use pestilence in a sentence.
I like measuring the old standbys: Pestilence, War, Famine, Death.
While this is an awesome development in a preventive approach, the best reactive approach to those purveyors of pestilence remains the mosquito bat - for disease prevention and fun!
Not quite the same as that - but I now live on a property that has a large amount of gardens to take care of (otherwise fire/snakes and general pestilence will ensue).
Because of the isolation, we don't have too many pestilence problems (gross oversimplification) and we want/need to keep it that way.
Some, I'm willing to believe, already feel very adamantly that mankind is a pestilence and should be prevented from spreading.
Beyond that, it's important to hold the discourse to a certain standard; we have many examples of the pestilence that befalls online communities where this isn't actively done.
Without innovators, we would all be dying in pestilence-ridden Stone Age villages.
