Three Handles   (+6, -4)  [vote for, against]

All public doors should have three handles so you only have a one in three chance of catching something from the infectious person who used the door before you.

hah, Ian got there before me.

simonj, I think this should be a hundred handles at least.

I'm all for elbow-operated door handle designs.

Then all you have to do is to remember not to lick your elbows ...

It should be a rotating handle design where the closing of the door causes the next handle to appear while the one you just used retracts into the door where an automated disinfectant spray cleans it.

Three handles on two coffee cups, perhaps?.

LOL just watched the "fork handles" sketch having never seen it before
