This past weekend, Seattle played host to the annual Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), one of the largest public video gaming conventions in the world. For years now, I’ve been lamenting the fact that I never can quite make up there to attend. However, it sounds like not attending this year might have an upside. Numerous con attendees are reporting they’ve fallen ill with the flu.

So far notable victims include web cartoonist Scott Kurtz (PvP), geek icon Wil Wheaton and Penny Arcade co-conspirator Mike Krahulik/Gabe. The San Diego Comic-Con may be overcrowded, smelly and expensive, but I can say that it has never gotten me sick.

  • These various celebrities has reported feeling sick, but none of them have been diagnosed with H1N1. As a matter of fact, last I checked there was a grand total of one Pax’er that does have a positive diagnosis for H1N1.
