Aloha – Usually I limit my goreification posts to one a week, but I couldn’t resist the story that has popped up a couple of times about the hibernating superviruses that are coming out of the melting wastelands of Siberia. Viruses by modern definition are very small, but these monsters are the dinosaurs in size of the viral kingdom, with hundreds of genes. Think about all the great end of the world opportunities this can provide for scientists and pseudo-scientists. The goreites should be delighted with new opportunities to try to scare the unwary. There fear of pandemics is already gaining steam.
