truly, there is no practice so stupid that humans will not keep doing it
there are times when all one can do is stand back in bewildered awe and mutter “you cannot possibly be serious…”
alas, in so many cases, they are indeed and sometimes deadly so.
it appears that, not content with one global disaster, a group of researchers from boston university, the cleveland clinic, brigham hospital, and harvard (there is a strong boston slant here) are hotwiring omicron to (wait for it) see if they can make it much more deadly.
and guess what? they did!
THIS STUDY is simply terrifying.
