    SARS? What the fuck?

    Discussion started by oldenglish - Apr 24, 2003

    All over the news. However I heard a news clip from one modern country say that the only way this virus could have been born was from a labratory.
    So out of the hundreds of billions people in the world less then a thousandth of a tenth of a percent die and its a world wide crisis?
    Shit, I would be more afraid of walking alone at night in East Los Angeles saying "Comesta Compadre" in a heavy cracker accent than I would be chilling in China or Tdot.

    eeeesh. Leaders in power these days.

    Well I have no doubt AIDS is man made it deserves far more attention than SARS. Considering we have the medications and isnt somthing like 25% of parts of Africa is dying from it. Genocide Georgie, is that you in office?
    Oh but then we might have to go back to dealing with the fact the our goverment in its allmost entirety, the media, and the coroporations that control our lifes are hopelessly and endlessly corrupt and kill for profit and convienience.
    Sheeeeeeeeeeit. These motherfuckers are some bitches.

    no
    not like AIDS at all

    AIDS is an immunodeficiency virus..it attacks the immune system such that you may die from virtually anything...like pneumonia..if you contract it, odds are good that your body doesn't have a chance and you will never be cured

    AIDS has infected 1.2% of the world's population

    it is a pandemic


    SARS is a really really nasty flu
    if you contract it, odds are decent that your body will fight it off and you will be permanently cured, and thus immune from further infection

    it is a coronavirus, very similar to the common cold..handwashing is an effective preventetive measure

    i highly doubt that it was created in a lab.
    there is not a tremendous amount of understanding about the common cold (obviously, we havent cured it)..and even less about the construction and viability of such an artificial virus

    if it was created in a lab, they would have almost certainly made it a deadlier disease, and one that was easier to contract

    'creating viruses' is not as easy as one may think

    viruses are a strange type of organism, unlike all other life on earth that is understood

    they are symbiotes capable of mutation, and although they require a host to survive, reproduce and get passes on, they frequently 'take over' the host's functions

    we have the type of medications that stave off symptoms, not cure AIDS (i agree they should be distributed now)

    AIDS was not created in a lab

    you guys obviously have no idea what goes into genetic engineering

    there is simply no way such a virus could be 'constructed'

    and the virus' roots can be traced back

    it comes form an immunodeficiency virus that strikes simians ..because there is a tremendous amount of poaching in sub saharan africa, lots of people eat untreated gorilla meat..it is almost definitive that the virus is a mutated form of the monkey disease contracted by humans from eating bushmeat

    the AIDS virus has tremendous mutation capabilities, beyond anything that could possibly be formulated in a labratory..

    understand that it is a living organism
    science may be advanced
    but creating life is still a bit out of our reach

    frequent hand washing really decreases your chances of getting a cold or the flu

    really

    do it definitely before you eat at least

    I'm in downtown SARSville.
    There's no escaping it.
    It's all over the news because the WHO
    jumped into panic mode. Even the American
    Center for Disease Control said the the WHO
    acted way too quickly. Oh well...
    maybe the tourists will stay away my steps this year.

    I actually caught myself getting nervous cuz some asian dude was all sick and coughing last week, what a loser I am. But now Im sick, but I think my nephew gave me the flu. We all know this is another frantic sensational story to divert attention from whatever we're supposed to really be talking about.
