Why do all illnessess make you feel crap? can't those clever cloggs up in the medical industry develope an ailment which rather than making you feel like birdcage scrapings, makes you feel like you've been on the party pills... Think of the fun you could have giving your germs to the local 'sort' up the boozer...

       Then you could throw a party where you cough on everyone and make a social disease of it.

       It's the flu they call Dr. Feelgood....

       Right, because medical researchers spend all their time making *diseases* instead of ways to cure them...   

       But seriously. There are drugs and bugs whose effects make you feel euphoric, manic, or intoxicated. Alcohol, marajuana, LSD, opiates... to name a few. And sepsis can make people have the same sort of confusion, disorientation, and sense of well being that some drugs do (though usually you feel like crap). Of course, if you're septic, you're also likely to DIE... minor detail!

       You mean yours don't already? What's wrong with them?

       I remember one time I had a bad fever. I started hallucinating, It sucked at the time but in retrospect, that was a crazy trip, just as good as drugs anyway, so I give this one a +.

       I think it already exist as a gentic defect rather than a Virus. It seems to be most common in metro areas and is somehow activated when one gets behind the wheel of a car. At least in the area that i live everyone on the road is stoned out of their mind.

       I've had dinosaur flu all weekend since Friday, and couldn't go in to work yesterday because I was asleep all day. I'm still mildly delirious, but not as much as I was on Sunday, when I found I was able to write a perl program, somehow.

       There are illnesses that make you feel good. The manic pole of bipolar disorder, for example.   

       What the heck is "dinosaur flu," Ian?

       Dunno. There weren't any chickens in those days.

       Take two spoons of this Pteradactyl syrup and call me in the morning.....

       Aren't chickens prehistoric creatures?
