Hippopotamus flu. Just because people won't talk about it so much, cause half of them wouldn't be able to pronounce the word.

This is exactly what gets on my nerves - people talking about these damn flu types. Media warns against the virus and usually scares the shit out of naive people, who then spend their money on vaccine to prevent an ilness that is less dangerous than pharmacies want you to believe. Everywhere you look there are news about swine flu (hopefully it won't happen with the goat flu, but it probably will), in newspapers, on TV... People are overreacting. I didn't get the vaccine shot (nobody that i know did), i took no precautions against the virus, visited very crowded areas and after i bought a sandwich didn't wash my hands before eating, took rides on very crowded busses with people coughing all around me, and guess what? I still didn't get the swine flu.

But then again, every person i talked to thinks the same about this flu as me, they are more afraid of the side effects of the vaccine than the flu. Some of my relatives got sick with swine flu, but they're all well now.

I know three people who reckon they had swine flu, they were ill for a few days then back to work after a week, it's usually (not always) vulnerable people that it is a danger for like the very young, the very old or sick people. Most of these things get blown out of proportion, mostly by the media, then after a while people forget about it or move on to the next scare!

Geez, all these flu's are blown out of proportion, me and like 3 other people got teh bacon flu, it was nothing, im not saying we got the major contaminatwhateverthefuck swine flu that was pasted all over the media, but c'mon, more people die of the common cold rather than teh bacon flu or any other type of teh [insert random animal] flu.

EDIT; soon they're be race flu, imagine asian flu? wtf

I don't know though I havn't taken my cats to the vet for like 4 years now.
