Zuckerman's Famous Pig

...or "Why this Swine Flu crap is crap"

Fact: Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918 infected 28 percent of the population worldwide and 2.5% of them died.

Wisdom: If it happened again today, at worst, 7 out of 10 people would NEVER GET SICK...and the 3 out of 10 that did...97.5% of them would survive.

This is given the ground rules in 1918. Needless to say, the public health infrastructure of 2009 is much improved.

Oh...and there arent entire continents at war with one another now either.

Nothing to see here folks...move along.
