I might have a touch of the flu

Gonna score me some natural antibodies.

Livelong resistance here I come.

Grandson rapid tested positive for a flu last weekend. His kindergarten teacher is out sick this week.

Yesterday I started feeling bad, so maybe I caught the flu.

I doubt this is going to be very rough as I had the flu in the 1990s.

As long as the strains of flu are genetically similar, naturally occurring antibodies will recognize the strain and attack it.

That is one reason why swine flu killed less Americans then it did Mexicans.

In the 1970s there was a flu outbreak, some baby boomers seemed resistant to the outbreak. Its been speculated that the people who were resistant caught a similar strain of flu when they were children.

People who caught the Russian flu in the late 1970s show resistant to the new strain of swine flu.

My goal in life is to build up natural antibodies that will hopefully carry into my old age.

When I get to be 70 years old, get my flu shot, and then guess what, the scientist guessed wrong on which strand of flu was going around. Then I am left with little or not protection against the new strain of flu.

The Natural State Of Mankind

The way people live in cities, all bunched up together like chickens in a coop is not the natural state of mankind.

For tens of thousands of years mankind lived in small nomadic groups. They had land to farm, land to roam, river and streams to fish from, land to hunt on and land to migrate on. Groups traded between each other, and were pretty much self sufficient.

Today, we live in cities that group people together like livestock.

What happens when you put too many chickens in a coop? They start pecking at each other. Let the chickens out in the yard, or free range, and they are fine.

Humans are natural born predators; we fish, we hunt and we eat. Living in cities with our artificial grocery stores suppresses those natural predator feelings.

Like chickens going to a feeder, or hogs going to a feed trough, so people go to the local grocery store or fast food place and get their food.
