Yes, the #1 challenge to the modern Chinese citizen in 2010 is still the Bus Cootie. Most people will not sit in a bus seat that has just been vacated. They will feel it with their hands and hover over it waiting for it to cool and the cooties to dissipate. Bus cooties apparently are only transferred from a warm seat to another bottom. Apparently only Chinese people get bus cooties, since I always sit on a warm, freshly vacated bus seat and have never been infected.
