She's probably a science major.

Girl #1: Dammit, the hand dryer isn't working.
Girl #2: You know what? It's actually more unsanitary if you use those. They just pick the dirty air up off the floor and recycle it on your hands.

"A full 100% of the samples taken from air inlets and 97% from nozzles contained potentially harmful bacteria."
from the Lee County Health Department (

i've heard several news stories on CTV and what not that say hand dryers are quite unsanitary, and if you do a simple google search you come up with tons of articles about it.

The "picks the air up off the floor" got a giggle.

The argument against hand dryers got a chuckle.

...These data demonstrate no statistically significant differences in the efficiency of 4 different hand-drying methods for removing bacteria from washed hands....
