So you probably heard about Muhammad Ali (74, Boxing Legend), Gordie Howe (88, Hockey Legend), Sean Rooks (46, Sixers ass’t coach), Manohar Aich (104, Indian Body Builder), even Peter Then, the Indonesian Priest who drowned, lived up to his name. Bottom line, people are dying. Quickly.

bubonicplagueBased on this article, it’s apparent that the plague is back. Plague is an infectious disease that is caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. Depending on lung infection, or sanitary conditions, plague can be spread in the air, by direct contact, or very rarely by contaminated undercooked food. The symptoms of plague depend on the concentrated areas of infection in each person: bubonic plague in lymph nodes, septicemic plague in blood vessels, pneumonic plague in lungs. It is treatable if detected early.

Early Warning Signs

Now before you run into the bomb shelter and start making sure you have enough rations, it’s important to stay calm. Yes, people are dying off at a rapid pace, but it’s not the time to overreact. One could argue that media coverage has gotten so prevalent that you’re bound to hear about more people dying than ever before. It can also be argued that without the media, a person like Kimbo Slice would never have been famous in the first place so you wouldn’t have heard about him dying. These are both relevant arguments but let’s screw our heads on straight for a moment. The bubonic plague / Black Death was resting for the last 700 years and is returning in full force. I urge you to buy the stock NVAX which produces a vaccine for RSV which has nothing to do with the Black Death. However, with your funding, I’ll contact the CEO and make him aware of my inkling which I’m pretty sure will result in mass scientists being put on researching a cure. Get with the program people and avoid the black death. You’ve been warned.
