KLin mentioned it in this thread. Hope it's not true, but RIP if so.

Now that it's been confirmed, my condolences to his family and friends. From what little I knew of him, he was a good guy. He will be missed. RIP Denis.

My brother Denis was found dead in his apartment. Cause of death yet unknow, but natural said the coroner. Rest in peace Denis! We'll miss you.
Quote:
caught the flu recently, presumably on the plane or at the airport during my return trip from visiting the ex and I am just starting to get better after having been really sick for 11 days. During that time, I lost 8 lbs (so far). Worst flu I've ever had. Definitely not covered by the vaccines I've had the last few years, this one. Like I said I'm feeling better but I am seeing my family physician on Tuesday to make sure there are no complications (pneumonia, kidney problems, etc...).

I ate my first full meal today since I got ill but I still haven't recovered my sense of taste/smell. Everything except popsicles tastes like crap so I really have to force myself to eat. However, I only have a little fever and body ache left and my strength is slowly returning. Still feel like staying in bed most of the times but I make an effort to stay up and try to drink a lot of water. The dry cough that I've experienced since day one is still there but less frequent. Still congested though. Funny thing is, I never developed a sore throat... but I discovered a new kind of 'foamy/frothy' lower body expelling which I hope to never have to go through again.

Edit: Airplane cabins are veritable petri dishes. The one thing I hate most about flying. One Indian passenger in a wheel chair was vomiting two seats from me in the waiting room at the gate. Vomiting every 3-4 minutes straight on the carpet until they brought in a garbage bin for him to puke into. There was a discussion but in the end Air Canada allowed him on board, boarding last and exiting first. Not sure if he's to blame for my flu but the thought is there.
from facebook and probably neffers
