    So this is how it ends!

    "China confirms new SARS-like virus HAS spread between humans as 14 medics catch the killer infection after treating patients"

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/a...ViNMMO9tc0IoBQ

    Now if China has admitted this much we have to times it by 100 at least.

      Everyone is always bitching about AGW.

      A nice, really virulent, air borne, quick acting, fatal plague without medical remedy would probably wipe out a third of the world's population.

      Thanos for the win, with no infinity gauntlet needed.

      And, that should provide some solution to the concerns of the AGW crowd regarding so many humans breathing out CO2, and driving around, burning so much coal, and using electricity.

        Headline is extremely misleading. There've been only a few deaths associated with this outbreak, although that could change.

        The human to human transmission is significant though. Other than that, it’s just another flu strain out of East Asia. Worrisome for the elderly, the young and the immunocompromised, not so much for healthy people.

        Edit, I understand that a coronavirus is technically not influenza.

                Can't tell if sarcasm or not, however I am going to assume this just proves that you only have empathy for those you know.

                      OK, that is one hell of a literary follow up.

                      Oh and BAN FOR RACISM!

                          There's another Stephen King's The Stand joke somewhere...around...here. Somewhere near the front...
                          '�I am no advocate of passivity,� Coffin Mott said in an 1860 speech. �Quakerism, as I understand it, does not mean quietism. The early Friends were agitators; disturbers of the peace; and were more obnoxious in their day to charges, which are now so freely made, than we are.�'

                            I have a hard time riffing Yeats. Dude was as serious as a viral outbreak.


                            Oh, wait...


                            (edit) Cough softly, because you cough on my sleeves?
                            Cough softly, because you cough, and I sneeze?

                            Yeah, I'm going with the latter. The kleenex does not hold.

                              That animated gif reminds me of the spread of SQL Slammer.

                              Wait a minute.

                              That's because it is the spread of SQL Slammer.
