:: Consumption On Board :: June 2, 2007

My friends, describe the chest X-Ray. 😛

 Click HERE for answer.

‘Consumption’ is an old name for Tuberculosis (TB) , or so I read. One of ‘Today’s Hot Post’ had a story on a man who contracted TB of a very dangerous strain. When I was a kid, my idea of someone with TB is for them to cough up blood. However, that is not the case for Andrew Speaker, a 31 year old personal injury lawyer. He may be well with no symptoms but to have a man boarding flights to all parts of the world with such condition, it comes to no surprise that it’ll ring alarm bells. I’m glad he is now quarantined. If he was to live in the times of the Roman empire, he might have to bath in human urine as part of the experimental cure. I am sure all the other passengers in the plane would happily volunteer to piss on him.

Is that from smoking too much?

nope.. to get TB, you’d have to get it from somebody who has it
