Ultra-Contagious Pink Eye in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


My pink eye seems to be on the retreat which makes me happy. Lately I have been in hiding as I understand it is a pretty contagious disease. A friend reminded me of that fact and I assured them that yes, I have been washing my hands, not touching my eyes and not touching others as well.My Chinese friend then looked at me and sternly quipped, “NO that’s not all, you cant even stare at people.”
” i was like ????”
She goes, “If you look at them like this.” then stared at me, “You can also pass this illness on to them.”

Hmmm, I was like “So I can basically radiate this to them with no contact whatsoever, merely by the power of my gaze?”
She nodded, said her doctor said it was true, and a bbs corroborated it as well.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, this coming from a country where doctors tell you that “you have fire inside” and that is how you got it in the first place…(see previous post)
