I always find it interesting when these articles on increasingly antibiotic resistant bacteria don't even mention the fact that we have been feeding the animals we raise for food a steady stream of antibiotics in their diet for decades now.

Who can imagine where all these bacteria manage to develop a resistance to antibiotics, as if they are constantly in their presence?

What do you mean DNA can jump from one species of bacteria to another?

Drug-resistant gonorrhea I don't need to worry about.

Drug-resistant TB, or c-diff, or any number of other life-threatening diseases...one of them will probably carry me off, in the end.

On that side of a very depressing issue, 20 years ago when I was in High School, any student could walk into the nurses office and get condoms. Now they can't. Stupid stupid people makes me mad, teenagers have sex, always have always will.

Please note: the Drug resistant Gonorrhea you get in Vegas Maine will not actually stay in Vegas Maine.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibiot ic_resistance#In_medicine

Inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics has been attributed to a number of causes, including people who insist on antibiotics, physicians who simply prescribe them as they feel they do not have time to explain why they are not necessary, and physicians who do not know when to prescribe antibiotics or else are overly cautious for medical legal reasons.[28] For example, a third of people believe that antibiotics are effective for the common cold,[29] and the common cold is the most common reasons antibiotics are prescribed[30] even though antibiotics are completely useless against viruses.

Mommy and Daddy getting the doctor to prescribe high-dosage antibiotics to their kid because he has a few zits, instead of giving him a bar of soap, also aren't helping. I knew kids over a decade ago who were taking anti-biotics regularly for "acne". And I don't mean Rocky Dennis levels of face related wtf-ness. Just kids who had a few zits.

THIS.

Eighty percent of the antibiotics sold in the United States goes to chicken, pigs, cows and other animals that people eat, yet producers of meat and poultry are not required to report how they use the drugs - which ones, on what types of animal, and in what quantities. This dearth of information makes it difficult to document the precise relationship between routine antibiotic use in animals and antibiotic-resistant infections in people, scientists say.

Me neither. It's among the good points of being old, fat, crazy, ugly and too picky to take what I can get fairly easily and too poor to afford an "escort." The others are it's quieter and easier on the nerves and I don't have to share my booze: single malts are too expensive to watch some bimbo pour Red Bull into McCallan. Very few BJs are worth having to watch that: back in 1987 a little blond in the Mission got upset when I put Pepsi in Glenlivet and now it's understandable.

But anyway. Maine's rate is still very low: does anybody up there have any fun at all?

On the other hand, it's probably the only thing Mississippi and Washington agree on. We should laud this progress.

Going by the NY Times & (I think) Village Voice there seems to be a tradition of incestuous molestation among the Satmar hasidim. If the second lay of your life is your own 12 year old you won't be a public health menace till your wife marries him/her off at 17; that's when you start seeing shvartze hookers on the down-low, if rumor is correct. They're still doing better than the Southern Baptists, who must want to keep prostitution illegal to spite the johns who don't feel guilty.

By the way, does anybody realize that hookers sometimes have sex for free with people they like? Don't ask me how I know this.

Anyway. What about combining antibiotics? Would that do it even if it's resistent to one?

The problem is the quality "non-pro" poon holds out for the politicians and lobbyists who can afford to wine-&-dine them, unlike most native DCers who are poor and black. Same with the pros. So the the dregs of the profession and the gals who get around because they like to are likely to be as heavily trafficked as any "escort" from Fargo.

I love how Maine, the 8th lowest in the Nation, is somehow now the bastion of super gonorrhea.
Do us a favor and look elsewhere. If we have it, then another state has for years now. But since you know it's here, feel free to take some cultures and work on that, because it'll be on your lawn soon enough if it isn't already.

I was in Maine this past June. There was not one woman in the entire state that made me do a double-take. Everyone had the disposition of Eeyore and looked like some left-over from the grunge-era (flannel shirts or cam-print clothing).

/Ugh.

I know the story comes from a Maine news org, but subby's headline makes it sound like Maine is the epicenter of the superclap. And from the map provided, it isn't. According to the map, the epicenter is D.C.

In fact, looks like if there's any state where you wanna play STD roulette by not using a condom, Maine is a pretty good bet.
