Seriously, as a writer, I should be making this up. The problem is, it isn’t a plot from a medical thriller. It isn’t a SciFi gem. It isn’t even an X-Files episode. It’s real.
There are amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) in lakes that have already killed six.
Come on, they were killed by brain eating amoeba. That’s at least a cool way to go. A little painful maybe, but you could have “killed by pond scum” on your tombstone.
