Title: Pig flu? we all doomed or what?
Post by: Melkor on April 27, 2009, 07:27:54 PM
http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25391072-2703,00.html

anyone been following this? I only started reading about it yesterday but 100 or so dead in a few days, victims in the 20-40 age bracket, and transmission between people not from animals to people (wasn't that why bird flu didn't kill us all?). Could get interesting if it gets out of control, or it could just be a flash in the pan like SARS. Anyone here with medical knowledge and can enlighten me?

Lol, I kept refreshing until I started in Madagascar... still didn't win... they closed their own fucking port before I got out, and I was running as a highly infectious, completely symptomless bacteria (from memory) with maximum resistances and shit. Fucking scientific geniuses... they must have sacrificial scientist agents who take random bodily fluid samples from every one in the world.

The few times I did get into Madagascar, some other lame ass country would wise up and shut down everything.

Fuck, imagine if in real life only Madagascar survived, and repopulated the earth. I mean, you'd EXPECT most pathogens of such high order to originate from there.

I just heard a short news flash about it earlier so I don't know the full details. This movie I just watched last night came to mind though - Doomsday. Surprised I hadn't heard about it before as it's pretty kick ass and has some cool action in it, but Jez told me about it. It's like a cross between 28 Days Later, Aliens and Mad Max, so I recommend checking it out.

Have you seen 'Smoke em if you got em'? that has a Doomsday theme, not a bad movie. It's the end of the world and the survivors have radiation sickness, they dont have long to live so they all get fucked up on drugs. One scene this guys is offered a 'bong and a bang' he doesn't know what it is but he's dying anyway so thinks fuck it why not. He has the bong then they grab him and stick his head in a microwave, thats his bang  :laugh:

Is that the one in scotland with the cannibals and medieval survivalists? not bad, but 28 days/weeks later is far better. The disease effects were cool though.

wikipedia this morning says death toll up to 149, was 103 yesterday.

Edit: 149 confirmed http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25398262-12377,00.html

You've got to keep in context that Mexico isn't exactly world-renound for its medical care services. Still, sounds like it could be quite serious untreated. Thankfully the WHO got their act together with the whole H5N1 thing and are much more prepared.

Just remember that if you've got the flu, stay at home unless it gets really bad. This thing doesn't have a 100% mortality rate, looks to be more like 2-3% like bird flu was, so you don't want to spread it everywhere just like a regular flu.

If 100,000 people die in one week from it and the infected keeps rising its something to be afraid of..
other than that its another media plot to stir shit.

more people die from other diseases each day, reports??
fucking crock of pig shite

The difference is that its a new mutation of a disease we haven't seen before. We shouldn't be surprised, that's exactly what viruses do to survive.

And the big problem with these strains of virus, the ones made of a cocktail of viruses from other animals, is that humans have no natural immunity to it and, like the Black Plague, it attacks people who would otherwise be considered young and healthy. But you've gotta remember that even pandemics like the Black Plague only had about a 2% mortality rate, too. The reason an absoulte biblical amount of people died at the hands of that virus is because they didn't have antibiodics.

But I completely agree with the amount of typical media shit stirring happening at the moment. People have got to realise that when they see the word PANDEMIC it actually means, according to WHO, the fufillment of the following criteria;

* Emergence of a disease new to a population.
* Agents infect humans, causing serious illness.
* Agents spread easily and sustainably among humans.

Theres nothing about killing BILLIONS of people in there, just that theres a new virus in town and we need to be snappy about controlling it before that ~2% blows out of proportion in real terms.

Yeah, from what I've heard it's pretty easily treated and we wouldn't be in too much of a threat down here. But when isn't the media focussing on the negative and sensationalising things..  :hmm:

Yeah that's the one. I just liked it for the pure action and destruction, I had to stop myself from picking the holes in it after a while but I like it's obvious nods to other classic films. It's triggered me to download "A Boy And His Dog" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Boy_and_His_Dog) now (which is conveniently available on the internet archive due to lapsed copyright), which incidentally gets a bit of a tribute in the Fallout games apparently.
I've had 28 weeks later for ages now but haven't watched it yet. 28 days later was ok but I didn't think it was that memorable.

