It's been a huge joke in our school since the suspected case (see my thread in OT) In our Senior Edition of the school newspaper, there was a 2-page story of our 2009 25-year reunion, where our valedictorian found a cure for Swine (She is going to become a doctor) and then somehow pigs came into the scene and they became mutant zombie pigs. Not quite sure how that happened...lol Oh, and because our school peers always said "School will close when pigs fly" close enough. XD
I don't think its as big of a deal as some people make it. Sure people have died, but those are people who didn't use sanitizer or at least kept themselves clean. No need for schools to close down either. Just keep the student home for a while, but not the whole school. If people take more showers and don't over react, it won't turn out that bad when its all over with.
It's not a matter of whether or not someone's watching over you. It's just a question of their intentions.

The thing hasn't passed but the whole, oh my gosh there some new and highly contagious disease, has died down.

The government blew this whole thing out of proportion, and here it's already gone.
not cured but gone generally.

Swine is currently headed downwards to the equator where their flu season is just breaking out...sources say it's going to get stronger and make a comeback in northern parts of the world soon afterwards. Who knows exactly what that means. The H1N1 virus is officially a pandemic, ladies and gentlemen. Only meaning that it's spread to most countries in the world, not that it's very severe.
I'll say one thing, when this Swine Flu/H1n1 thing first arose, I felt really guilty about winning Pandemic II a few days before.
I'm in England, and my sister has been in contact with someone in Swine flu!!
Thanks to telos for the sig
I don't think it's a big deal. Someone at my school got it and everyone was panicking but then a doctor told everyone that it was about as dangerous as influenza and everyone just forgot about the whole thing

Regular flu kills more people, actually...
While the US has the most reported cases, in proportion to it's population, other countries are much worse off. Germany has 22,000, Australia has 36,000, and Brazil has had the most deaths from swine-flu.
But hey, who needs facts when you can just make a mindless anti-American post?
EDIT: so yeah, I was gonna infract/warn everybody who made a post that was low content (IE most on this page). But then I got bored and had something to attend to, so I'm just closing this thread.
