36,000 people die annually from influenza in the US. When "Pig Flu" gets those numbers then color me concerned.


This could be as bad as the bird flu epedemic a couple of years ago. Really, the news channels need a possible disaster to keep ratings up. I wouldn't worry too much.

Wait, do people ever put bacon in poutine?

You probably could and it'd probably fit right in with the rest of the grease but I've not actually ever seen it done.

Thanks for the update, Chicken Little.

No kidding...

Talk about blowing things out of proportion. Not that the media is exactly being subtle with this story.

I'm waiting for them to discover that 'cars' are dangerous. There are thousands of deaths attributed to 'cars' every year. If you live near any or have seen one in the last week I suggest you run screaming in terror to a fortified steel box in the basement where you do nothing but watch the news and hope that the 'cars' go away.

Where are you?

Sydney, Australia. While we do have Chips-&-Gravy and Cheezy Fries here, I don't think I've ever found all three in the same dish at once.

And Poutine looks infinitely more appetising than our own Pie Floater.

Hey man, I know Springwood is a fair hike from the city, but a few of us in Sydney are trying to plan a get together in June to meet up, have a few drinks, and talk gaming. If you’re interested, check out

Yes they killed whales up and down the east coast - But in your part of the world they almost hunted crocs to extinction (although some are getting their own back).

I take it back you haven't been at the beer you have been licking Cane Toads haven't you.

Bufotenin, one of the chemicals excreted by the cane toad, is classified as a Class 1 drug under Australian drug laws. This is the same classification as heroin and marijuana. It is thought that the effects of bufotenin are similar to that of mild poisoning; the stimulating effect, which includes mild hallucinations, lasts for less than one hour.[11] Since the cane toad excretes bufotenin in very small amounts, and other toxins in relatively large amounts, toad licking could result in serious illness or death.

Classic Boy who Cried Wolf syndrome. They blow enough things out of proportion, that everyone assumes EVERYTHING is blown out of proportion. 99% of the time, that's probably a safe bet, but sometimes disasters do actually occur...

Even more "tragic", this is during our TACS test time, but the state has said that students will not be penalized or have to make up lost test day resulting from the Piggy Plaguey. That's a double win for the students.

Most school districts are still open for business as usual. But we still supliment our daughter's education at home... she knows what acetacylic acid is thanks to The Tick, and she knows that Han shoots first in Star Wars.

I've had cheese fries before, but not with gravy. Gravy + cheese + bacon = culinary perfection. We have discovered ambrosia, theobroma, soma, call it what you will. The way to apotheosis is now open!

The BBQ thing sounds good, Lilith, but it's missing two of the greatest food stuffs that Prometheus brought down to us with fire. Now the only question is, what beer would you be fit to wash this stuff down? Something hoppy? A really good IPA?

Depends on how barbecue-ish the dish is. A smoked porter would work if it had that smoky BBQ flavor, but I'd go with Lilith's lager or pilsner suggestion. Light body, crisp, easy drinkin'. You don't want something too heavy with a dish like that.

IPA would be a good fit if it had jalapenos or something suitably spicy in it; hop bitterness cuts the heat. But for a true hophead, IPAs go with EVERYTHING. :P

The only game I play with cane toads involves a Golf club...nice to know you know what licking canetoads is about. Have you been workplace tested lately?

Poutine a la Mairkurion:

Cheese, gravy, fries, heaps of broken pieces of bacon (not too small)

Of course, the cheese you choose will affect beer choice, and you could allow that to steer you back to your IPA, but what do you think?

Wanna know something unfunny???

A guy came to work, his eyes are reddish, his lips swollen and has fever. There's no law to make him return home and he insists on being here, at the office. I'm between beating him dead at the first zombie-like grunt/moan or running like hell the moment he sneezes.

If this weren't Mexico I'd be less worried -_-


Tnemeh,

I hope you've got a face mask and hand sanitizer.

...and surgical gloves, since I handle money around here. Yet, this is continuous exposure. This is not cool.

I grew up on the far north coast of New South Wales near Byron Bay and Nimbin (where the hippies still roam free) and they dry out the cane toads and smoke them.

Cane toads are tough buggers, I once ran a toad through with a fencing stake. I left thinking it was dead when I came back the next day it was hopping around in circles trying un-impale itself. I swiftly dispatched the toad.

I have seen them run over by a road train and get up and hop away.

In my youth I did explode some with fireworks their deaths were instantaneous and I hope without pain.

Most people have found that they a vulnerable to golf clubs (5 woods in particular)I don't know why but golf clubs kill them instantly.

Before anybody goes PETA on my sorry arse Cane Toads are an introduced species in plague proportions.The government sanctions a kill on sight policy.

They poison the water (creeks and water dishes) and kill endangered native animals and household pets. Anybody who has seen a cat, dog or horse die of toad poisoning will understand why they are hated so much.

I use exfoliating soaps and a sulphur based soap that so far hasn't melted my skin away. Alcohol will be a new addition to my bathing supplies, though <_<

I have often bathed myself in alcohol, and am pleased to find it helps with personal hygeine.

I'm betting this was not an "either/or" situation for Heathy...but rather a "both/and"...


First. Heath, thanks for your concern.

Now, for those curious, full list of symptoms:

-Fever past 38 Celcius
-Your joints hurt
-Constant headache
-Runny nose

If you don't have these four DON'T go to the hospital, as you actually risk getting the flu from people who actually have it and are in the hospital just like you.

If you have it, you should develop all the symptoms within 24 hours, but don't let more than 48 hours pass.

If your dead start rising and feeding on the living don't use molotov cocktails, I already mentioned in another thread the inconveniences of flaming zombies.


This warning about attack zombies with fire cannot be repeated enough. Also keep in the mind the rare intelligent zombie, who will attempt to talk you into opening the door for them (Aberzombie). Ignore them if you can't conveniently scotch them.

Also some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting. In young children, warning signs include fast or troubled breathing, a bluish skin tone and irritability.

In the UK, the request is that people get advice by phone first, rather than visit a doctor or hospital.

Oh, for the love of $DEITY.

Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is a neuraminidase inhibitor : it prevents replication of the virus by targeting the 'N1' part of H1N1.

It isn't a vaccine.
