An interesting (and somewhat chilling) article about virus modification in Foreign Policy: If something like this got out into the wild, what would be your game plan? I suppose my game plan would be to stay home & try to ride-out the storm. How long would that be? Would I know when to pull up the "gangplank" to the rest of society and sequester myself at home? Not trying to fear monger, but this research is going on and it's probably worth considering how you might react, whether your current preps would cover this, etc.
