Dude.

Dude.

For the last eight and a half hours I've been writing a paper on Japanese biological warfare in World War II and the epidemiology of the infectious diseases used in said warfare. I've been detailing field testing, civilian casualties, biological agents, methods of infection... pretty much just death, death death. It's been amazing.

I mean. I mean, have you ever, like, just sat down and looked through an epidemiology book? Or a book on bioterrorism? It's some heavy shit, man. Pictures of dead babies and fatality rates and you know, it wouldn't be that hard to launch a full scale biological attack against a country or region. It's easy shit. I mean, these microbes go EVERYWHERE. You can put em in the fuckin' air. You can infect rats and dogs and birds with plague fleas. You can just pour shit into the water. If you wanna get creative, you can infect the food. Feed contaminated candy to children. It's so EASY. So easy that it's actually really, really terrifying. I think I'm so overwhelmed by the sheer power of biological warfare that I'm actually a little giddy.

It's an odd feeling.

Anyway. I'm just now getting to my section on the bubonic plague and I had to write this journal to take a small break so I could gear myself up for this shit (the plague will be my longest epidemiology section). Just read a bit about the plague. Just for fun. Read about pandemics and plague fleas and fatality rates. It'll either scare the shit out of you or make you feel slightly in awe of such a tiny, perfect killing machine.

It's mostly the latter for me.

I'm a cruel bitch. XD

(But I :heart: Ishii Shiro!)

ALSO.

WTF.

WE'RE FUCKED. Forget the regular zombies--we've got fucking zombie PIGS on the loose! THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. All my carefully laid plans...ruined! All my "in case of zombies, use appropriate exits" maps graffitied on the walls of schools and stores around the state...useless!

We've got to get out. That's the only way. Pack your things. I'll grab the foodstuffs and first aid shit, you grab the guns...you DID hide them where I told you to, right??

Yeah, It's kinda scary how easy it could be to destroy parts of the country just with illness. Turns out, the government apparently purposely released the bubonic plague into the water/sewer system or something. Killed a few people. Just shows that our gov't really loves us... right?

When was that? I feel like I need a source for that information. XD

I mean, it happens. Obviously, cause... y'know, Japan and stuff.

Well, there was Project SHAD/112, but that was on a fairly small scale.

Dunno, early 1900's if I remember correctly. Probably in the 50's or maybe the 40's. I read it in my history book way back in jr high.

Mmm, biological zombie-making warfare. This is one of the many reasons you're so spifftastic. <3

Pffft. I'm the one who sleeps with a stuffed owl named Jareth, and says "Sorry, Your Goblininess" each night as I wrap my arms around him and crush him between my breasts. xD;;

*is torn between making a geeky joke about Labyrinth or making a sexual joke about wishing she was that owl*

Ouch, my brain. XD
