Swine fly they called it, why not pig flu?
After all, people use the word "swine" more to describe someone's character flaw rather than to refer to the animal itself.
In my opinion, media went for it, so people would not instantly become pork produce haters.
And "swine" sounds ugly, fit for a germ causing pandemic. Media pandemic that is.
I remember reading somewhere that more people died from lighting strikes in one year than from both bird flu and swine flu combined.
But it sure makes billions for people selling hygiene products, flu vaccines and snake oil.
And freaked out people burning their money on these sure boost the economy.
So it is all good.
But fuck it, who cares.
On the other front, I am still tired as a dog, and in an artistic slump to boot.
Trying to draw something nice has become a chore.
I blame it to the large amounts of dead braincells finally reaching a critical mass after 15 years of sleep deprivation.
I can finally enjoy starring at one spot for 15 minutes and drooling with joy.
And here's some art.
Not much and not very good.
Let's all hope it gets better.
Cheers to you all,
