Stream of consciousness... [May. 5th, 2009|12:52 am]
[mood |awake]

I should continue cleaning, and I will, in just a minute. I'm not looking forward to getting used to a new service, but then again at the same time I get to update both without going to any effort. That's good.

Besides, now my rancid thoughts are backed up in three locations, LJ, DW, and on my PC. And let's face it, if something should happen that is able to effect all three of those locations at the same time, well, I'll probably have much more serious problems to deal with. Y'know, like a meteor hitting the Earth, Swine 'flu actually becoming a genuine concern rather than a piece of overblown media hype, etc.

I could rant about Swine 'flu for hours. I was very disappointed. Here I thought we might finally get the human race thinning pandemic I'd been hoping for, something on a scale with Spanish 'flu, and it's another damp squib like bird 'flu (and yes I know this has got some bird 'flu in it, but that just makes it all the more disappointing). In many respects, I don't want people to die, but thinning out the race by a good percentage might slow the damage being done by us thoughtless and greedy apes.


Oh, now I want to rant about Twitter, but I'm not going to. *resists*

I drank V so I'd have the mental energy to clean/sort/baby-proof. Of course I'm physically rooted, so it's not really been that helpful. Okay, must go clean now...

Every so often in an article or even on the TV somebody will point out how regular flu usually kills 1000 or so Australians every year and then get back to the 100 or so that ManBirdPig flu has killed worldwide so far. I guess the thing is that every time they find a flu that kills healthy adults instead of the young, lame and old they get worried. If it really is the big one then you need to be on it from the start rather than waiting to see whether it is real or just another pretender. We can probably look forward to more false alarms until we are all wiped out by Cane Toad flu.
