Think I'd rather have the cold. [Feb. 23rd, 2009|06:01 pm]

I was just reading something posted in the library restroom about how to avoid catching a cold. The advice more or less amounted to:

  • Avoid human beings.
  • Don't share.

Library bathroom FAILS.

Wash hands and wear a surgical mask and you reduce your chances of contracting the cold virus. Also, never touch your eyes with your hands. Rubbing virus directly into your eyes lets it walk right in the front door.

I haven't had a cold in over a year or more.

I noticed lots and lots of folks wearing surgical masks in public in Tokyo, and a fair number in Sapporo and Kyoto too. Here, it would get you laughed at.
