I'll take "because it never gets cleaned" for $1000, Alex

That would be the holding tanks and hoses running from one place to the other, good thing water has Chlorine in it, same as beer having alcohol in it, somewhere around 3-5 years into my career I started noticing how those bars and restaraunts I went to still had the same hoses underneath and all the employees had been doing was swapping the keg or syrup package at the adaptor which itself never gets cleaned, and so I'd think pop should be the worst offender, plenty of sugar for the microbes to eat and nothing like chlorine, alcohol, or even hot water in the case of coffee to kill them off.

Airplanes are gross, I think it could be said a person could contract an STD just using the bathroom, and not by joining the mile high club these days.

Someone ELSE joined the mile high club, the flight attendents said "ewwwwww, I'm not cleaning that", and neither did the next crew or the next crew......

"Billy!!! Dont put that in your mouth!!! That's not a water balloon!!! (under her breath) fucking Southwest airlines...." (the job of a mom these days includes situational biohazard awareness it seems)

1. the service provider for those bar room carbonation and sytup systems

(we used coca cola) but anyway they have delivery people for the syrup and co2 who should be cleaning that system from time to time. the "gun" is cleaned dauly by the bartender.

of course, that is all highly theoretical, and depends on marginally skilled americans to do what theu are paid to do. i don't think anyone has died from coke syrup yet, but the health inspectors seem to avoid that area........

2. Something interesting...

I am a professor. I am not a Medical professor however there is a med school on campus. One of my friends is a medical researcher he was telling me that a high sugar environment actually inhibits bacterial growth. Makes sense most surfaces are covered with bacteria where sugar is not present.

3. Makes sense

We brew beer. When we shoot for a high alcohol variant, like a Belgian Trappist, you have to significantly increase your yeast nutrient along with the boost in sugar content. An old trick is a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste. Yeast love it.
