The Common Cold
This PFFT! is aimed squarely at medical researchers. They can come up with all kinds of interesting theories about why people catch colds, and how they are spread... hell, they even tell us what happens in our little finger when we sneeze. So how come they can tell us all that, yet still not come up with a decent prevention method?
PFFT! I'm looking forward to the day when I can walk the city streets on a cold January morning and not have to dodge out of the way of snotty little children and their equally snotty mothers sneezing every which way.
In fact, I think this PFFT! goes mostly to the medical researcher I know. Rebecca, if you are reading this, put that cup of coffee down, get off your (ever expanding) butt and do some research, dammit! Stop the annual epidemic of the common cold sweeping the nation, and improve our lives no end! Please!
The sanity of a nation depends on it. If not the nation, then just me.
