My son was coughing so hard that he revealed that he had a inguinal hernia! He actually coughed his intestines into his right you-know-what!!!
Wow. That actually sounds like whooping cough. Did they actually do labs to find out it was the flu? I got keuchhusten (Pertussis) in Germany after the baby I was caring for got it (Docs gave her homeopathic remedies). We each had it over a month--worst coughing EVER!
I interviewed at Google recently and from what I was told, the move to the new space is not a hiring spree, it's just a move to a better facility. This is just my assumption based on the questions I asked during the interview.
Oh and several large bay area corps had huge layoffs this year, so 5k jobs would only very slightly make up for that deficit.
