Don't worry we have the Black Eyed Children.

Black-eyed children (or black-eyed kids) are paranormal creatures that resemble children, with pale skin and black eyes, who are usually seen hitchhiking/panhandling, or are encountered on doorsteps of residential homes by the occupants.

Beware of the children cos' they're going to get you yeah.

Actually, I do. It was horrible. The government campaign on this one was a model of non-judgemental public health campaigning and I fully support it. If only more government initiatives could be run this way the world would be a better place.

Non-judgemental? As I remember it we were all going to die if we had had sex since VE Day. And all to spare the blushes of homosexuals and drug users.

Yes, non—judgemental. The message was don’t have unprotected sex with a stranger or you might get HIV. It said nothing about whether or not you should have sex in the first place or about who you had sex with.

The UK was a much better place when tens of thousands of people were getting mad with it on E's every weekend.

The youth of today need to get out more often instead of obsessing about shite on Twatter and Instagram

Agreed. The youth of today are a pathetic shower of shite fed a diet of social media, smart phones & shit food.

Mad fer it.

'Second Hand Smoke'. If it was as bad as was made out, most of Britain's population would be dead now from lung cancer.

'Alcopops'. Supposedly all kids were going to be off their faces on booze that tasted like orangeade, never seemed to happen though.

'Millenium bug/Y2K'. Never happened.

'Hard Brexit' (Oh wait, that hasn't not happened yet).

This is an interesting one. I've been on a few Brexit threads on Mumsnet and the Y2K never happened theory gets debunked by remoaners every time as they remember how hard IT departments worked to sort it out so it wouldn't happen. I know the company I was working for had such a project but I don't know what they did apart from claim vast quantities of overtime. So IT bods on here - was there a huge amount of work to prevent the world stopping or was it all just a cunning ploy to enrich a lot of contractors?

Which are the exact disease vectors for AIDS, anal sex with a drug injector being the acme.

But no, we are all at risk...

To be fair at the height of the AIDS panic, it was commonly quoted in the MSM that AIDS was going to spread rapidly from gays to straights via bisexuals, which was why everyone had to be careful and it shouldn't be thought of as a 'gay plague'. 

It didn't happen in large numbers though mainly because the sexual contact required to spread AIDS as I understand it is huge amounts of bumming.

I don't think people in the mainstream heterosexual world realised the scale of what was going on in the 'bath houses' in the 70s and 80s to enable the spread of AIDS. They thought it was just picked up casually like the clap.

Bird flu and assuming it's not just illnesses.

1984, 2000, 2012 - probably 2020 and 2030.

With bird flu there was the associated panic of a likely shortage of vaccines.  The pharmas likely made a pandemic packet.

The threat still lurks probably to be regularly resurrected whenever pharma profits dip.

The risk of transmission by different activities did not become understood until much later than that and, in any case, low risk is not the same as no risk. I knew two people who died in the original AIDS epidemic, one of them was a gay man who most likely caught it from unprotected anal sex and the other was a  woman who married a South African man and caught it from, I assume, vaginal sex (she didn't seem like the type to be taking up the arse).

I was engaged in a project around 1995 in anticipation of what would be the millenium bug, although nobody referred to it in those terms at the time. It was only in retrospect that I realised that was what we had been doing. So I guess more switched on places had it sorted well in advance.

Mad cow disease. We were all going to die if we had ever consumed a burger from a dodgy burger van. Less than 200 Brits have ever died from CJD.

Mind you, it did result in the end of the practice of grinding up farm animals, and then feeding them to other animals.

Do you remember when John Gummer fed his daughter a burger live on TV?

      The concerted effort to keep the population in fear continues (Elephant disease, New Flu..... and now the bubonic plague ....ffs....!)......
       
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-53303457
      Authorities in China have stepped up precautions after a city in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region confirmed one case of bubonic plague.
      According to state reports, the Bayannur patient - a herdsman - is in quarantine and in a stable condition.
      Officials issued a Level 3 warning, the second-lowest in a four-tier system.
      The bubonic plague, caused by bacterial infection, can be deadly, but can be treated with commonly available antibiotics. 
      The new case was first reported as suspected bubonic plague on Saturday at a hospital in Urad Middle Banner, in Bayannur city. 
      It is not yet clear how or why the patient might have become infected. 
      The level 3 alert forbids the hunting and eating of animals that could carry plague and calls on the public to report suspected cases.
      Fatal but treatable 
      Cases of bubonic plague are periodically reported around the world. 
      Madagascar saw more than 300 cases during an outbreak in 2017.
      In May last year, two people in the country of Mongolia died from the plague, which they contracted after eating the raw meat of a marmot - a type of rodent.
      A World Health Organization official in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, had told the BBC that raw marmot meat and kidney was thought to be a folk remedy for good health. 
      Black Death 'spread by humans not rats' Why hasn't the US eradicated the plague? The rodent is a known carrier of the plague bacteria, and is commonly associated with plague cases in the country. Hunting marmots is illegal.
      The bubonic plague is characterised by swollen lymph nodes. It can be hard to identify in its early stages because symptoms, which usually develop after three to seven days, are flu-like.
      But it's unlikely the bubonic plague - infamously known as the Black Death - will lead to an epidemic. 
      "Unlike in the 14th Century, we now have an understanding of how this disease is transmitted," Dr Shanti Kappagoda, an infectious diseases doctor at Stanford Health Care, told news site Heathline. 
      "We know how to prevent it. We are also able to treat patients who are infected with effective antibiotics."
      The Black Death caused about 50 million deaths across Africa, Asia and Europe in the 14th Century.
      Its last terrifying outbreak in London was the Great Plague of 1665, which killed about a fifth of the city's inhabitants. In the 19th Century there was a plague outbreak in China and India, which killed more than 12 million.

      Let's have a little fun. Post a link to your favourite Brexit scare story and then the best ones will be put to a poll to see which is the best. The only rule is they must appear on a respectable/MSM/mainstream website.
