Default Swine flu

They now have a case of the swine flu that's quite close to home. Not sure if it's something to worry about or not. I guess we should always worry about getting the flu, no matter what kind it is. But they've made this swine flu sound like it's a big deal. I guess it is considering it's killed healthy young adults. But...I don't know. I guess I didn't worry too much about it cause it wasn't near me, and now it is.

What do you all think?

I know there's a thread on this somewhere, but can't remember where.

I think I'm glad it's not as bad as they first predicted because it's close to me too!!... Unless this virus mutates and comes back in the fall they are saying its at this point not any worse then the regular flu.
It does seem to be making the healthy ppl more at risk then pppl with chronic and compromised health and immune systems!
I think that by useing standard precautions...washing hands...covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing and not going out of your way to be in confined places with alot of ppl.. we will all be OK!
Try not to worry :D *hugs*

It's not something to worry about. Just stay out of mexico and keep your noses clean. If you get it, and you die, then it was probably your time, if you don't you don't. Just relax, don't fret. Guess it's alright to take precautions but I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

It ain't a big deal, I'm sittin right on top of mexico and nobody gives a damn about it here, shit if you catch it just go to the hospital they'll treat you and quarantine you, hell even if you don't have no money I owe so much money to hospitals. People around here have been catchin it but I don't know how much I heard two the other day. Ain't really worried with it.

lol idk but more people die of aids, suicide, breast cancer, and other diseases alone.

Curiosity. Why IS it exactly a big deal? Is it because there is no cure for it, and you would probably die in a short time rather than die after a long period of suffering?

I think a pandemic is just what the world needs on the heels of a global financial crisis, don't you? Nothing like fear to keep the world in a state of paralysis. Governments love it and can mould the people into any shape they want for other ulterior motives. That is my belief and I'm sticking to it.

Signed the unmouldable one
