"It was once said a black man would become president 'When Pigs Fly' and in fact, 100 days into Obama's presidency..Swine Flu"
alright but seriously. This flu thing is sick. It came all the way from Mexico but there are 2 cases that have been found in Newberry, SC (which is like 30 miles away from me). For those of you who don't know what it is, let me inform you. Swine flu is just like regular influenza, but of course they had to make it sound even more disgusting by including the word "swine" in front of it. It is a virus that is found in pigs, and is actually very rare in humans. Some people who work with pigs don't even get it that easily; However, once it gets to a human it is very contagious. Some symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, headache, chills, diarrhea, and vomiting. So in order for this spread to cease wash your hands.. please. And if you use those Anti-Bacterial hand sanitizers, look on the back label and make sure there is 62% alcohol or more in it, otherwise its like pouring water on your hands.
