I was watching the news tonight & this pesky ailment is spreading via vegetables including carrots and lettuce. I'd guess if lettuce can spread God's punishment on the vegans, tobacco leaf could too.

This critter isn't just a food poisoning, "Genetically, the pathogen causing plague, Y. pestis, is very similar to Y. pseudotuberculosis. The plague appears to have evolved from Y. pseudotuberculosis about 1500 to 20,000 years ago.[" - Wikipedia.

    @josie. What about the rats? They spread plague, they could probably spread Y. pseudotuberculosis when they are having their morning showers.



    One of the scariest things I've ever seen was a (pet) rat running across the floor towards cover with a lit cigarette in its mouth. I never left another lit cigarette in the ashtray in that flat again.

    I dropped out of proggraming, I just couldn't gauge the syntax of writing code for certain c# programs so now I work in Mental Health sector. LoL I've got my just juice bottle to ward off any of those plagues, that and a new faith in Jesus (former celebrity carpenter turned miracle healer. :)

    @ josienz1958,



    Those rats were real sweeties. Once when I had 'flu one of them hopped up on the bed, sniffed me, then turned and ran off. "Great", I thought, "Even the rat doesn't want to know me". A minute or so later he was back, walked over to my hand, opened his mouth and dropped an uncooked piece of tapiocca in my hand ... he'd worked out I was sick & gone to his food bowl to get me a treat.



    OK, he didn't actually like the tapiocca, but probably figured that since I kept giving it to him I must.



    @Aimee.



    I have done. Will again, especially now I won't need to sneak out of the green room for a quick fag (and possibly a cigarette as well).

    Thanks Nana. It will be a while, I need to pluck up the courage and write a complete new set .. I don't want to do the one I used to do, too technical & if I lost the audience I had no way to recover.
