Plagues



Plagues and Peoples by William McNeill. This is a realy good book about how plagues and diseases have effected civilizations over the course of history.

The Antonine Plague fucked up Rome in the 170s

The Plague of Cyprian which fucked up Rome in 270

Plague of Justinian fucked up Rome and the Byzantine Empire in the 500s.

Black Death

Also if you ever go to the Rocky Mountain National Park there are signs telling you not to go near the marmots because they have fleas on them carrying the Bubonic Plague. When I got to the top of Lawn Lake mountain I saw a marmot, it was cute.

The swine flu is just another example of a ridiculous disaster panic that will turn out to be nothing in the end

I can say this with immunity (ha ha) because if something really terrible does happen we will be unable to use the internet (due to being dead) so yeah

I win
