It's weak if you ask me. The regular flu kills more people every year than this "special" kind, doesn't it? But that isn't as exciting.
Heart disease is the number one killer in the US, but let's forget about that because that is more predictable, and people choose to do the things they do that bring it upon themselves.
I hear about these things, and it's such a blah blah blah to me. Cheap talk. 1,000s of things are heard, and people drive themselves gaga trying to keep up with the next one. The 1,000s of things heads ARE "the next one." The intent IS to keep you on your toes.
Eat it up!

I like the idea behind this thread, but as stated earlier this seems to be more about the possibility of these things happen than some kind of prophecy. Here's aquestion to those looking into it as a prophetic docuent.
Is there anyway to link anything from this to past events and see if any of that actually came to be? I noticed the mention of H1N1, so it looks like some people have been doing this. But, I personally feel like there needs to be a correlation to an event that had larger reprocussions. For example, WTC bombings, economic collapse, past wars, etc.
If there is some way to dig up a connection to events that took place that seemed nefarious but at the same time seems like a random occurance, I feel like this document could actually hold up as a so-called "blut print" for things to come, without jumping to conclusions.
Purely hypothetical of course. This is a good start to a nice investigation, Good luck to anyone looking into this further.
