Bornova Zikkim Bar

Bornova Zikkim Bar

That's a cool name for a bar. Zikkim translates as "poison", and is used to refer to anything that is bad for you. It is the Turkish name of the evergreen shrub Nerium Oleander which can be toxic to animals and to humans.

While we're on the subject of toxicity, the most toxic substance known to humankind, natural or synthetic, is the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. One kilogram of Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxic protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium, is said to be enough to kill the entire human population. It is better known in its cosmetic form as Botox. What people will do to 'look beautiful' is mind-boggling.

A newly discovered form of Clostridium Botulinum, if weaponized, "has the potential to create destruction in almost a science-fiction fashion". Without a doubt, the global catastrophic risk is increasing by the day.
