Crazy about the Swine Flu

Now that Taiwan is getting potential cases, people are going crazy over nothing. Students are wearing those masks (which don’t really filter anything because they aren’t sealed and not rated to block viruses). At a banquet, before entering, I had to get my temperature taken from my ear.

It can take two weeks for the flu to show up via a temperature check, and since I have a low body temperature, I doubt I would be flagged even if I did get the virus.

At this rate, I expect I will, as one of my students has gone to the USA on vacation to a place that has had an outbreak. I will be able to take comfort in the fact it seems to be a very mild flu.
