i for one welcome our new bacterial overlords.

Welcome? they've been dominating the food chain for a while now. Where do you think the idea of black magic came from. A guy you wish harm to is walking along and starts to get progressively ill, no one stabbed him and he ate the same meal you did so you review what you did the previous day while thinking how much you'd like to stick the fellow.

Bacteria, can't live without them. Likely to kill you in the end. Almost certain to get at your corpse when you're done with it.

Aka above us in the food chain.

Oh, I too welcome our old bacterial overlords.
