    So how about a cure for cancer or aids and publicly releasing that?

    No, no no. I think I'll just keep making stuff that kill people.

    Next up on the list, an ebola like AIDS virus that transmits via skin contact. Strictly research of course.

    Why fuck around with plain vanilla Ebola - use Marburg.

    No the pick of the crop would have to be the Zaire ebolavirus.

    I thought marburg was more virulent. I did a quick google but didn't look too hard and found this from 2005.

    "Also known simply as the Zaire virus, ZEBOV has the highest case-fatality rate, up to 90% in some epidemics, with an average case fatality rate of approximately 83% over 27 years. There have been more outbreaks of Zaire ebolavirus than of any other species. "

    Source Not sure which link is more solid, perhaps I'll find a more solid link later.
