Ah, and in my hometown no less. Fort Worth is not known for inducing mass vomiting, it should be duly noted.

Well, better than mass babies breaking out at vomit shop....I guess.

Authorities don't know what has caused 15 people to suffer headaches and vomiting at a store that sells items for babies.

Gee, I don't know.  Pregnancy?!

Vomit is the grossest thing on the planet. My aversion to vomit was the main deal breaker for me having kids. Seeing or hearing someone vomit IRL makes me start gagging and if I smell it it's all over. Even seeing it on TV or movies makes me queasy. Now barf scenes are common place and it's disgusting. That Family Guy scene made me have to close my eyes and go 'DADADADADA' until it was over.

CSB. One time, I was at a party, and someone put a plastic bag over my head and made me do push ups until I threw up.

I'm with you.  The only bodily fluids I'm totally cool with are blood and tears, which sounds totally badass when I type that out.

I'd probably vomit too if I had to listen to pregnant women prattle on and on about their 4 syllable name they're planning for their kids.

Cuz they're smug

Methinks that baby will look remarkably similar in 30+ years when his mugshot is taken for homicide. Eyes of a soulless killer.  (apologies to the parents)

I used to have issues with vomit, but a few months in the Army will cure that; every major PT test sees at least a few people barfing along side the track or behind a shed after finishing. I've personally never thrown up after a run, but definitely felt the urge a few times. Two - three months in the military will break you of the sympathetic urge when you see the action, that's for sure.

I'm awake only because my son just threw up over his bed and the ground, so I'm getting a kick...no, wait, I'm not. The smell is horrendous.

I am leaning toward the mass hysteria explanation. The two things I can think of that would cause mass vomiting that is not from food are organophosphate poisoning and radiation. These would both cause a lot of fatalities if people were to the point of throwing up.

Ugh, I am completely with you. I have been severely emetophobic (yes, that's what it's called and it's definitely a prevalent thing) ever since I was a small child. I'm 30 now and still cannot have anything whatsoever to do with it. It was also a deciding factor in my not wanting kids. Everything else-blood, wounds,bruises,shiat, piss, bodily fluids, I'm strangely okay with. But the second somebody horks, I'm hitting the ground running.

That reminds me of the time I woke up in a puddle of gluey, stringy purple liquid that used to be the Jager and rum that I'd been drinking the night before.

As I cleaned it up, I clearly remember thinking "Wow, I must still be drunk, because this doesn't bother me at all!"

From the CDC:

What are the symptoms of CO poisoning?The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. High levels of CO inhalation can cause loss of consciousness and death. Unless suspected, CO poisoning can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms mimic other illnesses. People who are sleeping or intoxicated can die from CO poisoning before ever experiencing symptoms.

Maybe the initial trigger was a very ugly baby and then vomiting begat more vomiting until we have a vomitorama.

Don't pregnant women tend to have a heightened sense of smell?  Or is that a myth?  Anyway, lots of people with a heightened sense of smell + an unusual number (for whatever reason, probably coincidence) of "sympathy pukers" might have caused this.

I always had that so called sensitive gag reflex until about two years ago.

CSS: I moved in with my significant other and his 12 (now almost 14 y/o son) a while back, and within the first 2 months of living here, the kid got violently ill.  So, I did the step-mom thing, got him some cold/flu medicine and came back home to give it to him.  After dosing him with a small amount of cherry Nyquil for his throat and head, he promptly threw up on me.  Projectile style.  He hardly knows me, I hardly know him, he's old enough to know how bad it is and poor kid is burning with fever.  He kept saying over and over, I'm so sorry....initially I thought I'd barf on the floor right next to him, but thank heavens for maternal instincts (apparently I had some long buried and they finally kicked in that day) and I managed not to. Got him, the couch and me cleaned up without tossing my cookies.  Now that I've been exposed to broken bones, blood, vomit, severe asthma attacks, his dad having shingles (really, really bad) and every other type of nastiness that comes with being ill, I'm ironclad.  Mostly.

It sounds like the parents should be apologizing. I hope it doesn't kill anybody you know.

I used to be too.

When my son was an infant, I heard my wife call from the bedroom for a towel, which meant the baby had puked. I hardly noticed by that time anymore. But when I saw her I almost fainted...she was drenched, and I mean drenched, from head to foot in vomit. It didn't seem possible that a tiny little baby could contain so much barf. I still see that image in my nightmares.

She had taken all of it so none of it got on the futon. God, I love that woman. I can't touch her any more, not after that, but God I love her.
