rhinovirus

This morning's happy thought

The odds that a society could have modern medicine [*] but not hot running water seem sufficiently small as to make the scenario not worth considering, even in idle which-would-you-rather-have musings.

[*] for values of modern consisting of "equal to or exceeding the care currently available to me."

Brought to you by this morning's massively restorative and indulgent piping-hot shower.
