I have pets and I rarely get sick. I also skip on flu shots. I understand the need for vaccination though if you are in the danger-zone or vaccination for particularity nasty buggers, but the average flu? Nah.
This little bugger however, doesn't look like the common cold or flu, it's a nastier, so I would consider vaccination of this depending on just how virulent/lethal it is.
Funny that: "College students whose musical preferences are alternative, rock or heavy metal actually obtain higher IQ test scores on average, particularly on questions where abstraction is required (Walker & Kreiner, 2006)."
Why would someone which we were unique?! That would be a horrible waste of space then, this universe & all. This need of some people to have a maker... I've never understood it and I'll never will, it defies logic. Let's not discuss this further, I don't want to start a holy, err, flame war here;)
Why do I get the feeling you're one of them Christians? Why must we always assume that if there is intelligent life out there that it would inevitably come visit us? The sheer size of the universe boggles our minds, who knows, maybe FTL travel really is impossible.
