But none of them have, probably because we all have immune systems - that's what they're there for. If I was worried about it, then I'd walk around in a plastic bubble.

    This is SO true. I work at a daycare and the kids whose parents are always sanitizing everything and freaking out about germs are ALWAYS the ones who are sick all the time. If kids aren't exposed to the germs and stuff and ya, live in a plastic bubble, then they wont develop a proper immune system. Can't live your life worrying about every little thing... have fun! Swim!

    Completely agreed. I Touch elevator buttons and door handles. I get lemon in my water at resturants. I swim in public pools. Do i ever think before I do any of these things... hey look i'm getting into water that is completely disgusting and filled with other people's germs? or Hey i'm touching a hand rail or squeezing a lemon into my water that has hundreds of thousands of germs on it? No. Has it ever hurt me to not think about it? nope. I think in most cases, we've had enough exposure to germs that these things don't bother us. Besides... who would skip swimming in Storm Along Bay because of some germs? NOT MEEEEEE!!!!!

To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

    I just consider it building up my immunity! Along this topic of conversation....I was in a department store last night and the woman in front of me in line sneezed into her hand, right as she was reaching for the pen on the credit card signature pad. When it was my turn, I was torn on how to proceed......use my Disney Rewards Visa or pay cash. I decided to risk it and go for the bonus points, lol.

    Exactly. You can be careful and wash your hands... I'm not saying be a slob. But worrying much too often stops you from living your life and taking chances.
