Joy of Flu

This makes one feel good.

Perhaps this may also be the catalyst which brings down the Communist Party of China if it gets worse and a real panic begins with the first human cases?

If China goes first, which is highly possible for any part of the other continents, could we be far behind? Shock
Joy of flu?

There must be something pervert in mentioning joy in context with a disease with a high mortality rate.

Anyway, I have developed a conspiracy theory in which too much of media attention for bird flu is a result of "bovine mafia" conspiracy. A revenge for falling prices of beef after mad cow disease.
Play it safe. Eat soybeans.

Yea, sort of like the SARS ordeal in the media.

But, if this is hyped up enough, especially for the people over there (assuming they find out), will it cause panic in China and create internal chaos....especially if the flu spreads and more deaths occur. In the end, whether it be media hyping ot actual cases, will something happen?

BTW, Joy of Flu was meant to be "The Joy of Flu", as some weak attempt at sarcasm.
it would make future generations naturally immune to many diseases current in our systems. how is a disease NOT a joy to mankind? it tests us and makes our immune systems up to date. with no diseases, our bodies would enter a state of Zero Growth and the human race could become extinct after the first microbe entered our body...

i like disease, but that may be becuase i think of the bigger picture.

Yes and no. In south America, natives drink water from the Amazon, Indians wash in Ganges. If you or I would try it, we wouldn't get out of hospital for years. Natives have a good immune system, but also a high mortality rate of children.

Not really. There are several ways of immune response, viruses and bacteria mostly activate adaptive immune response (antibodies) that can be lost within a few years or can endure until you die. But it is never inherited by offspring.

In a remotely related issue, tamiflu apparently causes hallucinations. Hm, so far I was just eating oranges, I might switch soon.
