Fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics

"Given the misery that these drugs cause their victims..."

Referring to prescription drugs like the Fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics?
Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox should be taken off the market, and the FDA knows it!

My late wife spent a year crawling around the house on a construction skate board like thing, so her ankles would heal the tendon damage caused by Levaquin!

Prescription drugs kill and injure more people than the ones being fought against in the "war on drugs".

@antedeluvian: Whilst we are on the subject of germ transmission- take a look at these sneezes

I'd heard about this research, but seeing the videos is scary -- it makes you not want to get close to anyone ever again!

@seaEE: So basically you are saying that if this video were made today, it would be all fist bumps...

Or elbow bumps if Antedeluvian's mother got her hands on them first :-)

@David: The death penalty is warranted for this I reckon.

Origin of the High Five

It's funny how things work sometimes -- just yesterday (only a day or so after publishing this blog) I heard another report on the NPR talking about the origin of the High Five.

It seems they can tie the actual date down to October 1977 in the Dodger's Baseball Stadium when young player Glenn Burke exuberantly ran onto the field to congratulate his teammate Dusty Baker for scoring a wicket or a field goal or something (I'm not all that familiar with American sports).

According to the Wikipedia: "Burke raised his hand over his head as Baker jogged home from third base. Not knowing what to do about the upraised hand, Baker slapped it."

According to the NPR program, the reporters started talking about it and writing about it and the word spread. In fact, believe it or not, the Dodgers even trademarked the High Five.

I learn something new every day...

Given the misery that these drugs cause their victims and the rest of the human race in close proximity, it's time for the west to toughen up a bit.  Does the human race really need the guys who sell this stuff?  The death penalty is warranted for this I reckon.

@Garcia: All I can say is that, after watching the videos on TV...

Oh great -- you had to find a report about a British Tourist -- couldn't you have found one about someone from a country no one likes ... like France, for example? LOL
