Not SARS, Not Yet (reprise)
You'd think I'd be above the paranoia, especially after all that ranting over the past few weeks.
SARS and the common cold are cousins, pretty much transmitted the same way. 95% of people who catch it walk away from SARS. The only way you'll get it is if you take a great big whiff o' SARS-rich atmosphere, or if you touch something a SARS victim has recently sneezed on, and then touch your eyes, nose and mouth.
But then, some taxi driver decides he wants to be enthusiastic about where he recently ate and blows a huge gust of lung-wind into my left eye. Hello, paranoia, so nice to see you again.
