Im a bit younger, but I still miss good concerts that won't cost you an arm and a leg.... 

Used to be you could go see a concert for 20 and get on the floor ....  try doing that today for less than a couple franklins plus the 15 dollar beers.

I saw steve miller for 10 and we brought a coolor of liquor laden fruit and it was awesome!

The closest to that non ripped off feeling was seeing Iron Maiden last August in Chicago, a pavillion ticket with the free parking for 52 bucks!  And boy can they play!  Outstanding show!

It is the same, but through millenia we have acquired immunities to various flu types...  this is a new mutated form of a bird flu that can now be transmitted to humans.   just like swine flu or bird flu.... over a hundred years ago it was the "Spanish Flu"   but its still all a virus that we don't have immunity or medicine to eradicate it with.

And if the news reported statistics on those deaths you will find it was predominately old people and immune compromised.  

Also it doesn't correlate unreported but still sick people who don't seek treatement for the flu which is viral and the hospital can't do anything for you because there isn't a vaccine so if you are in the high risk group stay home!!!

If you look at all flu related deaths and death rates in the old and immune compromised groups you will see higher percentages their as well!   

You can try to skew numbers to support any argument, but the bottom line whether the flu is the flue by any name is still the flu and the ways to not get the flu are still the same, and over the last 10,000 years of human existence we gain immunity by surviving the flu.

Before Coronavirus came around you STILL had to take extra care not to spread germs to compromised people .... nothing has changed...   the difference is we as a society are just shutting it all down.   When you look at other avian, swine etc  flus that have come and gone this is a less severe type of flu in terms of infection rates and survivability etc..  

Media is way overbloowing this, and with the market freaking out it all exacerbates rational thinking.  People are hoarding water, TP etc... and its just crazy and not rationale thinking.

That said I hope for nothing but the best for your elderly kin!!

I appreciate that, and my viewpoint is from talking to actual pulmonologists, and this is their actual viewpoint on the matter.

We are literally as a populous overreacting to the flu season.  Yes Elderly and those with compromised immune systems must take special precaution... and that hasn't and won't change from flue to flu season to season.

But that doesn't mean we just shut it down as a society.

I loved how he smacks that booty then runs back several steps to either act like he didn't do it...  what a clown...

The part I don't like is the recruit speaking publicly about something like that.  I get that fellow recruits talk about that stuff and they should, but I liken this to Douchebags like Kalis running their mouth when they haven't done anything yet. 

Let Michigan do all the talking off the field, and the Bucks take care of the talking on the field!
