Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water


First there was west nile and sars and mad cow and swine flu. Now when you thought you could sneak around and avoid sudden death, another nasty has come back to rear its' ugly head. Scientists have checked the beaches and waters on the coast of Washington state and found MRSA. You remember that from a few years back as the flesh eating bacteria that can kill you in a few short days if it's not treated. My guess is that with all the antibiotics that are used by a population in the millions that this is working its' way into the water supply and the result is super resistant bugs.

I spend a fair amount of time at beaches but considering all the things I've done to invite death I guess there isn't much point in my worrying much about that.

When young I didn't think I was going to live half as long as I have, maybe the universe just fucking hates me, ha ha ha.

Maybe someday these monkeys will figure out that over populating the planet hurts natures ability to heal it.

Of course, it's clear that in many ways nature is an idiot also. Mankind will learn how to improve on her work in time.

Assuming mankind makes it to that point, but if it does it will be with a lot less monkeys.

And I'm fine with that, I don't picture me being here much longer anyway. I start out each day assuming that I may die that day.

And I have no problem with taking my own life after passing a point on a path I don't want to be on.

That's interesting, although the story is woefully incomplete. It's what happens when newspapers try to lay-off their way back to success and broadcast news operations are more concerned with toothpaste-ad grins, snazzy hair and a willingness to be a conduit for infotainment, instead of digging for facts and details the way reporters used to do.

I wonder if some creatures have become vectors for MRSA. Maybe some form of mollusk or even birds. Sea water and brackish water subject to tidal flows are usually self cleansing.

I will be interested to see if public health people come up with some vector or source for the bug, other than that it's floating around in the water and sand.

Not sure what happened, but the previous comment is mine.

BBC, no offense but I tend to think anyone who mentions how unconcerned he is about his own mortality as regularly as you do is really more than a little concerned about his own mortality. Not that there's anything particularly wrong with that. ;)

Antibiotics have caused more problems than they've solved. When you need them you need them, but they've been so overused, they're practically useless now.

I keep meaning to stock up on the herbs that comprise "Four Thieves Vinegar" (google the term, you'll see a lot of links) and just use them to ward off Swine Flu, Martian Death Rattle and whatever else is lying in wait for us. I haven't had an antibiotic or any vaccinations for eons now, and I'd like to keep it that way.
