I don’t know how scared I should be of Monkeypox considering it doesn’t seem to be transmittable from human to human, but I’m a little frightened nonetheless. I mean, what happens if the virus mutates into a human form? What if this is really just some sort of conspiracy to let praire dogs conquer the earth?

All of the Sci-Fi, comic books and punk rock I’ve consumed in my youth seem to have permanently disposed me towards seeing possibilities for a dystopian future. Doesn’t this whole monkeypox thing sound like the start of a really bad outbreak type movie? I just hope that there aren’t so many people of my age with the same experiences that we really make “No Future” happen at some point.

On further thinking, Monkeypox wouldn’t make a bad name for a band…stay tuned, loyal reader.
