Also known as consumption, tuberculosis or TB is a common and deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria. It attacks the lungs and respiratory system, but can also attack the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the circulatory system, the genitourinary system, bones, joints and even the skin.

Symptoms include chest pains, coughing blood, prolonged coughing, chills, night sweats, pallor, lose of appetite, weight lose, and easy fatigue. Though tuberculosis is not known for being especially contagious, it can be rather easy to transmit, since TB is spread through infected aerosols via coughing, spitting, speaking, kissing, and sneezing. Tuberculosis attacks everybody differently. While it can take months to years for the TB infection to become the TB disease in some people, it can easily become the full flight disease in some people in a matter of weeks.

If left untreated, TB causes death. (duh)

Since tuberculosis is caused by a bacteria, treatment is available via antibiotics, though there is currently no vaccine for adults.

Due to medicial attention toward HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis has resurged.
On a lighter note, tuberculosis is probably the most overused disease found in historical manga/anime.

Wait, that's not good...

a legend that is hard to prove is true. or, it can be easy to prove it false. urban legends are usually written on paper most of the time. but when ppl pass it on it (which most of the time, is not a paper), the story changes from person to person. so thats why its hard to prove or disprove urban legends.
there are up to 7 variations of "the killer in the back seat" urban legend, so its possible that it is false.

its a region in spain. just like glacians, castilians, and catalans, they dun like the spanish government. it is also a very unique langauge. it is unique because there are no roots of the language to neother language in the world. not even ancient greek or latin. some say that it was the decent of the langauge of cavemen.
"bai" means "yes" basque (i think)

some 200 and somethin years ago in the southern gevaudan region of france, over 300 people were brutily killed by a ravenous beast known as "le bete de gevaudan" or the beast of gevaudan. the first encounter of the beast was lucky. when the beast charged at a young shepardess to move in for the kill, her herd charged at the beast, driving it back into the woods. the shepardess said that the beast was the size of a cow, had a puff at the end of its tail, and had a white stripe down its stomach. after the first encounter, dead bodies started showing up everywhere. mainly women and children or ppl who could not get away in time. the wolf was the prime suspect of the killing (of course). ao when the king of france sent his top hunting man to kill the beast, they only killed a very large wolf. though the killings stopped for a while, the killings continues soon after.

finally, the villagers pleaded Jean Chastel to kill the beast. Chastel was a wolf hunter and wolf hound breeder who hunted troublesome wolves. he was also one of the only men in the area to own a gun, which was rare at the time. so on June 19, 1767 (or somethin or other) Jean Chastel and 300 other hunters and beaters made their way through the forests to bring out the beast. in a clearing, Jean Chastel laid and waited, with his gun, a prayer book, and two blessed silver bullets. soon, the beast emerged and stood right in front of him. Chastel took is gun and aimed at the beast's throat. he shot and the beast was stunned for a minute and then fell. the beast of gevaudan was no more.

though the beast was finally dead, the mystery still remains. the description from chastel or ne of the wittnesses did not match to being a wolf or a heyena (second prime suspect). from the puffy tail and white strip, many historians and crpytozoologists think that the beast may have been a wolf- dog hybrid; where the father was a wolf and the mother was a dog. many think that the monster was a part of a plan to over through the king of france. but who was behind it. was jean chastel part of the murder, or were there others...
the wolf is clearly innocent in the case of the beast of gevaudan, but what was it???
