you forgot about...

gamma radiation!!!

no no, not the radiation that turned Bruce into the Hulk... but the radiation that comes from old people, such as grampas and grammas.

it's deadly, and often accompanied by messing of the hair, kisses/pinches on the cheek, and complete right-wing judgement about my orientation... sometimes there's birthday money though.
