Swine Flu Road Trip! Vegas Anyone?

Image Via best-horror-movies.com

Of all the things I’m scared of a pandemic flu isn’t one of them (weird right?). I am 400% certain that it wouldn’t affect me and I’d be one of the “chosen few.” It’s like when you want to know who you were in a past life and you think “maybe I was royalty!” when probably you were an illiterate peasant and died of the plague.

When imagining what would happen if there actually was a worldwide outbreak of something I always imagine myself immune. I’m alone in the city shuffling through debris trying to make my way west (indeed to Las Vegas via Denver)! I’m in an abandoned mansion in England taking care of orphaned children (clearly, this is from 28 Days Later, also, I have no idea how I would get to England). I’m cursing myself for not paying more attention in AP Chemistry! I have no idea what the “grid” is or how to turn it back on! I spot in the distance a former lover and we rejoice that we’re still alive (sorry Juan)! I’m struggling to write down the history of the world so that someday when life blooms again they will know what happened! They will know HOW WE LIVED! This is our INDEPENDENCE DAY! Ummm or something along those lines.

Anyway! Anyone else? Where do you see yourself in a major disaster? Clearly not dying! You’re Mad Max aren’t you? You’re definitely not Water World guy.

    Enter: The Warriors. I’m pretty sure my immune system was accidentally placed in my body because it’s pretty sweet. I don’t really get sick and I feel like I would surpass a nearly apocalyptic outbreak (like that scary, yet mildly bad Hoffman, Freeman movie). In that case I would definitely relish in the abundance of man’s materialism, feast on infected cheeseburgers and finally complete my dream of speeding along beautiful cliff side highways in Italian sports cars kindly provided by the late citizens of Earth. Other than that, I would formulate my own gang of superior warriors of the aftermath to gain control before other savages do.

    I LOVE THE STAND!

    Don’t worry though Klein, I think 2012 is more of a concern than the pig flu.

    Well I guess I’m dead, but if in this post-apocalyptic future it was me who had survived I would I would definitely become a loner – a rebel. Partially infected by the virus I would not be quite human or swine. Left as a leper to tour the countryside alone by foot. Eventually I would become a ninja master after finding a self-powered iPhone with tutorials on ninjadom. Then decades later I would pay divine retribution on all those who had turned their back on me.
