By law, public restrooms are required to use open-front toilet seats, which means there will never be a lid to block this magic mist.
This gal took a few of them home with her on her jacket.
A 2012 study showed that E. coli was a common bacteria found in public restrooms, along with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococus aureus and Salmonella — all of which sound terrifying.
Ryan's shrine is located at the end of the row, but research shows the first stall in a public restroom is used the least, and therefore is the cleanest.
In fact, according to the study, some of the soap they tested contained so much fecal matter that people would be better off washing their hands with water from the toilet after it's been flushed. Um... gross.
Studies have found fecal matter on cell phones, soda drinking fountains, movie theater seats, shopping carts and computer keyboards. If this nasty substance can travel so far, just think of how gross those bathroom walls are.
Gosling's eyes may cause a true fan girl to go weak at the knees, but recouping on the floor is a bad idea. Not only are the floors in public restrooms subject to a constant spray of the magic mist mentioned earlier, they're also covered in bacteria from people's shoes. Mmmm... yummy!
Protect yourself, ladies. Don't let Ryan's eyes get the best of you. Use another stall instead.
