Did you hear about the Scottish farmer that broke his leg when didn't seed the ewe turn?

FTA:  "It was believed the virus was carried to England by midges blown across the Channel and was then spread by native midges during the summer, government scientists have said."


Oh, midges.

Never mind, then.

So the plot of the Children of Men creates the Silence of the Lambs?

Why can't they just wear condoms like normal people?

I'm glad that drake112 and mrlewish are way ahead of me.

And maybe someone can explain to me what possible reason research like this would ever be done. Is some dipshiat working on Solanum too?

Ha yeah.. Was thinking along the same lines. The future could be very scary if the wrong people get the wrong tech. Imagine when nano-bots become all the rage in 50 or so years and hackers aren't just making viruses anymore they're making nano-viruses. Scary shiat.

I wonder what Ted Kaczynski was fearing.. a future like this?

Eh, I think Nano-bots (TRUE nanobots anyways) are still a ways off. Getting nanoscale structures to chemically self-assemble without a high degree of disorder is, currently a biatch and a half. (That is, say, trying to get spheres to stick to the end of a rod, and you'll get spheres sticking to each other, spheres sticking to rods, rods forming daisy chains, etc etc.)

That said, I am working on a method to help with this with my advisor, so...

Normal people don't usually wear condoms when they're in a relationship.

FTA...A synthetic version of the Schmallenberg virus has been made in the laboratory by Scottish scientists.

The research raises hopes for developing a vaccine for the livestock disease, which causes lambs and calves to be stillborn.


Because they're trying to creat a vaccine for the disease.

Normal people don't usually wear condoms when they're in a relationship.
