The results of this poll are so depressing and dumb that I keep thinking I've wandered into the Bears thread by mistake.

Why would I, a Julliard-trained dermatologist, give you bad advice about getting the flu shot?

Re: Food Monstrosities

Oh, I've had plenty of awesome duck dishes. If you find a good Thai place that nails a crispy duck platter, GET IT. But even at a takeout place, duck costs a ton more, like it's some kind of fancy bird instead of just a nasty water pigeon with a murderous corkscrew dick.

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

It is pretty crazy when you think about how Twitter and Instagram basically have scores of users without being users. With Facebook, you have to jump through enough hoops to see a FB page that ultimately you're going to likely end up having a FB page of your own (I remember there being a really larg...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

Nobody's saying that Twitter has more users than Facebook; Facebook is by far the top of the social networking heap. jersey's dismissal of Twitter like it's basically Friendster, however, was odd, given that it does have a very big user base (and clearly played a huge role in the 2016 election), and...

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

Long story short: it was due to pretty extensive family history on my mom's side, and apparently colorectal cancer rates in people younger than 40 have been going through the roof, and people should really start doing it by 45 at the latest instead of 50. Good news, though! My colon is apparently li...

Re: Food Monstrosities

It's weird that duck generally has a rep as a classy food bird, when they're such gross trash monsters.

And what was up with Victorian folks acting like eating a goose was a big deal? I imagine a cooked goose tastes like a spiteful bagpipe filled with greasy poop.

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

Do you live near a CVS?

Walgreens?

Does your grocery store have a pharmacy?

Odds are they have been offering flu shots for free or very cheap (plus gift card/store credit!) for at least a couple weeks now. No doctor visit needed!

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

I got mine just last week and just like every other time I get one it led to me getting sick about 2 hours later and spending the rest of the next day and a half sleeping and feeling otherwise miserable. I'm starting to wonder if it's even worth it. This is probably the most common line of thought ...

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

The fear of side effects, or "getting the flu" from the flu shot, are big sticking points for people. A lot of people do feel rundown or a little sick the day they get a flu shot, or even for 1-2 days after. This can be for a number of reasons! It can psychosomatic; it can be that the pers...

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. Not that that's a good reason for not having gotten one. I just rarely go to the doctor...I don't ge...

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

Yeah, even if you don't manifest the symptoms, people can carry the damn virus and give it to others if they haven't had the shot.

Please get your flu shot, folks.

Do you get your flu shot?

If not....why the hell not?

I'm distressed at the sheer number of people in my office who say they don't get the flu shot for a variety of awful, awful reasons. Please get your flu shot (unless you're one of the very people who can't or shouldn't for valid medical issues).
