Public service announcement for those that own a pool or are planning on swimming in treated water!!! Article will be at the end of the post.

Paraphrasing the article, this parasite is hard to kill, and resilient in treated water. Symptoms are diahhrea and the symptoms of GID (Gastrointestinal Disorder). This parasitee has killed one person already and about 3000 have gone to the doctor because of it.

First rule of fight club: don't panic. Second rule of fight club: don't panic. Third rule: check with your primary care provider if you feel it's necessary.

Pretty much what I have to offer here. Nevertheless, thanks for the notice Air Marshall.

I went swimming twice this week and went to three Vegas pool parties last week. I am doomed.
