So does that mean Blade only has half-syphilis?

People are gross. Seriously. Wasn't syphilis almost gone?

It's still  almost gone.  It's been kind of hovering around the verge of extinct for a while, we haven't expended the effort required to push it over the edge mostly because it's it's treatable now and large-scale extermination of diseases sort of has diminishing returns after a while.

//Contrast with Polio, which we kicked in the figurative balls as hard as we could because the condition couldn't actually be treated, really, once you had it.

 General paresis for the win!  Before I read the article, I thought the point was going to be that you only thought you were a vampire.

Sounds like some folks need a good dose of Malaria.

Ok, this is going to kill me. What is the headline from? I feel like I just heard it.
Arrested Development?
