Grime, filth and dirt

Today is Clean Off Your Desk Day! Yes, it’s true – this day apparently does exist, so we in the EMBL Course and Conference Office decided to take it to heart and do something about it.

After working hard all day, the last thing anyone wants to do is clean off their desk. Finding out about this day however made us think – how dirty are our desks really? Since we are at the source of science, we decided to turn it into an experiment, and took a look at the level of grime of the desk we sit at for eight hours per day.

Needless to say, we have now cleaned off our desks. Perhaps now we should start looking for jobs outdoors…
