So i got home after work and read a little bit of seanan_mcguire's "Discount Armageddon" before crashing really early. I'd just started the book on thursday and hadn't gotten very far, so i picked it back up at the bottom of page 41. I finished that page, flipped to page 42, and the second paragraph on the page finished up "Without a bezoar to purify the stuff, I'd probably have managed to catch some new and interesting variety of plague."
(Also somewhat ironically, the Semagic dictionary doesn't know what a "bezoar" is. Hey Semagic, it's a good word to know! :)
