That's funny. I had exactly the same experience on my Mac (i7 with 8 GB) running Windows 8.1. It told me to wait until the 29th of July. I checked the bottom right corner of the screen, where it said July 29, 2015 or something similar, waited for about twenty minutes, and gave up.

You should first find out what the people died of. The people who "die from a vaccine" often die from something completely unrelated to the vaccine. If you calculate the number of people who really die because of the vaccine it might be such a small percentage that it's not worth the effort to improve the vaccine.

That's the wrong interpretation of "fittest." I don't know who coined the phrase (it certainly wasn't Darwin) but in the context of evolution "fittest" means the individual organism that is best suited to the environment it lives in, which is not necessarily the strongest individual.
