The Daily Ping

This Ping redesign took 7 years and cost $58 million in taxpayer dollars.

Biohazard

No, this Ping is not about the early 90’s metal(-ish) band that collaborated with Onyx on the theme song from the Judgement Night soundtrack.

Instead, it’s to tell you that I now know where to deposit certain type of bodily fluids. See, I took the stairs up to my office today and right there on the steps were two locked metal boxes with large biohazard symbols on them. Usually, they’re under the stairwell, but today they were placed on the steps, surely to inform people what belonged in them. A large, bright sticker informed me that the one box was for “blood and urine only.”

Hooray! I don’t think I’ll be eating lunch today!

Just wanted to add the exact wording of the sticker on the box:

“NO DRUGS OR MONEY INSIDE
FOR BLOOD AND URINE SPECIMENS ONLY”

Mmmm… specimens…

Sounds like someone kept breaking into it or something.

You know, the first thing I think of when I see a locked box just sitting out in the open is “hmm, I wonder if there are recreational drugs or a whole lot of cash in there!”.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
