In case you haven't been keeping up with the news, we're all going to die: http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/24/swine.flu/

Plague, it's what's for dinner.

Man... all eight people who got sick recovered? Lamest plague ever.

But seriously, we're all gonna die.

Well, looks like we are fucked. Alas.

I guess I'd better go find some surgical masks and hand sanitizer to go with my five pounds of pasta.

Edit: Apparently we should be stocking up on condoms, too. Not just for safe sex, but also for barter with other crazy survivalists.

Seriously, it's going to be some Mad Max shit up in this bitch.

I'm off to buy a shotgun, an assault rifle, and a metric ton of ammo before flu epidemics or Obama takes them away.

I'm willing to bet these survivalists are underestimating. You may want to splurge and buy a rest-of-your-lifes-worth.

Alternatively, if you want to save some money, have Alex invest in a vasectomy. But really, when civilization collapses, your money will be meaningless so saving isn't that big of an issue.

Look, you have at least until 2012 before the end of the world.

Yeah... I don't believe in that sort of thing.

Besides, we'll need all the children we can get to work the land.

But you didn't say anything about the condoms... I sense some gender discrimination.

The US (And maybe the rest pf the world, for all I know) really has an apocalypse fetish right now. I really can't go a week without hearing someone talking about the end of the world.

It was nice knowing you all.

This is America.

The end of the world doesn't affect us.

Surely capitalism will shield us.
