My guess is this was written by an intern on his/her first day, and it ultimately gave him a massive promotion.

I'm afraid to read this as the CDC take on lyme is so enraging that it ruins my whole day.

I get it, Razzle - I just did it too - click on what you know to be untrue for 4 out of 5 answers and you'll get the quiz right! One of the questions and answer we actually agree with. Fancy that. I bet that's the one Lymetoo got right.

I'm so inspired by this experience that I've come up with another 5-question quiz - anyone can add to the quiz in the spirit of the CDC one.

1) What is the Transamerica Building in downtown San Francisco actually called?

2) Is the Golden Gate Bridge actually golden?

3) Was Washington's white horse actually white?

4) Are air, water, food and shelter necessary for human survival?

5) If laughter is contagious, is there anything we can do about it?

Answers down below. Give it your best shot before you look.

Answers to the above questions:

1) The Eiffel Tower

2) Yes

3) No, the horse was brown

4) No

5) No. You're all going to die laughing. Hahahahaha.

Robin.....eww. So close. The answer is "what is peanut butter?"


The quiz changed into Jeopardy without telling anyone. Ken Jennings is not allowed anywhere near the building.

Suppose a CDC intern provided their rationale from the answers to Robin's test:

1. I had no idea the Eiffel tower was in San Francisco
2. I suppose they need guards on the bridge to protect the gold
3. All the paintings where Washington is sitting on a white horse are going to have to be colored brown ( CDC employees with crayons! scary!)
4. Geeeee everyone knows you can survive with a complete lack of public concern
5. At the CDC death has always been amusing

Report-back at a weekly meeting confab, no less, Bob - we won't tell them that we have a "wrong tour" bus in which they could hear many more tidbits like this!

We won't tell them, will we, that

1) cockroaches in San Francisco get sprayed day-glo colors ever since the psychedelic 60s, or that

2) folks here in the adjacent Little Italy and Chinatown neighborhoods love the cooking blend known locally as Chitalian, or that

3) the public health department requires tick checks prior to entering their building headquarters, nah -

1st link...I got only 1 of the 5 questions right (like most of you).

But then I've only been studying this pathogen for 14 years and am trying hard to keep up with the "latest" knowledge.

As opposed to learning from old outdated textbooks with lots of ads for drugs and listening to lectures from professors who do not have "up to date" knowledge.

Photon (therapy) joke from the current issue of Readers' Digest:

"A photon is going though airport security. The TSA agent asks if he has any luggage. The photon says, "No, I'm traveling light."

That reminds me of the old joke - time flies like an arrow but fruit flies like a banana...
