The .1% Of Germs That Can’t Be Killed

We all know the claims. “Kills 99.9%* Of Germs, GUARANTEED!” or words to that effect. Even though I’ve never really studied the fine print that the asterisk denotes, I have wondered how anyone arrived at that figure. Common sense would lead one to believe that this figure is erroneous.

Are there a finite number of kinds of germs? Well, no, I don’t think so. We discover new stuff all the time, why should germs be any different? Kind of makes me wonder if old antibacterial formulas’ claims need to get adjusted for inflation over time.

Also, is it very reassuring 99.9% of germs can be killed? I guess it is to some extent, but what happens if you get sick anyway? “Auch, I feel terrible. It must have been from the .1% of germs on the kitchen counter that I touched after cleaning it, and not from the toilet that I’ve refused to clean in three weeks.”

So, when you’re out walking the mean streets of Germtown, just remember: Even though the billboards tell you it’s safe, stay away from the dark alleys anyway. And don’t eat the melted chocolate that you found on the sidewalk.

    Actually, germs can help us as well. They could fight diseases, sickness, or simply boost up our immune system by .1% (:D).

    They claim to get rid of 99.9*% of germs, but to be true, it’s more like 89.9*%..
