Also, for the love of god, do not go to medical if you think you have this and say it, because they will ship you to Mass. General and you won't make it out alive. If that happens, you will stop speaking to DOOMCom and dye your hair blue and cut it short and refuse to wear shirts.

I saw that girl in Building 32 the other day. She was wearing a shirt, however.

I don't believe that for a second. I think she only owns one shirt, and it is really just 1/3rd of a t-shirt ripped apart and tied back together.

Now we're importing swine flu to Boston?

We're doomed.

Dear Members of the Harvard Community:

I am writing to update you about the cluster of nine possible cases of H1N1 influenza at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. In consultation with city and state public health authorities, we have suspended clinical activities and classes at the Dental School through May 6. We have also suspended clinical activities and classes at Harvard Medical School because of their close contact with Dental students. This step was necessary because Dental and Medical students come into contact with patients who would be vulnerable to infection. Thus far, no cases have been reported in other Schools.

Our most recent information is that all nine of the Dental students with flu symptoms are recovering well.

Concern about the possible H1N1 influenza cases at the Dental School have been widely expressed, and many have asked what the Harvard Community should do to respond to the flu outbreak. Because flu spreads easily it is important that you do not come to work or class if you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Instead, you should see your primary care physician or come directly to University Health Services (UHS). The experience to date is that the H1N1 flu is highly treatable within 48 hours of symptoms.

To prevent the flu, the University Health Service recommends that you practice frequent hand-washing or use alcohol-based gels, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, and avoid close contact with people who are ill.

We will update the website as new information becomes available.

Sincerely,

Steven E. Hyman, M.D.
Provost, Harvard University


Yep, all of us are going to die, but at least it will start with Harvard.

Actually, apparently it started at MIT and then spread to Harvard, which actually decided to take action: http://tech.mit.edu/V129/N24/swineflu.html.

Really more of a boxturtle. imo.

Another in a long line of reasons why Harvard is better than MIT.

For example, each of their houses has a formal dance thing in the spring and fall, and they play non-R&B music for portions of the dance.

How do you know what kind of music they play? Did you crash one of their parties?

Harvard students are not just myths, and they can speak. Sometimes coherently. And less often, on the subject of their own house formals.

I refuse to believe that any of that is true.

How do you know any of this information is reliable? I mean, these are Harvard students.

Exactly. How do you know Harvard students didn't invent R&B music in the first place?
