The Google logo of today is funny: http://www.google.com.mx/logos/dayofthedead09.gif In the KOL game there is a celebration called "El dia de los muertos borrachos" based on the same festivity, although it happens several times a year so it rarely coincides with the real one. I've got the classical flu (again), I wish it was the swine flu instead so I could feel a little closer to death =)

They do, it surprised me as well. Only http://www.google.com.mx shows it.

@BorgClown: I had swine 'flu 2-3 weeks ago. Or at least that's what a doctor friend said when I told her my symptoms last weekend - and the NHS web site agreed and gave me permission to have some Tamiflu. You don't need any respiratory symptoms to be diagnosed with it, and many are diagnosed over the telephone - in many cases, I'd guess incorrectly.

Influenza is a mostly benign disease, even swine flu. Here the advice is asking for Tamiflu only if you have high fever, or if you are in a high-risk group (too young, too old or overweight). Those can confidently be diagnosed by telephone.
