    Steve wondered why the simian flu doesn’t kill apes as well as humans. I haven’t seen RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES since its debut, but the way I’m remembering it, the “simian flu” was actually a genetically engineered virus meant to cure Alzheimer’s, and intended to be administered through aerosol. It was successful in heightening the intelligence of apes — Caesar was the first test subject — but would eventually kill humans. That doesn’t completely explain why the effect was different on two species, but close enough.
