    Me, Einstein!? I wish...

    Many things have transmission potential, but die due to the environment they
    find themselves in. This one died in my environment (my brain) as i refuse
    to pass it on.

    Also IMO memes don't have traits such as aggressive or irrational any more
    than they have a colour, as the meme is the behaviour, rather than a
    possessor of the behaviour.
