Everyone is on high alert about protecting themselves this flu season. But one viral Facebook post makes the case that even cleaning your hands comes with disease risks.

On January 30, Nichole Ward sharing a message about an experiment she conducted in a public restroom. “Okay guys...ready to have your mind blown?!” she wrote next to an image of a bacteria-filled Petri dish.

“I stuck the open plate in an enclosed hand dryer of a public bathroom for a total of 3 minutes. Yes 3 only,” she continued, explaining that this is how long it took for the scary-looking blobs in the Petri dish to grow. “DO NOT EVER dry your hands in those things again.” Ward ended with the hashtags #nomorehanddryers and #outlaw.

This Coffee Pouring Puzzle Has Baffled the Internet. Can You Solve It?

  This Coffee Pouring Puzzle Has Baffled the Internet. Can You Solve It? Attention, brainteaser buffs! The Internet has once again bestowed another brain-blasting puzzle upon us, and this time it will really test your eye for detail. (Better yet, these brain exercises will help you get smarter.) Here’s the riddle: The photograph shows a hand pouring coffee into a set of chutes that each lead to one of four cups. Your goal is to determine which cup will be the first to be filled with coffee.While that might seem simple task at first, it has left thousands of people scratching their heads. As a matter of fact, the tweet has gone viral since it was posted, collecting nearly 2,000 retweets and over 4,000 likes.

Later, she mentioned Dyson, which has hand dryer models that are enclosed - although she later removed the reference after the post went viral around the world. The dryers she previously referenced, however, see the user stick his or her hands in through the top

And while she made sure to say that her post was “simply for awareness, not to instill fear,” that didn’t stop nearly 150,000 Facebook users from reacting and over 500,000 from sharing Ward's message that public-restroom dryers are germ vectors spewing potentially harmful microbes on your hands.

Yet some officials expressed doubt about the validity of the results. In a statement to ABC Action News, a spokesperson from hand-dryer company Dyson defended the dryers.

“We’re very surprised to see these results, and unclear on the methodology employed,” a spokesperson stated. “All Dyson Airblade hand dryers have HEPA filters that capture particles as small as bacteria from the washroom air before it leaves the machine. Dyson Airblade hand dryers are proven hygienic by university research and are trusted by hospitals, food manufacturers and businesses worldwide.”

This family’s Photoshop fail is straight out of a horror movie, and the internet can’t stop laughing

  This family’s Photoshop fail is straight out of a horror movie, and the internet can’t stop laughing The first family photos you take together hold a special place in your heart. For the Zarings, a blended family living in…Typically, Photoshop jobs fall into one of two categories: hilarious or terrifying. Donald Trump’s water bottle fiasco turned Photoshop joke? Hilarious. The Photoshop fail on Bella Thorne’s movie poster? Terrifying. The Zarings’ family photos capture that unique combination of sidesplittingly funny and scary. Which also pretty much describes every family we’ve ever known (including our own). That’s why when mom Pam Zaring took to Facebook to share retouched images of her family’s photo shoot, users could definitely relate.

Gazelle.

This here, Is what grew in a Petri dish after just a few days. I stuck the open plate in an enclosed hand dryer of a public bathroom for a total of 3 minutes. While Nichole aimed to "instill awareness," not fear with her experiment, the photo went viral quickly. It sent Facebook users into panic.

The hand dryer-hygiene debate has been the subject of studies. In 2016, a study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology compared how paper towels, standards dryers, and jet dryers disperse viral particles. The study determined that jet dryers (similar to the kind in Ward's post) were the “worst culprits,” according to Fortune. In a test, the jet dryer spread up to 190 times viral particles than the other two methods.

While science keeps looking into it, keep washing your hands to cut down on flu transmission odds, and make sure they're totally dry, since bugs tend to thrive in moisture.

Here's what doctors have said about the new trend.The condom challenge (which is not to be confused with a different challenge of the same name, from 2015, in which teens would fill condoms with water and drop them on their friends' heads) is not a new concept.
