Of all the science fiction writers, Philip K. Dick was the most prescient.
I suspect that the rise of the brain-eating amoeba is a foreshadowing of things to come.
Residents of eight cities have been alerted that a brain-eating amoeba was found in a southeast Texas water supply, leading one of the towns to issue a disaster declaration.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a water advisory to residents served by the Brazosport Water Authority warning customers not to use any water due to the presence of Naegleria fowleri, a brain-eating amoeba, found in the water supply on Friday evening.
“The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality at the direction of the Governor’s Office is working with Brazosport Water Authority to resolve the issue as quickly as possible,” the advisory reads.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the brain-eating amoeba is commonly found in soil, warm lakes, rivers, and hot springs. It can also be found in poorly maintained or unchlorinated pools and in warm water discharge from industrial plants.
The Do Not Use Water Advisory was issued for residents of Lake Jackson, Freeport, Angleton, Brazoria, Richwood, Oyster Creek, Clute and Rosenberg, Texas, as well as for the Dow Chemical plant in Freeport and the Clemens and Wayne Scott Texas Department of Criminal Justice corrections facilities.
“Don’t drink the water or you’ll get infected with a brain-eating amoeba” should be the slogan of the year 2020.
*UPDATE* Do Not Use Water Advisory LIFTED for most Brazosport Water Authority users

I want to know what evidence exists that a large portion of the population hasn’t already had its brain eaten. This could have been released last year, in order to get people prepared for coronavirus and the Black Lives Matter revolution.
It was in Louisiana back in 2018.
“Most of the population has already had large parts of their brains eaten” is probably the only satisfying explanation as to what is going on in our society right now.
