The artistic choice is a brave one. Rather than showing you how to wash your hands, for some inexplicable reason, they have chosen to show us a band of instrument-playing animals, and then lots of flying yellow penguins.
3. The earworm
This is helpfully set to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It, which helps with trying to encourage students to remember each instruction – and therefore upping the chances of your class actually remembering to wash thoroughly next time they’re doing so unsupervised.
Remember Anthropoid.

Vawter climbed 103 floors of a Chicago skyscraper on his bionic leg, but its designers are still working on improving it. To optimize it for everyday use, they have to make it even thinner and lighter. Its successor (the iLeg Air?) may meet the Army's stated goal for a bionic leg—10,000 steps without recharging.
