Just So We're All Clear...

If I die of the swine flu, I'd prefer the word,
"swine" to not be said at my funeral.

Thank you Wikipedia for showing us that most Americans have lost their minds:

"The 2009 flu outbreak in humans that is widely known as "swine flu" apparently is not solely due to a swine influenza virus. It is due to a new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 that derives from one strain of human influenza virus, one strain of avian influenza virus, and two separate strains of swine influenza virus. The origins of this new strain are unknown, and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reports that this strain has not been isolated in swine.[3] It passes with apparent ease from human to human, an ability attributed to an as-yet unidentified mutation.[4] The strain in most cases causes only mild symptoms and the infected person makes a full recovery without requiring medical attention and without the use of antiviral medicines.[5]"

So people need to quit freaking out. I am going to a CrossFit competition in Forth Worth this weekend (i.e. a bunch of men moving weights around and killing themselves as fast as possible!)

So my mom says this yesterday, "Fort Worth shut down all their schools for so many weeks, did they cancel your little competition?" "No will be fine." So that blurb is for all the people who may be thinking about, or have probably already lost their mind for no good reason (this all assuming Wikipedia is's reliable right?), for that matter surely the Lord can handle a little flu, even if it has "swine" stamped on the front...
