Flesh-Eating Bugs Can Be Spread By Coughing, Sneezing and Hugging
"Coughing and sneezing on crowded trains and buses can spread deadly flesh-eating superbugs, commuters are being warned.
The bacteria are more virulent than the infamous hospital MRSA, can affect otherwise healthy people and are spreading across Britain.
They can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact and hugging as well as sneezing and coughing."
Commuters who travel by bus or subway have to deal with pickpockets, homeless who stink to high heaven, the threat of terrorism, thugs, cranky bus drivers, jerks playing loud music, morons eating stinky food, a hundred and one stops, chatty Cathys, farting old coots, stale air, psychos, bawling babies, giggling schoolgirls, and freaks who can`t keep their hands to themselves.
Now hapless commuters also have to deal with a new strain of MRSA that can be spread by sneezing. I never (ever) travel by bus, but if I were forced at gunpoint to ride the bus, and a passenger sneezed, instead of telling him "God bless you", I would damn him straight to hell.
Taking the bus to work, instead of driving, may be the politically-correct thing to do, but I`d rather be politically-incorrect but healthy.
The basic human instinct is to stay alive and healthy, avoid buses and subways like the plague!
