I was logged into my blog manager a little while ago and noticed that I had 99 posts. I decided to round it off to an even 100 by revealing a little known fact about myself: I am prohibited by the FDA from donating blood. Why, you ask? Well, apparently I am more likely than the average donor to be a carrier of New Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease.

Yes, you heard right: I might have Mad Cow disease. For the record, I find your "Ohhhhhhh" of sudden clarity rather insulting.

["The FDA 'Guidance for Industry,' issued in August 1999 requires U.S. blood banks to turn away all donors who have spent a cumulative total of six months or more in the United Kingdom during the period from Jan. 1, 1980 through Dec. 31, 1996." - from here]
