Big G Makes WoW Gold

I would think that Linden (Second Life) would be a better place to experiment with viritual viruses than WoW.

WoW Guide Lover

That is very interesting. I knew there had been some studies done on the economics of MMORPG's but not plagues. Amazing stuff.

Hello, Thank you for this information, keep up the good work!

That's very interesting actually, it's funny that they had the idea to actually release a virus. In the real world however, it would be pure chaos.

Marc

On second thought, I bet most of those addicted wow players went crazy trying to rid their characters of the disease, much like the real world.

Wow Professions Guide

I always thought Wow was a great place to experiment. I mean people are totally free to be themselves without having to face social norms. Some people really show their true colors. But this virus thing, I dunno, seems like it has a potential to damage equipment.

Cheers!

"They are driven by strong winds. ... Under current climatic
conditions, they will not likely cause damage," Christian Pantenius, a
locust expert with the United Nations Food and Agriculture
Organization (FAO), told Reuters.

He said locusts do not feed when temperatures drop below 30 degrees
Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). Weather forecasters predict
temperatures here will remain about 77 degrees in coming days, and
Pantenius predicted the locusts will die or migrate south.

Here are a handful of plants I feel very comfortable recommending to you, like this 'Pink Lemonade' blueberry I'm dying to make a pie with. I tried them all last year and liked them enough to grow again this year. What new plants will you be finding space for, in your garden?

It is not difficult to introduce the virus but difficult is how to spread it among people, What should be the reason that one will suffer such virus.
