    Gimme a break. Some of my best friends are mutants.

    I work with several mutants. They pull their weight without complaining.

    When I was a boy, my dad told me, "Son, those mutants put their pants on the same way you do. They jump into them, both legs at once."

    And you, you're a credit to mutants. You have nothing to be ashamed of.

    Figures. As soon as get the "old" syphilis, there's a "new" syphilis.

    Iím betting that it will mutate into the Camry virus, a very practical virus that is front wheel drive.

    Let's just hope it doesn't become a Supra virus.

    I've also heard that drinking the Corona virus can get you into legal trouble if you also get into the Camry virus, so watch out.

    Meh, the generic flu is what we should be more worried about:

    Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate that's higher than the previous one of 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year. The new figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other groups were published Dec. 13 in The Lancet medical journal.

    So, some of the fear is actually warranted. Though not in proportion to the media hype, certainly.

    This.

    BTW the designer masks have been around a long time. Common in Asia nowadays regardless of if there is an epidemic going on or not. It's not just about science, there's a cultural element involved as well.

    My wife, who teaches at a philly university downtown, says all of her Chinese students have been wearing masks since the first notice of corona virus.
