The virus seems to affect higher brain functions, changing speech and causing the victim to spurt out phrases such as "Governor! My wheels have gone sideways!" "WA-HEELS!" "VA-HE-ICLE" and "SILENCE THINNY!" along with distinguished sounds that are reminiscent of fog horns. The discoverers of this severe mental disease, Brad, Max and Nick intentionally exposed themselves to the strain and now suffer long term effects. The subject of Georgelaneogen is, indeed, taboo. The public don't understand the severity of the issue and when an infected human ventures outside, he or she may be met with severe social rejection.
There is no known cure, although Scientists have been trying to find one that can be used on a wide scale.
The name comes from where the disease originates from, a street called George Lane in the North West of England. There is a large house in which The Big Three (Brad, Max, Nick) experimented on the virus. Exposing to several animals. It seemed to have no effect, and the animal that had been infected simply barked in an abnormal tone and moved on.
Intent on learning more about this devastating virus, The Big Three (as breifly stated above) exposed themselves to the virus under a prolonged timetable in "The Office". The high concentrations of the virus, which is indeed transferrable by air and blood, seem to have bonded with the molecular structure of the air in the office. This had an effect which means the virus is forever present within that vicinity and people who venture inside the depths of the room will begin feeling the affects of the virus. Here's a detailed step-by-step process of the virus, and what it does:
Step 1 - The virus is breathed in and the molecules reach the brain. Once there, they briefly alter the chemical makeup of the brain, targeting the the Speech Control and Regulation Center.
Step 2 - The first symptoms appear, as the virus takes over the subjects larynx. Extreme cases of randomness occur, with the subject saying things which either make no sense or simply scare other people shitless:
"I DO LIKE MY GOVENORS BAKED!"
"WOULD YOU LIKE A SMALL ARABIAN MONKEY-SAUSAGE TO CARESS YOUR IRIS WITH A SMALL WOODEN SPOON WHILE TOUCHING YOUR LONG LOST PIRATE BROTHER IN NAUGHTY PLACES. CARE FOR A STEAK, CHEDDAR FACE?"
Step 3 - The pathogen continues its tour of the brain, reaching the muscle control center of the brain. The subject then feels the urge to prance around in an unorganised fashion with the tendency of leaving his or her mouth wide open. It reminds one of a fucked up turkish dance.
Step 4 - The virus then makes its way to the Language center of the brain, causing the subject to almost fully lose the ability to speak their native language: English. Usually, in an attempt to mask their utter failure at english, they end with an influx of spasm sounds. Also, "FUCK IT!" is normally shouted when the subject gives up speaking.
If prolonged exposure is maintained, the above steps may appear at any interval for no apparent reason.
Nick: What the balls!
Brad: Oh god... Georgelaneogen anyone?
