How We Turned a Super-Deadly Flu into a Super-Duper-Deadly Flu for kicks
One Virus Dr. Mario Can't Kill.
Read Why Ron Fouchier Sucks.
There are dozens of articles over the possible publication of super-flu research. Many are terrified over the bio-terrorism possibilites, such as some James Bond villain requesting ransom for 50% of the World's life.
Yes, a virus that could kill half of the world.
Netherlands - Fouchier recently modified the H1N1 virus - the Avian Bird Flu that was supposed to kill us all - and took a super-lethal virus and made it more contagious.
And our worries rested aside until he tried to publish the recipe. Yup, we waited that long. Maybe someone at the beginning of this should have cocked their head and said, "Emm. Maybe this isn't such a good idea."
Why the hell would anyone do this? I thought medicine attempted to work the other way - You know, the way that helps human beings. But every day I grow a little more wrong.
This is worse than Anthrax.
Seriously, let's stop doing this. How about scientists and doctors go back to helping cure things, rather than figuring out if they can make a virus which could possibly wipe out our species. That would be cool, right, killing ourselves? Ugh.
Thanks for reading. If you see Fouchier on the street, give him the bird (no pun intended) and maybe a kick to the groin.
Fear, focus, and the future. C.M. Humphries talks about writing, horror, and whatever.
