This is how it ends.
The "Swine Flu".
Shit, there isn't any swine flu. Someone opened up one of the "seven vials".
This is how the Government is going to solve the recession. Knock off 1/3 of the World's population.
You're going to start seeing military personnel in bio-hazard suits pretty soon. The local police will be on "crowd control". The media won't be reporting very much of it, just glancing asides as something more mind-numbing (no doubt a celebrity scandal) fills the airwaves. Until of course, the Gov't takes over the radio and TV stations.
Another couple of weeks, the net will be full of hazy images of bodies burning in fields. Corpses being loaded onto flatbeds with pitchforks. Countries will start closing down there borders. But it will be too late.
Then the religious hysteria will start. The "end of days" extremists. Group suicides. Cities will burn.
Or, maybe I'm still just a little "enhanced" from the Dead show the other nite.
In that case... never mind!
