The virus

 

There is only one virus in the likpa's world. Unfortunately it produces the disease of the Antenna Itching Deadly Syndrome, which has the strange property of killing 10% of the likpas and 90% of the phallos. So, despite that the phallos are preparing a new war against the likpas, the likpas offered them to read the genetic code of the virus with their new likgenetics liklaboratory. Because likpas are gentle and they intend to remain so despite the naughty phallos.

Important notice: this story takes place in the Likpa's world, not on Earth.

Next story: The funny Music Instruments of the Gentle Likpas

 

The gentle likpas are happy to likpate in their beautiful liklaboratory of likgenetics!!

 

This story takes place some weeks before starts the second Phallo's war (-709 likpa time, 2009 on Earth). Even if the Likpas are perfectly aware of what in about to happen, they still help the phallos in the humanitarian or medicinal domains.

 

It happens that they just finished the liksequencing of the genome of the virus. Yes really, THE virus, as on LikEarth only one virus is known, so everybody says «the virus». Alas it gives a very serious disease, the Antennae Itching Desperately Syndrome, precisely this disease which killed Likpato Martyr (See «The martyrdom of Likpato» in the first cycle), and which has the strange property of killing 90% of the phallos and only 10% of the likpas. We can expect that this situation is a constant subject of grudge from the phallos.

 

When the Antenee syndrome (as the Phallos called it) appeared, during the reign of the 13th king of the Phallos, it was much more deadly, killing more than 98 per cent for the Phallos. The first victim was the 13th king himself, and since his mummy was kept in the Améion, or Friendship Forum, an elegant dome of white tuff on columns, built by the Likpas of the Oréal on the path leading to the phallo's town, in token of peace and goodwill. The 11th Phallo king commanded the slaughter of the Oréal only some day after the inauguration of the Améion, and the last boobettes of the Oréal died in slavery in the following years. After the 13th king, during more than four centuries, the disease took toll on the Phallos with a terrifying regularity, shrinking their population to sometimes less than 5000. Even when the virus began to mutate and lose strength, the Phallos remained relatively few, just populating the immediate vicinity of their town without trying to colonize the whole island. These terrible epidemics subsided only with the reappearance of the likpas, but it was still rampant in the lowest depths of the Phallo's society, especially among the groofios

 

So samples of the mummy of the 13th king were taken, with for purpose to better know the virus at its origin, with sequencing its genetic code. The Likpas were able of this, but not the phallos. So we come to the liklaboratory of the likpas, just when they finished the sequencing, the first success of the genetic science of the likpas. They do a party, while waiting the Phallo scientists coming to receive the genetic code of the virus, in token of peace and good will, just some days before the Phallos declare war to the Likpas. We must sometimes pay a strong price to remain a Likpa, but it is always worth the price.

 

Likpato: «In facts, it is very simple, there are only four genes: The two envelop proteins, the hook, and the insertion protein. Diabolically simple.

Likpato: -Diabolically simple, but however terribly efficient. That thing killed mile than one million persons, without any cure was never found.

Likpato: -And the very first victim was the thirteenth King of the Phallos, just after he forbad the wearing of «ostentatious signs of likpatic belonging»

Likpato: -The antenna riper! The worse of all! Delikpated be his name!

Likpato: -What is strange is that the code is perfectly rational and optimized, there is even not one spare hexet. It looks as if it was studied and likpated willingly. (The genetic code is in hexets with six bits, when computer codes are in octets with eight bits).

Likpato: -Except this little intron in the beginning, everything is perfectly likpated.

(An intron is a part of genetic code which code for no gene and seems to be of no use).

Likpato: -But the strangest is the start codes of the four genes, which all have inhibit sequences which answer to special likpa hormones, such as antennine, libidine, merrysmiline, and screamlaughtine. And they all also have activation sequences which answer to phallo hormones: sourlookine, jealousine, scowline, filthytrickine.

Likpato: -And this makes that the disease does much more harm to the phallos than to the likpas.

Likpato: -But this is weird, it looks as if it was done purposely. How the same function could be likpated four times in four different places?

Likpato: -This makes one more mystery. Already we do not know how the virus appeared. And us no more, anyway.

Likpato: -Right. But this will not forbid us to likpate the feast, while waiting these old fogeys of phallo scientists.

Likpato: -Come everybody, we shall dance!!

All: -Liiiik!

Music: -It is the big lik lik lik who likpaaaaa-aates!

All: -Lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik

Likpato: -Bring the pinuts, the toasties and fruitie juice! We are going to likpate something into our throats!

Likpato: -Hey likpato, come to likpate with us, in place or staying behind this likputer screen!

Likpato: -Wait, I look at something. I likpated a strange dream this night, about this genome, precisely.

Likpato: -OK we continue to dance.

Music: -It is the big lik lik lik who likpaaaaa-aates!

All: -Lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik lik»

  (The Likpa's culture is not varied, but anyway it likpates).

  The feast is at its best, one eats pinuts, and toasties and drink fruitie juice. When the likpas dance, the most often they are by two, nose to nose, and they balance together from front to rear. And they laugh with this, and they are never tired of this.

