Actually, Herpes B virus is really scary (even worse than the cold sore-kind). The CDC says, "Infection with B virus is extremely rare in humans; however, when it does occur, the infection can result in severe neurologic impairment or fatal encephalomyelitis [inflammation of the brain and spinal cord] if the patient was not treated soon after exposure." It has an 80 percent mortality rate.
Perform enough biomedical research on monkeys, and they're gonna wise up eventually. I predict the beginning stages of this:
Imagine that, a developer running regional planning. Does Jeff Fuqua know about this?
