The fact that soap kills bacteria is largely irrelevant. Soap's mode of action, as for any other detergent, is to remove the impurities from the surface. Whether the said impurities are dead or alive makes no difference to the persons washing their hands as long as their are washed away. What is relevant is that the wide use anti-bactericidal additives has two unintended consequences:
1. Creates resistance, which will become a problem in cases were you don't have the option to wash a surface but have to rely on killing the buggers.
2. Creates false sense of security, because they kill only live bacteria. These compounds will have absolutely no effect on spores. This is probably more relevant to the hand sanitizers which have become exceedingly popular.
I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.
Now here is the scary part: Dr Strangelove is still as relevant as it was when it was made. You would think by now it would just be funny, and not scarily funny.
Good idea, but isn't Best Buy and other retailers complaining about the "showroom effect?" How's that going to work when car dealers are just giant test drive outlets?
They also get payed for servicing the sold vehicles (my local dealership for the brand I drive has excellent service department and absolutely disgusting sales people). The current practice where the dealers are incentivized to gouge the client on the sales price, useless options and on financing, is cutting into the potential profits for the manufacturers and is doing horrible damage to their brands. I am surprised that the car makers together with online merchants have not pushed harder at the dealers. I hope that Tesla will succeed in braking the current sales model.
Noting that beer is safer than contaminated water, Bodzianowski note that beer could be useful “in future civilization as an emergency backup hydration and medical source."
Yeah, nothing is safer in a confined zero-G environment full of electronics, than a liquid electrolyte pressurized with toxic gas. Don't believe me? Here, have a beer and we can go ever the details.
