Synthetic bioweapons are the name of the game in the Resident Evil franchise. Personally, I have always considered something like this to be a distinct possibility, so should we be surprised at this development?

Or should we all be calling for Leon S. Kennedy and friends to save the day once more?

The video game franchise "Fallout" is all I'm thinking when seeing news like this. In the Fallout universe, nuclear war breaks out in the year 2077 between USA and China (in this universe, the USSR still exists and is an ally to China) as the Earth's non-renewable resources like fossil fuels run out.

In our world, it just seems to be purely over who controls the World Order: the East or the West? I'm sure there are many factors I'm unaware of right now, but this buildup of military forces in the Pacific has me concerned for the future.

For more info on what I'm referring to, here's the Fallout Wiki's article on the "Great War" aka WWIII.

An anonymous reader writes "Per their website, "Zidisha is the first peer-to-peer micro-lending service to offer direct interaction between lenders and borrowers across the international wealth divide. We eliminate the middleman, ensuring that entrepreneurs' profits stay right where they belong – in their communities." Per their statistic page, they claim a 97.71% return rate, their average interest rate is multiples below the global average for micro-financed loans (even after adding their 5% finance fee), and they are just about to surpass $600K loans raised. Apparently they have so many stories to share that the director published a book. For those skeptical about capitalism, perhaps this is an example of how we can hack it into something better."

I feel as if a million T-Mobile customers screamed out in agony and are snuffed once they have read this article...

So, even though the account holder can disable the censoring, would it be an accurate guess that quite a few slashdotters with T-Mobile here are now considering leaving to a different telecom?
