Quote
“This is everywhere. I mean, this is not an ‘Eagle Ridge outbreak,’” said Buynder. “Next week it will be Boston Bar or Chilliwack or whatever. We're just going to have a bad year with norovirus this year, because of the new strain.”

And then cue the anti-vaxxers (order the comments from first to last, these will be at the top):

Quote
Every year its the same storie a new strain so why do people get the shot

Quote
The shot is just a way to nationalize strains that would have died off on local levels.
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Aah, yes.  It couldn't possibly be because, ya know, fucking science.  Or doctors over-prescribing antibiotics, patients not completing antibiotic regimens, or just plain science.

That's more for stronger bacteria being developed, as far as the use of antibiotics.  Virii sort of just change their code over time to become new or modified versions of an older piece of bad code.

Also, why are those fucking airheads allowed to comment on anything?
In paranoia I find genius / But the ice-dreams have come
with spiritless consequence / A hatchet has been hidden
between my eyes / A hatchet gift-wrapped in paranoia / A
wooden heart never bleeds / A wooden heart never bleeds,
yet inextricable thoughts still weave / Introspection
fabricated for battle / No time has been wasted
/ Neuroleptic seconds marry electroconvulsive hours / In
the cranial freezer, paranoia is the bastard and I
find genius Petrify / Paralyze

... Norovirus is A: A virus, so anti-boitics would have negligible effect on them and B: Norovirus isn't vaccinated against.

Norovirus is a food borne illness that can pass person to person once ingested. You can prevent it by being cautious about food safety. If you're worried about it, look up your food safety and follow it religiously. In fact, normal norovirus accounts for the largest percent of foodborne illness. However it is much less dangerous than Salmonella, e. coli and most other foodborne illnesses. I just learned about this stuff during last semester, so these anti-vaxxers are so far off that they need to be slapped. Lots.

Also, surprised the 'raw' foodies aren't out.
The material needs a defender more than the spiritual. If there is a higher power, it can defend itself from the material. Thus denotes 'higher power'.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.
