I know that Joplin Globe letter writers usually have a unique (as in, wholly and utterly wrong) spin on science. Evolution, fluoridated water, climate change, are all par for the course.
But whenever anyone brought up the subject of “germs,” grandpa always declared there were no such things as germs. If there had been, everyone who fought in the Civil War would have died of germs instead of enemy bullets.
Well, maybe grandpa knew something about germs that no one else knew. He outlived his wife and three of his daughters and died at the ripe old age of 84.
Anti-germ theory? For realz dawg?
