CanCon: Sad Reverse Sleeping Beauty

A 15-year-old girl with a peanut allergy died after kissing her boyfriend, who had just eaten a peanut butter snack, hospital officials said Monday.

Christina Desforges died in a Quebec hospital Wednesday after doctors were unable to treat her allergic reaction to the kiss the previous weekend.
Peanut allergies have been rising in recent decades. The reason remains unclear but one study found that baby creams or lotions with peanut oil may cause children to develop allergies later in life.

No matter how bad finals are, they're not this bad.

I actually believe that finals are much worse than dying of peanut allegies. Surely you remember Ellis's multiple choice. Damn negligence.
