"You wouldn't assume that anything buried for hundreds of years would be viable," said La Farge, who researches mosses at the University of Alberta.

#1 | Posted by Zed, Anything is a possibility. Seeds retrieved from glaciers that have been frozen for 40,000 years germinated and grew. Something killed the megafloria about 12-14,000 years ago, but the specimens we have retrieved from the permafrost were all healthy when they died.

The next one will start on the sidewalks of San Diego, LA, and SanFran spreading like the Camp Fire of 2018.

#3 | Posted by SheepleSchism There was a revolution in life style during and after the black death. People started taking personal hygiene and the cleanliness of their domicile seriously. Typhus and cholera are still in the background. All it needs to break out is a population living in filth. One thing that is a serious danger is drug addicts already have a compromised immune system. How fast can Cholera kill? One day, sometimes mere hours.
