Hmmmmm...

Original headline:

WHO worryies that evolution of bird flu virus could start human flu pandemic. America tells them not to worry, there's no such thing as evolution

Meh. At least I got credit for it. I'm curious as to why mods/admins edit the headlines though. Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of this crazy thing called FARK?

We have always been at war with Eurasia, dogfather_jr. What exactly are you suggesting?

Great headline!
 
2005-01-20 08:08:40 AM

/sars never happened......
//actually it did but Kudos to all the health workers who did a fine job at containing it.

And not to worry. The private sector and capitalism will develop a flu vaccine in plenty of time to prevent pandemic death.

I think the profit margin is higher for body bags.

It's a good thing I live in Georgia. With those stickers, the flu will never know.

I'm safe.

I think you meant to say that "Theoretically, the only thing that seems to be doing much evolving these days is stupidity."

I hope I'm not entering into bannination territory here, but is it "Bring Your Kid to Work Day" for the Fark mods?

"America tells them not to worry, evolution is just a theory"

What an ignorant statement.
 
2005-01-20 11:01:46 AM
Microevolution (as in this virus) = fact
Macroevolution (dinosaur into bird) = hypothesis

/just sayin!
 
2005-01-20 11:01:54 AM
EXCELLENT headline
 
2005-01-20 11:02:20 AM

"The situation "may resemble that leading to the 1918 pandemic," which killed more than 40 million people, it said in its latest report on preparedness for an influenza pandemic."


Which is strangely enough, the same year the Red Sox last won the World Series. I guess we lucked out, since the only thing to happen this time when the Red Sox one is that only some Yankees choked ...

 
2005-01-20 11:02:27 AM
It probably came out of the other thread about people complaining about the 'todays' blah blah headlines.

/it's funny seeing people complain
 
2005-01-20 11:03:09 AM
It's only fear-mongering until someone catches an epidemic.
 
2005-01-20 11:03:34 AM
The edited headline is better than the original.

*chuckles*

Great headline!

Antibiotic resistance is the only thing I fear more than the impending oil shortage. When you're all dead, don't come crying to me!
 
2005-01-20 11:06:15 AM
heh, the who?

 
2005-01-20 11:06:52 AM
Isn't WHO the organization that sent its scientist to China to check out a little thingy called SARS, then fly the scientist out through Hong Kong, thereby changing SARS from a regional problem into a global catastrophe?

/brilliant
 
2005-01-20 11:07:06 AM
People, don't live with your farking animals. It won't be too long before Captain Trips comes a knockin'.

It's called human population control. Now if they would only come out with a flu which killed deer and Canadian Geese.

Antibiotics are for bacterial infections, not viral - so we're all screwed

I for one welcome or new Bird flu virus overlords!
 
2005-01-20 11:09:58 AM
People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my evolution)
Just because we can walk around (Talkin' 'bout my evolution)
Opposable thumbs are good to hold (Talkin' 'bout my evolution)
I hope I evolve before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my evolution)

What an ignorant statement.

No no, haven't you heard? Anything that's stupid, no matter the tiny minority advocating it, is somehow representative of America.
 
2005-01-20 11:11:06 AM
Great headline! Bravo, submitter.

/Gravity is just a theory...

desease and natural disaster is mother natures way of keeping the population down and making sure the strongest survive
 
2005-01-20 11:12:33 AM
sexfuneral,

When the Bird flu and SARS kills most of the population of Asia, then we will not have to worry about China's exponentially increasing demand for Oil. Therefore there will be more oil for the rest of us!!!

/These things have a way of working out naturally!!

Human pandemics are the first part of the subversive liberal agenda.

With the flu pendemic on the way, I can stop worrying about overpopulation.

Since when was SARS a global catastrophe? Or even a regional problem compared to, say, malaria?
 
2005-01-20 11:13:44 AM
Wow, Brockway, that undiscovered genius biologist, has solved the mystery of how Sars was transmitted. It was those darn scientists- it had nothing to do with the million + other international travellers.
 
2005-01-20 11:13:58 AM
to the best of my knowledge viruses don't evolve, they mutate
 
2005-01-20 11:14:01 AM
dogfather_jr's original headline was so much better. I hate all the stupid "today's blah brought to you by blah" almost as much as I hate "your dog wants blah" headlines.
 
2005-01-20 11:14:19 AM
