Since you don't know about this disease, you probably didn't know about the pandemic of it going around mostly China and other Asian countries, did ya? This happened not too long ago, like around 2002-2003. It was pretty scary, there was this whole commotion of it going around the news stations, saying that it could become an epidemic around the world if infected people were to travel to different continants and let the virus continue on from there. I actually thought that we'd be forced to wear masks while we were outside. Much like the Bird Flu...
And Neuron Nexus, I agree with you! It is
like another Stomach Ache, but round! Heh heh, I can imagine that :D:D:D:D
