I didn't get any VR stuff so don't ask.

Those people are suckers. They will be sick in 7 days flat. I've been to CES for enough years now that I am not sticking anything near my eyes. And I almost brought a VR condom. CES is a Petri dish of viruses, and EVERYONE gets sick when they get back. There was no way I was doing any VR. Plus I can see all that stuff here without the annoying crowds at CES.

But, you will be able to canoe from the comfort of your home.

    One of my friends wound up contracting Coxsackie virus by playing around with another friend's little kid ...

    It seems like no big deal until you find out that variants A16, B3, and B4 are highly likely to cause diabetes and heart conditions.

    And so my post-Christmas present to several people has been a few green plasticloth Publix bags full of packs and tubs of sanitary wipes that have been upgraded with several bottles of benzalkonium chloride antiseptic wash.

    Wandering around COMDEX back in the 1980s wound up earning me a few nasty colds and that was pretty much it, but can you imagine the kind of crap you could wind up with now?

    Doctor: "Where did you pick up this interesting antibiotic-resistant eye infection?"

    You: "CES ..."

    Doctor: "So what happens in Vegas doesn't ..."



  2. When I first started going I thought - my immune system is strong. I've got this. But Everybody gets sick from CES. It's my annual cold. Like clockwork.
