I agree, but it is the rhetoric. people debate that gun violence went up in britain after illegalization…true, then they add that aggrevated assault went up for the same reason. Aggrevated assualt doesn’t mean “gun violence”, and the “uncautious” reader would get easily confused.
How come you didn’t include a “I don’t give a crap who signs up here as long as they don’t grate my nuts” option? You don’t have to be wolf or a hen to not have an opinion on other members of the community.
I bet that option would get the most votes.
But if you don’t give a crap, then you’re not likely to vote at all 😄
Basically the same things that result in asthma exacerbations (i.e. that cause worse asthma symptoms) are the things found to increase so dramatically in the bird flu virus.
When people with asthma are exposed to certain “triggers” - molds, dust, pollen, cats, cigarette smoke, etc. they may experience a sudden worsening of symptoms. This is because “inflammatory mediators” - i.e. chemicals which are supposed to protect us from disease - increase pathologically. This causes the airways to become smaller and for mucus secretion which causes the airflow to slow considerably. This is asthma in a nutshell.
With the bird-flu virus, many of these inflammatory mediators are increased dramatically as well. This may result in severe respiratory symptoms as the airways narrow causing difficulty in breathing.
This is why i considered that steroids might be useful here as - yes Mary - they are immune suppressants.
I hope that this clears up the fog, and again my apologies.
First edition was okay in its day, but ‘Feats’ RULE!!, 3rd edition all the way… (I’m not hearing a lot of good comments about 4.0 apparently its just being made to make money for wizards, they’ll stop making stuff for 3.5 , forcing gamers to shell out hundreds of pounds for new books, and its all apparently geared towards getting people to use the minatures… AD&D is now a business more than ever… not much room for roleplayers in it anymore ! 😢)
…sure the system falls apart at about 15th lvl+ and ‘Epic’ is completely unplayable, but at low to mid level its a lot of fun and your characters get tons of options., I could never go back to playing first… no way.
