What is the difference between having a flu and having pneumonia? Oh also... If you dunk your head in cold water and went outside during a chilly day, you could catch a cold, maybe the flu, maybe even pneumonia? Could someone please clerify the difference in how each are caught?

My understanding is that flu is a virus characterized by fever, chills, and bodily aches. Their are various strains of the virus that causes it, as the Avian flu or the Asian flu. Pneumonia involves infections and fluids in the lungs along with usually low grade fever. It can result from either a virus or bacteria, the latter probably easier to treat with antibiotics. Either can be deadly, including flu.