Bear in mind it has a 2% mortality rate in a crowded shithole developing country with lacklustre medical care. Also bear in mind that existing strains of influenza kill half a million people every year anyway.

Media hyperbole is making my working life fucking miserable.

tl;dr swine flu is about as scary as the common cold

if you didn't think much of 28 days later then you probably wont think much of 28 weeks later, still it has some brutal scenes, the bit where the infection moves through the crowded basement was pretty fucked up. More guns this time too, though how a mob of infected could take on an abrams tank is beyond me, those beasts would just crush them.

They reckon this pig flu is in New Zealand, you would think if any animal based disease was going to get the kiwis it would be from the sheep. Still, if anyone dies from this here just about every cunt will be stocking up on face masks. I'm just not going to leave the house, but thats no different from what I normally do anyways.

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25402852-601,00.html

at the end of that article it says the death rate from a generic pandemic virus would be 2.4%, but with appropriate medical care that should be halved. Still thats over 200 000 people if there was a pandemic here, but at least the unemployment rate would decrease!

Im in Las Vegas right now, flew in from Los Angelas about 3 days ago and going to NYC tomorrow.

Not bragging  :eyebrows:, but to put things in perspective....

Since we landed in LA, they had 'The worst outbreak'. Also NYC is having an 'epidemic' and 'alarming number of cases reported'.

Its all over the news, but its a lot of 'Today Tonight' style stories where the cut to footage/interviews of concerned parents and medical experts.

Its reported about a lot of deaths, but they dont mention that the deaths are a lot of elderly people and (sadly) newborn babies.

Cant wait to get back to Australia  :laugh: :hmm:

No signs of trouble and they'll shut down everything... Made a symptomless bacteria last night, max infectivity, zero symptoms... Madagascar as usual, managed to psychically detect the bacteria... Australia also managed to survive being forsaken, once I upped the symptoms.

Yeah, yeah, blah blah whatever....

So this year it's "death by pig".  Next year we will all be in imminent danger of death by a new pandemic, or a terrorist threat, or a Tsunami, or a plague of Cane Toads, or a Sins of the Father album, or zombies, or swarms of killer bees, or fuck, who knows?

We all die eventually.  


Once you get that jacked into your skull, life simplifies somewhat.  You can stop worrying about death because worrying aint gonna make you immortal.  We END, and it aint pretty, but it IS inevitable.... and frankly, I didn't expect to have lived THIS long so every day is a bonus, some of them are even worth getting out of bed for.

Ladies and gentlemen, you are all doomed.  Everyone of you fuckers is gonna check out somehow, but it would be way sweeter to die from a possessed flu strain that kills in days than a nasty, painful and drawn-out death from bowel cancer.

Embrace the pig.

yeah, and its completely false. Not one of them is even right, and there is no year of the chicken (its rooster) or pig (its boar). Of course, knowing this limited amount of knowledge prompted me to check it, and as I suspected, its not even close...

Rangitis: Inflamation of the asshole.  Spread by imflaming other assholes.  Treated by stopping hanging around flaming assholes.

Rangomilalitis: Swollen eyes from watching excessive porn.  Spread by sharing jars of hand cream. Treated by watching christian television or coldplay videos.

Rangatheria: Lockjaw caused by overuse of the throat muscles.  Spread by practicing deapthroat techniques on chair legs.  Treated by giving furniture to Good Sammys.

Rangalopagus: a red hairy elephant disease caught by watching Sesame Street.  Spread by humping big bird.  Untreatable, fatal and absurdly amusing.

Ranga Fever: A disease that causes attraction to horrific looking mammals.  Spread by sheer animal desperation and bad eyesight. Treated by the application of a common sense patch.
