    With your particular immune system, your conditional probability
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conditional_probability
    for having problems with this latest public health problem is higher than for other people.
    In the link, B is the state of your immune system and A is the likelihood of having a problem with this latest set of bugs.

    I guess for peace of mind you should buy the masks. . .? And the certificates on my wall have, so far, prevented walrus attacks.

    We're in Phase 5.

    Still, let's not worry too much. Any well-stocked bar should be able to combat a flu. I normally start with two glasses of red and if that does not make me feel better I bring out the big guns...a single malt.

    I've heard you don't catch it from pigs.

    Eypt killed their pigs, even though there were no cases of the flu there.

    And no way to catch it from a pig.

    Why.......


    so you can burp, fart, be hungry like 10 minutes later? No thank you.


    If it isn't covered with hair and ****'s in the open public...I don't want it.



    Ever wonder why the leanest animals on the planet...are meat eaters,

    the fattest/biggest ones are vegetarians?


    Discuss.
