'Havana syndrome': US baffled after new cases in Europe

Four more US diplomats working in Geneva and Paris have fallen ill with a suspected neurological illness known as "Havana syndrome", US media report. Three diplomats became sick in the Swiss city and one in the French capital last summer, with some 200 people affected over five years.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the American government was working to get to the bottom of the mystery. There are fears an adversary may have targeted diplomats with microwaves. Mr Blinken said the issue had been raised with Russia but no determination had been made.

[...] A more innocent, but also unproven, theory is that those who got sick suffered from a mass condition brought on by some stressful underlying situation.

    Oh look at the Burger King benefits []. GED reimbursement, tuition reimbursement, health care, paid time off. I didn't realize what entitled bastards these people were. I'm definitely not going there any more and subsidizing these arrogant assholes.

    I suggest you reach out to your local Burger King employee and they can explain these "sick benefits" of which you are too stupid to understand. Perhaps if you made better life choices you wouldn't let your jealousy drive you to such hate. I pity you.
