Well, _I_ would be willing to take that chance. Heck I'd even go if it was
certain that I'd die within a day or two. And I'm sure lots of other
people will, after all you can do a lot of research in a few days if you
know what you're looking for... Maybe if the first ones to go are willing
to make that sacrifice the ppl coming next can protect themselves.


PS: Millions of ppl are sacrificed in wars at least once per century, why
shouldn't we be prepared to sacrifice a few 1000's on something eternaly
more worthwhile???
