If I'm still alive at 110, I won't care.

That's interesting.  I wonder what this article has to - (scrolls down) - AHHHIIIGGHH!!!!

I wonder if that's what's happening to those horses.

This has been going on for millions of years. Now they have found a way to count estimate it.

Well, might as well do it like they do on the Discovery Channel in that case.

That's why I'm purposefully evolving back into an amphibian.

The purpose of the mammal is to flip out and kill people.

There's no way I'm living to 100. I'd like to but gee whiz...I dunno. Sounds like a long time.

Based on this thread alone, I would support a voting system that weighted each vote with that particular voter's remaining life expectancy.

why no go to 40,000
i don't believe the 4,000
now 400 i would worry about as that seems reasonable and doable.

In all seriousness, I worked at a hospital too long. I genuinely don't want to get much past 85 and that's assuming I'm still in good shape at that point.

There's obvious questions here that the article doesn't even attempt to answer:
How does that compare to the rate of new virii appearing say... 20 years ago?
A quick Google search says there's 6,495 known species of mammal. On average, how many different species does one virus infect, and therefore, how many of those new virii will actually hit a given species?
What percentage of virii are just colds, vs. things that are actually dangerous?

Depending on the answers to these questions, the +4000 is anywhere from "we won't even notice", to "this is bad, but manageable", to "holy fark".

The way I eat and drink?  That will kill me long before any super virus.
Enjoy your death trap, mammals!

Too late, I'll be fertilizer by then... Get off my fertilized lawn!

Nope; bad system- it leaves me with a vote.

I'm sure the bats kill disease carrying mosquitos so killing bats would just move the disaster up a notch, and irritate me personally.

I hike Au-naturel and aside from bee stings, everything rinses off.

Ahem....... 4000 new virus between 8 billion humans and trillions of animals/insects.  A blip, we found a blip!!
Everyone PANIC!

Biologists estimate that 380 trillion viruses are living on and inside your body right now-10 times the number of bacteria. Some can cause illness, but many simply coexist with you.

When the dinosaurs were wiped out, there were little furry mammals running around that eventually became humans and dominated the planet.

Now that we're wiping ourselves out, I wonder what currently existing little beasties will eventually evolve to take over. Rats? Cockroaches?

Don't blame "climate change" when the CDC is doling out big cash to a bunch of medical eggheads who've got nothing to do with their time but fark with various viruses to see what happens.

Viruses and other infectious diseases much easier to spread in warmer weather as the bugs that spread them will travel further due to more regions becoming hospitable. Think Zika virus in Alabama.
