Sometimes you just can't believe that any of this is real even though you know it is real. Very real. This is of course the plot of an amazingly crappy 1950's horror movie where some prehistoric virus is 'awakened' and escapes ... sigh.
Daily life should not resemble a crappy 1950's horror movie... that's my theory. It just shouldn't. Meanwhile what do we read. They found four of these ancient viruses already and what do they want to do? That's right ... exactly the same stupid damn plot of the 1950's horror flick... they want to revive the virus!
We have met the abysmally moronic and... he was smarter than we were.
Feeling relaxed and comfortable with incipient calls for war, looming global warming and oceanic collapse, nuclear meltdowns ala Fukushima, drought that becomes world wide fires that burn permafrost and ...permafrost? Methane not so perma- permafrost? Nah ... freaking extinct viruses brought back to life just to see if we can do it thawing permafrost!
A lot has happened this last year. I am wondering what will happen next year. A single year never used to seem all that long but these days each one seems an eternity of bad news.
So we find prehistoric viruses that we may revive because why? Sigh.
These stupid movies scared the hell out of me as a kid... it is very disconcerting to think that they might turn out to be real now.
When they announce that they have discovered a prehistoric virus that turns people into zombies... damn it to hell I'm probably going to believe them.
Once! Just one F'N mention of a zombie virus and I'm outta here!
