Challenge # 1 - Design a virus

Challenge # 1 was to design your own virus.  Some used the challenge as a chance to imagine a pleasanter world, others to show the pain of the current one.  Requirements were to use square block(s), 5 x 5 ", and black and white, with one color optional.  Of course, the restrictions themselves were optional, as you can see.
