Today I'm going in to the doctors office.
I have to get my 7th shot in 3 months.
Noooo, I'm not a sicko.
I have to get my tuberculosis shot so I can start my job.

I'm getting a job. It pays a bunch of money, and the boss likes me :)
Can you guess what I'm going to do?
Take a wild shot at it...
Yes, it does have something to do with water...
Yes, it does involve swimming...
Yes, It involves little people...
Yes, it is a job where I teach little people how to swim in the water...
No, I will not be doing that the first day...
I'll probably be guarding the first day, but hey! Getting paid for standing around watching cute little people annoy my sister isn't exactly a horrible.

But yeah, back to the TB.
Here are some facts about the actual disease that might surprise you...

alright so I spent 10 minutes looking for TB facts and the only semi-interesting one I found was that Edgar Allan Poe died from it.

I have no clue what's interesting about TB.
Do any of you know any interesting facts? About any fatal disease?

Come on,

enlighten me :)


  1. OK. I got this off of Wikipedia, so don't label me as a geek :o)

    Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB for tubercle bacillus or Tuberculosis) is a common and often deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria, mainly Mycobacterium tuberculosis [1]. Tuberculosis usually attacks the lungs (as pulmonary TB) but can also affect the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the circulatory system, the genitourinary system, the gastrointestinal system, bones, joints, and even the skin. Other mycobacteria such as Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium africanum, Mycobacterium canetti, and Mycobacterium microti also cause tuberculosis, but these species are less common.

    Hope this helped :)

  2. Any fatalistic disease? Well, many fatalistic diseases such as autism, have been linked to taking vaccinations. But that normally happens to little tiny kids (such as the people you'll be teaching), so you should be good. If you ever want to have a long (and somewhat pointless) discussion about vaccines and antibiotics in general, let me know.

    By the way, the new blog format looks much better. Good job.

  3. Yeah! My mom was telling me about that!!

    Actually, medicine fascinates me. My many doctors have me on a ton of drugs because of my severe asthma. So a discussion might be of some use to me! haha

    Thank you, after I changed the background I realized how much of a difference it made...

  4. There was a guy a couple of years ago who got on a plane with TB and had to be quarentined or something. It was a bug news scare because he could have infected all of the other passengers on the plane.

  5. Yeah!!!! I remember that now!!!!


Commenting? I'll reply :)

Yes, even if you don't want me too ;)

And remember... I can read your comments, so I can delete them if I don't like you...

Oh and keep it clean... or my buds from the Secret Service might come down and have to "talk" to you.
