In a daring experiment in Europe, scientists used mosquitoes as flying needles to deliver a "vaccine" of live malaria parasites through their bites. The results were astounding: Everyone in the vaccine group acquired immunity to malaria; everyone in a non-vaccinated comparison group did not, and developed malaria when exposed to the parasites later.

Now all we need to do is to round up 100 billion mosquitoes and give them a swine flu vaccine.

Bill Gates has already volunteered to unleash the mosquitoes on crowds of people. BIll Gates mosquito attack. <-- TRUE
