Good evening, Lizards.
Serious question: do any of you know the incubation period for swine flu, or whatever the period between exposure and the onset of symptoms is called?

All the Chinese practitioners I know have stocked up on their anti-viral formulas. They’ve already dosed me up with one, and they’re insisting I insufflate (another great word!) this one herbal formula. Supposed to keep back heat and damp, and reduce possibility of viral infection, etc. Some evidence to suggest, at least in the case of SARS and other flu outbreaks, that these formulas work, but I hate sniffing this brown powder (it burns! it burns!) every couple of hours.
