Evolution, hmmm.

Evolution of H1N1 virus.

Fall pandemic wave should be around BM2009.

Public gatherings banned?

Discuss.

I will assess the situation in August.

Note, flu is more active in winter than summer. We may be safer in September than in October/November.

If I catch the flu at BM I'm only an hour and a half away from home. We have a seven day Mexican cruise scheduled for mid-July. Currently cruise lines are cancelling Mexican port calls. Worse comes to worse we sail around the ocean for seven days getting fat and drunk :twisted:

There should be an option for will attend even if there is no event. It's the only place we can go where 'they' can only tether us with the sat phone.

Playa alkai dust is a natural anit-viral cleans. Burn contaminents and remain isolated behind the orange fence. Ticket says hazzards including death are possible.

Oh really. September isn't flu season. If we catch the damn swine flu it's going to be from someone coming from the southern hemisphere (New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Chile) where it is flu season. If they can spread it in tthose hot, dry conditions.

Everybody's going to be wearing dust masks anyway.

Everything does not happen continuously at any one moment in the universe. Neither does everything happen everywhere in it.

There are no summits without abysses.

When the end of the world is mentioned, the idea that leaps into our minds is always one of catastrophe.

Life is born and propagates itself on the earth as a solitary pulsation.

In the last analysis the best guarantee that a thing should happen is that it appears to us as vitally necessary.

More:
Reproduction doubles the mother cell. Thus, by a mechanism which is the inverse of chemical disintegration, it multiplies without crumbling. At the same time, however, it transforms what was only intended to be prolonged. Closed in on itself, the living element reaches more or less quickly a state of immobility. It becomes stuck and coagulated in its evolution. Then by the act of reproduction it regains the faculty for inner re-adjustment and consequently takes on a new appearance and direction. The process is one of pluralization in form as well as in number. The elemental ripple of life that emerges from each individual unit does not spread outwards in a monotonous circle formed of individual units exactly like itself. It is diffracted and becomes iridescent, with an indefinite scale of variegated tonalities. The living unit is a center of irresistible multiplication, and ipso facto an equally irresistible focus of diversification.

How can we tell if someone is wearing a mask because of the dust or because of the flu?

I brought the flu virus with me to BM last year.
Generously gifted as it was by an American sat next to me on an internal US flight on the first day of my holiday.

I was fine!.. except the two days I spent asleep while we were building our camp, then the 3 bags of saline that made me shit myself all through the following night and then developed a secondary throat and ear infection that rendered me incapable of hearing or speaking beyond a 2ft radius for the next 3 weeks.

Many saw this as a blessing of course.

Manifold are the viruses that ye may encounter, my friends.
May thy gods shield thee from the worst of their lot.
