Don't stick deadly stuff up your nose
Don’t run with scissors.
It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.
Oh, never mind.
Anyhow, a woman in North Louisiana used a neti pot to rinse out her sinuses and introduced a brain-eating amoeba that killed her.
A neti pot is an ancient device to rinse your nasal passages. Apparently Ganges water never hurt anybody.
Use distilled or boiled water—the docs say.
Yeah, that tap we are drinking could eat your brain.
I do know when my eye was sewed shut (don’t ask), it pulled and itched and I let the shower run on it. The eye doc was horrified—not tap, he almost screamed.
Soooo…have a nice weekend. Try to live through it.
