Fossa Posted August 30, 2016 Share Posted August 30, 2016 I was thinking that the Zika virus has a really cool sounding name. It's fun to say, I mean it could almost be some kinda new dance or exercise movement. If I have a kid, I could even see naming them Zika. Not all viruses are as lucky to have such a great name. I mean look at AIDS. What a dumb name. As if it aids you in anything, except at one time, death, and nowadays, a lifetime of very expensive medication, and iffy side effects. Then, take mono, or the Epstein-Barr virus. It's OK, but one just pictures these guys in white lab-coats, a-la Donna Reed era. Boring. But Zika, I like. I know it can be bad, and make babies have small heads, but babies always scare me anyways, and they seem to have too big of heads, so maybe this will adjust it so they look normally proportioned, even if they have a myriad quagmire of health issues that cost millions of dollars, later. In any event, the Republicans in congress keep refusing to fund any research in terms of a cure, or anything else, so I guess Republicans are the pro Zika party, and they like Zika too, even if I do not like them. Bad luck for babies, but still at least they get a virus with a nice name. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
