Buggy Spit So we can safely swap spit with just about anybody? What about our leading lady from yesterday? The one with all those extra hugs to pass out.

Radioactive Pervert Come on! The guy's a teacher. He was, obviously just doing research. Anyhow, if he's hiding out in Ireland then it'll be the wee people lookin' after'em, for sure.

Aussies Again What? They run out of beer down there?

anti-US Protesters So much for Swiss precision.

"Researchers from Germany's venerable Max Planck Institute conclude that regardless of where on Earth you live, the range of bacteria in your spit shows pretty much the same variations."

Here's a flash, "regardless of where on Earth you live," you're a human being! I wonder if there's a correlation? 😉

What's in the gut is what the environment brings to us. What's in the mouth is what we bring to the environment.
