Meanwhile

While the world craps its collective diaper over the swine flu, we just thought we'd mention that the number of cases of hemorrhagic dengue fever in Mexico have, in the first four months of this year, surpassed the total for all of 2008. Given that the mild form of dengue goes by the nickname "break-bone fever," we'd like to put ourselves on the record as being officially scared shitless about this, even though the number of cases in Querétaro is currently zero.

Dude, I'd be slathering in Ben's 100 (100% DEET) every morning. The risk of DEET-related cancer is less scary than the Dengue Fever.

I'm drinking a lot of gin. It's a great source of quinine.

You're gonna be fine. You've been on a momentum-powered "quinine" binge for almost 10 years.
