A ‘Cockamamie’ Upgrade for the Humble Tissue

The latest fix for the ultra-hacked lifestyle: Vaev, the tissue that lets you schedule your winter cold.

At $80 a box, ultra-chic  tissues claims to enable getting sick “on your own schedule.”

The “tissue that carries a human sneeze”—or at least a cocktail of ingredients that mimic one. And we’re not talking crumpled-up old Kleenex, but beautifully folded squares packaged like stationery.

If only it stood a decent chance of working… but doctors aren’t sold on the custom cold. It's a “cockamamie idea,” as one put it.

Another warned that the tissues may shed any virus before reaching hopeful cold sufferers’ doorsteps.
