I'm back home!

And I have a cold!

Or possibly one of those brain parasites that you can apparently get from cats, the ones that manifest with the symptoms of a cold, but after that, <i>may</i> (this bit is still controversial) lay dormant in your brain forever, making you introverted and suicidal.

It's probably a cold.

But if I contracted something that was making me introverted, how would anyone be able to tell?

Anyways, I'm back.

If you are referring to toxoplasma gondii, it makes you extroverted and risk taking. Unless there is another one that does make you introverted, in which case you could have both and the symptoms would be neutralising each other so you'd never know. That is of course until something sudden and horrible happened.

Ah, no fear then. I did walk across a road when I could barely balance to stand, but that was because I was hungry, so I don't think it is out of character. Seems like there is only cause for worry if I get into extreme sports and start dudebroing all over the place.

So basically, if I turn into Andrew W.K.

Party 'till you puke!

I mean, err, reserved srsface. No parasites here. Move along.

Although I do recall now there were gender differences in behaviour of the infected, so possibly introversion could be a symptom.

I read something recently about someone who went ski diving with their roller derby gear on. The buzzer warning them to open their shoot didn't go off. It didn't end well. So um... don't do that?

I couldn't afford that.

Although... if I used a homemade trebuchet instead of a plane....

...and an umbrella instead of a parachute....

I meant sky diving, but ski diving is probably none too safe either (I know someone who got impaled by a tree, and after getting bandaged up continued skiing. Skiiers are nuts).
