Why I'm Not Writing today - Bad Voodoo edition

I've been playing Pandemic and Pandemic 2, two flash games where you take the part of a disease, and your objective is to kill as much of humanity as possible. I've tried to tell myself it's educational, that I'm learning about vectors of transmission and the components that make a virus more lethal ... but increasingly a superstitious part of my lizard brain is getting activated, telling me not to mess around with this sort of stuff lest I bring on the germ-pocalypse.

I link in the belief that you're more enlightened than I am.
