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...

I was somewhat disappointed when I finally got around to looking at the buzz on swine flu to realise that it was a flu that had basically hit Mexico. I mean, sure, it was spread via international travel to a range of other countries, but for the amount of buzz we were getting here, to not have any confirmed cases in this country made the media buzz just that little bit more hyped. And really, it's a flu. They're all dangerous to one degree or another, but if you have basic hygiene and medical care the problem is remarkably manageable.

Having said all this, I would love to see cane toad flu. That would just be awesome.

I suspect with the hopeless cases of Cane Toad flu, they just beat you to death with a tennis racket.

Did I ever point you at the scientist who was racing cane toads? There were a few articles out, one here for example.

Perhaps the cure for Cane Toad flu would be to eat large amounts of prickly pear?
