Dumb.

I came across this page explaining how one self-diagnoses "whooping cough" (don't ask me why). There are four questions. All I want to know is why do they even put question number 1? I mean seriously who answers "no" to that?

People who are 121 years old.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

"..coughing fit longer than one minute for at least three weeks." Who has a coughing fit that last for three weeks?

The odds are good that anyone struggling with the first question won't be on the internet. All of those confusing buttons and shiny web pages, it'll be too much for them.

I hate getting even a minor cough because I'm such a hypochondriac. I'll cough once and think, "Uh-oh, mad cow disease, I'm screwed." Anyway. Hi.

Dada- I knew someone was gonna say that. But isn't the only 120+ year old like in Siberia and blind or something?

CBT- I expect nothing less of him.

JJ- well actually that's kinda why I was looking it up. But my cough went away the day after I looked this up, so maybe I'm okay.

Matt- That's what one would think. But maybe grandma Methusala of Siberia actually HAS whooping cough and a computer and is NOT blind. She will read that and assume she is home free cause it only affect young whipper snappers under the age of 120. She'll be dead in a week!
