    What do you all think about the swine flu? Is there anyone who lives in or around the affected areas, any afraid they're going to get it?

    What do you think about the seriousness of it all?

    Me personally, I know no one is trying to pass this off as an Armageddon type thing. But it IS serious. I mean, sometimes we don't know how to fix it. And when it comes to certain illness, they can spread FAST. And who knows... anything has the potential of becoming a world changing epidemic.

    I live in Minnesota. A ways north of any swine flu cases so far. I'm more afraid of AIDS, and killer mosquitoes at this point. But, like I said, that can all change if no one gets a handle on it.

    *For fun, can you remember any other doomsday scares the world has overcome? What are some world changing threats that still exist??

    Like SARS:

    Bird Flu:

    yes im in texas were there are 26 people
    who have it and yes im afraid im going to get it

    Re: Swine Flu

    i live here in New Mexico and im not afraid ofthe flu i say the hell with the flu cuz it really doesnt matter cuz if we are to over come it then we will, but if we dont then o well. it is like all the other disease in this world they wont stop unless we are meant to stop it. in ths case right know we arent meant but who know in the future it could have a cure.
    I've lost everything I once held dear to me all i have felt is hope and with it I''ll push myself forward and follow the even ending stream of life.....

    I think the swine flu is just ver pushed up although I dont really live in a affected area I really dont think its that bad ok like 120 people have died of it but like thousands and thousands die every day because they dont have anything to eat or no clean water to drink but that isnt really that important either isnt it

    Over all you are correct, how ever there have been only up to a total of 9 deaths so far confirmed. 8 in Mexico (not a 108, that was a mistake) and 1 in the US.
