Out of the Blue

I had a scratchy nose and throat last night, and was worried I'd wake up today with a cold. Instead I awoke to a sore throat that made it very painful to swallow. I remember getting sore throats as a kid that were not part of larger colds, but I'm not sure that's happened since my troublesome adenoids were removed. But I certainly hope this is indeed just isolated to my throat, as nobody needs the misery of a cold. I guess I'll just gargle a lot and keep my fingers crossed.

Vaccines may not cause autism but judging by the single-minded obsession and resistance to facts that anti-vaxxers exhibit, I have determined that anti-vax causes autism.

Bwhahahaha this made my morning.

The solution to the toxicity of identity politics surely isn't to add white identity politics to the mix.

Natural method:

Fresh garlic, peel and crush while adding oil and a little bit of salt. Once it's in a paste like mixture, add some sour cream.

Based on: Mujdei

Works great as topping on any kind of meat, bread, or grilled vegetable. Chef

I also as a kid I got sore throats 3-4 times a year, most of them were strep. Eventually they simply went directly to a penicillin shot bypassing the oral treatment. At 13, I had my tonsils removed. Never happened after that. Unfortunately they did NOT remove my adenoids at the same time, as they should have. Because of that, and my narrow nasal passage, I have difficulty breathing through my nose.

Here's to hoping you don't have strep.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

@Blue

Chloroseptic is your friend. Spray that shit into the back of your throat and be pain free for hours.

At least stop throwing pizza on the ROOF, people. Just throw them into their kitchen, so they can be eaten.

At least you can sleep well knowing that the sore throat was not caused by a vaccine.

Are you an anti-vaxxer?

Good luck with that, Blue! For me a sore throat just means that it's October.
