Staying away from those involved with JJ Abrams' Trek would be a good way to stay healthy.
I would bet just hanging around Zoe Saldana is a big enough risk of catching an STD.

Seriously, how many convention attendees have ever actually been able to make out with a hot chick dressed like Sailor Moon (or any one else, for that matter)? And if the opportunity was to actually present itself, who could afford to turn her down just because she was sick? I'm just saying.

Hahaha, that was cute. I'll have to remember that! I've never been to a convention, but I plan on starting to fill my summers with them next year.

You should definitely look at some of the articles on my blog. There are some tips about food, and some articles about large cons vs small cons, etc.

Re: For those who attend conventions, boy do I have an article for you

I have been going to cons for over 30 years and I always plan it well. I sleep in the mornings, I have a hearty lunch and dinner, I try not to be intimate with hot ladies with colds or flu plus I take a couple extra days off to catch up on rest.

I definitely recommend taking at least a day to rest when you get home if you traveled for a con. I always take the Tuesday after Dragon*con off to "recover."

I dunno about you, but I see a LOT of hot girls are cons.

^^^^Yes, the hot girls are definately there. I'm just wondering how many of the guys going would actually have a chance to make out with any of them.


I'm just saying.
