On the other hand, there will also be people (and I have read on another forum about them) who will be convinced everyone and everything around them are direct, blameable sources of infection. When a person is absolutely convinced that the server at a fast-food restaurant is a walking virus factory, no amount of sensible disagreement will make a difference.

Remember the SARS outbreak in Toronto.
Koir, thanks for correcting my English as always!
Was my post too serious? I’ve tried to sound light, but I seem to have failed.
You think “we're all gonna die”, I see. One of my friends said it’s a kind of doom.
Actually, I will resort to every possible means to survive even if it’s useless resistance, but I often eat fast-food.

May I write what you wrote in my blog? Your opinion will be very good with my post.

Hello, I may not understand English very well and I may lack words but I will try to understand you.

If you have questions about my post or Japanese customs, don't hesitate to ask.
