I can think of a lot of things that the public continuously touches and then passes on... Money, staircase rails, and grocery carts all come to mind, and I realize they are full of germs, but public library books may be the worst! Why you ask? Well it seems as though there is a book, Fifty Shades Of Grey, that gets people all hot and bothered and thus they end up touching their private parts, then the book, then return the book to the library, and also pass on their S.T.D.'s! 

After performing toxicology and bacteriology screenings on the ten most checked-out books in an Antwerp library, two Belgian professors discovered cocaine among the pages of all ten of the books. But that is not all they found...

Fifty Shades Of Grey by E.L. James also tested positive for herpes virus!

Now I am not sure if you can catch herpes off of a book or not, but at least for me personally, not willing to take that chance. Therefore I will just wait for the movie to come out to see what the whole craze is about... Actually, I was never going to read the book, it's way too long, and some of the things that I have heard go on inside those covers quite honestly scare the sh** out of me!
