So for those of you who actually watch that one show called "The News", you've already heard, and probably feared for your life, about the "Swine Flu". But for those of you who happened to have been living under a rock these past 15 hours or so, allow me to explain :) (I don't think the smiley face is appropriate when explaining that there might be a deadly disease that can kill us all...but I wanted to seem friendly)
According to this Yahoo article, the swine flu is a "worrisome new virus — which combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before — also sickened at least eight people in Texas and California, though there have been no deaths in the U.S."
Okay I'll bold the part where it concerns me the most :
"worrisome new virus — which combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before — also sickened at least eight people in Texas and California, though there have been no deaths in the U.S."
DO YOU SEE THAT PEOPLE? DO YOU SEE THAT? California! CAALLLIIFFFOORRRNNIIAAA! Although the morbid but bright thought is that all the schools can be shut down for a while and I won't have to complete those stupid 'STAR' tests (thank you Mr. Bush) but I hope it won't get that serious, because it will sucks having to go to school during my precious summer vacation.
Oh, right the news, well anywho most people fear for the worst. (What the heck happened to optimism and 'don't worry we have it all contained so continue shopping with no cash since there's a recession and cooking barbecues with toxic carbon monoxide gas that will only worsen the global warming! -insert smiley face-):
"It might already be too late to contain the outbreak, a prominent U.S. pandemic flu expert said late Friday.Given how quickly flu can spread around the globe, if these are the first signs of a pandemic, then there are probably cases incubating around the world already, said Dr. Michael Osterholm at the University of Minnesota."
-insert a really loud expletive- DEAR LORD SAVE US ALL! I mean, I wouldn't hope for a pandemic/epidemic because that's sick and twisted... But I do want to know if this 'virus' causes zombies. Not that I would want to be one because they're the undead and what not but because this quiz on facebook said I have a 64% chance of a surviving a Zombie invasion so if it does happen, I know I can make it to the sequel.
If they start handing out 'How to save yourself from a zombie' pamphlets, look for a hijabi taking a box full. Oh and there really isn't much you can do since there isn't a vaccine and the best way (wtf?) to get it is to be in direct-contact with pigs (oh look this is where the title actually makes sense! But do the pigs have to be alive or what?) So wash your hands often, if you feel like you're having the flu, go to your doctor immediately and avoid unnecessary contact with hobos!
As for me, I'll be hiding out in my bunker and will emerge after Russia and U.S nuke each other out in which I will be living off the cockroaches that survived.... or until I feel the need to blog, toodles!
