Levi, you do come up with some amazing posts. Much appreciated.
Is there a PR person in the house? My avid imagination took your suggestion of having this picture made into a fashionable and educational necktie and ran with it.
What if someone could approach the tie company to see if they would make an xmrv tie with the proceeds going to the WPI? And of course help them write the educational info that's inside the tie so that they get it right.
Heck, I'd not only buy them as presents, I'd wear one myself.
Could come up with jokes about ME/CFS being the noose around my neck........
ps I took the liberty of adding the photo to the xmrv images thread.
Also, think I'm going to email WPI and give them my fund-raising idea.
That is truly, truly awesome. And yeah, scarves would be another good use for the patterns.
I have a plush microbe, for the record. Giardia. A friend gave it to me as a gift back when I was a frequent backpacker. It's pretty cute, and will be even funnier if I'm found to have giardiasis, which I'm getting tested for just today, in fact.
