Measles

Like the measles, love is most dangerous when it comes late in life.

Excerpt courtesy Wikipedia:
The measles is a highly contagious airborne pathogen which spreads primarily via the respiratory system. The virus is transmitted in respiratory secretions, and can be passed from person to person via aerosol droplets containing virus particles, such as those produced by a coughing patient. Once transmission occurs, the virus infects the epithelial cells of its new host, and may also replicate in the urinary tract, lymphatic system, conjunctivae, blood vessels, and central nervous system.

Humans are the only known natural hosts of measles, although the virus can infect some non-human primate species.





And after reading the post:
The love syndrome is a highly contagious airborne feeling which spreads primarily via the mental system (has exceptions). The virus is transmitted mainly through infatuative secretions, and can be passed from person to person via many kinds of known influences, such as those produced by a relatively attractive person. Once transmission occurs, the virus infects the mind, body, soul, and the whole mental universe of its new host, and may also replicate its degree of influence over the host momentarily.

Humans are not the only known natural hosts of measles, the virus is known to infect some non-human primate species.

Crimson Feet said...

The assumption is misleading. Love is never dangerous.

Love is the purest form of human existence.

Ria said...

rayshma said...

umm... well... the only "lord" i like is the 'lord of the rings'... so, don't agree... it may, sometimes, take a lifetime to find what is commonly known as "true love".

Solitaire said...

@ Vat, OMG OMG OMG!! what can I say? so much extensive research on how love is like measles. Awesome job!!!

@ Alok, I don't think there is any immunity developed for measles, is there?

@ Nirmal, in your blog? Matlab?

Solitaire said...

@ Crimson, then why do they also say that love is slow poison?

@ Ria, I dunno! apparently, it has harmed someone!

@ Impressionist, that's it?

@ Veens, tujhe kaise pata?

aneri_masi said...

Nope. Love is hard to come late in life, because we have developed strong personalities by then. But when it does come, the love is also very strong and mature, where you like someone in spite of the wrinkles on their faces and their painful joints..unlike the puppy love of teenagers, where everything is shiny and new!

Ghost Particle said...

It is?! now ur scaring me :)

but i don't find it any dangerous than falling in love earlier.

But 'unlike' measles it pains more when Love leaves early after coming not-so-early. :)

APOO said...

Dont know about measles, but love is never dangerous, any stage of life.

humbl devil said...

it's gonna be dangerous whenever it comes..hehe...only that when young, people tend to be more flexible...

Nirmal's Blog said...

had 3 post in the topic LVOE ,......but still confused..

carolinagal said...

I don't believe love can ever be dangerous. When love turns into obsession, thats when it becomes dangerous.

Chakoli said...

never...

love at any stage is good:-)))

Sweetstickychewy said...

Hmm..Really? i wonder what Bryon think so...

Question mark.

Crimson Feet said...

Of freedom restrained,
and a choked release.
Of shapeless bodies,
and trembling ease.
Love is a dream, a life, a breath.
Its that one moment, when you can love even death.

Keshi said...

how LATE is LATE in this qn? LOL!

Anyways, Love is dangerous in any age hehe.

I think Love is most dangerous when it comes in early life. Rem when we were teens we had no clue abt Love and just fell for the cutest guy *rolling eyes*

Now we know what alot of 'responsibilties' that Love can come with and that CUTE just doesnt cut it LOL!

rahul said...

have an eight pack of beers daily...get a pot -belly,get bald...and I guess you are pretty much immune :P !!!!

Anonymous said...

yeah true .. whenever they leave .. one leaves scars on face & skins, while other on heart and minds..

Pavi!!!! said...

love at any time COULD be dangerous.The same thing i said when u asked us if love is slow poison. When obsessed over ..anything becomes dangerous/poisonous!

n i dint know tht measles cld get dangerous as we get older!

c e e d y said...

It is I guess in ones mind - if we think it is dangerous - It will be - same goes with anything one does or is affected by. If one takes it in the stride - it can be a worthwhile experience both measals and love.
Measals can give the much needed rest time to recover whereas llate love can help lower cholesterol.

catscratch diva said...

You got that right!

Sutta said...

On another note, I agree with what Ceedy said too. Its about how we take it.

parikrama said...

Late blooming love can be extremely dangerous for the Pelvic Bone. Especially for 50 ++ age group people who are prone to Osteoarthritis ;-)

Solitaire said...

@ Parikrama, i am beginning to LOVE all your answers. You do think a lot outside the box and your answers are so witty too!

@ Ceedy and Sutta, but measles is so itchy! I do not know how I can take it in a positive light!

@ Diva, thanks!! Thank you for stopping by again.

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi, good call!! I did not know that about measles too.

@ Anonymous, yeah. But I think love can feel divine at some point while measles never feels wonderful.

@ Rahul, wow!! Try it and let us know how it works for you.

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi, that is a good question. What exactly is late? For someone anxiously waiting to fall in love, 28 can be late. While for some others, 65 could be late.

@ Crimson, wow..are those your own words? Beautiful!

@ Sweetsticky, maybe he had both..measles and love at a late age.

Solitaire said...

@ Chakoli, now we would not know about late age would we?

@ Carolinagal, true.

@ Nirmal, oh! Maybe you need practical knowledge to understand it better.

@ Humble, haha! Flexible body wise or mind wise?

Solitaire said...

@ Dawn, thanks!

@ Apoo, how do you know?

@ Sutta, too confusing!!

@ Ghost particle, basically its dangerous no matter when, right?

@ Aneri, bestest answer!! Very clarifying!

Alok said...

I meant internal immunity.

Crimson Feet said...

yepp... very much mine... :)
penned them in response to your "isnt love is slow poison" comment..

rahul said...

Anjuli said...

Vandita said...

ishqia said...
