Ok this is a rant. Im fuming right now. So mad in fact I cant even think straight.
So some background. Mid last year friends of ours recommended a mechanic to us, as he was just starting out, and needed customers. I have taken 4 different cars to him spending a combined amount of around $5k. Not a bad customer hey. Well I was invited for drinks each Friday at the end of the day, and to help clean up. You know move cars around tidy up etc.
Well all was fine, in fact before the long weekend Greg had come over to see my partner and myself at Bunnings in the car park all friendly etc. I saw him this Monday just been to replace the alternator ribbed belt, he was rather cool but I was unwell so decided to let it slide and catch up for a cold can of coke on Thursday.

Well that really depends on who you are and where in the world you live. But to the WHO its a pandemic.
A world wide pandemic, could see death on a scale not equaled in human history. There are several virus mutations that could go airborne that would cause carnage on that sort of scale. Bird flu, and its many variations could prove to be fatal and easily transported. Reality is our health system simply would collapse under the strain of a pandemic and people will die, not just in 5 and 10's but in the millions. The spanish flu is a classic example of the death one could cause.
The one that has me losing sleep would be a version of ebola. That is one nasty piece of work with a deadly mortality rate.
So how do we protect ourselves ? The answer is we cant and we don't. Anything that is airborne has the potential to move rapidly through populations, normally by the time its discovered many are already infected. So what do we do, keep living every day and planing for our …
