This is the one in which I talk about the Swine Flu

Well, apparently Argentina has taken the Swine Flu worse than any other country outside of Mexico.

Not really sure what to say about this -- frankly, I assume that it's a case of negative variance, wherein Argentina got unlucky. Go read about Power Laws and this should make sense. Alot of people here are blaming the government, but I really don't see it.

But, as often happens in democracies, the governments are going crazy. All schools have been suspended in the last 2 weeks. Churches are mostly suspending their activities, all public (and in Argentina, the majority of private schools are public schools as far as I can tell), colleges and universities are closed. Hand sanitizer is everywhere, surgical masks occasionally in the street and always in the supermarket

I think I had swine flu. I didn't check or anything but all the symptoms matched up. Including the suckages.
