Emola spreads quickly through humans although it strangely has a higher transmition rate in those aged 13 to 24. Anyone can come down with the disease but the elderly and young infants to toddlers rarely come down with it.
Emola is spread through shared needles, most bodily fluids including tears and in some rare cases emails or other forms of electronic communication such as MySpace, FaceBook, web sites promoting rock bands or online dictionaries that define terms in pop culture.
Symptoms of emola include uncontrollable crying, tendency to complain, tendency to inflict personal harm, tendency to cause property damage, addiction to social networking sites, addiction to the color black, addiction to rock music with high-pitched vocal ranges and heavy use of power chords, uncontrollable harsh criticism of anything for no apparent reason and may possibly lead oneself to committ suicide. Treatment includes many different options but mostly includes sitting in a nearly deserted room with no sharp objects colored with bright colors with a smiling psychologist from some big-name university or college sitting in front of you with just a table in between the 2 of you with a "mirror" on one wall and hidden cameras placed everywhere in the room.
There is no known prevention for emola at this time except staying away from people who have contracted the disease and cutting off all forms of communication with them.
