Judging by the state of things in the world today, I'd venture to say this virus must have infected much of the human race. Not all mind you, but quite a bit.

I've harboured my own suspicions about the "dumbing down" of the populace in recent times. I'm pretty sure that the virus is water-borne. Probably a conspiracy between govenments and big corporations. And spread by the water companies. Chlorine doesn't kill it. Fluoride may exacerbate the infection. It's why I restrict myself to Heineken beer now (gave up on Scotch about 2 months ago), seeing how it also somehow affects con-pilot and others here. :ok:

Nah. Spread by contrails, mate.

I understand retinal contamination is possible: subliminally transmitted optical virii found in certain Social Networking sites, especially when accessed from smartphones while walking down the street. Through the eyes into the brain, very fast-acting, disconnects all other senses especially but not only the ears.

When are they gonna discover the Twiggy virus?

Its the one that keeps women's tits from growing to their full 40 sized bust potential.

It's always nice when incontrovertible evidence can prove a theory....

I presume it affects females more than it does males.

The stupid gene was much in evidence where I was driving this evening. Suicyclists, pissing rain, poor lighting, black clothing, no lights, no reflective clothing. Idiots.

Should have mowed down a few of 'em. Would have made Mr. Darwin very happy. :ok::E:}

They weren't flashing their lights, they were willfully blinding the poor girl with their main-beams. Heck, she was keeping to the hard shoulder, what DO they want?

"Oh no! I'll never see my wife and child again . . . and it's their birthday. Boo HOOOOOOOO." Said one lorrydriver while eating a hedgehog sandwich and tapping his fingers to 'I like trucking.' song.

.A (blonde) friend, staying at our place, decided she'd cook an egg in a quick and easy way she'd thought of.
She simply put the egg in the microwave, gave it 3 minutes and walked away.

Well, you guessed it.
The resultant explosion blew the microwave door off its hinges and covered the opposite wall, cupboards and benches with a most interesting pattern.

Now, I don't think she's completely stupid because, AFAIK, she's never done it again.

What I'd like to know is how come everyone around me has caught this virus and I haven't?

Because Mr Os we are the natural offshoots of certain ancestral lines of the human animal. Somewhere in our past our ancient ancestors got their arse severly kicked and went "Ugh..ughugh....Ugh...UGH!" (I won't fcuken do THAT again! EVER!). Thus their was a mutation of our specie and the Survival Gene was born - and maintained down to our time in history. The Idiot Virus has also survived but Nature gives the advantage by taking a lot of those beings out every year than us and so keeps the global population number in reasonable check.

The Survival Gene will automatically repel the Idiot Virus which is why we don't catch it.

That said I'm not immune to the Social D!ckhead bacterium esp when I catch it from copius amounts of beer or spirits...:\ A fellow sufferer here. I am in a twelve step program to resolve that.
Step 1: Have a pint
Step 2: Have another pint
etcetera

I think I'll recover from the disease, since after 12 pints I'll be passed out on the floor and not be able to say anything stupid or rude ... :ok:
