I recently had a blood screen that showed that my Toxoplasmosis has reactivated ten years after my last positive test

I just wrote a bloody thesis about it, in an attempt to explain why I'm not wanting to take on more hours to my employers. I hope they take it on board, and don't assume I'm a lazy tart.

It turns out I didn't need to write the thesis after all. They're not wanting me to take on extra hours, just to shuffle them a bit. Whew!

What's gross?

Gross parts highlighted:
Quote:
Transmission may occur through:

Ingestion of raw or partly cooked meat, especially pork, lamb, or venison containing Toxoplasma cysts. Infection prevalence in countries where undercooked meat is traditionally eaten, such as France, has been related to this transmission method. Oocysts may also be ingested during hand-to-mouth contact after handling undercooked meat, or from using knives, utensils, or cutting boards contaminated by raw meat.[8]
Ingestion of contaminated cat faeces. This can occur through hand-to-mouth contact following gardening, cleaning a cat's litter box, contact with children's sandpits, or touching anything that has come into contact with cat faeces.
Drinking water contaminated with Toxoplasma.
Transplacental infection in utero.
Especially that last one. Admit it - your real mother was a sick cat.

Yes, those are both gross. My mother likes South Park, but I wouldn't call her sick, and she's certainly not a pussy.

Are you sure that your actual (biological) mother was not a cat which ate another cat's poo? You can never be too careful about these things. It would explain a few things as well...

Would you prefer dirty paws?

Seriously though, I probably got it from undercooked BBQ.

I'm glad that was a 'p'...

I eat steak rare to medium-rare, so it's the most likely explanation.

as far as i am aware, all hormonal contraception methods have a failure rate even with perfect use...

all women are different, with different levels of hormones, body sizes, etc

perhaps for you personally it will work 100%,
but there is ample evidence that sometimes contraception does fail...

so i guess i agree with your statement 99.5%
and thats pretty good.

This is the exception rather than the rule. I've no idea why you would go to such lengths to keep going on about something which is clearly a minority occurence and not even relevant to the topic at hand (careless teens popping out babies) but I suspect it's because a) you think you're this really smart, against-the-grain, coming-from-leftfield guy who is always coming up with stuff that nobody else has thought of and b) you're a douche.

lol, chill ccs

no.
the motive for my original post was that chiquelet suggested she believed in contraception 100%

i just wanted her to think about that
...and perhaps avoid an unplanned pregnancy

3 of the women on our antenatal ended up with unplanned pregnancies
(although 2 of them were not taking the pill because they wrongly believed that you couldnt get pregnant whilst breastfeeding.)

despite what you may think
most of my posts are not trolls
but just a genuine different opinion

And your method for doing that is acting like a cumbag? You could always enquire as to her train of thought (much like I did) rather than take her words at absolute face value.

Like I said - exception to the rule. Talking about the exception for the rule doesn't merit discussion, which is why I believe you have this compulsion to always show people up.

Also, those 2 women who weren't taking the pill because they thought you can't get pregnant while breastfeeding are clearly stupid, so it's perhaps not even worth mentioning them...

I don't think you're deliberately being a douche, I think you're a natural douche and you just don't realise it.
Again - you say it's opinion, but I say you're just trying to show people up.

But what if there's a natural disaster and all the contraceptive sponge factories are ruined and there's rapists on the loose!!!

I still can't get over how awesome Jean Michel Jarre's music is, after a lifetime of listening to it.

Oxygen 4 is like the most memorable track of my childhood. Anyone that likes Jarre is awesome in my books

Did you get the new album btw?

The most recent I've listened to is Oxygene 7-13 ( unless you count Aero ). I'll have to check out some of the newer stuff.

The 48 Film Festival screening was last night at Reading

I was blown away at how awesome the video my brother-in-law made with his friends was. The audience was roaring with laughter and clapping. It was great!

And kinda cool to see Mish and I up there being part of it

you are mistaking your lifeview as some sort of objective reality. For a great many people this is just not true.
