    Thank you for sharing that very informative post. Evidence that toilet water is bad for you is always good.

    Ugh. What's even worse is when you puke directly into the toilet and flush right afterwards while your face is still inside the bowl. I've done that more than 6 times in my life by now.

    Eldee - on vacation I keep my toothbrush next to the bed I sleep on. Yay us!

    A few years ago 20/20 on ABC did a story on water found at the dentist. Most of the time the water they use to rinse out your mouth is the backwash from the patient before you. Sometimes the water contains as much bacteria as toilet water over time.

    I remember once (figuratively) in my wild college days throwing up at a boyfriends house and then having to throw up again because I realized I was throwing up in a guys toilet.. oh the vicious cycle it started!

    I wouldn't have gotten close to my husband's toilet when I met him in college! I would have yacked too.

    That's why I have have a fear of using public restrooms. You never know what happened earlier in the day. Someone might have missed the bowl completely and crapped on the seat (and believe me I've seen it happen more than once). Fear the men's restroom.

    Give me a new toothbrush! and yes. That was one of my favorite episodes, next the one where everyone's at a wedding ceremony and time goes backwards.

    Senrik - yeah the ferry restrooms are awful. Been there and hopefully not again.

    Ok one friend of mine claimed I had OCD 2 years ago b/c he saw me running to the restroom between classes and washing my hands vigorously for a week. I'm not sure what was wrong with me but I researched OCD later on for a biology project. It was a messed up year.
