Apparently that sucktacular week or two last year when my entire family had swine flu has an upside to it: super awesome immunity, beyond what one normally gets from having the flu. thumbsup.gif

 

I'm not keen on the idea of a universal flu vaccine, but reading the linked article makes me glad that we skipped the vaccine last year and ended up getting the disease.

well, I'm glad that there was some good from that horrible flu.  Sucktacular pretty much sums it up.
