Default Wash your cans!!!!

A woman went boating one Sunday taking with her some cans of coke
which she put into the refrigerator of the boat. On Monday she was
taken to the hospital and placed in the Intensive Care Unit. She died

on Wednesday.

The autopsy concluded she died of Leptospirosis. This was traced to
the can of coke she drank from, not using a glass. Tests showed that
the can was infected by dried rat urine and hence the disease Lept

ospirosis.

Rat urine contains toxic and deathly substances. It is highly
recommended to thoroughly wash the upper part of soda cans before
drinking out of them. The cans are typically stocked in warehouses and


transported straight to the shops without being cleaned.


&g t; A study at NYCU showed that t he tops of soda cans are more
contaminated
than public toilets (i.e).. full of germs and bacteria. So wash them
with


water before putting them to the mouth to avoid any kind of fatal
accident.


Kinda gross eh.

I went to the store and licked every can I could find just to test this theory.


Cans, jugs, melons, I don't discriminate. I licked em all!

What about if an employee pissed all over your cans or under the bottle cap? Would you drink it?

It never said anything about rats pissing inside the pop cans only on them...so how is it any different? Both are sealed.

Isn't there websites for this kinda thing? "Pissing all over your cans"

:tonka:

I don't think this is one of those websites though. Although, I did piss all over Sol Goode's leg the other day!

if you drink from a can, generally speaking your mouth is coming into direct contact with the top of the can, which is not really sanitary generally speaking.

I don't know many people that lick the top of a bottle cap... but I suppose they exist.

Wow I didn't know rats had that kinda aim to hit only the top of a bottle cap and not run down the sides where your lips touch...forgive me.
