      Of course they learned a lesson! Only about a million people died in the US and the rich got over $1 trillion richer, so this time they’ll let 10 million die so the rich can get $10 trillion richer!

    But the dairy farmers have said they’re not milking sick cows! What else could they possibly do?

    We will know if we are genuinely in the darkest time line if we get another pandemic and Trump become president again. Because that was such a great combination last time /s

    I’m following this closely and posting updates as I have them in /c/h5n1_avianflu. I believe once this gets into pigs, it will mutate to be able to infect humans easier and possibly gain H2H. When that happens… not if… be prepared to wear a mask and social distance. People will overwhelm the hospitals and the mortality rate will be higher then we believe it to be. Protect yourselves and your loved ones.

    Turns out Covid was just round 1 of international pandemics from China.

    Edit: yes, technically it was round 4 (SARS, bird flu, swine flu, Covid, now Bird Flu: this time its personal)

    Someone had to find a flying monkey in China. What happened next wasn’t the immediate investigation of the species. It’s China so it probably got fried in street oil and bam new bird flu.
