Silly questions from the apprentice(s)

Is it true that the couch in the break room is germ-infested? I believe I heard the word "cooties" used to describe it.

If so, how does one protect oneself if one needs to take a nap on it?

yes it is true. once Felipe took a nap on it and he woke up with some sort of boil on his neck near his ear where his head had been resting on the couch. anytime i lay on it i bring a couple bedsheets and towels along and line the couch with them.

i would recommend napping on the floor. it is more sanitary.

yes but the floor is very hard and you get some sort of draft when you sleep floor level...you have to ask for the executive space heater when sleeping on the floor. I prefer sleeping on the music or promotion director's desk. They have more crap on their desk than min thus it is more padded plus I get all the envelopes with the bubble rap in then and mare my self a nice envelope mattress and pillow.
This is how you survive being a real programmer at the station...fucking neophyte!(JK)

Why doesn't someone just bring in a can of lysol and a paper towel?

I just don't worry about the couch. I mean, all WCSB members hold themselves to a high standard of hygiene and wash themselves at least once every other day. Right?

lysol and a paper towel may have worked about 20 years ago...unfortunately something MUCH stronger (and probably as yet uninvented) would be the only solution at this point!

Perhaps a weekly dose of harsh and very loud feedback would vibrationally sanitize the entire room? Has this been attempted?

I think WCSB should buy a new couch after the next Radiothon. ;-)

Maybe the station could work out a deal with Norton Furniture, because if you can't get credit there, you can't get credit anywhere. Or maybe you can get some bench seats out of an old car at the Pearl Road salvage place.

I vote for cots. They are totally underrated.

we should get those old skool bed mats that we use to have when we wuz lil' and have us some nap time. I think there should be a state law along with the minimum of a half hour lunch that there should be a mandatory nap time included with lunch.

my friend Audra and i always got in trouble for talking during naptime and we'd have go to sit at our desks while everyone else took naps.

Old people rubbed our backs when we took naps. That was kind of weird.

um...did you go to school at a rest home for old decrepit perverts? or do you mean more like old ladies who never had grandchildren and so they used you guys as surrogates?

either way...

I think having old people rub your back is quite practical and healthy...their fingers are already coated with Ben gay and arthritis cream.

my board is more comforting than the shoulder of a woman when you have layover in chicago.

Yo

I saw the cooties with my own eyes.

Looked like small snowflakes that never melt.

Some call them "dandruff".

uhhhhhh

Okay, so I'll be clinical. Tiny snowflakes that don't melt are caused by a fungus and are contagious. This condition is treatable by special shampoos. I can't be certain of this, but it's highly unlikely that the couch cushions themselves contain the special shampoo, so most likely rubbing one's head on them will not cure the dandruff condition, if that's what someone is thinking. Lots of people have the "D", it's not something to be ashamed of, but cootie-fying the couch, well.... that seems to be a matter of ethics, perhaps? Any philosophy majors on here?

I apologize if I have offended anyone. Particularly if I offended the gnome. They're some sort of elemental and shouldn't be messed with. If The Gnome is the cause of the cooties, best to pretend like the tiny snowflakes don't exist.

The couch...Yeah, I've taken many naps on it, but so has Lapone. You take your chances, much like unprotected sex. You may want to bring a sheet, but if you don't, only blame yourself. At least you can use the headphones again, since Russ left. Ugghh!! Talk about filthy! If Lysol is there, it's only because somebody was being selfish and wanted to rid of "special" odors. However, that is unlikely.

for the record i dont think dandruff is fungus..i think its just dry skin....am i wrong?
Re: Silly questions from the apprentice(s)

Maybe we should get a retro 70s style vinyl couch. Then it actually could be wiped down with disinfectant, effectively.

Another question: how on earth did that couch get into the station in the first place? Were the walls built around it? It would probably have to be dismantled and taken out in pieces.
