    That's assuming you have not caught a dose of flu from your gardner...lol

    Outbreaks of strains of flu should never be underestimated, especially as each new strain of the decease seem more difficult to erradicate than the previous one. The fact that a similiar strain of flu killed upto 100 million people in the 1918-1920 epidemic and wiped out a third of the population of europe means we have much to fear from such outbreaks. Looks like getting stocked up on surgical masks. Atchooooo, cough... splutter!

    The 1918 flu pandemic (commonly referred to as the Spanish flu) was an influenza pandemic that spread to nearly every part of the world. It was caused by an unusually virulent and deadly Influenza A virus strain of subtype H1N1. Historical and epidemiological data are inadequate to identify the geographic origin of the virus.[1] Most of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise weakened patients. The pandemic lasted from March 1918 to June 1920,[2] spreading even to the Arctic and remote Pacific islands. It is estimated that anywhere from 20 to 100 million people were killed worldwide,[3] or the approximate equivalent of one third of the population of Europe,[4][5][6] more than double the number killed in World War The 1918 flu pandemic (commonly referred to as the Spanish flu) was an influenza pandemic that spread to nearly every part of the world.

    Sorry.. didn't mean to be a killjoy.. You got in before I had deleted much of the quoted post, as it is in humour section afterall..lol

    Just, dont think its a suitable subject for humour, consecuences are too dire. I had 2 relatives who had gone right though the great war. (WW1) and survived some of the worst atrocities and conditions one can only imagine, and then only to die from the flu epidemic in 1919. A common occurance in those days.

    will probably go the same way as Bird Flu, Acid Rain, Millenium bug, global warming, nuclear war etc etc they'll find something new to scare us with in a few months and we'll all still be here.
