Dettol, No Touch Hand Wash… WTF???

In Random on April 4, 2011 by Lujayn Ali Tagged: , , ,

As you may have already heard, Dettol proclaims to have invented the amazing hand wash system that comes with its own fancy name and- get this- helps stop the spread of bacteria. It works amazingly simply: You go to wash your dirty hands and instead of touching the dispenser (which has bacteria on it), there’s a sensor that spits out the soap straight into your hands whereby you proceed to wash your hands as normal getting rid of the muck that was on it already. Fantastic right?

Well yes apart from one teeny tiny fundamental flaw: Who the hell touches the soap dispenser after washing their hands? Surely just the act of washing the hands stops the spread of bacteria?

In fact it looks like Dettol has now realised this amazing cock up and is marketing it as “Helps stop the spread of bacteria, even as its dispensed.”

Seriously, I’m not making this up: http://www.dettol.co.uk/products-for-your-home-kitchen-healthy-touch-no-touch-hand-soap-system.

So unless there is some complex psychological mechanism that connects having a fancy dispenser with washing your hands more often and thereby ‘stops the spread of bacteria’ this is a perfect example of a product that has missed the mark. Badly. Don’t buy it!

Speeding

In Random on April 2, 2011 by Lujayn Ali Tagged: , ,

An old woman gets pulled over for speeding…

Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Traffic Cop: Yes ma’am, I’m afraid you were speeding.

Woman: Oh, I see.
Traffic Cop: Can I see your license please?

Older Woman: Well, I would give it to you but I don’t have one.

Traffic Cop: Don’t have one?

Woman: No. I lost it 4 years ago for drunk driving.

Traffic Cop: I see…Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.

Woman: I can’t do that.

Traffic Cop: Why not?

Woman: I stole this car.

Traffic Cop: Stole it?

Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.

Traffic Cop: You what!?
Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see

The traffic cop looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car while calling for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.

Officer 2: Ma’am, could you step out of your vehicle please!

The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Woman: Is there a problem sir?

Officer 2: My colleague here tells me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.

Older Woman: Murdered the owner? Are you serious?!

Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer 2: Is this your car, ma’am?

Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers.

The traffic cop is quite stunned.

Officer 2: My colleague claims that you do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.

The officer examines the license quizzically.

Officer 2: Thank you ma’am, but I am puzzled, as I was told by my officer here that you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner!

Woman: Bet the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too.

Polishing

In Random on February 25, 2011 by Lujayn Ali Tagged: ,

Was going to post a snippet from my nanowrimo story on here, but can’t find anything that’s polished enough to the point I’d be happy posting it. So the next task on my list after finishing writing the story is to polish, polish and polish some more. But first I’m going to catch a few zzz’s.
