Admit it: You are afraid of mad cow disease a little bit. Actually, you're afraid of the human version, Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease. You eat a burger or a steak and then ten years later you start walking a little unsteadily, slurring your words. Your personality changes - you get aggressive, or paranoid. From there it's insanity, coma, and death as your brain turns to jello.
And despite what you have heard, there is not always room for jello.
