My stupid body's crapped out on me and decided to give in to the viruses.

Stupid body.

A) Why does it allow viruses in in the first place? Is there some beneficial application for virus-cell interaction? Maybe I'm oversimplifying the process and a cell just wouldn't work with a virus defense shield, but I'd pay for that.

B) Why can't I be in better control of my systems, or at least get better feedback. The brain must have this information to hand somewhere and must be making decisions based on it. If we could control it too, we might have a better chance at getting rid of the virus quicker (or dying horribly within the first five minutes). Surely with our cognitive faculties and our ability to work as a group, humans would be better equipped to know how better to deal with the virus than our primeval sub-conscious.

C) I think I've gone insane and should probably sleep.

Get better soon, Mark.

Have you tried taking Glaxo Smith Kline's new placebo treatment? I understand it's very effective. Although I don't know what it was up against in clinical trials.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

I agree.

Mark, you lovely bloke, you have forgotten to take the cod liver oil tablets. The body takes in thousands of invaders every day and normally beats the crap out of them. Viruses that make you ill have entered the body and told your immune system that they are a nice virus so are left alone.

Then, when no one is looking, they start kicking the crap out of you. Get well soon mate. But please stay away from us. UNCLEAN! UNCLEAN! MARK HAS THE LURGY ALERT! LURGY ALERT!


Love as always

Mark,

I would prescribe two bottles of whisky and 40 Rothmans to be taken liberally followed by a donor kebab with everything on it.

It always helps me to sleep, although you do end up feeling like a mouldy old carpet the next day.

I hope this helps.

Dr Simon.

PS. Seriously though, hope you get well soon!

Get well soon Chief.

My very own dear old dad got taken ill this week, so I know how you feel.

I hope you aren't quite as ill as he was though. I'm a bit tied up making funeral arrangements right now. (True, that is.)

Regards

Skoob.

You should stay away from those syphilitic harpies.

I caught gonorrhea from just looking at one once, but luckily that was just a dream, so it healed up easily.
