Flu Facts and Other Related News to scare the shit out of you from 10/10/05


I found several good articles relating to Flu virus in the news. It seems that there has been a lot of focus on this bird flu possibly mutating into a deadly virus that could pose severe risks to humans. I also found an interesting article dealing with the Flu epidemic of 1918 that killed nearly 100 million people worldwide. If this stuff isn’t enough to scare you into getting your Flu vaccinations this year, I don’t what will.

What else could possibly happen in order to make even more people afraid to leave their house? All this talk of Flu/virus epidemics, increasing intensity with natural disasters, and terrorist attack threats seems to make moving to a neutral country and developing agoraphobia a great idea. What’s left, the news is filled with topics about the latest terrorist threats threatening the nation, or what new disease can be contracted from the food that we eat on a daily basis. Even physical contact has been challenged by the spread of AIDS, Hepatitis, and other nasty little diseases. In fact, there was even an article dealing with diseases that can be contracted from recreational activities in and around the ocean (http://AdultFriendFinder.com). We are at risk with every aspect of our daily lives in one way or another with one or more of these stories that are blown way out of proportion. To be completely honest we have always been at risk, things haven’t just changed overnight. It’s called life.

When will news media back off and stop making the American public scared with life it’s self. The necessities of life have been challenged dealing with food, sex, and the air we breathe. Sure there is some really nasty shit that you can encounter on a daily basis, but I don’t need to hear about it every time I turn on the television. It seems as though the news coverage has turned into “ambulance chasers” moving from one disaster to the next giving up to the minute coverage of absolutely nothing new like a Jerry Lewis Telethon. I’m not insensitive about what happens to people in disasters. There are just far better things to focus attention on 24 hours a day instead of death and destruction. If there are important events that have occurred, mention them. If there are channels for which people can donate or participate in relief efforts, mention them. It’s no wonder why I watch Adult swim at night. I would rather laugh than have someone try to raise my anxiety level.
