    Meningitis vaccines urged before NYC Pride events

    Maybe a good thing for Pride-goes in other cities to consider as well?

    What are your thoughts?

    ... and don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for someone dropping off a knapsack or backpack next to a post or within the crowd ... if you see someone trying to do just that, don't be afraid to shove it up is ass

    lol, I seen people doing that at pride all last weekend. Well, not actually dropping them off and leaving but passing them over fences. I'm sure non of them were bombs, just Jagger Bombs lol.

    I'd freak out too if someone left a backpack next to me.

    Is meningitis still transmitted if people are practicing safe sex? I suppose rimming counts as safe sex but to my thinking rimming and eating shit off a plate are essentially the same thing with respect to infection.

    It's transmitted by more casual contact than that. That's why it notoriously spreads through dormitories.

    Young guy here just got it last week and died about two days later. icon_sad.gif

    Ok, thanks. Sounds like what we worried about when I was in the Navy. Back then I think it was called spinal meningitis. Or maybe it was spiral meningitis, I was never sure. I may have even had a vaccine for it when in boot camp; we got a ton. Even one for the bubonic plague/black death.
