Re: Do you get your flu shot?

I've never had one. My wife and son have gotten it a few times during other doctor visits around that time of year. I couldn't tell you the last time that I, or anyone in my family have had the flu.

I still will never understand how Facebook became some type of thing. Looking forward to it becoming as relevant as MySpace.

It's from Nero. But it's bad, and in defense of Maddon, from a man that is supposed to be representing him.
