Weight gain, weight loss and, yes, herpes.

It’s called Wind Turbine Syndrome. And you can get it by living near a wind turbine.

“Wind turbine syndrome might just seem like a collection of unrelated health complaints to the untrained eye, but untrained eye is also a symptom of wind turbine syndrome.”

You can also catch WTS just by hearing someone talk about it!

Colbert‘s take on this is, of course, hilarious.
