H1N1 and You

I just took my on-line H1N1 training at work. It tells me that I can be contagious 1 day before symptoms develop. That means I should go home today because I might develop the symptoms tomorrow. Sounds good to me.

It also had a video teaching me how to wash my hands. How to wash my hands?!? If I ran the thing, the video would be short and sweet.
"If you don't know how to wash your hands by now, then you deserve to die. Thank you and goodbye."
Second, it told me to wash my hands for as long as it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice. Or the "Barack Hussein Obama Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm" song once, all the way through.

On the plus side, I learned how to sneeze properly.

Good Lord, I hope our ancestors aren't watching us right now.

ROFL. There'd be tears running down my face if this wasn't so damn tragic.

To misquote Ronald Reagan, they say you may be contagious one day before you show symptoms. But I say, why take the chance? Suppose it's two days? Or a week?

I'm staying home until I get the swine flu. After that, I'll know I'm not contagious.
