Well this is a fine example of organisms evolving for all of those creationists who will argue that Noah put these new super bugs on the Ark and that nobody bothered discovering them or getting sick by them because, reasons.

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.

they do but they wont tell you, from the article

The researchers found that almost all of the 305 CRE infections identified in the study were health care-related. Greater use of broad-spectrum antibiotics is one of the factors associated with the growing number of CRE infections. Another factor is increased transmission between long-term acute care facilities and community hospitals, according to the study authors.

it is a hospital infection pretty much what was predicted decades ago, due to very high use of antibiotics, weather it is needed or not, so "bug " adopts, now we can't kill.

Have you recently been in a hospital or other healthcare facility?

We don't have accents. Y'all that don't sound like us have accents.

Good to know that our propaganda is working. :clap:

Notice you didn't include a map of college football national championships. The southeast is heavily represented in those also. :yes:

50% death rate with the OP infection. That is pretty bad. If it really takes off then we'll see a big pandemic go around the world fairly quickly.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
