[Error: unknown template qotd]In this internet age, you would think that when people heard about things like this they would take a half second to do some research on the subject, find out if it really DESERVES to be freaked out about.

The swine flu DOESN'T.

Granted, if I lived in mexico, I would be more concerned.  And perhaps it will get worse.  But as it stands, there have been NO fatailities from this strain of flu outside of Mexico.  It's not been found in any pigs outside of Mexico.  There haven't even been any secondary cases (a person who has not been to Mexico coming down with the flu having contracted it from someone who HAS been to Mexico) in the US as far as I've seen (that might have changed, the last time I heard anything was this morning).

People freak out over shit like this all the time, because when some idiot tells them that the world is ending, they buy into it.  Our gullibility may be an evolutionary failsafe against some of the nasty things that could take us out (despite being at the top of the food chain), but sometimes, it's fucking ridiculous.  Wake up.  There are things to worry about that are worth your energy.  This isn't one.

And now back to your regularly scheduled whining and complaining.
