Losers get H1N1. Maybe the winners, too.

RPI sent out a campus update this afternoon about H1N1. From the email, which was posted by RPInsider (emphasis added):

Our caseload is still low, but it is steadily growing. It is important to note that we have linked several of the cases to specific social events on campus, such as football games and weekend parties. Please, especially during such events, remember to continue to wash your hands, avoid close contact with others, and NEVER share cups or utensils. Remember, you can get the flu from someone who does not yet appear to be ill.
Unfortunately, some of our current cases were apparently contracted during a weekend drinking game. Do not share drinks. Alcohol does not kill the virus or prevent its spread from person to person. While it might seem fun over the weekend, it will not be enjoyable when you and your friends are sick and missing class or midterm examinations.

Keep that in mind before your next beer pong match.

Hahaha! That's hilarious.

Yeah, but who won the game?

My sister once got mono from flippy cup. This crap is for reals.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

All Over Albany is for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. In other words, it's for you. It's kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who can help you find out what's up. Oh, and our friends call us AOA.
