    Apparently when you flush the toilet, tiny poop particles fly everywhere, and can definitely land on your toothbrush.

    Austrian researchers discovered the following after analyzing water in holy springs and fonts in Vienna: "...86 percent of water samples from holy sources contain fecal matter, and every milliliter of holy water contained up to 62 million bacteria, none of it safe to drink." Holy shit, right?

    For those who can sometimes get a bit lazy with their hygiene, your computer keyboard can become a hotbed for bacteria and poop bits — and might even contain more germs than a toilet. Do you also take your laptop into the bathroom? Forget it.

    Covered in pewp. It's true.

    You'll find traces of doodie anywhere lots of butts sit down, which includes movie theaters, plane seats, public transportation, park benches, and airport lounge seats.

    Kind of goes hand-in-hand with the cellphone dilemma. If you've got poop on your phone, you've probably got poop on your face.

    10. Money.

    11. Tanning beds.

    12. Soda fountains.

    13. Pretty much everything on an airplane.
