and if I do, I've just given it to my bf. I caught it off one of his friends as well. how far away are the general elections?

Cruddy

Had it. It's bloody awful.

A few weeks - you should be OK by then.

The older you are, the more dangerous it is, I think. Just like glandular fever.

Cruddy

It can sterilise male adults.

You should be young enough to have been immunised.

Cruddy
14-04-2005, 00:40:33
Being immunised reduces your chances of catching a disease. It's not 100%.

Oerdin

I don't think I've ever had the mumps though I'm sure I was immunized. Probably need a booster shot.

I had mumps many many years ago, Not fun. But it will be worse for you bf. He's likley to be rather "sensitive"...

Funko
14-04-2005, 09:51:17
Best think is to catch it when you are a kid. That's what I did.

why didn't you kiddies catch mumps as a child? grow up in a bubble or something?

Venom
14-04-2005, 13:15:21
I actively sought out diseases as a child.

YEs, having no genitals would have been OK. What a cruel disease.

In italia it's "orecchioni" = "big ears"
It's one of the few I missed, IIRC...
Stand your distance, alsie... (although it's not like I figure any fertilisation activity on my part in the future...)

who ALSO became a fictional character in literature, or am I mistaken?

A Referring to that character as an "f" is a common mistake; it is properly referred to as a "leading s" or "long s", and it is often used in words which are today spelled with a single "s". If you examine the character closely, you will see that the cross stroke appears only on the left side of the upright, instead of on both sides as with a regular "f". Our ancestors were accustomed to this character and thus had little difficulty telling it apart from a regular "f". It is difficult to determine how people spoke before recording technology was developed, but there is no reason to think this character was pronounced any differently from a regular "s".
Incidentally, the "leading s" is not an element of Old English. You would have to trace your ancestry quite far back indeed before you'd ever need to use records written in Old English. Old English was spoken from about 450 to 1100 AD, gradually becoming extinct after the Norman Conquest in 1066. Norman-influenced Middle English was spoken from about 1100 to 1450. Modern English began to develop in the 15th and 16th centuries, though 16th-century English hardly seems modern to us today. The "leading s" was in common use until the middle of the 19th century.

Don't be so smug. It isn't that obvious.

Funko
14-04-2005, 14:57:38
It's obvious enough that you worked it out... :hmm:

I'm not sure because I got just about everything else. Come to think of it I don't remember any of my friends getting mumps either. Same thing with measles. I did get chicken pox but it was just a tiny case with only a few pox while my older sister got covered in pox.

14-04-2005, 18:34:48
I didn't

I don't think I know anyone else who got it either

did get chicken poxs though...

Got 'em as a late teenager. I was on my back for a week.

Lots of folks here haven't had mumps.

YLLB!

For all of the other problems with our health care system the US does have one hell of a childhood immunization program. The list of immunizations children get before starting school is impressive.

14-04-2005, 18:43:24
I think most people int he US are immune...
