Infectious disease! Yeah!

Winter Vomiting Disease is here. I think everyone in my ER last night had it. Note how the British links are pinch-mounted about calling the virus responsible for it the Norwalk Agent? 'Small Round Structured Virus' my hind leg! It's the NORWALK AGENT, noobs! That's because Norwalk is in America. America, baby! The viral agent of intractable vomiting and diarrhea is named after a town in the good ole' US-of-A. In your eye, Paris and London and Bonn and Perth! It's not the Paris Agent, or the London Agent, it's the NORWALK AGENT, and don't you foreigners with your French Diseases and your English Sweats forget it!

And right near Norwalk, Connecticut [oops. see comments.], is Coxsackie, NY. And Old Lyme Connecticut! Driving through New England is like driving through a textbook of infectious disease. Yeah!


The stars are right! The shoggoth is finished. Into the refrigerator with you, my lovely. Tonight, I will conjure with you.


OU
nagu(ru)
meaning: hit, beat, assault

殴打 == ouda == (noun) hit, strike
殴り込み == nagurikomi == (noun) raid


Right radical is 'strike': the top part was originally a pictograph of an axe, the bottom part is one of the radical versions of 'hand'. Left radical is 'ward/section' (区), used phonetically to express 'beat'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Assault in ward involving weapon'
