    I always go for paper towel. If there's no paper towel then I'll let my hand dry by itself. I don't know why but im scared of jet air dryer due to the sudden air blown and loud sound and sudden hot air. Im also scare of hair dryer. Anything with hot air they just make my heart beat fast.

    Hahaha I love the study about men taking longer to get a urine stream going when someone is closer to them.
    It's really shitty if you have an extreme case of this. I frequently have to ask doctors whether I may bring my sample to them later because I just can't go if I know that they're just sitting by their desk waiting for me to be done.

    Well... of course women use more toilet paper. I wouldn't call that waste but cleanliness.
    And I really, really hope that they compared ALL toilet visits.
    Otherwise, I'm even more disgusted with men than I am already...

    I'm still skeptical about using toilet paper or tissue to dry hands, because there may be bacteria / viruses sitting there.

    Well females wipe their asses even if we didn’t poop. We clean everything. We gotta be safe ya know. Like even if you take some toilet paper and rip it in half just to wipe both. I mean I’d rather make sure everything is wiped before I got up.
