A Wise Person Learns From the Mistakes of Others (UPDATED)

I'm not particularly wise, but even I can take steps to avoid the tragic fate of our ancestors, the Golgafrinchans.


UPDATE: OK, So I've got this thing, and I must say, I'm suspicious. I have no way of knowing if this is working. There are allegedly two UV bulbs inside, but of course all frequencies of UV light are invisible to about 99.9+% of humans, and then there is the refrigerator door light problem.  

Its controls consist of a flashing light that is green, red, or blue depending on how long a sterilization cycle one chooses. (5,10, or15 minutes). 

It does not even have a manufacturer noted on its packaging, only the words UV Sterilizer and Made in China.  

Upon opening it, I sneezed.

It does not have a plug, per se, but rather a USB cord that plugs into a micro-usb jack on the product itself. (Though in fairness, that obviates the necessity for voltage adapters, since USB is an international standard).

Shamefully lacking any electron microscopes with which to inspect the health of the microbiome on my phone and facemask, I have no way to see if this is working or not and I obviously don't want to stare at what might or might not be a UV bulb.  

There is no instruction for or indications of any ability for changing the allegedly extant UV bulbs.
