    I've read articles on how bad the factory farms in NC are. God only knows how bad the ones they operate in Mexico are.
  2. I actually found the factory farms on Google maps down there in Mexico.

    Piss and shit pools the size of 3 football fields.

  3. Can you post the link to the google satellite image?

  5. A TRIPLE strain virus......from piggie to piggie $hit to flies to humans......LOL!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    Nice story drop there....makes all the sense in the world. :eek:

  6. What most people don't realize is that there has to be hog connection in order for influenza (that originates in birds) to make the jump to be able to infect humans.

    Because humans are so close to pigs genetically speaking, the virus can make the leap only by jumping from birds (usually ducks) to swine, and then to humans from swine.

    It's been this way for as long as vaccines were attempted - the epidemiologists always travel to Asia, and usually mainland China, to test the poultry population for strains of influenza, so as to be able to create an egg-based culture for a human influenza vaccine for that season.
  7. Well said...for those of you who want ACTUAL information, rather than just "factory hog farms are the devil and will wipe us out" Bull Sh** then check out Friday's Daily Livestock Report. You idiots trying to run down the good name of US agriculture ought to be ashamed of yourselves...but this is ET, so you won't be, you'll just pile on me!

  8. I forgot to add that the reason that influenza strains typically originate in Asia, and either Taiwan, Hong Kong, or more likely, mainland China, is that it is the place on earth that has the closest and highest density population of ducks and pigs living together, along with humans.

    This is because of the villages.

    So, the influenza virus typically originates in smaller villages that contain ducks, hogs and humans, living in close proximity with each other.

    The ducks infect the pigs, the virus modifies its genetic 'code,' and it makes the species jump from the hog to the human; something it found much, much more difficult to do when it primarily affected the duck.

    Avian influenzas main barrier to infecting humans en masse is the inability to sustain human to human genetic transmission ability.
  9. this is bad, very bad, a pandemic of worldly proportions
