we know that bacteria and virus's have some type of instinctual replication and mutation system. but can they have a memory? i mean this week with my fever i had time to think ( not always lucidly) that dang it this is the exact 25th aniversary of my 1st surgery. so i wondered if at least 1 bug in there is 25 years old and said to his or her freinds, lets have a party! randy so enjoyed the first one we gave him back in the day, im sure he would have fond memeories..... just saying...

Nothing's impossible, only highly improbable. But given the way your body likes to play games w/you ...... you just may be on to something, Randy.

Maybe they can come up with amnesia for the little buggers.
Really just so glad to hear that you're feeling better.
