Cheating, Viruses and Burning Men

I took off work today with a "cold" that somehow morphed into a death-spiral of coughing and fever.  With all the mosquito bites I've had this year, I'm beginning to wonder... I was once at the birthplace of SARS,  months before it was announced to the world.  That story will wait for another day.

First up, here's a marathon cheater none of would vote for!

And here's a quite objective look at The Burning Man Festival that just ended.  Anyone ever attend one of these? Beware: The author is a noted climate "skeptic".

This would have been my favorite part of the Festival...

And I did keep The Streak alive by running a spirited 11:00 mile while coughing up 1/2 a lung.


  1. Was the cold subsequent to an activity which took place near an open window? LTM

  2. At least then I would have had some benefit from it! Alas, windows are sealed and I am the King of the Castle, or at least the Prince of the Principality.


Thanks for commenting. Keep up the good work! (Try to mention others to encourage them to comment too!)
