    lol - wondering how long before a post re: this would appear :roll: :roll:

    I read somewhere that 65k people die every year in the USA alone down to normal influenza! thats 180 per day! and the bbc is reporting on a couple who have a cough in airdrie...... :roll:
    It's been a while...

    Oh no, even bikeradar is now in on the hysteria.

    Mind you, if swine flu crosses with avian flu we're in trouble. There'll be a pandemic of flying pig flu before we know it.

    As for stats, 65k in the States seems about right, apparently normal flu kills about 500k worldwide every year, and yes it does seem if anything the masks help to spread rather protect from the flu.

    I refuse to die from some naff animal disease like pig flu.

    Now, lion flu or dragon flu....they would be worth getting.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Because I'm a born cynic and bored, just done some investigative work, seems that Roche Pharmaceuticals, the company who manufacture the Tamiflu antiviral drug, only last month had their second worst stock market result for some years.

    Coincidence, you decide........

    (Please don't all throw this back in my face if we all die from swine flu though)

    I wouldn't be surprised if Roche infected the Mexicans just to kick it all off. Seems kinda strange that Roche have a bad year and then along comes a pandemic that they have a cure for :wink:

    Paranoid ? You bet.

    **Update**

    NHS Direct problems.

    Looks like this Swine flu has swamped their call centre.
    I've just been on the phone to the helpline to find out more about swine flu, but all I got was crackling.

    Just had a text from a mate. Tells me he's got swine flu, but I reckon he's telling porkies.

    Actually, no, its true. Turns out he has got flu, he's covered in rashers.

    I really hope he can be cured.

    Nice. :lol:

    Just had a call from the wife. Says she's run out of petrol but is afraid to fill up because of swine flu. I said "Hey you daft bint, that's in Mexico, not Texaco!"

    We really must stop hogging all the jokes, it's becoming a boar.

    So it appears swine flu has replaced the fears about bird flu.

    I guess bird flu just never took off...

    A man walks into the doctors' and tells the doctor, "I think I've got swine flu."
    The doctor asks him, "How long have you felt like this?"
    To which the man replies, "About a weeeeeeeek!"

    The Americans are stupid. They were testing their new biological weapon next door.
    And they are now in threat to extinguish them selfs. :lol:
  • did I see the gouverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrment ordered 32 million masks

    Isn't the over 63 million people in the UK
    I assume this is French petrol - be careful in reverse - the car will retreat rapidly at the least provocation.

    lets face it, you're more likely to get MRSA whilst in hospital being tested for swine flu.

    Those are for the non smokers. Because you can't smoke with a mask.
