  • Yep..I contracted strep throat from Lake Michigan many years ago so I will never go in there again. I don't worry about pee or cryptosporidium floating around in the water if that's what you mean. As far as appearances go, whatever. I am past that point.

  • Sure, and I've never been ill from it. It's not like the beach is cleaner. The world is full of germs, so unless I contract an autoimmune disease, I'm going to go ahead and live my life.
