Yeah, but the hypothesis about Toxoplasma is not new, it is older. I have heard it before. Was thinking of infecting my girlfriend with it once :lol: That guy just came up with some more evidence to support it..

Actually Linn, I got this article from a budding sci-fi writer, apparently a conspiracy novel about the government, a fringe fanatic group and viruses/bacteria in general.
