    Get a flu shot? Sounds like you're getting off pretty easy, flu-wise, if you can actually get *up* and go skiing...

    Agreed. I'm right smack in the middle of it, as well. A cubicle farm as far as the eye can see....and it's supposed to be a "creative" field at that. With rando anti-bongshed tests and cubicle farms, how can one be expected to be creative? I'm all jacked-up on Mt. Dew....

    We've got one of those too... and I quit using it because... you guessed it - nobody would look at it to see what was being done, and then ask in the meeting what was being done. :rolleyes:

    You do it in Colorado. Just ask @Full Trucker. He's a creative guy.

    First CAH packet showed up. I'll take pictures later. New cards are... different. It just took it from a socially offensive game that everybody could enjoy to a politically charged game. They might need to be a group specific add-in.

    I was actually referring to the two acts involved in a Blumpkin. However, I do appreciate you thinking of me when I referenced something great.

    In my last "catch up" meeting, the boss said "you are the only one I have tracking status in VersionOne and I am still not sure what is going on". The reality is I am the only one that followed the directive to start tracking progress in VersionOne as was announced a few weeks ago in the team meeting. It wasn't my idea, I would rather not do it since I am the only one, and yet I am the one being called out for following directions. :disgust:

    Holy shit it's windy out. Bus is getting blown around, went through a cloud of blowing leaves that was like driving into a swarm of locusts. so much crap flying though the air it was hard to see down the road. Wind gust of up to 69 mph have been clocked on the local hilltops with 45 mph winds here in town.

    I got a flu shot this year and haven't yet had the flu. So there is that.

    Also, RIP squirrely pit bull ... he probably wasn't going to hurt anyone. :hmm:

    Another study found almost 0 change in outcome for healthy adults.

    I think you might be better off scarfing down some vitamin C and washing your hands more often.

    That means you have too much free time, expect some more work to head your way soon.

    I just make my managers send an email at the start of the week with planned tasks and one at the end of the week summarizing outcomes.

    Because hippies?

    Don't get too cocky - flu season hasn't really kicked in yet (IIRC Feb is usually the "big" month WRT the flu).

    Cause side effects including, death and partial paralysis. Also going somewhere and getting stabbed by random people. And paying money if your insurance doesn't cover it.

    Honestly, it probably depends on how often you get sick. I don't get sick often (just jinxed myself) so it's pretty useless for me. But if you get the flu every year go for it.

    I'm mandated to get a flu shot each year by my employer. I also gel in and out of rooms and wash my hands like a normal person. All I know is that last year's flu-monia (influenza B confirmed in my younger kid, spread to all of us, and then me getting bacterial pneumonia at the tail end of it) was absolutely awful.

    In other words I just checked the weather and it'll be around 26 degrees at commute hours tomorrow. I think I'll take the electric car with its heated seats and 71 degree interior ambient temperature.

    Hey fella, calm your tits.

    Herd immunity for a flu vaccine would only work if they multiple guess the right viruses every year. It's not like the polio vaccine where it works and polio isn't a thing round here no more. Just look at Toshi's example.
