Kindergarten Science At Your Expense?

I certainly hope that tax dollars did not fund this ground-breaking scientific study, which discovered:
Men are dirtier than women. So scientists confirmed by spying in public restrooms, watching as one-quarter of men left without washing their hands.

The worst offenders were at an Atlanta Braves game.

In contrast, 90 percent of the women did wash up.

Wednesday's results mark the American Society of Microbiology's latest look at how many people take what is considered the single easiest step to staying healthy: spending 20 seconds rubbing with soap under the faucet.
I have the bad feeling that we did pay for this. If so, I resent it bitterly.

I am putting "scientific studies to determine what everyone already knows" on my Porkbusters list. Rumor has it that the official scientific writeup of the results goes something like "women are sugar and spice and everything nice while men are rats and snails and puppydog tails".

Uh huh- research at a Braves game. I wonder why they just didn't go down to the bus station. Hell, I wouldn't do anything requiring me to sit down or touch those faucets.
Personally I suspect they watched the Braves game, got drunk, and then polled each other about washing hands.

I guess I'm getting cynical in my old age.
