phaseolus: BigLuca: This just means you have to sleep your mom should have slept with black guys until you contract sickle cell.

/off to the YMCA!

it's a genetic trait

I'm not sure how my mom sleeping with black guys would help me get sickle cell.  We aren't that close of a family.

Came here to swat some of the 'Silent Spring Kills People' crowd, but I see it's been taken care of.

Unfortunately, they're like mosquitoes...

/we are using DDT to breed a master race of mosquitoes.

Why do you think the Jews are so smart?

Nazis. The Nazis bred a race of Super Jews.

Why do you think Jews now control all the money and Hollywood, and the media in general?

letrole: BronyMedic: Evolution. How the fark does it work? Must be like magnets to you, Amos.

This text is now purple: That's natural selection. The species adapted, but it's still genetically compatible with non-selected versions of its species. It has not speciated, and thus, has not evolved.

The resistance to DDT was always there. The niche that all mosquitos fill was always there. When the DDT susceptible mosquitos were killed, they left no offspring. The offspring of DDT resistant mosquitos faced less competition and were able to ensure that the mosquito niche remained filled.

This is not evolution. This is not even natural selection. DDT isn't natural. This is unintended selective breeding.

Same goes for anti-biotic resistant bacteria.

You'd get more bites if you called it what it really is.

Who cares?

Malaria is a plague Jesus sends to afflict the godless hordes of Asia and Africa. You'd think all that suffering and death would cause them to turn to my Lord and Savior, but I guess they're too wicked or dense to see the light.

Ever wonder why there's NEVER any malaria in America? Because the Founding Fathers established America as a Christian nation, that's why.

Of course, now that America is turning away from God and allowing gays and foreigners to freely wander about as though they belong here, I wouldn't be surprised if pestilences like malaria started to show up here, just like AIDS. Beware, liberals. You ignore Jesus at your own peril.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Guess I'll have to switch to gin and tonic

From what I've heard, the amount of quinine in tonic nowadays is negligible. I've heard worse excuses for drinking though, so I'm just going to pretend that my rampant alcoholism is due to my fear of communicable diseases.

unamused: Silent Spring continues its fabulous kill rate.

It wouldn't be a proper Fark Malaria thread without this talking point, would it?
