Am I the only one here thinking about being able to score with the hot chicks once everything settles down a bit ? hmm I guess Zombies and other such contaminated people would be a nuisance in my being with the hot defenseless chicks so Rob when all this happens you are in charge of killing all those zombies and I'll be in charge of "assisting" the helpless ladies.

This can be good teamwork

Post Your thoughts on the swine flu outbreak?

A bit of topic, and not sure where to post. But what's your thought's regarding this Flu virus going around? Should one be concerned?

This is just like any other epidemic, it'll get a lot of attention from the media just to make everyone panic. It'll go away in time. Just don't do anything stupid and everything will be fine.

Hi Xtop! how have things been for Ya?

At this time I think there has been no deaths in the usa however CNN mentioned that they have put out a Medical warning. A rumor is there shutting down federal buildings within the next 10 days and a possible chance of a mandatory lock down!

You know how it is here in the US. Crisis this, crisis that! No one opens with a joke anymore. I miss Danny DeVito.

There have been, what, 80 in Mexico? I don't think that it merits the level of panic that it's been given here so far, but I do suppose it is better to be proactive than reactive. It got to NYC via some students that took a Mexico trip - but I need to read more on the disease to see exactly how dangerous it is. Not that I have any children of my own (heck, I'm still a young'un myself) - but still best to be safe.

Recommendations to prevent infection by the virus consist of the standard personal precautions against influenza.

The previously recommended influenza vaccines for the southern and northern hemispheres, including that for the 2009/2010 flu season, are ineffective against the new strain.[56] The development, large-scale manufacturing, distribution and delivery of a new vaccine takes several months.[50]

It's no more an indication of the end of time than the plague, mad cow disease, the leper colonies, the crusades, the third reich and HD DVD.

why is everyone always looking for the signs of the end? The world has been through much much worse than this. Another thing I find funny, is that people always associate things going wrong with America = end of the world. Nobody was calling it a crisis when the flu originated in Mexico. But as soon as it comes to America, oh noes, Jeebus is coming back, hide the porn! Just live your life as normal. I'm not going to live in fear, and neither should you.

Due to the nature of the virus, healthy young adults in their 20s are the most at risk. A healthy immune system becomes a liability rather than an asset. Hence why students are the most at risk, I would say.

Due to the virus causing "cytokine storms" - which basically turn your own immune system against you, attacking healthy organ tissue. So the stronger your immune system, the more danger you would be in.

This is not a "regular epidemic" as someone said previously.
Here are reasons you should be concerned:

This virus is a recombinant of Swine Flu, Avian flu, and Influenza A+B. The chances of this happening naturally are next to zero. This could very well be a bioweapon. I am not trying to fear monger here, but everyone should be concerned. It's probably already too late, but the borders should be closed until this is contained. The Spanish flu started out as mild cases that rapidly mutated into a killing machine, killing, I believe, about 600000 in the U.S. alone. Because of illegal immigration, and trade ties with Mexico, this thing has spread fast, and has probably been spreading for a while. I'm not sure about it's mode for killing-cytokine "storms" is most likely, but maybe not. That's how SARS killed. I encourage everyone to educate themselves, and even just plain proper handwashing can save lives. I'm not going to preach End Times to anyone, but this has some pretty scary patterns. The CDC has 6 stages for things like this, the final one being many outbreaks in many countries. It's not there yet, but in just a few days, this thing is supposedly in Mexico, the U.S., Canada, and now today I hear New Zealand and China.
Are you ready for Martial Law? Governments might implement such things to try and contain this. Forced vaccinations? Possible... even though it's impossible to develop one so soon, and it probably wouldn't be effective anyways. Keep an eye on things... I hope this fades away...
