comforting, I guess.

You drink beer while using power tools? Brave girl. Maybe I will ask you out after all. I like a brave woman.

As a card-carrying Real Man, I don't use anything sissy like Q-tips to clean out my ears. I use a pen cap! It's simpler, and I don't have to get up from my desk and go to the medicine cabinet. Plus, it's more dangerous, so the illicit thrill is greater.

Whew. Glad I got that off my chest.

I used to use pen caps too. The good thing about Q Tips is that, since you always dispose of them after one use, you don't have to worry about absent mindely sticking them in your mouth later on.

is anyone aware of the eco-facts on q-tips? they are indestructible and will probably outlast humanity!

Q-tips and raw cookie dough...Sometimes you just gotta live on the edge!

I doubt the genuine Q-tips are all that eco-unfriendly. The fuzzy parts are made of 100% cotton & the stems are paper rolled up with some kind of glue. The fake ones on the other hand are another story entirely, starting with the plastic stems. There's also not as much fuzz on them, so if you see budget priced q-tips (generic for Q-tips) avoid them & report the seller to the EPA immediately.
Real Q-tips also have an explicit warning on the package: "Do not insert swab into ear canal. Entering the ear canal could cause injury. If used to clean ears, stroke swab gently around the outer surface of the ear only. Keep out of reach of children."
Good advice in general, I'd say.
If you don't believe me, you can go to http://www.qtips.com & request a free brochure, but make sure you recycle it after reading.

If people wouldn't make chocolate chip cookie dough by killing eggs, they wouldn't have to worry about salmonella.

According to the CDC, the problem appears to be raw eggs. Maybe that's why they call them cookies.
