    Is it going to turn into an actual epidemic? Another SARS or bird flu? Or just the legacy media coming up with this week's scare tactic to keep everyone perpetually terrified?

    We need a good cleansing of the population anyway. Bring it on.

    If that's what is to be then that what has to be. I didn't in any way exempt myself from the purging.

    Purging has a connotation of hard weapons, that's ok. I'm not interested in biologicals.

    Purging just makes me think of throwing up.

    WWII barely registered a blip on human population compared to the two times animal to human transmitted diseases tried to end everything. I appreciate the freak out and swift containment attempts no matter how many of these we hear about.

    Yes - I guess that one was better at spreading than killing though now that I look at actual numbers (on par with WWII). 500 million infected and 50 million deaths from an H1N1 virus.
