I think I'd go bush, preferably somewhere I can trout fish. I'd fill my backpack with woollen things and enough greenery to kill a brown dog. Maybe somewhere up in the headwaters of the Eucumbene? There's some good bouldering up there too. But somewhere at altitude as you've got to be upstream of every thing.

A lot of people don't realise that there are sewage treatment plants upstream of virtually every river in Sydney. If the vegan-zombie flu gets into the water, stay out of the Nepean...

I could. No offense to Malcom, but I just hate soloers so much.

The zombies in "I am Legend" were really good climbers who could pull off massive dynos at will. You
wouldn't be safe from them on Ozy.

The only logical thing to do is to embrace zombiedom, and become one with the undead then go climbing.
You'ld probably want to stay away from granite though.

Now here's another point, if you become a zombie from a virus, does that mean that you don't become
skeleton once all your flesh has rotted away? Because I recall seeing a photo of a skeleton soloing
Seperate Reality. I recon you would have pretty good power to weight ratio if you were a skeleton, but as
there would be no muscle tissue for the t-virus (or p-virus as the case may be) to reanimate, you'ld need
to seek the intervention of some voodoo majic at some point.

What I am doing in this pandemic is supporting the Australia pig industry. The pig is a wonderous creature. It gives us pork (BBQ, roast, fried, baked), ham, bacon salami, crackling, trotters. If it produced beer there would be no need for any other life on earth.

Everyone have a bacon sanwich for breakie, a pork roll for morning tea a ham sandwich for lunch and a roast for dinner.

If swine flu wipes out humanity so be it. Life without bacon is death.

A Chinese friend of mine often buys pigs heads at the Central Market. She considers the snout, ears,
tongue, brain, etc. to be a great treat.

I think you crumb them and deep fry them. Makes me twitch a little thinking about it really.

You forgot Chorizo, one of my favourite parts of the pig. Had a ham sandwich for lunch.

Yum, deep fried battered pigs brains.

Evan the chorizo and haloumi fry up for breakie is a personal favourite.

Remember swine flu is a person to person thing. Kill a person, eat a pig.

Soon, your love of the pig may not have to stop at eating them widewetandslippery. Fairly good progress
is being made in preparing pig organs for transplantation into humans including heart, lung and islets of
Langerhans (for diabetics).

Not "is" the correct word is "was"!!
Honestly i don't think it would ever have been allowed, the risk of mutated viruses was thought to be too high. Especially after this outbreak i'd put money on it never happening.
There is a better chance in stem cell research by growing organs or injecting the cells to repair damage.

Are you sure about that sabu? Whats wrong with mutating into part pig? You maybe to young but there used to be a fine documentary on the ABC at 5pm weekdays called Monkey that explored the life and adventures of Pigsy.

Its to do with the interaction between the genes of the different species which has the
potential to produce weird (retro?) viruses. I don't know a lot about it though, just recall
the implications from an ethics subject i slept through.
