...it has killed every pathogen it's been tested on, and w/o any side effects or resistance buildup. Avail from the patent holder (US Pat 7135195) American Biotech Labs in Utah. 

Got me over my Lyme in 3 days, kills 17 kinds of strep & staph including the MRSA superbug, totally safe. I always use it on a flight.

Could be.  I thought her name was Genevieve, though.  So many women, so little time...  Don't tell my wife!  Seriously, I'm going to have to look up those books!  Great stuff, not just for the naughty bits.  Somebody I knew in high school had a German one as well.  Should be able to find them on the Internet.  Best to you!

@Jim...that's incredible!  I also had a gimmick - "Francais Parle par Adrienne" (sorry, difficult to do accents on my keyboard) where Adrienne was a long haired good looking girl on a mortorbike - is that the same one you had?   It WAS a great book.  But the strange thing is I also lent it to someone and did not get it back!  Those books obviously have itchy feet!

Touche!  Thanks for the corrections; my French is a bit rusty.  I seem to remember one of the Gimmick book series with all (and I do mean all) the slang terms from French included.  That's where I got my information.  Where that most amusing and informative book ended up, I'm not sure.  I think I lent it to somebody and never got it back.  Zut-alors!

@JimFord....for an American you are unusually well-informed, I am impressed :-)  However it is Capote Anglaise (although it goes on the male member, it is feminine so the anglaise gets an e on the end.  And if you want a number of them, both words get the s: Capotes Anglaises.  They are also good at protecting against certain kinds of dreaded lurgies!

@David Ashton - Yes, this American knows what a french letter is!  Same thing as a chapote anglais (english cap)!  And it does not go on your head (not your cranium, anyway)!  For those not in the know, it's a condom.

@DWILSON: ...I think the airplane food attacked me when I was returning to the states from Beijing.  My digestive track is still feeling the effects from the Wednesday afternoon flight.

You don't realize how big your tummy is until it starts to hurt -- then it seems HUGE. And there's not much worse than having tummy troubles while being trapped on an airplane

I just returned from a trip to Korea and China.  On the Chinese portion of the trip I saw several people in public transportation spaces (airports, train stations, on the train and on aircraft) wearing masks.  The number would be far less than 1% of those I saw.  In China and Korea, announcements were made and screenings were performed to attempt to find any sick individuals entering the country.  Ebola is a big concern in both countries.  China had posted signs about the bird flu.

I think we tend to take feeling well for granted ... until we don't feel well. Hopefully you are starting to feel a little better now -- I know I'm ready for the weekend!!!

Is the dreaded lurgy transmissible by blog?

As you know, Max, I have been laid up the past few days with someting that resembles the dreaded lurgy, although in my case,the gastro-intestinal tract doesn't seem to be affected (I have claimed possession of a cast-iron stomach for many years).  As I have not taken an air flight for several weeks, but have been assiduously present on these blogs, I wonder....

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
