It was a disease that ws incubated in air conditioner cooling troughs. It lived in something called protozoa. When these portozoa died they were then somehow blow away by the A/C system. People then breathed them in and became infected. Died within 24-48 hours. Dude I so think my car has pontiac disease right now. STUPID A/C.
