Don't be childish, Burt.

I'm worried about Burt's tummy ache. Can the internet be contagious?

Have you ever had any of the following symptoms?

1. Antisocial tendencies?
2. A feeling of smugness or superiority, mixed with an urge to self-pleasure?
3. Impulsive slutshaming?
4. Impulsive slutting?
5. The poops?
6. An urge to argue about things you really don't care much about?
7. Streaming issues?
8. A feeling of deep and powerful connection with the soft, inviting glow of your computer screen? It's...it's actually quite warm, isn't it? And so totally accepting. It won't hurt you like the others will. Just come a little closer. Feel the screen. Know the screen. Love the screen. In short, dream....

I may or may not have had all of them.

What do I do?
Panic?
Call Wolf Blitzer?

Wolf strikes me as a phone-yeller. Stick with panic.

You should be busy trolling news article comment sections, then:

Quote:
The Director of the CDC—for all their education—is rhetorically, culturally, and virologically ignorant. And such a stupidity heading a medical organization may well prove to be a fatal blunder.

I tend to agree with this part. On CNN this morning there was a professor from Georgetown who said "What happened in Dallas cannot happen again in the US" because "protocols are in place". Which is bullshit. Medical professionals are humans and humans make mistakes despite what well meaning administrators and politicians proclaim. Speaking in absolutes is rhetorically ignorant and people are going to see right through it which will cause more problems than if people were just honest.
