I think it is possible that something bad can come out of this, just like it is possible that massive earthquakes can sink half of california or the canary islands can erupt and send a tidal wave across the atlantic wiping out the east coast of the americas.
Basically, if the shit does hit the fan, there isn't a damn thing anyone is going to do about it, though I have bought a few fresh cloves of garlic just in case.
Oh and on a side note I was talking to my friend the other day about this exact issue and he has Herpies. He takes that anti-viral medication and he said basically if a viral outbreak did happen he would likely be unnaffected by it and has enough medication for several months of protection. Now wouldn't that be a kick in the nuts if a massive viral pandemic did happen and only the basterds who screwed around and got herpes lived through it. I think i'm gonna go get me some herpes just in case.
