    I know, I was just trying to poke fun.

    I have a picture thats pretty funny to go along with it but I can't seem to get it to load.

    I saw someone else's post saying that parents are flooding ER's in some places.
    Such irrational fearful sheep.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    There are some border state people here, they ought to be able to tell ya.

    Re: Swine Flu

    I am not worried about swine flu nor do I care. As far as I know more people have died from the regular flu in this country than they have of swine flu. We have 300 million plus people in this country 1 or 2 swine flu deaths or even a thousand is not a epidemic. I think the scum in the media and politicians are trying to distract us.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, in case anyone's interested, I just traveled the scary airports to NYC, rode the perilous subways, patronized the filth-ridden taxis, and flew back, and didn't encounter one person with the flu let alone catch it myself. Maybe it's just because I was armed with the most important information of all in this crisis, which is what not to do when the news breaks a story about something called the "swine flu":

    Re: Swine Flu

    i honestly dont really care. its just a bad case of flu that travels fast, and people in political positions with media connections are most likely just trying to make it a big deal so that we'll panic and pay no attention to the problems that obama is having filling his cabinet and whatnot. its almost just like getting in trouble with parents and then sayign oh, my older sibling did this to have the parents attention go to the other sibling.
    curiousity may have killed the cat but satisfaction brought me back

    and im 16, please dont bag on me if i dont think all the way through

    Re: Swine Flu

    WE dont know yet but i actually think the WHO organisation has done a good job alerting people it may turn out very mild but you can guarentee if they hadnt put this effort in and it turned real bad people would be going mad.The fact is most people arent proactive they are reactive Hurricane Katrina is a godd example there where serious warnings that people ignored and the amount of people demanding better levees.

    i suppose, but a hurricane is a different scenerio. as long as you have good hygene flu shouldnt be much of a problem.
