been thinking about winter in this sense.
When the restaurants, bars, grocery store humidity levels are up a bit due to customers coming in from the rain/snow.
The heaters are on... People are sniffling... Gonna be gross.

No. Sorry subby, that is beyond stupid. Let me explain why the spanish flu was as bad as it was


Information was being supressed
Idiots were spreading horrible advice
The state of medicine was terrible
No one knew how it spread
No one had immunity
No one had antibiotics to deal with secondary infections
There was no global food market, meaning malnutrition was all over
It caused the immune system to overreact which helped kill people
It mutated from a normal flu into a holy fark you are dead in a day flu after the first wave of infection passed


Basically, read actual history instead of some morons attempt at headline grabbing

You will be better off doing so

Environmental conditions may have played a role?
Glad you poo pooed the entire article for me. Feel much better now.

Is it duck season?

"Mallard ducks likely stayed put in western Europe in the autumns of 1917 and 1918 because of the bad weather, rather than migrating northeast to Russia as they normally do, according to the new study. This kept them close to military and civilian populations and may have allowed the birds to transfer a particularly virulent strain of H1N1 influenza to humans through bodies of water. "
