Want swine flu? Come to England, where the number of cases is said to be ballooning. Yes, that wonderful piggy virus is spreading at lightening speed -- apparently, pigs can fly. One of the reasons the UK seems to be a virus hot-spot is the wonderful Heathrow Airport, the busiest airport in the world and a giant mixing pot for the world's infected.
I've never been that keen on germs and the like (who is?), but now I find myself suspecting every cough and snort beside me on the Tube as a carrier of swine flu. People of Britain, please - cover your mouth when you cough! As much as I like pigs, I have no desire to have their virus inside of me.
