Relax

So R1N1 swine flu will probably end the world, right?

No?

OK. So … we’re freaking out about this? From what I understand, the vast majority of those who have contracted the disease merely had to stay home in bed, drink some OJ, sleep and catch up on their Netflix queue. Not to dismiss those that have unfortunately died from it, but the seasonal flu is much more dangerous (as it kills tens of thousands each year). This will probably be a major strain of the seasonal flu in the next few years, according to the experts they have on NPR – that’s a much scarier thought, considering that they’re still coming up with vaccines. Hopefully it won’t have mutated before there’s plenty of vaccination out there.

Quite honestly, I don’t care. I heard someone I work with totally freak out about this early this week. The same man went off this morning because of some other stupid, inconsequential thing, and in doing so has really pissed off the lady that GIVES US OUR PAYCHECKS each week. Who the fuck does that? Oh yeah, dumbasses who don’t know how to take a breath and say to themselves, “Oh, it’s not that big of a deal.” Or, you know, he needs to “relax.”

I really want him to get swine flu now. A really bad case.
