    “你的手有多脏,你的手机就有多脏。” 这是说其实手机无过错,是我们自己很脏吗?哈

    据说手机上的细菌量是厕所马桶的十几倍。

    many people hiding themselves in the bathroom and watching movies from their cell phones when sitting on a toilet. that's the best way to snatch leisure and pass the day.  and many just talking on their phones while sitting on the toilets too. ewww.  i guess the bacterias go streight to their mouth sliding off their cheeks. so here is the problem in front of us. being a extremely Hygienic protection of our own bodies, or living in an anti-bacteria purified environment?

    neigher is the way i'll choose to live my own life.
