Maybe Sheldon was right...

A new study from Ohio State University published in the American Journal of Infection Control sought to determine whether buses are contaminated with MRSA. Forty buses in a midwestern city were sampled. MRSA was detected in over 60% of the buses, with seats (33%) and seat rails (30%) the most common sites of contamination.

Those of you who are fans of the Big Bang Theory know that Sheldon Cooper, PhD, ScD, a genius theoretical physicist who has never learned to drive, wears bus pants when using public transportation. In the video clip below, Sheldon explains the concept.

Maybe we should have public reporting of contaminated buses. Because no American should have to wear bus pants, ever. Bazinga!
