Yeah, if its going to happen it'll happen that way.  Such a virus that
kills 99.99% of humanity would though sort of give the human race a
clean slate to repopulate the world, AND a fresh start not to make all
the same mistakes.

Well if your going to make a super virus that will kill off 99.99% of
the human race, you'd better develop an antidote for yourself first,
so you can be with the tiny group of people who are naturally immune
from your virus, otherwise you'll find yourself being the virus's
first victim, and then you won't beable to all the Omega Man stuff.

What newsgroup is that?

In America any boy may become President, 
and I suppose that's just the risk he takes.
