So long as I'm not one of those 23,000, everything is groovy. More elbow room!

Let's make antibiotic resistant bacteria illegal.

That should do it.

The problem isn't that we're breeding super=bacteria, the problem is that we're not breeding them super enough.

Keep on using those antibiotics until you've bred 'em big as a mouse. Then you can just step on them. Problem solved. You'll be able to see an infection before it gets anywhere near you.

Marmilman: foo monkey: Is this where I tell the story about how I got a MRSA infection on my balls?

Yes. I'm sure that's hilariously painful. I got staph on my waist and waited a month or so before getting it taken care of. That procedure farking hurt. BAD. A year later a friend of mine got staph on his dick. He said he passed out when they started to work on him.


That's what I call a STAFF infection!

Delta1212: Serious Post on Serious Thread: nekom: silo123j: 1) Quit screaming for a farking z Pac every time you sniffle
2) Quit asking for AB for your snot nosed brat. Unless they have a high fever indicating a bacterial infection, AB will not work on an ear infection.
3) Quit doing C-sections because it is "easier"; kids need the microbes from the vajayjay.
4) Step away from the Purell. You are breeding superbugs with your freakiness about germs.And they are making money off of you.
5) Stop being such a farking germaphobe. YOU NEED THEM GERMS.
6) Take some farking probiotics.

All of this.  Also when you actually DO need antibiotics, finish the script, there's a reason a certain amount is prescribed.

Are u 2 teh tarded?

#4: purell is not an anti biotic. It's gelatinized ethanol.

If that caused germ resistance the first time a berry dropped into a bog and fermented, all higher life forms on earth would've been doomed.

Stop talking out yr arse.

Do you understand what germ resistance is? Hitting bugs with antibiotics doesn't make them more deadly or harder for your immune system to kill.

Any method you use to kill germs that does not kill every last one of them creates a strain that that particular method is just a bit less effective at killing. Because they're all descended from the ones that didn't get killed in the first round.

Repeated exposure to ethanol wouldn't make a bug that is hard or impossible to kill, thus dooming us all. It'd make a bug that is hard or impossible to kill with ethanol.


As a real-world example of Delta1212's point, you have all those Marshall Islanders who are now immune to atomic bombs. You can't fool Mother Nature.

I read somewhere that germs are bad.  Now you're telling me I need germs?  Clearly you need to pick a position and stick to it.

I agree with all of these except #4.  Hand sanitizers are alcohol based, which destroys everything inside a bacteria cell at once.
They can't ever build a resistance to it.

On a serious note, as a comparison, in the US 33,561 people died in car accidents in 2012.
