Sick.

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Sick.

Freaking stomach virus. Never again will I eat at "Papa Chow". Tastes terrible on the way up.

So last night around 3 AM as I was puking for the 6th or 7th time that day it struck me how similarly the human body and computers deal with a virus. I caught myself comparing my puke with temporary internet files. :vomit1: I had to stop and ask myself "wtf is your problem".

I just realized how much of a freaking geek I am. :helpme:

I think I'm getting better...temp back to normal and no more puking. Just pushing fluids and saltine crackers now. :breakfast:

Yeap...sounds like food poisoning.....at least you didnt have "angry bum" too :shock:

and I constantly use computer metaphors when trying to explain technology to non tech persons.

It is a sign of being a true geek :mrgreen:

Good to hear you are starting to feel better :good:

Glad you're feeling better :D Haven't been sick like that in a long time ( puking that is ), and don't want to be, not a pleasant experience.

I never puke with illness, drink yes, but never illness.

It's always the ring of fire and as it happens you can't stop Johnny Cash ringing through your head

I went down,down,down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns,burns,burns
the ring of fire
the ring of fire. :angry1:

A friend of mine took his fiancee camping out in the bush here in NZ.
On the second day, he eat something that violently disagreed with his intestines.
somewhere in the middle of the night he awoke with a strong overwhelming desire to throw up.
Urgent would only partially describe the need.

he got on his knees, crawled forward to the fly of the tent, Fumbled with the zip, it got stuck, he fumbled some more, finaly opens it.

Has enough time to get his shoulders out of the tentflap and throws up whilst on his hands and knees, his naked ass pointing back at his fiancee.

I mention this as this is the point at which he vigourously sh*ts every where.

everywhere

e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.

Strangely enough they are still married.

I think it took me a week to stop laughing at that one.

Can you imaging the screaming, explosive wet farting, more screaming, apologies, puking , farting, more screaming.

And if you're camping in the wilds, no access to running water.

To be fair his wife is a very cool gal and one not without a strong caring streak and sense of humour.

(I admit to being hesitant to post this as well due to the deeply gross nature of the subject matter)

but if you were in a highly populated campsite it may have produced other issues :mrgreen:
How did you come to that conclusion?

It's really one of the funniest things I've ever read.

You must tell your friend and his wife how funny I found the story about them in the tent.

Or maybe not.
