Be kind to your local viruses -You don't want them mad at you!

Now here is something that is really whacked!!!

Ron Huber asks me in a recent email:
  • Ever wonder how far the viruses on our planet would stretch if they were lined up end-to-end?
I am thinking, well there are plenty, so I would not be surprised at say maybe all the way across the country.... ahhhhhhhhhhh nope, off by a little bit

He continues:
  • Answer: 100 times the diameter of our galaxy!

ok there goes the neighborhood!
