### Yes, indeed, since making deadly viruses still takes a lot of work,
knowledge and money, the kind of people who can make the viruses (i.e.
well-organized and well-funded) tend to be also uninterested in just
killing themselves and everybody else. But this may not be true in the
future, when viruses could be created with trivial effort by a lone
individual, which includes deranged and suicidal individuals, as in the
scenario I outlined.

### Traveling the world while exhaling a thousand deadly viruses should
work better. If you release the viruses in one city only, there is a chance
that the bio-defence agencies might deploy thermonuclear weapons early
enough to prevent spread.

### Yes, complete and worldwide surveillance of all assets capable of
generating viruses might be our only way of delaying this catastrophe.

I will be starting another thread about how we could actually defend
ourselves against it in the post-singularity future.

### If biohazard-suited enforcers with machine guns break down your door at
night and drag you away to indefinite detention and questioning, it might
be because you read this thread.

Readers beware!
