duh...
10 June 2010 | by imizrahi2002See all my reviews

raises a question of countries not being equipped, says the other reviewer? basic biology should teach us this... and that every breath is a miracle. it will never cease to amaze me(although it is unDOUBTedly one of the more clever mind mechanisms to prevent us from going crazy thinking about this sort of stuff aaaaaaaalllllllllllllll the time) that people don't realize how easily something such as an aids virus might mutate so that it can be spread through the air by droplet nuclei(a sneeze)... which just goes to prove that some education CAN be a dangerous thing. ;-) we're always just 'this/that close' to being wiped out en masse... maybe it's the ace up nature's sleeve just in case we get TOO destructive. although, re:me, it should've happened alREADY then... but please don't mistake this for a death wish on my part. too many good movies yet to be made...
