Thread: I have found a cure for the common cold.

  1. #1

    I have found a cure for the common cold.

    SCI.

    Since gaining an SCI in April 2007 I have not had a cold. Nothing.

    I used to get like 2+ per year, and I cannot remember the last one I got. I have recommended SCI's to all my friends, I even keep a hammer handy if anyone wants to try it.

    Is it just me???

    Back in the olden days, we used to take vitamin C and Mandelamine as an antibacterial for the bladder. When I gave up the Mandelamine, I kept taking the huge dose of vitamin C. I rarely have a cold.

    Before recommending Quadrilization, I'd try the vitamin C first.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Hmmmm...that's strange. Perhaps you need another SCI....but higher?

    Ok, I am probably jinking myself, but. Same here.

    They says hands are the biggest culprit in spreading the common cold .... maybe wheeling, we pick up so much dirt from our wheels it kills all the cold germies?

    I was thinking the opposite......I wash my hands so much more now with all those IC's. Although I still could represent my country at nose-picking....so.....


    Hey - glad to hear I'm not alone with this "miracle cure"...!

    I got a bad cold this year, and even though I had a flu shot, the flu too (but it was fairly mild).

    My first guess would be you are less exposed to germs.

    Maybe you are out of school now compared to before.

    Less exposed to germs? Yes, this is possibly the reason.

    Certainly before my SCI I used to kiss the girls, and if there's one thing we ALL know about girls, it's that they carry ALL kinds of germs. After my SCI this became much less of a problem, also because I snagged one of these girls and married her*. So, far I have stayed quite faithful, so less exposure to germs could definately be the reason.....???






    * - FYI Once I got an SCI all the girls cleared off. The only one that stayed believed me when I told her I needed the wheelchair due to a double-achilles heel surgery. We married and it's been almost 3 years now and I think she is starting to have her suspicions.....

    That was all BS btw...I was never any good with girls and my wife is FAR more intelligent than me.
