That website was the hit of the night at work last night. Everyone who entered my office asked about swine flu and I pulled that site up several times to give them more info.

And bacon already has a means of revenge...it's called cholesterol. :D

I know but the first 2 patients of the day come in wanting to be tested for Swine Flu because of the news last night :mad2: so I figured I would let folks get it from the source the news is messing it up with.

You will be glad to know that I skipped the bacon with breakfast this morning.

I had ham instead!

And now the news is going to fear-monger this into becoming a near panic. They are so good at herding the sheeples.

I think teh Conficker virus is teh source

This morning, Good Morning America described the swine flu to be spreading at "lightning speed around the globe". I can understand the CDC's precautionary stance, but the panic inducing media hype is pure BS!

In the US, there are 35,000 flu related deaths each year. This flu presents itself to be no more powerful than the average ones we experience here.
So, let's all PANIC!

Fear sells. It sells better than anything else. News is now more about what sells than responsible journalism.

I believe that we are so used to our fear injections, that we are now addicted to it. Think about it....

Here's a book I'm looking forward to reading:
The Science of Fear: Why We Fear the Things We Shouldn't--and Put Ourselves in Greater Danger

I like how it adds the line at the end of the title "and put ourselves in greater danger". Just sayin.
