Default (: The Horrible Infectious Disease Poll! :)

Which one do you want the least?


Bubonic plague:
Painful, infectious, a classic.

Smallpox:
When it comes to shear misery, it's hard to top Smallpox.

Cholera:
Violent diarrhea that can kill in hours.

Ebola:
This disease will melt you from the inside out. Get infected monday; by thursday you are projectile vomiting your own liquified organs.

Rabies:
Once in the bloodstream it has the highest mortality rate of any known disease (only one person in human history - Jeanna Giese - is believed to have survived an infection), and the symptoms are pretty nasty to boot: severe muscular spasms, agonising thirst arising from hydrophobia, frothing of the mouth, insanity, paralysis, and then mercifully, death.

Aids:
People will be able to say you have Aids.

What a cynical poll! Black forum humor at it's best here!

Bubonic Plague for me. I'd hate to die but I'd hate to spread it and kill others even more.

I thought a boy had survived rabies.

I'd go for AIDS. there was a show on TV last night where you could dress up as AIDS.

D: They're all horrible. But I picked Rabies, just cos there's tons of symptoms at once, though Ebola sounds just as awful...

Wow, you complain about my thread, but look at your's. It is simular to this one: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/foru...ad.php?t=89124. Which disease would you rather have out of all of them. By the way, if I had to vote, it would be Plague.

Libra, you can survive rabies if you are given the vaccine before you're symptomatic. After symptoms appear it's a different story. There have only been a handful of symptomatic rabies survivors, but they were all due to vaccine mishaps.
Only Jeanna Giese has survived an infection without a vaccine.

Prodigious diarrhea is characteristic of Cholera, pikachugirl2.

Yeah Meaty, like I said in-thread: your poll's problem was that your featured diseases were all over the map as far as death rate, suffering, virulence, or really any variable went. These have more commonality, as they are all god awful.

Some of the things I left off because they weren't quite horrible enough: Leprosy, Syphilis, Kuru, & Creutzfeldt-Jakob.
I'll have to give some thought to an inborn disease poll. There are so many monsterous options.


P.S. I feel Smallpox isn't getting it's fare shake due to my lackluster description.
There's a reason why we've tried so hard to exterminate Smallpox globally.
It's estimated that Smallpox killed between 85 & 95% of the native population of the Americas during European colonization. And it's second to none where suffering's concerned.
(I have extended the description in white text below. Don't read it if you're squeamish.
I'm warning you, it really is quite horrible. This is the most horrible disease imo.)

You develop painful pus-filled blisters all over your skin; while you alternate between boiling with fever & freezing with chills.
In the most extreme form of the illness the pustules grow larger & larger until they merge and your flesh becomes a sack of grave wax. Like a big pustule it can rupture, and you can lose skin in large sheets. The pustules are also often on the inside of your mouth, rear end, and other internal areas. These areas can sluff off in sheets as well, sometimes leaving you with a tube of skin hanging out your pants that used to be the lining of your intestine.
