>There is a pretty nasty stomach flu bug going around Sacramento.  It’s really the Norwalk virus or Norovirus.

Of course, some geniuses hear the word “flu” and instantly think if you’d have gotten a flu shot, you wouldn’t have gotten sick.

Um no, think again there Jonas Salk.  There are in fact two different things with the word flu attached to the symptoms.  One seems like a really bad cold that knocks you out fast.  The other makes you lose 5 pounds in 24 hours because you are barfing up everything you’ve eaten or attempt to eat.

Of course, I’m of a mind that those supposed flu shots don’t work for influenza anyway, but that’s neither here nor there.  I mean it’s a virus right?  I thought viruses mutated so fast that a vaccine was pointless.
