it's the new thing, and everyone is getting it. in ny, the flu taking the media by storm. it's the only thing i'm hearing about right now. I have noticed a flu outbreak in people around me. why is the flu shot being pumped so much right now. everything and everyone is telling me to get the flu shot. i don't want it, and i will not get it (i'm going to edit this when i get the flu). for some reason it scares the hell out of me. from my very, very basic knowledge of on anything science, i think i've heard that a virus will always adapt. the flu seems to mutate at a very high pace. i've heard the vaccine they're pumping out isn't even for the strain that people are getting now. is it like this everywhere? i'm getting that generic mutated/medical mishap movie/video game feeling from this scenario.
