    swine flu is just media hype. Unless your a baby or old person, (or went to mexico very recently), then there really is nothing to worry about.

    Also, face masks are useless against swine flu. You would have to change it at least twice a day, which will get costly, and in addition the virus is so small that most masks will let it go right though it.

    you guys are so stupid,
    THE FLU killed more people than this swine stufff.
    everyone keeps over exagerating everything
    and freaks out if you get the snifffles or starts coughing
    YOU HAVE MORE OF A RISK DIEING FROM CAUSES OF CHOKING, CAR ACCIDENTS, CANCER, ….ETC.

    chill out.

  • Reply PierceTheVeilOfMaya May 16, 2009 at 1:59 am

    Thats why the spanish peopel causing this need to keep out of amercian (not being mean) until the swine flu is gone. If there are farmers with swines they need to either try to stay away from them or go ahead and try to cook em' up, lol!

    Car accidents and choking are easily preventable.

    People are overreacting more than exagerating.

  • Reply iHasaComputer May 20, 2009 at 12:08 am

    -Maniworld1996…. it is Mr.Piggems fault in a way
    People who work with poultry and swine, especially people with intense exposures, are at increased risk of zoonotic infection with influenza virus endemic in these animals, and constitute a population of human hosts in which zoonosis and reassortment can co-occur.

    Zoonosis is any infectious disease that is able to be transmitted from other animals

  • Reply Nervakis May 21, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    all swine flu is, is just a strain of flu that came from a pig. Just like "swine" flu the regular flu can kill you just the same.

    thats raccist.
    the common cold is more severe here in the US, than the swine flu. The cold killed hell of a lot more people than the swine flu. Now its just annoying how people sneeze and cough, and someone out of a crowd says that they have the swine flu.

  • Reply Julio Rodriguez June 20, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    finally someone who understands. The damn media over reacts eveyone to believing every cough is sign of swine flu. Now the whole damn human race has another raccist comment to say to mexicans. i hate it.

  • Reply crimsonheroX7 July 8, 2009 at 7:42 am

    so lets think, you're obese and its hot outside, your arms and legs hurt from exercising, you're coughing because of dust, the coughings making your throat sore, an you just ate a shit load of candy and soda and you got diarrhea and you had to throw up

    now just what if, you're at a party and ALL of that stuff happened by coincidence, EVERYONE is gonna think you have the swine flu

    and if anyone here has the swine flu, i'd recommend the best doctor in the world:

    DOCTOR OCTAGONAPUS BLAGHHHH!!

  • Reply nicholas felch November 5, 2009 at 2:41 pm

    well if that's the case you should just stay home and take meds to stop the fever and coughing and get plenty of bed rest so your immune system is not down and so your body can fight the infection

  • Reply nicholas felch November 5, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    don't trust this vid stay away form pork because even if it is cooked it could still spread how do you thank people died from mad cow disease. and don't trust the H1N1 shots because they have not been tested and proven to work the shot could kill you to.

  • Reply Skye Raven November 5, 2009 at 9:03 pm

    Swine flu and seasonal are basically the same.
    Being an EMT I know that wearing a face mask won't protect you as much as the vid says.
    Swine flu is dramatic, seasonal flu kills more people.

  • Reply Jeff W November 10, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    LOL thats funny. I dont shake people hands no more…nasty mother fuckers. I just do the little 'bow'. You get some funny reactions when someone sticks their hand out to meet you and you just bow and smile.

    Beginning of October I had a pretty nasty flu. Was kind of nasty because I would cough up pghlegm that had brownish spots in it. Was sick for about 12 days! last time I was sick was about 1.5-2 years ago. I rarely get sick. I NEVER go for flu shots or take prescription drugs.

  • Reply Jeff W November 10, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    The H1N1 virus shouldnt even really be called 'Swine Flu'.
    In Canada we refer to it as 'pandemic H1N1 influenza virus'.
    It was originally called Swine Flu because laboratory testing showed that some of the genes in this new virus were similar to influenza viruses that normally circulate in pigs (swine).

    What makes H1N1 'scary' is that it contains a combination of genes from pigs (swine), bird (avian) and human influenza viruses that have never previously been detected in humans and swine.

    @colorfulcrisis first of all there is proof that the strains of swine flu is man made and second to make a vaccin it has to be a deadly world wide pandemic and evolve. swine flu is neither of this. the vaccine contained squalene wich can trigger guillain barre symptom and/or sterilness.
