Yeah "waste of space?" That's pretty harsh.

I'm not going to engage in the old "he started it" game but you're pretty much out of line.

This was a discussion about swine flu, the seriousness of it and the spin (or lack there of) in its media coverage. My posts have all been related to that. Aside from this one, which I had to take time out to defend myself from your unwarranted ad homonyms. It’s a little disappointing that this is the type of "discussion" I get from a café regular.

What's even more disappointing is that his behavior is known and tolerated. I hate to say it, but if you're going to stick around here... get used to it. They don't make him stop.

Quite interesting. Thought that's what they made yellow cards and frendliness bars for. Instead they pass out icons? Oh well, nbd. Thanks for the heads up. ;-D


Back on topic. Just watched a segment with Dr. Sanjeep Guptha(there is no way I spelled that correctly) on Larry King Live and he said that according to the CDC, the swine flu is going to be just that, a flu -- with flu like symptoms that one should be able to recover from, much like the standard flu bug. So the story is that there is pretty much no story aside from giving the normal flu another name? :-? Bird Flu had more bark than this one.

No, silly. Those were introduced solely for Mookie's amusement. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Isn't mookie always complaining about how low his bar is?

I'll tell you what, until this entire "swine flu" is over, I'm not going anywhere near pork or bacon...

Paris Hilton says "I don't eat that" when asked about swine flu in an online video. She's not the only one confused about the outbreak.

Others have vowed to stop eating pork. Some, worried about germs spreading in confined spaces, won't fly — anywhere. Or they think petting zoos and farm visits are off limits.
