    Default Swine flu predicted to affect half of America

    Anybody hear about the new presidential Swine flu predictions? Apparently, more than half the country (United States) will be infected with Swine flu this fall, and there will be around 90,000 deaths in America.

    Dunno about vaccine generating money, but I know a good epidemic scare can generate a lot of distraction from, say, a failing domestic agenda.

    For example.

    I know right? I am the CDC! Or at least more reliable anyways...

    On a more serious note: The annual disease X hype is far beyond irritating. It's the same old shtick every year: Some disease rises up in *Insert developing or 3rd world country here*, and the news media whores it out and milks the extremely cowardly and gullible masses for every penny of it's worth, where organizations like the CDC pander to the fear-mongering media, issuing grave warnings about the disease, and then it fades until the next one, where the cycle repeats itself.

    I mean, I wouldn't want to get it anyway, because having the flu sucks, but...

    during a normal flu outbreak not even half the population gets it. In the influenza outbreak of 1918 affected over 25% of the US population.


    50>25.

    ...wtf.
