    one of my colleagues at work is a virologist and I found out the following interesting fact yesterday;


    When someone suffers from glandular fever (Epstein-Bahr), the body produces anti-bodies against any possible virus it can has ever been in touch with.

    Glandular fever is diagnosed by mixing white bloodcells in with sheeps blood. If the sheeps blood congeals, you have glandular fever.

    Ergo, every single person on earth has an anti-body against sheeps blood.


    One wonders....

    Everybody will always generate antibodies against sheeps blood (if you get sheeps blood into your own) because it will have antigens (the things that the body recognises as foreign to itself, which initiate the immune response to produce antibodies against it) that the human body does not recognise and treats as foreign. Its the same with human blood, thats why they have to match your blood type otherwise you will reject it as being foreign because it has foreign antigens on the cell surface.

    So basically you're saying that this has nothing to do with the morality of boinking sheep.

    Boink all you want! Just don't try and become blood brothers with the sheep - stick to the boinking, and safe boinking at that.

    I think the important bit in Polpot's post is "if you get sheeps blood into your own".

    If healthy blood were mixed with sheep's blood it would be all like, meh. However if you put sheep's blood in your body it would be like "Hoi cunt, fuck off, now".
