Ok, to prove how desperate I am to win an iPad, I’m currently trying out a competition run by SMLates, which is a series of late events at the Science Museum. Next week they have a Science of Bioterrorism event and as part of it they are currently running a game where you get to ‘infect’ people and the top 20% most infective people get to go into a draw to win an iPad. I have already, unsurprisingly, infected Mr. Lacer but I would love to infect some more, not just because I’m desperate for said iPad but because the biology nerd in me find the potential for the stats for the game fascinating, as you get to see what your contagious rate is and how many direct infections, secondary infections, third degree infections and fourth degree and beyond infections, you cause.
So go on, *cough, cough* and *splutter, splutter*, I’m very contagious (click here and sign up to play!).
