“Vomiting Larry” Shows How Far Barf And Norovirus Can Travel | Food Poisoning Bulletin

“Vomiting Larry” Shows How Far Barf And Norovirus Can Travel | Food Poisoning Bulletin: Vomiting Larry is a barfing machine. And anyone who’s ever had norovirus knows exactly how that feels, even if Larry doesn’t.

Thank goodness for Larry that he is an atual machine and can’t feel a thing, because his job is to get loaded up with fluorescent vomitus and spew it so scientists at the UK’s Health and Safety Laboratory can measure the distance his barf droplets travel to see how norovirus is spread and to prove once and for all that there really are fun jobs in the world of science.
