h/t Lucybears... Discovery's presumed captain Tom Danielson has Stomach problems (scroll down) and left today's race. Poor guy. I wonder, did he just get to Europe? I have no idea, but it seems like one way to avoid one type of stomach problem is to be in country a month early. To avoid another type of stomach problem, don't have kids. But there are plenty of other sources (e.g., other people's kids) so I suppose you never know.
