Wasn't this the terrible plot of Mission Impossible 2?

Twice in two days. Remarkable.

GREAT! I just got through 1/2 of EverymanHYBRID and now this only adds to my paranoia.

If this keeps happening, pretty soon we'll all have our own vial....

Was there a cute monkey involved?

You'd think they'd have learned the first time

So the vial with the virus has the pellet with the poison?

Good luck Texans.

TEXANS on the other hand... Goodbye.

The medical branch says the virus, native to Venezuela, is transmitted only through contact with Venezuelan rats. It is not believed to be able to survive in U.S. rodents or to be transmitted person-to-person.

Close my Venezuelan Rat Theme Park? Not today! I got a thousand kids from the Hemophiliac Childrens Hospital coming buy. And those kids are loaded with cash!

Are they sure that the hemorrhagic fever is caused by the virus and not just by being in Galveston?

Good. The only thing that stops a bad man with a vial is a good man with a vial.

No, the pestle that was pilfered has the pellet with the poison. The vial with the virus holds a brew that is true.

Is this strain prone to mutation? Specifically what parameters did they use to determine whether or not it's likely to be safe? And assuming the first two questions return desirable answers - how certain are they that these vials weren't taken for human manipulation to solve the problems presented with the first to.

So, first Texas cuts funding to Planned Parenthood, resulting in a 74 million dollar 'savings', resulting in a 200+ million future expenditure to cover all the Unplanned Parenthood that that caused.

On top of this, random vials of pathogens are just... lost. It's like they do this stuff to just spice things up.

Texas sounds fun in the same way seeing a retard playing with a sharp instrument is 'fun'.

To do that you'd need a fairly sophisticated lab, of which there aren't many. The issue being if you try to convert it into something that can be spread between people you want to make sure you don't spread it to yourself. And labs that have such controls, aren't the sort of places where you could work on such a thing easily without getting noticed.

Well, I know there was one before 3 and Ghost Protocol.

I'm sure this really happened, and is a true threat to the public.

Must never let up on making us thing this is a vewwy dangerous world!

Whats wrong with Mission Impossible 2? You didn't expect it to make sense or be intelligent did you? Seriously if you are looking for an intelligent movie try to avoid movies starring Tom Cruise, and sequels, for starters.

Look at the bright side.....if the worst happens, the numbers will balance out. Just seal off the roads and airports and let nature take its course.

When vials are outlawed... only outlaws will have vials?
