaned pots and pans, utensils and god knows just how long it has been sitting in the
back of a roach / rat infested home, maybe days? But it still tastes good and you try not to think about those things because quite honestly if it
doesn't harm you, it shouldn't matter.
Toilet water is the same as tap water, and a toilet seat is cleaner than your lips that you lick. You use your cellphone but yet it's covered in
millions of different types of bacteria, but really how well do you taste bacteria? Does bacteria kill you? Maybe in some rare instances, but for the
most part you just get sick with a weak immune system and don't get affected with a strong one.
Is it really that big of a deal that ice cubes -may- contain more traces of poop than toilet water? Yes, if it's at Taco bell then absolutely yes.
But for the most part it's by microns of a percent of an ice cube. Your soda can that you don't wash before drinking from a vending machine has more
of a chance to have rat or roach feces than ice cubes.
What is pretty bad though, is having a frosty or a chocolate milk at a buffet or fast food joint. Yeah, the inside of those things are fowl and nasty.
Sure, it tastes ridiculously good but the diarrhea that you're almost guaranteed to get from the buffets may not be worth it.
But at the end of the day, you have a choice between bringing your own drink or not drinking there at all. Capitalism doesn't work well with strict
government regulations, it works well when the people make their own choices in the matter. When you have all of these regulations, the customer in
the end gets screwed. Don't wash your hands all the time, drink from that soda can without washing it, and don't worry so much about bacteria as you
might right now. Bacteria helps you stay strong for the most part and salmonella isn't as bad as what some people make it seem. Almost impossible to
get it but when you get it you just feel sick for 2-days and it's not even that painful. There are risks for certain individuals but those
individuals should already be aware of their system's limitations.
ENJOY LIFE is what I'm saying. Don't worry about everything, just f'ing drink the soda if that's what you crave and savor the feeling. If you get
diarrhea, you get diarrhea. You had it before dozens of times and you survived. =)
