A mate of mine has just bought some Tamiflu, enough for him and his missus should Bird Flu get over here (seems likely).

Paranoid, or good sense? He reckons the government stockpile will be for essential services only. To get 10 capsules is about £45, and should the shit hit the fan, you won't be able to get it for love nor money.

I have visions of him nailing boards to the windows, and fighting off flu-infected zombies with a gun.

does he also have a fall-out shelter and two years worth of canned goods squirreled away?

Its pointless buying vaccines now from what I gather from my parents. Any human-human strain that emerges will likley be different to the current chicken-human and chicken-chicken strains.
Thus any vaccine you buy now will likley not elicit an immune response to whatever new virus thats around.
However, I guess it could also be a similar strain and thus worth buying stuff for :p

Did he fiddle around with the mechanism so that he can fire both on full automatic? Hehe.

It's not a vaccine. It's an anti-viral medication which should reduce the risk of passing the virus on and will most certainly reduce the symptoms experienced by those affected.

Mutation or not tamiflu will have an affect on the user.

would he also prefer to move to a remote region of america to live in harmony with nature (and other survivialists)? refusing to pay taxes and acknowlege the justice system? secretly thinking that the world would be better without humans?

better call John Clark matey!

where is he getting these capsules, because from what i can see it is prescription only? or has he actually had it prescribed?

Search for tamiflu in the search box, and up it comes. He got some powder, and 2 boxes of capsules, enough he reckons for the two of them should people in his area get infected. Its not a cure, but it does reduce the chances of death somewhat!

Apparently it comes from Sweden, so they must have a license to get them through customs.

The western media is responsible for more extreme cases of paranoia than cannabis, ecstasy and cocaine combined. Fact.

However if that website sells ritolin or valium I would be extremely interested hehehe.
