After my vacation I thought it appropriate to make my returning topic "family friendly"

http://www.google.org/flutrends/

Google catalogs searches of flu symptoms in the US to track the disease. You can see that search activity is picking up on parts of the eastern seaboard.

heh..interesting
It's only a game, you don't need to be afaid of anyone, except for ONE person. Its not the teenager with a marker worth more than your car. Its not the SPPL player with about 35 BPS firing rate. Its the 40 year old guy lying in a corner, taking a nap before the game begins. His camo will probably be old, and he will most likely be toting a pump. He's been playing since before you were born, and if he mentions how much he didn't like when he had to play with oil based paintballs, make SURE he is on your team. This guy is a ghost.-Match99

Nice, I can't remember the last time I got the flu shot...or the flu. I am proud of my immune system.

Lucky! My nurse was like 60 years old :P

I don't think I've ever gotten the flu. Even so, the last 2 years my parents have "made" me get the flu shot. Heck, it's free to me, I'll get it.

I hate needles and my mom does too, so if I can I will avoid it. But it never even comes up anyway. I stay happy. (<-- famous last words)

Last time I got shots, there were ten. Ok ok, it was at the dentist when I got 4 molars extracted, but it still hurt for a while.

Haven't got a flu or pneumonia shot in oh 7 years. Every year or so I get sick for 1 or 2 days during the same time (late January) and that's it. Having a hearty immune system is pretty good.

If you're tracking Asian Bird Flu, would that be Google Fru?
