    Because you were suggesting that having germs on your hands is more likely to cause a cold. I would have thought getting the bug into the respiratory system is the big thing.

    Nah, the cold virus doesn't normally spread by inhalation. You get sick when it comes into direct contact with the mucus linings on your eye and nose. A little counter-intuitive, I know.

    As the person out of the two of us that is actually in South Korea I can honestly say yes they do.

    They don't say 'Here Aussie' though, it'd take them another year and a half's worth of English lessons to get to that point. They don't just cough in my face, they cough in everyone's faces. It's a cultural thing, they don't cover their mouths with anything usually. On rare occasions someone does, but not often.

    Lets not also forget that in this country everyone lives practically on top of each other. You're constantly in close proximity to those around you. On a number of occasions people have coughed in my face walking in the street, and I'd assume that if you're close enough to feel their breath when they do it it's no different to coughing into your hand when it comes to spreading germs.

    Anyway, swine flu has hit my school apparently. Although they're not sure yet, it could just be a bad cold. And 30 students at another school have it. The brilliant plan to halt its progress!? Close schools for a week. But I'm betting the after-school academies won't close because they're a business, so it'll solve 1/100th of **** all haha Not sure what difference a week'll make myself. But then it's been described as being a 'bit like a bad cold' by a doctor here my girlfriend knows so...

    I just don't want to catch anything before I'm on that plane back to Oz! haha

    Just so poor. Listening to morning djs is right up there with stabbing myself in the ear drum repeatedly.

    Except sadly Im about as mainstream as one can get... music these stations play in between their very special collection of early 90s hits. Ill just to stick to the occasional CD and battle on, sigh.

    Good CD's alternating with the odd channel surf is the way to go imo.

    Haven't voluntarily listened to music on a radio since my middle years in high school.

    EDIT: Also, will be in Cairns for NYE. Watch your back 3p.

    Washing Machines


    FFFFUUUUUU

    Just went downstairs to get my stuff out of the machine, only to have the handle snap off in my arm, meaning that my clothes are now trapped inside the frigging thigh...gah! Bet the landlord will love me for this.
