The "YEEAAAAHH" at the end really makes it though.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about it, but I can't live my life in fear.

Two children in the State of Maryland have this virus. But, they have relatives who were recently in Mexico.

I keep checking this thread hoping someone will magically make it into the AWESOMEST gif ever




And at this point, there's no reason to fear yet. Just show general caution and concern. Ther are effective antivirals, and thanks to avian flu scares we probably are more well prepared then we would be otherwise. Yes, I know the threat level or what have you has gone up, but it's still a day by day thing.

The White House is issuing a health advisory outlining "protective measures" for anyone who traveled on President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico, after a member of the U.S. delegation came down with flu-like symptoms – and tests on his family showed they’re probably infected with the swine flu.

The individual – an advance security staffer for Energy Secretary Steven Chu –appears to have spread the flu to his wife, son and nephew. All three have tested probable for swine flu, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said.

The staffer was at a working dinner Obama attended with Mexican officials April 16.

“The president has not experienced any symptoms,” Gibbs said
Could all this have been at attempt to assassinate Obama?

Even Sir Noel G is getting caught up in this

Noel's 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere' (28/04/09)

It's all got a bit mad over here. This swine flu malarky is freaking people out. Landed at Crack'arse airport yesterday. All the ground staff are wearing those little white face masks! ALL OF THEM. It was like something out of another Stephen King novel. I suddenly feel quite naked without one.

Then if that wasn't bad enough my mam called me at that very moment and tells me to be "careful" or I WILL die of pig flu. I swear at that point I did a massive sneeze and the entire airport fell silent and started to stare!! I WANT A MASK!!!

Crack'arse, it must be said, is not the most glamourous of destinations, despite what we were led to believe as kids from that film "Gregory's Girl".

I currently have an armed guard outside my room! What does that say? Am I vulnerable to a robbery from room service? Anyway, could be worse, at least the sun's out and I have a balcony and it's 86*. Mind you, what about snipers (as Bobby Gillespie once said to me as we were getting pissed in my back garden)??

In a bit.

GD.
