There was a debate in the chat, stemming from Ryckert sanitizer habits, over whether overuse of sanitizer promoted the spread of disease. It does, though not primarily through promoting resistance:

a) A lot of sanitizers out there don't have the alcohol content necessary to do their job. As Abby mentioned, 60% or more is considered OK. Some stuff sold to the general public doesn't have that.

b) The big problem: people tend to substitute it inappropriately for hand-washing, relying on it to get rid of stuff it's not designed to eliminate. Important quote from the NYT piece: "Alcohol doesn't cut through grime well, so dirt, blood, feces or other body fluids or soil must be wiped or washed away first, if the alcohol in the sanitizer is to be effective. In such cases, hand washing with soap and water is advised."

There was a recent study indicating that some types of bacteria, at least, can become more tolerant of even the 60%+ alcohol stuff (though they still die, despite surviving for longer). Regardless of your opinion on the science regarding resistance, though, overrelying on hand sanitizers does promote disease in other ways. Don't skimp on washing your hands with soap and water.

That is...your HEALTH UPDATE.

Oh dear... I think Statue and Moon were the toughest levels to beat in this game, IIRC from my childhood.

@indigozeal: I was aware of some of this stuff but this makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the health update! Another positive development is the FDA finally concluding in 2017 that most anti-bacterial agents in sanitizers and soaps (such as Triclosan in Purell) weren't shown to be generally effective enough for inclusion in sanitizers and anti-septic products and again recommend hand-washing.

Beyond efficacy, the (kinda minor) issue with anti-bacterial ingredients used in the past and present is that they're common skin irritants when used frequently (but in a pinch they're fine).

Interestingly, after the 24 that got phased out, there are 6 ingredients that were requested for deferral by producers so currently they are still included in anti-septic solutions for medical and consumer use. Basically it's alcohols, iodine solutions, benzalkonium chloride, and chloroxylenol. I imagine this is why the focus has shifted to alcohol sanitizers (and soaps that include some of the other deferred ingredients). The FDA's evaluations will continue so my guess is that the latter ingredients might well be eliminated eventually like the others.

Seems like in general anti-bacterial additives in soaps aren't doing much more and except maybe irritating your skin a little more easily so phasing that out of common use is probably a good thing.

To cut to the chase - soap removes germs (bacteria/viruses) while sanitizer tries to kill them in place without water. Soap allows oils to mix with water and leave your hands. Sanitizer uses alcohol to burst the membrane protecting many but not all germs.

Sanitizer is not effective against certain strains of bacteria that cause gastrointestinal infection like norovirus so it is really not a good substitute for soap and water.

Most important: Wash your hands after you poop, before preparing food, and before eating.

*Ahem*Achieving the super hard time for Facility granted the invincibility cheat, not the all weapons one. The all weapons cheat was from the bonus Egyptian level, which had a much easier target time to beat, as long you had the floor tile puzzle memorized (I totally looked it up online back then).

Going to have to be an ass about this. Sorry, but when did Vinny start making that "Snrk" sound?

I swear it must have began in the last year or so. Don't remember being so irritated by his laugh before then.

Spooky, I just got the Metroid Prime Trilogy myself. If Nintendo announces a Switch port soon, you can thank me and Mike.

Also, Colossal was a great movie! I'm not sure what it was about it, but it just really clicked for me.

Vinny going "I can't deal with two" to the joke QUERTY question is the best.

One also just has to love Dan's dedicationto stealth. This continues to be a great series.

Ladies, let me give you some advice. There's two kinds of guys: guys that have watched three men and a little lady a lot and three men and a baby just a little, and guys that have watched three men and a baby a lot and three men and a little lady only a little bit. Those are the two guys there are

I watched Gotti because of this stream, and while it did have its moments, overall its just sort of bland and unaffecting, not hilarious trash.

There's something about the phrase "making whooppee" that makes it sound SO MUCH filthier than "straight-up fuckin'!" It makes me cringe every time I hear it.

Guys, i'm beginning to suspect that Dan doesn't like Red Dead Redemption 2.

Thankfully he's not know for constantly bringing the same few things up over and over again for years on end in a very annoying way because he loves to troll!

i'm aghast that a group of 4 people didn't know the concept that soap cleans and sanitizer disinfects, antibacterial soap does both. "cleaning" your hands with sanitizer doesnt actually get the dirt and oils off! it's not a cleaner!
