I liked the binned outcomes going to 22, when there were only 20 possible.

FTA: As much as I want to live in a world where there's a microbe called "Circle of Dead Children," this is not the case.

I lol'd. If I ever discover a deadly microbe, I'll name it thus.

I had to send this to a metal geek I trained. She explained the subtle distinctions between black metal and death metal to me. Also, plenty of bands with name related to microbes: Septic Flesh, Trep Pal, Mors Syphillitica.

Oh yeah, I trained her in clinical infectious diseases.

That's because metal goes to 11 instead of 10 - in this case, it does so twice.

You get a bonus point if you listen to the entirety of Paramecium's song, and it just goes to 11.

i know Circle of Dead Children is a metal band and not a microbe. i saw them at the Fireside Bowl back in '01. the lead singer popped a blood vessel in his head, continued thrashing as he sang, and got blood splatters all over my favourite shirt. :-/
