Hello, I'm Dakota Barnett

I am a freshman here at Marion OSU, with a planned major in mechanical engineering. I enjoy video games and books. I decided to go into engineering to make some of the things that are science fiction, reality. My other hobbies include: model building and doodling.

"You Herr Professor, have been a partner in this massacre..."

I enjoyed reading "On Washing Hands". The spread of disease in hospitals is a serious problem. One that is comparable to everyday life. The spread of germs is a problem everywhere; schools, restaurants, and other public places. If more people washed their hands the spread of disease would drop substantially. I personally have always been a little grossed out when people use the restroom, but leave without washing their hands. Hand washing is the best way to prevent the spread of germs as stated in this essay.


  1. I could not agree with you more Dakota. If doctors would simply wash their hands when they go from patient to patient, then the spread of disease would be lowered. I also feel grossed out when I see people leave the bathroom without washing their hands. Good luck on getting your degree in mechanical engineering!

  2. I agree about how you said that germs are a problem everywhere. I find it pretty sad that restaurants have signs that say employees must wash their hands. I think places need to hang signs in restrooms that have pictures of the diseases that were highlighted throughout the story and maybe then people will learn to wash their hands.
