They would wash their hands, but due to the sequester the NPS is shutting down park restrooms left and right.

I was in the park last weekend - I resorted to dipping my hands into the geyser pools and presto! Instant sanitation!  (Ow, ow ow...)

`Wash your hands' they said!
*flush*
`Or "Inverted-Faithful" will get you!' they added!
*flush*
Why didn't I heed their warning?

Last summer people should have avoided Yellowstone like the plague.

Norovirus is now found in cruise ships and national parks.  What is it about vacation spots that makes this stuff so infectious?  Why haven't we heard of massive outbreaks in schools, hospitals, convention centers, etc?

Didn't this happen last year, too? You'd think food service workers could wash their hands properly, with all that boiling water available.

I figured this story would be a warning about giardia, aka 'Beaver Feaver'. Got that in Grade 7 while camping in Banff National Park. Sickest week of my life; between what I lost out both ends I lost near 20lbs...

Since i am posting while sitting here waiting to see Old Faithful to erupt, i am getting a kick out of this.

And with a 20+ window for the eruption, it doesnt seem too faithful to me.

Bound to happen that the Cruise ship industry norovirus would migrate inshore. People and their hands.

Aint that a thing.  I grew up in the shadow of the Rockies and have been drinking from mountain streams my whole life, never got the fever.  You come out once and bam.

You could also televise the sheep-shagging.  Then we wouldn't have to visit to watch you do that.
