12. Interesting article you posted about the flu pandemic back in 1918


Scary thing is these viruses multiply fast so they are always mutating. Usually they are not harmful but since it mutates a lot it's only a matter of time before it develops into a real bad one. Sorry to hear about your Grandpa being one of the victims.

I've seen some fascinating documentaries in the past about how the Black Death otherwise known as the Bubonic Plague completely changed the course of human civilization. Here are a couple articles about it if you're interested...the first one is short and describes all the mostly good things that came about in its aftermath...

14 Ways The Black Death Directly Shaped The Way We Live Now


This second one is a little longer and more scientific in nature...

The Bright Side of the Black Death


Turns out the end result was for the most part very beneficial...assuming you were lucky enough to be one of the 1-in-2 or 1-in-3 who survived. Musta been scarier than shit back then, though...literally a living hell from the sound of it.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
