..and you think Sissy Boy George is gonna quit blinking?

..whoever wrote Sobig.F is smart enough to add those last 
Blaster's tricks into his G.  G for Gas like in Zyklon-B? 

..those subway tracks _are_ separate from those used by freight 
trains, carrying, say, _chemicals_?  And there really really is 
_no_way_, a virus can go play tick-tack-tick-tack-trick-track?

..2 reason diesel-electric locomotives are popular; they are 
about as clean as your average power utility, and they dont 
put heavy loads on the power grids.  So, freight trains on 
the loco move keeps moving when the power grid is taken out, 
and will swat people off the track all the way to the fire.

..the locomotive engineers needs to be onboard and alive and 
capable of preventing anyone from tampering with the dead 
mans button system, to stop their freight trains.  FUD?  ;-)

..med vennlig hilsen = with Kind Regards from Arnt... ;-)

  Scenarios always come in sets of three: 
  best case, worst case, and just in case.
