Default Swine Flu

Alright everyone I used the search but got zip. So there has been 2 comfirmed deaths from the swine flu. One here in the US the other in Mexico.

What are your thoughts on this? They are trying to get a shot to cure it as we speak

I heard we're not supposed to call it the "Swine Flu" anymore, supposed to call it the "H1-N1" Virus. I guess we're already getting screwed with exporting pork.

Lol, im not worried about this swine flu. If ish happens, then ish happens.

You don't want to get sick, don't be nasty.

Also the swine flu has killed close to 100 in Mexico and one in the US, a baby.

People just gotta chill out. It's just the flu. Reported cases here haven't really been all that serious. Wash your hands and don't make out with any hobos and you should be fine.