 

Suddenly...

All: -Hey? What happens?» They all look at Likpato who contemplate his likputer screen with a terrified look. He jumps further, as if death could jump out of the screen.

«NOOO! This is not possible!!! It is horriiiible!!!! utter Likpato.

All: -What is... What is wrong?

Likpato: -Do... do not look! It is... It is crazy! It is completely weird!!!!»

But all gather around the screen, where the genome of the virus is still visible. But Likpato curiously likpated it. In place of the classical codons (LUA, LUR, RUA, ARU and the like...) Likpato replaced each of them by a letter of the alphabet. This, of course, gives a series of letters without any significance... Except in the intron, which clearly shows this text:

 

antakaralik lab lik2345 war virus num 23465 remember auweara

 

 

«Hey??? But it is a joke!! It is impossible!

Likpato: -If it is a joke, it is horrible!!

Likpato: -No no, it is not a joke, I just applied this transcoding to the genome!! It is... It is...

Likpato: -It is impossible, nobody knew how to CREATE a virus one thousand years ago!! We are just able to read its genetic code today!

Likpato: -Check if this is not a joke of this likpatous likpa. Let see the file as it went out of the genomic calculus»

Alas all the verifications do nothing to the fact: even with the file as it went out from the genomic calculator, and applying to it Likpato's code match, always the same enigmatic and terrifying text appears:

 

antakaralik lab lik2345 war virus NUM 23465 remember auweara

 

«Woooowwww! So this virus would have be really BUILT as a war weapon! But by who???? One thousand years ago it was definitively impossible!

Likpato: -Antakaralik, it was the Likpa's fortress, on the Haralik island. They had huge knowledge in biology, otherwise they could never have saved the six races from the effects of radioactivity, after the nuclear bombing by the Phallos.

Likpato: -And Auweara, it is the name of the island of the Paradise Likpas, completely incinerated by only one enormous souleyanne (thermonuclear bomb). A race that nobody will never save now.

Likpato: -The Paradise Likpas were peaceful, and the only race to no more have phallos. They were not involved into the conflict, so this aggression was certainly a shock.

Likpato: -And the virus may have be the avenging.

Likpato: -Anyway biological war is an horrible thing. How some Likpas could have do that? How could they do such an atrocious thing and not become Phallos?

Likpato: -I think the stake for them was to do this or to be completely exterminated. In four years the souleyannes of the Phallos destroyed nearby all Haralik. Imagine this: we see nothing, we hear nothing coming, and suddenly, in a blinding blazing flash, millions of friends and loves, hundreds of kilometres of landscapes, hills, houses, forests, all disappear. It was like that the souleyannes.

Likpato: -No matter, I would be frightened to have to account of this in front of the Great Likpa.

Likpato: -The souleyannes no more, I would not enjoy to bear this in my conscience.

Likpato: -But I do not understand: if there was tens of atom bombs which exploded, say two thousand years ago, we should still find radioactivity today? And plenty of genetic diseases? But we never found any trace of radioactive fallout on Likearth, and very few genetic diseases.

Likpato: -The History of Haralik is not coherent with what we know. It lasted for more than thirty thousand years when only eight thousand years ago the ocean was boiling, the air poisoned and any life impossible on Likearth.

Likpato: -However we can only see that Haralik really existed.

Likpato: -And the astrolikonomes, weren't they able to see what there is on the other side of our planet? They could find back Haralik, with their satelliks.

Likpato: -Thou wilst not believe me, but the photos of the satelliks are classified hight secret by the ULO.

Likpato: -Hey? But why?

Likpato: -It is said that the satelliks spotted strange things.

Likpato: -And how the virus could suddenly re-emerge centuries after? And why only this one?

Likpato: -Hey hide this, the Phallo scientists are coming. If these carambistoogned see this, they will be enraged. Useless to provoke them, if we can still avoid the war.

Likpato: -Thou believest their sweet talk? When the Phallos speak about peace, it is that they prepare an attack, they always did like that.

Likpato: -Quick put pinuts on the table, and thee close this screen.

Likpato: -Lik»

 

The Phallo scientist and his assistants enter. Rigid and dignified, they throw on the room despising looks.

«Likpatous ambience, I see. Right, you finished the swork?

-Lik. The data disk is here.

-Right. We are in a hurry, so we leave immediately».

They go out at once, while holding their noses.

«They could at least say thank thou, those delikpated.

Likpato: -They will end to justify the virus.

Likpato: -Not a word about what we found. I quickly go to warn the ULO command. They must see this. But I have an idea that they will not be as much surprised than us.»

 

 

 

 

 

Some months later, after the war (that the Phallos lost, as usual) these discoveries led to the first efficient cures for the antenna syndrome, the famous tritherapy: tickles, love and positive thinking, which for the first time made fall the deadly outcome under 50%. Bu the Phallos did not adopted it, as the survivors were becoming Likpas... This strange result was at the origin of the methods of forced likpatization of the phallos.
