Stay away from people if you can. They're bad news. Along with the love and friendship and happiness, they give you loads of viruses and bacteria and make you sick as well. Not to mention the stress and pressure they give you with their demands for attention, and the cleaning up after them.
The Aztecs lost their civilization to the Spanish conquistadors not because the Spaniards had greater fire-power or superior fighting skills. Those Aztec people were some of the best guerrilla fighters the world had ever known. After some heavy losses the Spaniards almost gave up. But the Aztecs eventually got wiped off the face of the earth because some among the Spaniards came in peace and love and religion. They brought the flu and other viruses too.
My ex-boss Bill used to stay out at sea for months on end through rain and shine and rough weather and never had a day of sickness. But within a week of coming ashore and after the hugs and kisses of friends and relatives he had to get a doctor's prescription.
