    Just to ease you all a little bit, don't be too worried about SARS. It is about the same as the West Nile Virus from last year, except this is a mutated form of influenza.

    In the 30's there was a form of influenza that killed about 2 million people worldwide. In the 60's there was one too. Every 30 or 40 years a form of the cold virus mutates into something different and kills some people before dying out.

    My point is: SARS isn't the kind of thing that will destroy the world, or even come close. It also won't be as devistating as the Black Plague. The only way you can die from it is if you don't get treatment (just go to the doctor and get medicine like you normally do when you get a cold), or if you have a weak immune system.

    I Ain't Skeered... lol ... actually, I'm not. There are only about a billion things that a person could worry about dying from on a daily basis, if one were so inclined.

    Baaaah!!!

    Overhyped. The media is having a field day with this one. Based on stats so far, I'm more worried about falling pianos.
