Back in January, I wrote this:
On the buses around here, there is a freebie newspaper Ã¢â‚¬Å“MetroÃ¢â‚¬Â. Mildly diverting for a short journey which I guess is the aim of it in some ways, but wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t it be oh-so-easy to load it with germs / bugs and then let it do itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s deadly mission all day long ? Fact is, everyone on YOUR bus could be totally healthy yet that newspaper acts as the agent of transmission between busloads does it not ? Okay, so other surfaces do as well, but not as many are touched so much and can guarantee hand to face / other skin type contact. Death by newspaper Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦. conspiracy theory – you could wipe out a town with some strategic reading material (heh, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d have to use comics in some towns :) )
Wonder if they will stop that freebie …….
