I've heard that taking zinc, like Cold-eaze can help the symptoms and length of a cold, and I think there are even a few studies backing that up.
There's also documented cases of people using their sense of smell.

Don't forget the documented cases of alien abductees too...

Ugh...speaking of which, this virus isn't terrestial, it's gotta be a alien engineered super duper virus(tm) trying to take hold of the human population...I always wondered what it would be like to be one of the first to greet aliens? Never thought it would end like this....Where the hell is Will Smith when you need 'im, eh?!

EDIT: OH, right, he's busy divorcing his alien wife...forgot...

Otherwise (as was the case over TG) I manage cold symptoms using Nyquil for the cough and pain, and Afrin for the congestion. Combined with extra sleep and lots of hot fluids (to help break up congestion), the suffering tends to be over in a few days.

Yeah, no, getting pissed doesn't seem to do anything more than make me feel worse...You're in good company Blue. Trust me. I think I got maybe an hour of sleep last night. Things aren't looking any better tonight either... ugh...At least I feel halfway decent enough to play LA Noire, so that takes your mind off for a little bit anyway...

In a couple months we'll look back and laugh...I hope...
