Adaptation Part B - Research The Spanish Flu


Spanish Flu symptoms (information from About Education

The victims of the 1918 Spanish flu suffered greatly. Within hours of feeling the first symptoms of extreme fatigue, fever, and headache, victims would start turning blue. Sometimes the blue colour became so pronounced that it was difficult to determine a patient's original skin colour. The patients would cough with such force that some even tore their abdominal muscles. Foamy blood exited from their mouths and noses. A few bled from their ears. Some vomited; others became incontinent. The Spanish flu struck so suddenly and severely that many of its victims died within hours of coming down with their first symptom. Some died a day or two after realizing they were sick.

With the Spanish flu being a air born virus the vehicle that would best fit it would be some sort of flying vehicle. The symptoms that stick out the most to me is the skin turning blue and the foamy blood exited from the mouth and nose and bleeding from the ears. With the Spanish flu spreading so fast it would make sense that this vehicle would be the fastest one or have some sort of speed boost, this speed boost could be portrayed in a style of the vehicle sneezing. The ability of this vehicle be the speed boost and a foamy blood spray that blinds the vehicle behind you.  



  2. Hi there - just a gentle prod from me re. completing the Internal Student Survey. Go here for the original post and a bit more info about the survey and why it's important to participate.

    They should have emailed your login details to your ucreative accounts, but if no email has arrived contact and request your login details from the powers-that-be. When you've completed the survey leave a 'done it' comment on the original post - this means I'll stop prodding you - gently or otherwise! ;) Many thanks!
