I thank it's going to be more like 1976 flu pandemic more people got sick from the vacanations than from the flu.

Yeah, but should I wear the Klingon mask or the Antedean mask?

Just heard that all pilots flying into Australia are required by law to report any suspected cases of flu or illness.

One thing you can bet on is USA will say its safe to go outside. Probably wont hear much like 1 or 2 cases in a month over here. When you start seeing ambulance and ER packed.. keep an eye out for people collapsing in theaters. Someone should slap sanctions on Mexico for keeping the breakout hush-hush for so long.

I'd wait and see what the authorities are advising come the day.

Swine flu is contracted by touch--putting unclean hands into the mouth or eye--and it's rather hard to contract. Just wash your hands and use hand sanitizer and you should be fine.

I like my odds. lol


I believe this will really effect the movie industry. Expect low turn out numbers for all movies world wide through July 4th holiday and maybe beyond.

I agree with this statement. Water Gate woke me up to the truth about what one man can do to cover up things.
