Confirmed number of flu cases jumps to 331 – CNN.com

Confirmed number of flu cases jumps to 331 – CNN.com.

Oh my God.  What the hell are these news people on, anyway?  This article reads like we’re all about to catch the new Black Plague.  Everywhere I look, people are almost panicked about this swine flu.  If you read that article, you’ll find out that the 331 cases aren’t in Arkansas.  That’s not the number even in the U.S.  That’s WORLD-FRICKIN-WIDE!  That’s right, folks.  Out of 6.77 BILLION people worldwide, 331 of them have confirmed cases of swine flu.  That’s about 0.000005% of the world’s population.

So, tell me this.  WHY is everyone freakin’ out?  The Black Plague killed MILLIONS.  This looks to kill less than the yearly flu that we deal with every single year!

Auto accidents alone kill about 40,000 people every year in just the U.S.  Stop the panic!  Be smart, take care of yourself, wash your hands, and get on with your lives!
