Geek-themed Meme of the Week: No. 8

Because you know some of them can be funny

Memes are everywhere. Most are not very good, but a few are funny, so I have started publishing what I consider to be the better ones once a week. Here is No. 8.


A commenter on Reddit weighs in:

"These 'environmentally friendly' dryers are actually really unhygienic. Bacteria will grow on anything and everything, including the inside of a hand dryer. They will just splay out and splatter on those freshly clean hands. You're better off just not even washing your hands if you're going use the bathroom hand dryers. Source: I'm a microbiologist."

Make of that what you will. I have no reason to doubt that the person is a microbiologist; in fact, if forced to bet, I would say it's true. However, it's worth noting that I found this comment on the Internet and, believe it or not, some people do fib about their credentials.

If you'd like more memes, here is the "Geek-themed Meme of the Week Archive".
