What's the scariest thing you heard/read recently?

"For well over a century, it has been considered settled fact that the pestilence was a catastrophic outbreak of bubonic plague and a variant called pneumonic plague, which attacks the lungs. However, since in modern settings neither form of plague looks or acts much like the illness described in the Black Death literature, a number of historians and scientists have recently begun to argue that the mortality was caused by a different infectious illness." ~John Kelly, The Great Mortality: An Intimate History of the Black Death, the Most Devastating Plague of All Time
