FYI...on the www:shaving brushes and anthrax

Feel free to post anything unrelated to wet shaving or men's grooming (I.e. cars, watches, pens, leather goods. You know, the finer things of life).

Do Anthrax spores live for 80+ years? The article doesn't address this, although by implication one could conclude that they do.

They can live that long under the right conditions.

There is an island off of Scotland where anthrax was tested, and as of 40 years ago (from what I remember) it wouldn't be habitable for another 60 years or so.

Here's the story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotland/1457035.stm

My info was old, they decontaminated it.
