    Myrrha is a 1901 cantata for soprano, tenor, baritone, and orchestra. In it, Myrrha seduces her father on a whim and turns into a tree, then gives birth to a smaller tree... not the most scientifically sound story, but we'll take it!

    Listeria is a bacterial infection causing flu-like symptoms; about 260 people die from this disease annually. Yuck!

    Ciguateria, or fish poisoning, is caused by eating seafood infected with Gambierdiscus toxicus microalgae and has no cure. Guess they're sleeping with the fishes now!

    Alcyone is a cantata by Ravel for soprano, alto, tenor, and orchestra. Alycone really enjoyed calling her husband Zeus, which angered the actual god enough to kill the husband - some kinks just need to be shamed.

    Dengue is a viral infection transmitted by mosquitos with no effective treatment. Time to work on those reflexes!

    Semiramis is a partially lost cantata by Ravel for soprano, mixed choir, and orchestra. Semiramis had two husbands and temporarily ruled Assyria, but that wasn't reason enough for Ravel's groupies to preserve the entire cantata.

    You guessed it (or maybe not) - Callirhoe is yet another Ravel cantata! During her life, Callirhoe married Medusa's son and was also a nymph, but to Ravel, she was nothing more than a preparatory exercise for the 1900 Prix de Rome.

    Yersinia literally is what caused the Bubomic Plague, and guess what? It's not dead yet! RIP all of us.

    Although the Giardiasis-causing protozoan may look happy, its hosts definitely aren't! Giardiasis is the most common intestinal parasite in the United States.

    Scarbo is the third movement of Ravel's piano cycle Gaspard de la nuit. Based on a poem of the same name by Aloysius Bertrand, it depicts a goblin harassing the sleeping narrator in the dead of night. What a fiesty guy!

    Feria is the last movement of Ravel's Rapsodie espagnole for orchestra. The portrayed carnival-like atmosphere has hints of nostalgia, but who knows why? Maybe Ravel, but he's dead.

    Like Ciguatera, Vibriosis is a seafood-based parasitic infection, although it can also be transmitted just by being exposed to infected salt water. Looks like you're never going in the ocean again!
