World Malaria Day



If you've got spare time (and who doesn't?) and want to help out a good cause and have fun at the same time, the United Nations has got you covered. They get involved in world politics and haven't been the biggest fans of the USA lately, but they are all about helping fight malaria, and that's good, one less thing to worry about.

Go there, play the game, register your email address, and they will send a mosquito net to Africa for your troubles. It's like the free rice game without feeling bad because you read at a third grade level.

It's a win, win, win.

I say bring back DDT. Then we could have this malaria issue cleared up in, oh...2 weeks.

Check out the Malaria Clock, which keeps a running estimated total of unnecessary malaria suffering and deaths that have resulted because of the ban on DDT:
