    Crazy stuff...who pissed them off. A lady died Tuesday, and a guy died in January with pulmonary edema, which coincidentally was the cause of death of the others.

    When the autopsies are done, my $$ is on Chlordane. Somebody is poisoning the folks with bug poison.

    I wouldn't support anybody I care about vacationing in the DR.

    reports i'm hearing about/reading, the real potential for the problem could be bootleg alcohol. skimping on booze and buying the cheap junk that may be turning out to be deadly.

    I thought bad booze made you go blind, not kill you like you just got bit by a black mamba, although nothing would surprise me.

    One of the articles said they smelled chems in the room is the reason for my guess.

    Also someone died at the Hard Rock resort with the same symptoms. One would think that they would have a handle on the supply chain.

    The minibars in the rooms do seem to be a common theme. One thought I had is that it isn't the hotels buying bootleg liquor but the employees swapping out the minibar liquor with cheap bootleg liquor and somehow making a profit. The employees at these resorts are living near poverty. Not sure how it would all work but I can't imagine the hotels themselves are buying bootleg stuff.

    We just got back from Cancun. Still at O’hare, actually (airline hell coming back).

    We noticed something kind of strange this time. Every drink a bartender made, they took a spoonful of it, put it on the back of their hand and tasted it. We weren’t sure if that was in an effort to show that it wasn’t poison, or if they were just checking the mix. They did it every single time tho.

    All the more reason to grab a few bottles at Duty Free on your way.

    I’m honestly kind of over the all inclusive thing. We just got back from Cancun for a destination wedding (not mine lol) and the whole thing was kinda meh, and this was at a five star resort. Doesn’t help that we paid for two round trip flights, and true to form ended up taking five with a bunch of layovers so I might be a little salty.

    I’m also just kind of tired of being stuck at the resort eating at buffets and shit. I’d rather go to Florida and fish and eat at resteraunts and shit.

    If I seem to 'member my chemistry class lecture, something about natured and de-natured alcohol?
    One is essentially poison, one is the right stuff.
    Forgot which is which though- someone chime in on this?
