No it's the truth. And it wasn't bubonic plauge that killed everyone, it was pneumonic plauge. After the bubonic plauge became airborne that killed millions of people off. The original infection started from tick and flea bites, it later became airborne and became much more dangrous. Pneumonic plauge was more common in large urban centers of course, in your smaller towns and whatnot it was simply carried by rats.
Unfortunatly several of the strains of plauge are now drug resistant, and only the most powerful antibiotics will kill it. Even penicillin won't kill some of them off for a few simple reasons. Over prescribeing antibiotic's, and those that take it don't take the full dose. You know the type that take the anitbiotics until they feel better and stop. Yeah those they're the type that will doom us. Most of this information is available on the CDC's website if your intrested on reading more. Even your public library will have books showing the mutation rates of the plauge, and the resistance built up because of over prescribeing and not following recommeneded doses.
I am a historian, and I've spent 15 years studying the black death. Why and how it started, why and how it droped off, and what caused insergences.
I personaly don't look at it as funny, I look at it as an event that may happen again.
