  • The funny thing is. The face masks aren't really helping, They need to be replaced every 20 minutes and also they protect the person you come in contact with, not you (food for thought).

  • I thought like 200 people in two countries got the swine flu? not 90. and 150 died so far and counting. BUT I get what you are saying that is ridiculous....some people dont care, life is a game so lets play?

  • 615 confirmed cases of Swine Flu and to 19 deaths according to the WHO. Granted these are just confirmed deaths but really, if there was something would the results be more substantial.

  • I think because people still feel as if HIV/AIDS is a "gay" disease and affects only those type of people, whereas flu, like cancer, doesn't discriminate. Stupid reasoning, but I can kind of understand it. Just a theory.
