The flu that for most people is survivable but sucks ass and occasionally does kill especially for babies, the elderly, and the immunocompromised?

Oh okay let me be more specific. Where I live people very very rarely get it, it's usually over in a week or so and we generally keep it at bay with vitamins and stuff. I don't know what American diets/lifestyles are actually like so the statistics might be totally different there, but here most of the people  I've talked to about it are usually just of the opinion that it's not worth getting sick for a week or so every year from the vaccine, just to avoid the chance of getting sick for a week or so from the flu they may or may not catch that year. :P

Dudes, I didn't even get the H1N1 vaccine when that disease was Coming For Us All. Idk. I just am not worried about catching the flu, and I don't see why everyone feels the need to make my personal choice their business.
I actually have a really stupid story about the H1N1 times. This dude that I knew totally freaked out (because apparently he thought that you could only get it if you carried pigs blood in you which ??? but anyway) and he literally flipped a table because he was so freaked out about it and was convinced that it was the beginning of an apocalypse.

H1N1?

Ah, H1N1. My entire school was convinced we were all gonna die of it. Good times, good times.

Besly, maybe you'd be more famiiiar with the term Swine Flu?

Same at my school. And then when one girl started faking it? Oh god. She put fake blood all over the bathroom mirror and people thought it was real and it was just a goddamn mess (literally too)

Ah! Thanks Blue. Yeah I don't know if I got that but the one time I've had flu was when that was going around. Was one rotten week. ::)

my middle school was filled with a lot of overly dramatic (and potentially sociopathic, but that's another story)  kids...

I mean I said that as a half joke, but all schools have overly dramatic kids. The latter half though... trust me when I say that those were specific to my school

The H1N1 scare was honestly overblown by media hype. I should probably shut up now because we don't want a rant about this.

Oh look a friv confession by yours truly (♡): Since I'm now aware that my work doesn't care about facial piercings I'm considering getting one... or two more. I probably shouldn't because I don't need to spend any more money and I probably have enough holes in my face but oh! The temptation :P
