Kind of like how Peter Parker was unwittingly bitten by a spider, then by some mysterious twist of fate, avoided being hit by a car by jumping several floors up the side of a building and hung there -- JUST LIKE A SPIDER.
I haven't been infected by that particular virus yet but it's just a matter of time; I've certainly attracted all of the other ones. While I'm waiting, forums like this are an excellent alternative.
