Default Scientific Stupidity Knows No Bounds


This is enough to make the Pope cuss:

Security fears as flu virus that killed 50 million is recreated

Ian Sample, science correspondent

The Guardian


Scientists have recreated the 1918 Spanish flu virus, one of the deadliest ever to emerge, to the alarm of many researchers who fear it presents a serious security risk.

Undisclosed quantities of the virus are being held in a high-security government laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia, after a nine-year effort to rebuild the agent that swept the globe in record time and claimed the lives of an estimated 50 million people.

It always seemed to me that the best place to be, in case of all-out nuclear attack on the US, would be ground zero. That way there'd be no long, lingering death from radiation poisoning.

NOW THIS!!!!!! The CDC is practically in my back yard. Hey, I only meant "Noocolar" bombs, not Biological!! Can we talk about this?? :-?
