I am so mad at that stupid pig farmer that forgot to clean up his pigs' poop right now! In my school, who knows how many people are carrying hand sanitizer around now and if you just start coughing or sneezing, people start screaming you have the swine flu. Why's everyone freaking out about it when barely anyone has it?

Now thanks to the flood and the flu, our social studies TAKS just got delayed by about 10 days (has that ever happened before?) and I have a plane ticket for the day right after school ends, and I won't be able to go anywhere if we have to end up making up the missed days.
Hi. I have a messed up sleep cycle. Thank you, scioly.

we have people that are carrying around the breathing masks as a joke, but all of our UIL activities have been canceled until May 11th, at least Scioly state was last weekend, that would have sucked if they had canceled state

It does look like today, the media seems to be backing off the story somewhat. Hopefully it won't impact nationals.

Personally, i highly doubt that this will affect nationals very much because there are four teams from the only state that has been affected by this yet, texas. Plus, i don't think that the flu has hit the pflugerville area yet (I'm referring to the division b teams). but then again, what are the odds that one of the teams going to nationals gets closed because of this so called "epidemic"?

Hmmmm....I personally dont think it'll effect nationals too much...I doubt Kelly Lane and Kealing would let a little thing like a nationwide Mexican epidemic stop them from Augusta (I know i would'nt. ;)

I know about the coconut thing (i was there when he said it to everyone)..

but, i bet there really isn't anything interesting going on in the news and so the media is exaggerating the whole swine flu thing. Honestly, have you ever heard of a school closing for a week because one student has "highly probable" swine flu????? it's a bit annoying but hey, at least we don't have schol- but trust me, after one day i will be bored-

i will probably start working on my plane for next year :D

From up in PA, where we don't have any CONFIRMED cases, people see Texas as the source and New York City as the victim(as that whole school got infected). Being that there are only about 4,000 suspected cases in a country of 300 million I really don't see why it should shut down the whole world. Anyway, despite it being in Georgia, I really wouldn't be surprised if they screened everyone from Texas and New York at nationals.
