    It's crap isn't it? If it was just a case of feeling rough then I wouldn't complain, but why oh why, after blowing my nose hard and long enough to dislodge my brain, is my head full of snot again 20 seconds later?

    That and the constant nose wiping,

    You have my sympathies

    Im not working this week was going to hit the gym and do a few little jobs that need doing on my car, instead just downloading films and eating beans on toast, like being a student all over again

    According to some News articles they said that having curry also helps. I'll try and dig out the article. So imagine having curry and beer together?

    Hmmm, as an Indian, our age old trick to clear up a cold is an extra hot spicy curry and extra dosages of Brandy

    simple tricks (for men) to beat the common cold and the flood of snot!!!!!

    Eat loads (hot food does help!!! sweat it out!!!!)
    Drink loads (you forget you ill if you drink enough and you can also add whisky or brandy to you lemsips!!!)
    Buy some liquid Olbas Oil. A few choices here - put a few drops on your pillow as it helps clear your nose when you are trying to sleep, add it to hot water and put a towel over your head whilst inhaling the vapours, or buy one of those little candle lit things where you can put smelly oil in the dish and it makes the room smell nice - just replace the oil with Olbas Oil - helps keep those nasal passages free when the footie is on!!!!!!!!!!
    Do not moan about it!!!
    If your missus accuses you of having manflu, bird man flu or even flying pig bird manflu - next time she is ill make a fuss of her - that way she will feel obliged (or may even be impressed that you noticed and looked after her) to be nice to you when you are ill!!!!!!!!!!

    Here endeth the first lesson on stopping wifey/GF being on a par with Satan when it comes to you being ill!!!

    Alternatively just do not be ill!
