    Esquire did a great story on a group of scientists who are working to fight TB.

    These two paragraphs are the best thing I've read this week:

    Wow, what a detailed description of bug. Never thought it was possible to talk about bug like that.
    You'd think scientists get off on this stuff by the way this was described. Doesn't take much for them to get aroused I guess...
    I wonder how bored the writer from Esquire was when writing about this...unless they are a scientist themselves.

    I'm thinking that the writer saw it as a challenge to describe something so "boring" in a way that would get readers interested and perhaps teach them something.

    Perhaps there's a lesson there for all of us.

    Yeah you should stay away from TBscientists.com. What a buncha freaks on that message board.
