Everything is vague to a degree you do not realize

Everything is vague to a degree you do not realize till you have tried to make it precise, and everything precise is so remote from everything that we normally think, that you cannot for a moment suppose that is what we really mean when we say what we think.

A recent study showed that the surface with the highest concentration of viruses at an airport is actually those little bins you put your coat and shoes in at security. Researchers collected air and surface samples at Helsinki-Vantaa, the main airport in Finland, weekly during the peak flu season in 2015 and 2016. Each of the samples was tested in real time for flu virus, as well as four other common cold-causing viruses including rhinovirus and adenovirus. The security bins tested positive 50 percent of the time for four different viruses, the highest of any surface and much worse than compared to, for example, the toilet seats, which didn’t test positive for viruses once over 14 tests.
