I had a hipster turkey so
 
2011-11-24 11:30:45 PM  
Because I accidentally swallowed the beak?
 
2011-11-24 11:31:09 PM  
So, antibiotics wont kill bacteria? How the hell is my body going to get rid of them, then?!
 
2011-11-24 11:33:41 PM  
I don't care. This year's turkey was worth dying for.

Did everyone here have a good Thanksgiving?
 
2011-11-24 11:33:46 PM  
Then I'll die happy.
 
2011-11-24 11:35:47 PM  
Fark you sciencey guy, I'm goign to eat my bird and be happy while you life in fear and die a miserable death
 
2011-11-24 11:36:33 PM  
But the doctor told me it was just a little flesh-eating bacteria, they'd have it under control in no time.
 
2011-11-24 11:38:06 PM  
Well, after reading that, I'm gonna have to stop after 5ths... or 6ths tops.

/hell who am I kidding, I don't care.. article is prolly just more BS by someone wanting their name in the news like the rest

Start feeling sick. See this at the top of fark. Thanks subby.

Choose the tofu and join me. Choose the turkey and join your mother in death.
You do not understand my words, but you must choose.
Come boy. Choose life or death.

Is it because they're Seekrit Muslin Islamofascist Brrroke Hussein Fartbongo terrorist turkeys?

Well, the proliferation of anti-biotics and "hand sanitizers" being a health issue should be ignored because you are happy. Yay.

Of those, approximately 96 percent were resistant to at least one antimicrobial agent.

Lemme guess... you included "Prayer" as one of your antimicrobials, didn't you?

After having to work today followed by a cold Thanksgiving dinner in this farking homeless shelter, I'm pretty sure it'll be a gunshot wound to the head that kills me.

Hope the rest of you had a better day.

Better to starve then.

These people never farking quit with their same old dooms-day scenarios.

The only thing that changes, is the season in which they choose to piss and moan.

If people are wondering why no one's cracked down on this, it's because the harmful bacteria that infect livestock generally have little to no cross-over with those that infect humans. There is some genetic interaction, yes, but for the most part the cross-species transfer of resistance genes from livestock bacteria is in practice going to be dwarfed by the in-strain spread of resistance from people that don't take their meds as directed and use hand sanitizer.

I mean, it's all fun from a scaremongering perspective to try to use the 80% of AB goes to livestock thing to get people to watch your silly news-style show, but realistically this has as much merit as the usual "bacteria in playgrounds will DESTROY ALL THAT YOU LOVE" fluff pieces. Concentrating on livestock when trying to fix immunity prevalence in diseases is sort of like trying to fix the fact that your car is parked in a hail-storm by turning the defrost up.

Don't be ridiculous. Prayer works WELL less than 4% of the time.

Is hand sanitizer really an issue? I'd imagine that alcohol-based ones are nigh impossible for bacteria to evolve a resistance to.

In all seriousness, things are looking up for me (I guess they couldn't be bleaker). I've got a job and the apartment will be ready next week. In the meantime I've just gotta deal with the drug addicts, thieves, Christians and schizophrenics.

It's the lack of intelligence around here that really sets off my depression. And the guy that snores at 100db.

Please, I can deal with this:

I wish for a turkey sandwich, on rye bread, with lettuce and mustard, and, I don't want any zombie turkeys, I don't want to turn into a turkey myself, and I don't want any other weird surprises. You got it?

Thats true. Resistance to alcohol is not the issue.

Resistance to triclosan is the issue, an ingredient in antimicrobial soaps.

Even that is overblown next to the issue of antibiotics in animal feed.

Well, I think the alcohol does a lot of the killing in those alcohol based sanitizers. Bacteria can't develop a resistance to alcohol. lol, at least i hope not.

So actually it seems like by asking that question you are indicating that you do not, in fact, know the answer to it.

Congrats dude. I was unemployed for more than a year. I got a job 6 months ago and I have never felt better.

It could happen, there are extremophiles, but bacteria evolving resistance to alcohol or bleach or something would be like humans evolving a resistance to fire.

No, that is not true. It really doesn't matter what is killing the germs, they do indeed mutate.
