What the hell just happened? It hit Mexico like some kind of fire storm with 24/7 CNN coverage for a week or more. Later it jumps on aircraft and begins infecting around the globe with more CNN coverage, Vaccines are mandatory for certain sectors of public service and others, then the lid blows off in the alternate news forum while CNN quietly withdraws looking for other bells to ring. The WHO declares a pandemic, fizzle, fizzle, fizzle. pfttt and it's out? Where did it go? :confused:

Strangely, the incidence of seasonal flu is also reduced way below the normal levels for this time of year. At work i was vaccinated and trained on masks and gowns, just in case. Never used them.
It was way less serious than it was made out to be. So good question: where did it go?

Where did it go?

That's not really a question, isn't it? There is only one way: It went all cash like straight into the pockets of the pharma industry :yuck:.

One theory is that it will come back stronger like the Spanish flu did. I think they (pharmaceutical companies) are going to run this scenario as often as they can. Then there will be the true pandemic and everyone will take the boy who called wolf attitude.

It went to the same place as bird flu - the backwater of culture consciousness.

the swine flu is hanging out with the killer bees and the bird flu:laughing::laughing:

I am convinced I had it in september although they weren't testing for it here then because 'it wasn't in Bridgewater'. But I had all the symptoms. Still got the vaccine just to make sure.

LoL ..... I'm just wondering what the heck I got injected with? Maybe a liquid micochip so they can track me and read my mind? :eek:
Quick Bambi...where'd we put those tin foil hats we fashioned up a couple of months ago? :shrug: ;)
