Bird flu poll

**helen****helen** Mod malarkistPosts: 9,235 Listening Ear
We'd like to run a bird flu poll on the home page tomorrow since it's been high on the agenda this week - but rather than just the whole are you worried/paranoid about bird flu? I was wondering whether or not there is a more interesting angle?

What do you guys reckon - is there anything you'd like to ask people?

    Find Carlos Mencia's skit on bird flu for a few ideas. Entertaining and very informative :thumb:

    What do you do when you find a dead bird?
    No, don't lick it, give it to the homeless man.

    What is H5N1:

    1. A Japanese car
    2. R2D2's friend in Star Wars
    3. A virus strain

    What is more likely:

    1. Being hit by an asteroid
    2. Catching bird flu
    3. Winning the lottery

    Run a poll on what the post-apocalyptic future is going to be like once Bird Flu has ravaged the world's population into the dust.

    1) Mad Max 2 - the survivors dress up in leather and squabble over petrol in the desert.
    2) Terminator 2 - the flu causes IBMs and machines to run riot.
    3) Cyborg - the flu makes Van Damme do exactly what he does in every single film he's in i.e. talk with broken speech, do flying kicks and show his arse at least once, guaranteed.
    4) The flu will do nothing much because it's all completely over-hyped by the media. Sort of like the Millennium Bug.

    What is the Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow?

    A. What do you mean, an African or European Swallow?
    B. I seek the Grail.
    C. Zero. It's dead.

    I think it's funny how people seem to think it's overhyped by the media, when in fact it is not. The top virologists in the country are all very worried about bird flu.

    Do you realise how unexciting the world of virology is? :p

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Are you worried about bird flu?

    A. A bird flew?
    B. I have my air tight bunker ready.
    C Bring out yer dead!

    we had the big flu of 1918 ...just as the first world war finnished ...at the time themost devastating death toll ever ...then the flu killed more than the war.
    just near me is a beautiful marble church builtin memory of the millions who were killed by it.

    it will happen ...and we aren't in a position with all our wizardry to do very much about it.
    it will devastate economies and peoples.
