The search for truth in human action

I Hope I Get Swine Flu


So far, some 2,700 people have been hospitalized with the current “swine flu” outbreak in the US. 3 have died.

Each year, some 200,000 people are hospitalized with the normal “seasonal flu”. About 36,000 die.

2,700:3

200,000:36,000 

So for the regular flu, that’s an 18% chance of dying.

“Swine flu”, just about 00.1% chance of dying.

If I’m gonna get one or the other, I hope it’s h1n1 – the “swine flu”.

Refer to Beware the Coming [insert non-threat] Pandemic!!! for why this ridiculous hysteria started in the first place.

Hint: Fear Equals Funding
