Why Don't We Do It In Our Sleeves?
"Why Don't We Do It In Our Sleeves?" on Google Video
Many diseases are spread by poor coughing and sneezing techniques. Most people put their hands in front of their mouths and noses to stop germs from getting into the air. Unfortunately, this technique puts the germs on their hands. The germs are then spread to telephones and doorknobs and many other surfaces from which they are then picked up by the next user. This is how colds spread quickly through schools and workplaces, and how the flu spreads quickly through entire cities. It would be very easy to cut this mode of infection drastically by simply getting people to cough and sneeze properly.

What if your cough or sneeze is productive? Then you spend the rest of the day with dried up lung or nose cookie on your sleeve.

Ew
Gross...

But at least they would be dead germs and not living germs... Maybe that's an upside...

Maybe not...

Interesting...

Do they just walk around with their sleeves rolled up? Or do you do it in the seconds just before the sneeze happens?

Well, it was warmer there, so not so many sleeves. But yeah, you roll them up quickly.

I know it sounds weird, but it was much more hygienic I'm sure.
