7. Anyone remember the "swine flu" scare... ?
... The only thing stopping the widespread use of the swine flu vaccine was human trials... in 1976, the U.S. Army in Fort Ord California was the human trial...

I was given a dose of the vaccine, and later in the evening my body temp went to 105 degrees...

Thought I was a goner for sure, but it didn't fry my brain enough to make me register Republican.

I joke about it now, but it was serious business then. I don't know if the vaccine was ever used, but I would not have given to anyone after what I went through.
