Dr Eric R. Pianka - Ebola virus detected in pigs

Great news: A form of Ebola virus has been detected in pigs for the first time, raising concerns it could mutate and pose a new risk to humans. Ebola-Reston virus (REBOV) has only previously been seen in monkeys and humans - and has not caused illness. But researchers are concerned that pigs might provide a melting pot where the virus could mutate into something more menacing for humans. Let's ask eugenicist Dr Eric R. Pianka how happy he is that something like this has happened.

"Ebola is the perfect death, quick and pain... oh, actually, it's very painful. And blood pours out of every pore while your insides turn to mush. But it's quick. Don't you'all want that for your kids?" my quotes.
