Question of the Week #84

Would you have one of your fingers surgically removed if it somehow guaranteed immunity from all major diseases?

Do I get to choose which finger? Looking at my hand, I can’t think of which one I’d rather get rid of, but I think I’d like to have that choice if that time came. So yeah, if I get that choice, I’d do it. Does the common cold fall under the major diseases category? How about the flu? I think it’d be nice to not get those anymore. Ever.

Now that I think about it, all those illnesses are probably hiding out in my left pinky. That one always seemed kind of shady.
