    This year, next year or the following perhaps? You must have picked up this notion from somewhere, can't you expand on "just wait and see"?

    Or maybe one of the other 4 trillion viruses? Nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat! Know what I mean?

    Personally I'm more concerned by the potential outbreak of a lethal form of Athletes foot. No one would take it seriously, perfect germ warfare. :cool:

    As a bonus it's just as likely as Marburg.

    Once jon (no idea what he does for a living) has the bit between his teeth and is in full troll mode, he gets very self important. It's also when his posts are in full 'clueless' mode.
