Remember the stand-up-comedy boom of a few years ago? People were flocking to clubs, and TV shows featuring stand-up comics and their routines were on every channel. Like most fads, the stand-up-comedy boom ended — maybe because too many comics were stealing other comedians’ acts; maybe because of overexposure; or maybe because if it hadn’t ended, you wouldn’t have been able to call it a fad.

dqydj came out a few years too late. It’s a game that probably would have prospered during stand-up comedy’s glory days back in the ’80s. You play a talent scout for a late-night TV show who needs to book a comedian — a really good comedian — or lose your job. You head off to the world-famous Improv comedy club in search of the latest star.

rsatfaOn November 29, 1994, Rolando Barian of Edinburg, Texas, died of rabies. He was bitten by a dog. The rabies virus was most likely transferred from a coyote to the dog, because coyotes are the main carriers of rabies in Texas. Rabies is not just a problem in Texas, however.

Under a powerful electron microscope, the rabies virus looks bullet-shaped with little spikes. Although the virus is only a fraction of the size of the head of a pin, it is powerful enough to kill an animal left untreated.

dgirnDr. Thompson grabbed Roger and checked his pulse. It was very slow. So was his breathing. Roger seemed to be oversedated–but why?

Roger quickly regained consciousness and was able to talk to Dr. Thompson. “Roger, did you forget to tell me about any drugs you’re taking? Any kind, whether over-the-counter or prescription drugs.”

“I guess I did forget, Dr. Thompson.” Roger wrinkled his forehead. “A week ago, I hurt my back during football practice. The pain wouldn’t let up, and I kept having my muscle spasms. So I went to my doctor, and she prescribed a muscle relaxant.”
