These aren't all "household" chores, but I decided to put it in this topic anyway.

The only one I don't and will never agree with is their stance about NOT washing chicken - how ridiculous! Of course you wash a chicken before you use it, for Pete's sake. (I would imagine this applies to any meat, not just chicken, to their way of thinking). When you are getting a chicken ready, you never put it under running water, and you certainly should never ever use a kitchen sink sprayer on it. Only an idiot would do that because the water splatters everywhere, not to mention whatever is on the chicken. No. You run a sink half full of water, or so, and lay the chicken in there, then roll it around a bit from side to side in order to rinse it off. No splattering, and then I clean the sink with my dish soap and add a little orange or lemon oil to the sink as a disinfectant, then rinse well.

"By brushing first the floss will also transfer some of your toothpaste’s fluoride into the crevices between your teeth"

I am so glad I don't use toothpaste with fluoride in it!

I don't rake grass or use a grass catcher.. on 2 acres that would be silly. The only time I rake leaves is when they get blown into a corner of the porch/house, etc. Otherwise, I just mow over everything! Free mulch!

I wash my chicken and other meats.... So far, in all my life, never had any problems from it. Imagine that!

I had my hands at 10 & 2 when the guy ran the stop sign. The airbag broke my arm. And gave me an upper cut to the jaw.

Well, the "teeth thing" is not a problem for me anymore!! But I do use homemade toothpaste because I still brush my gums and scrape my tongue and such.

I agree about the free mulch, that's just what we do, too. We do pick up twigs and larger branches that then to come down like crazy whenever we get a big wind, but otherwise we just mow over whatever is there.

Always wash all my meat, no problems at all either.

When I drive, I almost always keep my hands at the bottom of the wheel - because it was "cool" to do that in high school and I just never changed. :D I also step on the gas pedal with my right foot and the brake with my left foot. Always have. I think I got started doing that when Dad was teaching me how to drive some of the farm equipment because on some of that older machinery that I learned on, you almost needed 4 legs to do the job!
