Scientists have discovered that the swine flu strain has actually been brewing in pigs for a number of years before its epic debut.

‘Using computational methods, developed over the last ten years at Oxford, we were able to reconstruct the origins and timescale of this new pandemic,’ said Dr Oliver Pybus of Oxford University’s Department of Zoology, an author of the paper. ‘Our results show that this strain has been circulating among pigs, possibly among multiple continents, for many years prior to its  transmission to humans.’

I hate things that remain dormant, especially fatal dieseases. What a cruel, cruel tease. Swine flu, if you were a dude, I’d give you a swift kick to the nuts. And no, I wouldn’t feel bad about it.
