What do you think of the term "germ"?

I hate it. It is very non-specific. I'm always wondering if we're talking virus, bacteria, fungus ...

It just seems so old school. Like, before there were microscopes and electron microscopes;)

  • It's a generals statement meaning something that can make you sick or harm you. That's what I think of when the term is used. So, use whatever you want to use when referring to whatever it is your talking about.
