    Listerine kill 99.9% of germs. Listerine contains alcohol. You got sick. Therefore you did not drink enough booze at defcon.


    I know at least one person in my group who is sick after defcon.

      I know that bluknight is suffering live on Twitter but I have had zero effects I could not more easily assign to jet lag...

          Evil and I are so damn sick right now. I was supposed to go back to work on Wednesday. That didn't happen, nor did it happen today, and I've got a bad feeling about tomorrow too. Evil seems to have been hit with a double whammy of full blown DEFCON AIDS *and* food poisoning.

          This year's cold is on par with that year we all got some variant of swine flu at the Riviera. At this point I think we need an old priest and a young priest.

          I return whatever i wish . Its called FREEDOWM OF RANDOMNESS IN A HECK . CLUSTERED DEFEATED CORn FORUM . Welcome to me

            Filtered water/stevia/lemon or lime juice/1/4 sea salt. Chug. Do it again.

            Hug evil for me. Have her hug me for you if she can bear your sweaty self.

              That's almost the formula I use at con to avoid the con crud. I've avoided it for two years now by drinking STRONG lemon water. This year I modified it by adding powdered iced tea and liquid stevia. The combo works and i didn't need to supplement my caffeine.

              I was going through almost 1 giant bottle of straight lemon juice a day.

              Totally using this mix again next year.

                I have a vicious cough and I'll start wheezing during any form of moderate athletic activity. I think it's just my lungs trying to expel all of the recycled casino air.

                  Y'know, the fact that I'm entertaining the masses makes my suffering better. ;)

                    i rarely get sick in general, and con crud tends to avoid me or be pretty mild... but this year i actually feel especially good in spite of pushing my body harder than i have in most years past.

                    with all the talk of lemon juice, i wonder if that played a part. i did more singing than ever before, and was pounding tea with honey and lemon a lot of the time. that, plus a huge amount of water* every time i laid down for a few hours may have done the trick.

                    * fun note - as i've tweeted and such, one of the best part of running the DEFCON Shoot nowadays is the fact that the huge water jug comes back to my hotel room afterwards. it lives permanently on Lady Merlin's side of the bed at the Rio and all through the con we have unlimited refills whenever we lay down for a few hours. makes a world of difference.

DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                      It actually sounds like so many people have caught some variant of the same awful crud, I suspect something may have come through the casino's air system for it to have such a wide area effect. The varying degrees of effect would of course be modified by each individuals personal shield methods but the vector sounds like the casino. Remember the AP and the pool not being filtered all weekend?

                        Those color charts are followed to a T when deployed overseas and in basic training. We had many a people pissing dark yellow or bown and immediately getting an IV to ensure they didn't dehydrate and or die.


                        As for the con crud, I think I'm MOSTLY over it....right now I'm just waking up feeling like ass and coughing up flem most of the day.

                          For the first time in several years, Neil & i Both escaped it. So did my kid, who I was worried about cause so many people stopped by to say hi to him. :-)

                            Yeah, saw this first hand...seemed to be working well.

                            I just need to know how to get my voice from insta-fading.

                              Yep, Defcon AIDS got me good this year, I was down for 6 days (It fortunately only started the moment I arrived home, would've been a hellish 14 hrs of flying otherwise). Colleague got it too but to a lesser degree. This was the first year I've tried eating healthy stuff at DC, so I'll blame it on that.
