Why I'm moving to Madagascar

I discovered this addicting--not to say infectious--online game the other day, and for some reason, I can't shake the desire to wipe out humanity.

Why? Because it's fun.

In Pandemic II, you create a disease: virus, bacterium, parasite--whatever tickles your apocalyptic fancy. Then you set it loose on the world. But you're not a hands-off deity. Oh, no. You can continue to mutate your scourge, making it more communicable, more robust, and of course more deadly.


I managed to wipe out the entire Earth only once. Usually, Madagascar, with its one seaport and apparently hyper-paranoid central government, is the only holdout on the entire planet. Anyone know any good Madagascarian Realtors?
