    The COLD VIRUS

    Discussion started by Frate_Raper - Mar 19, 2005

    How do you deal with it,how do you avoid it?


    Maybe I've had to much time on my hands being sick the last 3 days but I was thinking about the virus on the whole,we've never had a cure but were told it keeps evolving into stronger strains of the virus. Whens it going to even out if ever and whats it going to become?

    Will we still called it the cold and is this how other more serious illness start out?as the cold?


    I'm wasted on over the counters I maybe rambling

    the cold is an RNA virus, so its mutation rate is extremely high. in contrast, the flu is a DNA virus, which means it has a slower mutation rate, which is why we can create a flu vaccine, because we can predict to a certain degree how its going to change from one year to annother. With an RNA virus (HIV, the cold), it mutates too fast for us to create vaccines or cures that work.

    this is all off the top, so some facts might be slightly off.

    either way, feel better. smoking a blunt and drinking alot of nyquil made me trip out.

    then i vomited.

    edit - typo

    I heard somewhere (So this quite likely qould be completley wrong, so dont come crying to me if its wrong) that the cold could be cured, but the pharmaceutical companies would lose out on ALOT of money, because they would no longer need to make the drugs that help, ie: cold & flu tablets.

    get Airborne..you can buy it at walgreens/cvs/eckerd.

    knocks a cold out in a day or so. I've tried it, and it clears your head up almost immediately of congestion.

    sounds like it was ripped straight out of chris rock's aids theory. i wouldn't believe that for a second.

    and i second the vote for buying airborne. that shit'll clear you up in no time.

    It's good not to go outside or smoke pot or cigs or drink when you have a cold. I'm just getting over one I got from being at a hot, stinking, sweaty show and then going outside where it was 30 degrees out. Big mistake, should have brought a coat.

    I think the best thing is to prevent getting a cold in the first place, which means boosting your immune system
    ~drink alot of H20 daily.
    ~don't drink/do drugs daily/too often
    ~don't smoke cigarettes
    ~no smoking j's with a group of people.
    ~wash hands regularly

    But when i get a cold, it usually isn't too bad.
    If it is, I try to rest as much as possible and take some nyquil. that usually works.

    from what i understand there isn't just 1 common cold, there are millions of different strains.
    but once you get 1 you can't get that particular strain again.

    my $.02..
