Can you have Head Lice and not know it? Because if you know you have it, why that fark would you purposely put your head against someone else'?

Yes, people are morons.  People have have painful-as-hell STDs and "not know it".

All this article needs is some kind to link to vaping or the marijuana and it's the brass ring of parental fear porn.

There's a kid at my son's school that has long dreadlocks. The school found lice on her head and informed all the parents, including her own. Her parents did fark all about it saying it wasn't anybody's business (stupid, lazy farkers).

That girl knows she has head lice (a really bad case as well as you can actually see them moving about on her head, it's as if her whole head was carpeted with those things) but yet still goes around hugging everyone on purpose...

I've told my kid to stay away from her (not that that would help much). We still ended up finding lice on his head last week. Half an hour later, they were all dead (the lice, not the kid). Modern lice treatments works fast...

Don't head lice outbreaks at schools result in health department investigations?  If that kid's parents don't get a visit from child services for letting their kid run around with parasites, something's wrong with society.

Our county kicks the children out until they have no lice nor nits in their hair.

There was a greenlight not too long ago about school districts changing standards for head lice reporting. There's a trend now of not sending the kid home or alerting other parents because it's socially stigmatizing. Can't find it, but here's the CDC's opinion on it.

-Head lice don't spread disease.
-It's not indicative that the kid is uncared for or lives in a pigsty.
-Modern anti-lice treatments are much more effect than they used to be, so it's less likely to lead to an "epidemic" amongst other students.

There was a story about how some school districts are trying to make it so if your kid is found with head lice, it's considered all good. Cause science supposedly says head lice aren't harmful, just annoying, and these school districts don't want the snowflakes to miss school, just cause of an "annoyance."

Not all people show symptoms of those 'painful as hell' STD's. My friend didn't know he had something until he got a new gf. Then all if a sudden she's freaking out and he didn't think he had anything.

The doc said otherwise, and also told him that sometimes people are just carriers without symptoms.

Head lice though, I'd think you'd notice.

Last weekend my wife and I were in the brand new Whole Foods that opened a couple of weeks ago.  We were meandering by the seafood section and had a brief chat with the young man behind the counter who was wearing bright blue gloves.  As we were stepping away from him and he went on to talk with another customer, he takes off his baseball cap, and runs his gloved fingers through his hair several times.  Out of curiousity I decided to hang around and see what happens.  A few minutes later, a woman comes up to his counter and is talking with him.  He then reaches down and proceeds to pat several pieces of fish with his unchanged gloves.

At that point I went up to the front of the store and brought it to the attention of the management staff.

Any stigma around head lice is just f-ing stupid. Sure, do what you can to avoid it, but really? I suspect that everyone I know has had to deal with head lice at some point. How can people be so backwards about it?

Am I the only one here who used to LOVE head lice checks?  All those ladies running their fingers gently through your hair, felt so good...

Definitely enjoyed those days better than the time I caught crabs in college.

Does it even qualify as a 'selfie' if more than one person is in the photo?

You know what, nevermind, I don't care. I'm just going to sit here and have a nice cup of tea.

I've never had any. I remember periodic checks when I was in elementary school 20-odd years ago, but I don't recall any of my friends or classmates having it either.

Why is there never any warning about pubic lice and movie theaters?
I have stopped going to the theaters no matter how good the movie is.
I can cure head lice in three days, but pubic lice are insane!!

When I was at school (well over 40 years ago), we had regular checks once every couple of months. We'd all line up and wait for the school nurse or someone in authority to check our hair. Anyone who was found to have head lice were told out loud in front of the entire school. Kids started to jeer at them about being 'unclean' and started to keep their distance, even after when the other kids had gotten rid of the lice.

My kids school only alerts parents that there is a head lice problem but they do not say who has it or what to do about it. The schools policy is that it isn't their problem.

Um, no. I was a grown man before I knew 'Cooties' were real. Since I was never around anyone with lice, did not made the association and thought cooties and 'cootie shots' were just some silly made up game that kids played.

/ oh, subby has cooties!

I agree

I had them once in elementary school (along with damn near every other student in my class). My Mom gave me a buzz-cut, scrubbed the remaining hair down with some nasty-smelling chemical, used a nit comb for a few days, and the problem was solved. It helps that  I'm generally an "at arm's length" kind of guy... I hug family, but anyone else gets a handshake or a shoulder pat at best.

Honestly, though... It doesn't matter if your hair is clean or dirty, it doesn't matter how often you bathe... if you bump heads with someone who has lice, you're probably going to get them yourself. That person didn't spontaneously generate them, they bumped heads with someone ELSE who had lice, and that person got them from someone ELSE, and so on and so on. They spread so easily among children that finding someone to blame & shame over it is pointless.
