I'm thinking of going to Sam's Club and buying the gallon sized jug of Purel to put at my station pointing out where everyone can use it.  Forget the chocolate, I've got the Crud Buster!

Some bugs are resistant to the alcohol in hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol is recommended), so wash your hands whenever possible since it is more effective.  For those who tend to get the crud, flus, etc., hand sanitizer is great if it is all that is available.

Well I, for one, plan on applying the alcohol internally. Kill the bugs much quicker that way.

Hand sanitizer isn't enough. Do as the barbarian says. Bring Emergen-C and vitamins. Many will probably do the same since it will be a larger turn out this year.

My intention is to fight infections with 80+ proof hard liquor!

 

[Looks up ReaperCon rules concerning alcohol]

 

...Or I could, you know, just stay sick. At least I'll remember what I'll learn during classes.

Hey that's an idea, fill my candy dish with Vitamin C/Zinc gummies and chewables.  Plus hand sanitizer.  Plus scotch. One can never be too safe.

I love my high immune system! Haven't got sick at Rcon since the pirate themed one & it was only on Saturday. Really don't get sick during the winter season as well. Of course I get colds but nothing that knocks me over. Don't do flu shots either!

 

Again, happy for one hell of a immune system.

 

Con crud is real thou. The last couple years at HGI it's been the worst I've seen for RCon. Hopefully the change in venue will help prevent that.

That didn't work for me. There are more than a few people that can attest that I really tried to kill those bugs too.

At the last one the ground zero patient was one of the instructors that came in sick from CA.

Actually, we eventually identified 3 ground zero people and likely two strains of flu.  I had started coming down with my strain on the drive down, having caught it from my son.  I was getting better by Saturday morning and then came down with Strain 2 on Sunday.  WORST drive home ever.  Both of us were sick.

I was so sick last year I essentiall fulfilled my obligations and then spent the con in misery in my room.  This year I want to do it ALL!!!!!

 

Last year a lot of people seemed to be sick. Something swept through the con.

 

Hopefully we can avoid that this year!

This year it'll be fist bumps instead of shaking hands! Also, it's a good idea for everyone to make sure to load up on Vitamin C and any immune boosters as Con Crud is a real thing and will take you out quick.

 

Only if you're weak. ::P:

I very rarely get sick; I'll be relying on my Dwarven constitution to keep me healthy. :poke:

    • By Lord of the Dish Pit
      In accordance with the title of May's hobby goal section, and getting a bit bored with using the same colors over and over, I decided to open up the Box of Waiting and found these....

      (back left corner) 2 Wizkids Blink Hounds
      (back to us as NSFW) Vampire with Victim
      (big guy in the back) Dungeon Saga Zombie Ogre Wizard
      (in front of Zombie Ogre) Dungeon Saga Necromancer
      (right of Zombie Ogre) 2 Wizkids Ghouls
      (right of Ghouls) Female Wraith from Graveyard Expansion
      (next to Necromancer) Undead Wolf from Graveyard Expansion
      (next to Wolf) Female Mad Scientist
      (next to Mad Scientist) Stone
      (next to Stone) Reaper WW2 Zombie German
      (last on right) Orc from Learn to Paint kit
      (front rank) various Mousings from the Tavern Set and Thankgiving and Christmas Mouslings.
      There's more, but this is everything that has had more than priming applied. 

      First up was the Female Mad Scientist, who was one of the first minis I bought when I got back into the hobby. I started on her not long before I left Austin, and while I was happy with how most of her came out, I got a bit lost in what to do with her base. Her weapon and smiting glove were also unfinished. There's a touch up on her face from where she got chipped in transit, but the patch doesn't seem to show in pictures. (yay!)

      I got her weapons finished, a bit of purple on her hat ribbon, and the beginings of her base.

      The wraith, wolf, and ghouls received a coat of black wash over the parts that were already gray, and the wraith and wolf got further applications of Storm Gray. The skin on the ghouls was a base of Vampire Skin washed with Rainy Gray. Now that I have the rest of the triad, I can start getting them highlighted.

      Like last year, this thread is to find roommates and transit. Being the con isn't at the hotel rides may be more important.

      My situation: Room full at 4 Wednesday through Monday.
      Rides unknown as flights not booked, but looking at noonish arrival Wednesday, into dfw, out if dfw Sunday around 7, maybe Monday if I can get the time off then. Either way I'll need help with transit if possible.

      On your marks...get set...

      With the announcement of the HGI block being filled up for RCon this year, thought I'd I ask where everyone will be staying for the con this year. Helps with getting together afterwards or even during the Con.
       
      I'll be staying at Hilton Garden Inn (HGI) this year.

      Welcome to the House Procrastius Common Room.
       
       

      House Procrastius
      "Ego probabiliter ad cras"
       
       
      Yeah, I know the other Houses got their rooms up before us.  Sorry, it took me awhile to get to it.  But you know, it still got done.  Got a little busy with stuff.  Anyway, have at it.  When you get a chance.  If you can't, it'll keep.
       
      As a wise old teacher once said to me:
       
      “Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.â€
      - Mark Twain
       
      ​Now, I think the teacher was trying to get me to turn my work in on time, but honestly, I loved Mark Twain, and it sort of had the opposite effect.
