Little Box and Plasma Gas Bring OCD Into The 21st Century

New technology is being developed which uses plasma gas to disinfect your hands in about four seconds, just by sticking them in this  little black box.  The plasma gas is the same gas used in neon signs, fluorescent tubes and TV displays, although this stuff is at room temperature and pressure, and is engineered to kill germs. It can even cure athlete’s foot through your fungi-infected sock after an exposure of about 25 seconds.

All this sounds great, but there’s something to be said for soap and water. If, God forbid, your hand should ever come in contact with a turd, soap and water will wash the poo away and leave your hands with a fresh scent; something that can’t be said for Plasma Gas.
