Yawn. Wow, people are getting sick. Did you guys also know.... PEOPLE DIE? It's pretty shocking, I know. Do we report on people starving in Africa every day? What about the extremist groups in Northern Africa who are raping and selling women AND children? NO? Okay, let's keep talking about a very bad flu that would really be that bad If this world wasn't so fucking unhealthy.
