In say, a normal size bedroom, if someone sneezes, even into a handkerchief, you're probably exposed within 5 seconds. There's that many germs and it's expelled at that high a velocity. Unless you have a really good seal around your nose, you ain't doing much. Think of the tests they did to find out where feces particles land in your bathroom- EVERYWHERE.

Yeah - let that be a lesson to all you weirdos who brush their teeth whilst evacuating their bowels.

Oh, I see what you mean - sorry. Wink

this was on animal planet the other day but sadly they didn't put korean subtitles Rolling Eyes

Why is it always the things that koreans most need to know that are deliberately left untranslated?
