...so you don't catch this stuff.
Ouch! That sounds nasty!
Like we needed another reason!?
It's terrible out here - stay away.....
Well, this would be a bad time to consider moving to the Bay Area, wouldn't it?
160 deaths a year among some 45 million people? Forgive me if I don't quake in my boots.
Your risk is greater from the flu. A lot greater.
Try to find some perspective.
A way to lessen the prison population and they move them.
SHHHHHHHHH!!! No! The West, (Especially Central Oregon) is a disease-ridden wasteland full of pre-zombiod fungus infected citizens. Stay out East, with your tornadoes, your hurricanes, your crowds and your low crime rates. You won't like it here.
Valley fever. Nothing new. I know of people who got it 40 years ago.
I had the unwelcome opportunity to learn all about valley fever in 2006, after a observatory CT scan (eight months after a cancer diagnosis) revealed two growths on my lung. The biopsy revealed them to be due to a respiratory infection -- and the doctor suddenly became very interested in the fact that I was from New Mexico.
In the end, it wasn't cocci but rather histoplasmosis. Histo can also be a nasty bug, but it's usually not as severe as valley fever. Two weeks of VERY strong antifungals cleared it up... and, thankfully, it wasn't cancer!
Speaking of the area mentioned in the article, I guess common sense might tell folks that a place that smells of cow manure 365 days/year might possibly have some unhealthy stuff in the soil/air. Not that the problem is that simple, but it is basically an agricultural wasteland, in comparison to the rest of the West coast.
It doesn't take being in an agricultural area. Karen's mom was diagnosed with it a few years ago in Phoenix, and contracted pneumonia from it. They cleared it up in her case.
That, and the cost of living.
That and you need to speak two languages.
Lyme Disease is the big one here. I don't know how wide spread it is, but you don't get cured from Lyme Disease.
You get that from ticks, not spread through the air.
I know that.
Explain Washington DC, then...
We also have West Nile Virus from the Mosquitos and Hanta Virus in rodent droppings.
It's an awful place to live. No one should move here ever again.
That's human manure
We have killer bees too.
Hobo spiders too. Stay far away.
And fires, lots of fires. Stay far away.
I second that. Today was 75 and sunny (isn't that a Country song?) with the dewpoint in the low fifties...ugggh.
That's yet another reason why no one moves or vacations here! The terrible weather. The awful scenery. Ugly cities like San Francisco.
I'm lovin' life in So. Cal., where I came to go to UCLA, never left, and never will...
You can have your damn rocks. They just make weather and eat airplanes. Some of us don't need a turbo just to fly to the next airport down the road.
and you have sidewinders, right?
And black widow spiders. Stay away!
And Brown Recluse spiders, too.
Please never come to Puget Sound, it rains all the time, and you need a IFR rating to open the hangar doors.
I got Valley fever and bronchitis at the same time, which also gave me pneumonia in my early 20s and lived to tell about it.
You got to be tough to live West of the Mississippi…
That's why the wimpy people stayed east of the Mississippi while the West was won.
Heh... was right there with ya until you posted a picture of Marion, the really short dude who had to stand on boxes to kiss the girls and look tough.
The Duke was 6'4"
Who was the Western actor who always had to have the ladies walking down trenches so he wasn't tiny next to them? Hmm.
Guess I mixed them up with The Duke. There's SOME controversy about the Duke's claimed 6' 4" (well, according to Google anyway, since you made me go look... he was listed as 6' even in a number of documents prior to being in the film industry...) but that's still pretty tall.
Heh... and in looking at a couple of websites realized how short Burt Reynolds was, nor that he wore lifts all the time to help with that.
Ahhh, short, tall... doesn't matter... tough is tough.
But it's not PC to be tough anymore. All the TV guys are idiots who's wives are the geniuses in the household, fixing their "wacky" antics... don't'cha know???
IMDb has him at 6'4".
Considering he was born in the early 1900s… that's pretty tall
Yeah, now it's bugging me that I can't remember. Clark Gable perhaps? No... 6' 1"...
Crap... there was a famous actor who did tons of Westerns (yeah, I know Gable did not do lots of Westerns... movie trivia portion of brain is mush today... or maybe the whole brain, who knows...?) who was actually a really short guy and they used all sorts of tricks to make him look taller...
Don't forget the scorpions! Oh Lord, the scorpions...
Yeah, but you can find those with a blacklight. (And man, is that COOL!)
It was probably Audey Murphy, you know, the most decorated WWII Veteran turned movie actor. I don't think he was very tall.
