Survey: Do You Eat At Your Desk?

In some countries, cars don't have cup-holders; a car is not a kitchen. Neither is an office, yet one often sees people eating at their desks. We have noted before that fire retardants are fat soluble, so you shouldn't type with greasy fingers; We also just learned that keyboards can be full of bacteria from food particles rotting away. Some people, like Michael Pollan, say that a key to healthy eating is to sit down at a dining table and have a real meal; others will eat anything anywhere.
