Anyone oinking yet?

With the inevitable swine flu pandemic, we're going to have a lot more time indoors playing Heroscape, with ourselves...

Seriously, though, I was just curious if anyone has been affected by this. The news is usually over reporting or under reporting this type of thing, so I thought I'd take an unscientific sample here.

Any stories?

Re: Anyone oinking yet?

Well, a 2 year old just died today in Houston. He was visiting in Texas from Mexico and got sick and brought here. So our first case here is a death one. Kind of sad for the little one.

Re: Anyone oinking yet?

Just to be clear: the title is just a little bit of black humor.

I am sad to hear of any deaths, especially of children. People die every year from flu or complications from flu. I imagine the child probably died of pneumonia, which could have been treated. Many of the 1918 flu victims died from pneumonia, since antibiotics hadn't come about, yet.

I know of a few sick people, but no confirmed swine flu.

Re: Anyone oinking yet?

There were some possible cases in Milwaukee up here, but I haven't heard if they were confirmed yet.

Possible case here as well. No confirmation but they are apparently closing one of the local schools for a week.

That can only mean one thing. And I don't know what it is.

Re: Anyone oinking yet?

I may be infected - Bannister has said I've acted like a swine in the past, so I may be a carrier.

Really, though, I have to go to Juarez in 2-3 weeks, so I am thinking of getting some antivirals just in case.

CONSPIRACY ALERT:
Fact 1: Mexico's loose border policies allow terrorists to enter undeterred.
Fact 2: Arabs are indistinguishable from Spaniards/Mexicans.
Fact 3: Large, densely populated areas (like Mexico City) are the perfect target seeding point for air-transmitted viral bioweapons.
Fact 5: Indonesia has a large terrorist cell that works with Al-Qaeda, and both bird flu and SARS originated in that area.
Fact 6: Not too many pig farms in Arab countries.

Conclusion: This is a terrorist attack, carried out by operatives that infected themselves, walked the streets of Mexico City to curb suspicion, and are in the process of smuggling infected illegals into the country to spread the virus.

I was famous, once...

Re: Anyone oinking yet?

We have had two deadly strains of flu in the past few years...First it was the Avian Flu and now the Swine Flu. God help us all if they ever merge into one.

But then again if they do maybe the Cubs will win the series and my wife will give in to that "special" request I made.


Read it again and again and......hysteria.

Attention Hog!!

I hear ya. I have 5 cruise tickets bought and paid for. Our cruise stops in Cozumel! Sucks big time. They are cancelling some cruises and finding alternative for others. We will see.

I'm Mexican, I know, Don't go there. I mean, we get to get rid of you, but still, I don't know I desire that end to even my worst enemy, and you aren't there yet, I still hate Barney more. Or wait...maybe you have an ulterior motive to go there...

Maybe this is YOUR plan...YOU ARE THE TERRORIST!

CONSPIRACY ALERT:
Fact 1: Mexico's loose border policies allow terrorists to enter undeterred.
Just because the water can make you runny and some women are floosies is no reaosn to call us all "loose."
Fact 2: Arabs are indistinguishable from Spaniards/Mexicans. Except if you look at their heads and what they are mounted on. Arabs wear turbans and ride in camels, we wear sombreros the size of a mega-large pizza and ride dusty old burros.
Fact 3: Large, densely populated areas (like Mexico City) are the perfect target seeding point for air-transmitted viral bioweapons. That, or the millions of nerds living at millions of parental basements. We live with our parent until 40, but at least never leave our well ventilated rooms (no AC).
Fact 5: Indonesia has a large terrorist cell that works with Al-Qaeda, and both bird flu and SARS originated in that area. And we know very well that birds and pigs are exactly the same. Brilliant!
Fact 6: Not too many pig farms in Arab countries. But plenty of pigs around this forum...or at least one well known.

Conclusion: This is a terrorist attack, carried out by operatives that infected themselves, walked the streets of Mexico City to curb suspicion, and are in the process of smuggling infected illegals into the country to spread the virus.

Or you are trying to stray our attention from YOUR terrorist liason in Juarez! You are a terrorsit AND a drug dealer. And a pig. And a druggie too. And you play with Taelord and Dund.
