Has anyone mentioned the show "The Toothbrush Family"? I believe it was shown on TVO (it was also shown as part of Captain Kangaroo). It was a
short (3-5 minutes) cartoon featuring the adventures of some toothbrushes and other bathroom paraphenalia. The characters included Flash Flouride,
Hot Rod Harry, Bert Brush, Cecily Comb, Neb Nailbrush, and of course, everyone's favourite, Susie Sponge. Each episode featured their adventures
after the human family had gone to bed; and they all had to rush back before morning to be back in place in the bathroom. They ended each episode
by singing the "Toothbrush Song": (song to the tune of 3 Blind Mice)--Brush your teeth, brush your teeth, round and round, circle and square...."
PLEASE don't get this confused with an "updated" version of the TTF which was released on video (1997?) with updated animation of the characters.
TRIVIA: Voices were done byLen Carlson (Bert Racoon) and Billie Mae Richards (Tenderheart Bear/ Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer).
I was sort of right.


*edit* That's the one Aar.

OMG - FALL RESURGENCE! That is so beautifully ominous.

I should ask on the Wolfram Alpha, but why is it that flu viruses dislike the summer?

Because we're inside more, sneezing and coughing all over each other.

You needn't ask Wolfram when you've got the Bubble Boy.

Initially, I was rather worried even though the flu was nowhere near my country because I study immunology as a module and I was being taught about how effective flu is when spreading.

However, after looking at the situation, it looks as though swine flu is just a upgraded version of the normal flu. People CAN survive swine flu and it's not as fatal as some other diseases. Just remember to always take care of yourself and pay attention to personal hygiene.

Learn in my medical microbiology lesson today.. The fatality rate of the swine flu is about the same of the seasonal flu for a year which is <1%. About 7000 - 8000 people diagnosed so far, about 70 to 80 has been killed by the virus. Death is still possible but not as serious as first thought.

I've heard quite a bit lately about the bacteria levels in reusable, "environmentally friendly" bags. Y'know, since places like Zehr's sought to save money by slyly charging for their stupid bags under the guise of being environmentally responsible (screw you, Galen Jr.) and the City of Toronto and all of their stupid recycling, organics, composting bullshit, more and more people are turning to these bags - where they place their leaky packages of raw chicken and ground beef without maintaining them with a thorough washing. When I see people haul them out in the checkout line, I cringe at the thought of what's growing in there. I still use plastic bags. I'll gladly pay the 5 cents per and play along. Not much of a surprise since I rarely recycle and never use that disgusting green bin. Here's an article from a while back...

The plastic bags eliminated to what end? And what shit do you think I'm falling for? I don't trust people - and for good reason - to wash their bags and I know for a fact that most don't and most certainly not at 140 C and that doesn't end the story. What does my underwear have to do with this? If I used the bags, I'd wash them - though I suspect most wouldn't last a couple washes. People get sick and they call it a "stomach flu" when most of the time, it's food poisoning from being careless with regards to things like this, proper food handling and hygiene. Are you saying that Guelph Chemical Labs is in cahoots with the 'anti-environmentalist' set? My point was, there's bacteria and it's nasty. The end.

I suppose you put your groceries in the super duper clean shopping carts and don't bat an eyelash or cringe when the cahiers handles your food and money without cleaning their hands.

I don't use a cart and utilize the self checkout. Besides, unbeknownst, they do clean the carts, the belts (even at lowly Price Chopper) and I've had conversations with a few cashiers and they do use hand sanitizer regularly.
