The World Is Coming To An End, Part 4,325,349

Looks like the dark horse candidate to end the world, swine flu, is going to do it. For all of you who voted for swine flu in my "How Is The World Going To End?" poll from a few months ago, congratulations, I guess.

All I know is that I was at the Mets game yesterday and couldn't even enjoy myself because I heard every single cough and sneeze in the place. Looking around, there were many people who had the glossed-over look that idiots often enjoy, that blasted look of ignorance. But they were happy and drunk and I thought, for a brief second that perhaps, they win afterall.

Anyway, the fear box will be all over this one for the next few weeks at least. This global financial meltdown/revolution is getting a bit played out.

UPDATE: Oh, and that plane escorted by a military jet over the Hudson? That was just a pre-planned flight... It tanked the futures though... that was Part 4,325,350.
