PEOPLE!!!! Listen to me. My kids had it and it is just like the regular flu~ The media hypes everything up so you get scared and spend money on wasteless vaccines. Even before the swine Flu came around 36,000 people still die of the REGULAR FLU every year! Chill out its not that bad. Unless you have an underlying condition (which Im sure it will come out later that these 2 people had something wrong) Dont worry about it.

Did these people get the H1N1 vaccine?

A vaccine gives you a slight illness to enable your body to create an immunity against a full out assult. Could it be that their bodies were not ready for even this small amount of illness?

In 1918 there was the Spanish flu, killed millions. Also H1N1 but of the avian variety.

I prefer not to have the regular flu too. You know there's a vaccine for that? Of course it's not necessary to freak out about it, but it's smart to keep yourself protected. And sick people... stop coming to work!!!

Actually, it was called that because the people who had it would get sub dermal hemorrhages on their skin that would turn black.

This white guy loves the night, provides room and board for a black cat and will avoid any kind of syphilis no matter what color it's prefixed with. I fear large indoor crowds, losing my job, falling from high places and syphilis. OK, you were right about one of those things.

Still say the public in general needs to know the bare circumstances, age possible under lying conditions, did they receive the vacination? This wouldn't in any way infringe on the privacy of those concerned. Also was the H1N1 flu confirmed or assumed as so many are doing?

Why does the plague have to be black???
Okay, i shouldn't even have to explain this, but some people are so uneducated!!!!!!!!!!
They said the term Black Plague because there was a hige epidemis back in
the 1300's in Europe. It was a huge epidemic called the bubonis plague that killed 30 to 60% of the population there. It was also called the black plague because of the spots on the skin that would turn black.

Actually, the information that I put in my response came from a radio show I was listening to a couple weeks ago. I just wanted to verify the date and other info. Wikipedia was the third and last site I went to and it's information jived with the other two so I cut and pasted the address. Wikipedia is NOT my research center, but thanks for looking out for me Pumpkin.

It was a formal joke. He and I both knew what it was and when it came about. He was being sarcastic and so was I.
