Swine flu. Don’t believe the hype

OMIGOD. Swine flu will surely attack the entire planet. Apocalyptic scenarios of mass doom abound. Be scared, be very scared. Truly, it is TEOTWAWKI. (Wait, wasn’t the world supposed to end during the last 5 Horrible Threats To Us All?)

Don’t believe the hype. Yes it’s a nasty bug. The planet has survived far worse.


  1. Interesting, isn’t it, that over 6% of identified cases in Mexico have died, while not one in the U.S has been fatal. Perhaps “interesting” isn’t the right word– “tragic” is more like it. The experts can’t seem to figure it out. Could it have something to do with 60% of the Mexican population living in poverty, while only 12% of Americans do? And it;s a fair bet that the ones jetting to Mexico for vacation aren’t part of that 12%.

    So are the Mexican flu fatalities dying of swine flu, or are they dying of the complications of poverty?

  2. the use of face masks and boosting your immune system by taking lots of vitamin-C is still an effective way of preventing the spread of the Swine Flu virus.
