Sneezing symptom mutated. Novel coronavirus developed the sneezing symptom without using DNA points.

Er, dude? Colloidal silver has no use in the human body, and will only turn you blue if you drink it often

VioletKid September 28, 2013 - 8:58 AM

to me it seems like whenever humans cure a terrible disease or find an inhibitor to slow the diseases progress, a new and more terrifying virus/barceria/fugus comes along and continues where the previous disease left off.
That's what I see

Yeah after it killed millions of people.

kunstsein October 27, 2013 - 2:50 AM

That virus is around since the thirties, it goes by the name television.

GeneralBlackNorway October 27, 2013 - 7:43 PM

Yes, but a lot fewer people die these days because we have exterminated the really bad ones. This is just hyped up and people are scared there is going to come a new really bad virus. To this day, I can say with certainty there has not been any plague that killed 4 of the 7 billion people on Earth.
