Comic - if only bacteria were this cute.. by Absolute-Sero Comic - if only bacteria were this cute.. by Absolute-Sero
Hahaha, I'm so funny. If you don't like Chuck Norris, substitute the favourite kick-ass actor/martial artist of your choice. (Jackie Chan was almost the reference here, but for some reason I forgot whilst drawing this..)
Also, not an accurate bacteria drawing.. but more interesting and less gross than what they really look like. XD

Seriously, though, guys, take your antibiotics! Us lab techs in the hospitals scramble to identify ways to treat these suckers, and one of the reasons that these 'superbugs' exist is because people didn't take all of their antibiotics.. Basically the 'strong survived' of the bacterial population, and gave you drug-resistant bugs!

If you think a bit of nausea or a minor rash is a bad side effect and it puts you off from taking the full dose, trust me... it's nothing compared to what the last-resort drugs (sometimes all we have, if anything, to treat super-bugs) have as side effects. @__@

This is actually the fourth attempt to draw this, and I finally finished it.. I've been trying for several months to think of a way to say this. So now it's said, even if it's not terribly funny :B

That little dork in the lab gown is me (sort-of) and the redhead who offers the simple version of the explanation is Val Rivers. No stealing. Kbye.

I like that it's hairier and is so badass that it has -two- belts! One from it's own unique style it made in biological kungfu, the other from lesser antibiotics that dared to challenge it's authority. :O So kind of like a General Grevious/Chuck Norris Bacteria! >: D Except Chuck Norris wouldn't stand for someone as wimpy as Grevious to share his name.

I didn't know this though, thanks for sharing ^^ I was one of "those" people that would stop taking them after I felt better because I figured, hey! I'm alright again! No more having to take yucky pills.

Hehehe.. the hairy-ness was my quick, lame attempt at drawing flagella. I'll have to show you pictures of bacteria sometime, lol. Also I have no idea who General Grevious is.. >.>

It's easy to do, and I did that at one point, but it's important to not take antibiotics when you don't need them and make sure to follow the dosage instructions when you do. Maybe I'll show you what the REAL yucky antibiotics do when I come home next week.. they certainly make me hope I never need to take 'em. :fear: (And grateful I am not allergic to penicillin.)

Sadly there are strains of bacteria out there already like that.. one strain (fortunately only one confirmed case of it so far) is resistant to ALL drugs we currently have in our arsenal. So it is probably the equivalent of a Chuck Norris bacteria. D8

Cute comic. Me, my mom's working on an entrepreneur version of managing health records. That said (usually because she says so) I take vitamins C and D-3 and then gets me to take MegaRed! (The super version of fish oil) oh, and Ginko Baloba cause my memory sucks...and...yeah...what was I talking about? LOL

Well, this comic is talking about antibiotics but seeing as I'm pretty reliant on iron supplements to avoid anemia.. I gotta say vitamins and minerals are important too. I'd be pretty sick without my daily iron dose. XD
