I found this link in another forum. Send me a private message if you can find anything wrong with this article, and if you reach the right conclusion, you get mad props!

Gill,
Thats just freaky okay! 8O

Alright, so whats wrong with this article? Well I'm just taking some stabs at this, but I can name quite a few things.

1. How is a person supposed to die in fewer than 2 days?
That would be negative days, and in this world, I don't think thats possible. They need to learn to word things more accurately.

2. In the second paragraph after the word person there needs to be a comma.

3.
Code:
Cambodian officials say that the outbreak has been contained and the public has no need to worry.


Lets think about this one. How is it possible for it to be contained? What, did they create, some virus or repelant that kills off every mosquitoe. It will take a lot more to contain something like that. Especially if the bug is native to the region.

4. What was Condoleeza Rice thinking? Is she trying to kill us all? Oh yeah! Sure, they would have probably figured out that they could use it as a biological weapon, but did she really have to give them the idea?

Let me know if any of these are right.

Winks,
Raven

It was published April 1st. So does that mean it was an April fools joke? Or was it just published that day by coincidence? Wow! that was the one thing I didn't catch.

Sigsfried,
What is that supposed to mean? Either I'm really tired right now, or you just confused me big time. :)

Well I thought you had actually realised it was an old April's fool after all you were taking apart the grammar that I thought you must have spotted the date.

Really sigsfried I'm not dense, but that I didn't catch that makes me feel that way.

The reason why I was picking apart grammar was because I was full of the devil yesterday and I had to be a little sarcastic. Hence the winks.

Raven :lol:
