An interesting twist on the potential danger of the dead.

Okay, now, usually, when someone says something about how dangerous the dead are, I’m thinking the walking dead. Zombies, vampires, ghouls and the like. But, according to this article on WiredNews.com, the dead can be dangerous in real life!
Frankly, this hadn’t really occurred to me before, but it makes sense. With all the biological warfare agents out and about in the world, a large group of dead can be quite troublesome. Imagine, if you will, a great big pile of very, very infectious corpses baking in the sun. How do you dispose of them without spreading the contagion? How do you handle them to even figure out what the disease, or other agent, that killed them even is? All very good questions. For a few answers, read the article.
