Really, what’s next about the Swine Flu?
From MSNBC this week- http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32863511/ns/health-swine_flu/
Swine flu deaths show this flu is different. H1N1 virus ‘looks like avian flu on steroids,’ expert says.
The last sentence of the article which notes the difference in the veracity of H1N1 in attacking patient lungs, is this little tidbit:
Ruiz-Palacios also said the new virus can be found in the urine and feces of patients, something that may affect how it spreads.
The effect that may affect how it spreads, is the fact that we all go to the bathroom. Everyone of us.
Public bathrooms are notorious for filth, but even the cleanest restrooms of the fancy Vegas hotels are laden with invisible germs. I mean, how do you go to the bathroom without touching the door and then maybe the stall?
Sanitized for your protection, my ass.
The episode from the Soprano’s comes to mind about Paulie Walnuts Gualtieri shoelaces. “Even if you keep your shoes tied, and your laces aren’t dragging through urine….then Silvio eating his lunch- SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!” So I can’t stand touchin fuckin’ shoelaces.” something like that anyways.
Charles Gerba, Ph.D., co-author of “The Germ Freak’s Guide to Outwitting Colds and Flu,” suggests some of her advice seems panicky, like the suggestion to exit a public restroom stall immediately after flushing, since “fecal matter” can fly 20 feet into the air when flushed (“Better to Flush and Rush than Feel the Gush”).http://www.amazon.com/Germ-Freaks-Guide-Outwitting-Colds/dp/0757303277
I am going to be moving a little faster out of the stall.
How about touching the sink handles after the person in front of you just took a crap. Or the soap dispenser? Back out the door?
Don’t even get me started on the grocery stores or restaurant menus.
Aw piss on it. I’ve got a good immune system and I am sure as hell not going to make it all day without going to the the bathroom and I am not the boy in the bubble.
Cheers to hoping our body’s immune systems don’t go ape shit and kill us, because I am not getting a seasonal or a Swine Flu Shot- EVER. Piss on that.
btw for whatever it’s worth- In a 2007 University of Florida study, people who took a 450-milligram green-tea supplement twice a day for 3 months had a third fewer days of cold symptoms. Try Immune Guard ($30 for 60 pills, www.immune-guard.us).

Open wide, say ahhh and check out these posts on the A/H1N1 Swine Flu from Ahrcanum, where the conspiracy spreads as fast as the virus itself.
