    I heard this today on ABC News:

    "Experts say that the best way to prevent airline passengers from contracting SARS is to keep those infected off of planes."

    I am speechless at the moment.

    Or they keep everybody who hasn't got SARS off the planes. That way only those with SARS can affect those with SARS also.

    Well it's not very effective... China has, what, 1.5 billion people. How many have died? A thousand? (ok, not putting a smiley here, dying isn't fun, even if it's "just" a thousand)

    This isn't a very big or "dangerous" decease even. It's just very hyped. There are far more common and dangerous deceases.

    The experts could have just as easily said that not flying at all would keep people from contracting SARS on airlines.

    Now now ladies. If you're going to start acting like small children in the playground the threads gonna have to be closed.

    Octopus, I really don't think that :
    is big, clever or by any means funny.

    There is nothing funny about death.

    Experts say that death isn't funny, and that the way to prevent dying it to continue living.

    A year or so ago it was Deep Vein Thrombosis that everyone was panicing about. As Zendric says it is all hyped up by the media. I am sure there will be another disease or disorder that we will all be talking about in another six months.
