So now they want "wings?" Isn't that what the green weed stuff is for? [grin]

Mama, I don't know what kind of weed you're talking about, but if it gives you wings, I'll take some!

Don't know what this RB stuff is, never looked at it, but my youngest son used to drink some crap called "Jolt" or something like that. Insane amount of caffeine in it.  He used to drink that rather than sleep all too often...  One day he walked in and I offered him a bandage so he could hold his eyes in. Looked like they were about to pop out of his head. Terrible headache. Silly people.

Why not just stay off public transportation for the duration of this? Why would anyone get on an airplane knowing the risks? Why aren't airlines refusing to fly into these places?  And really, ebola isn't the only possibility for this person's death anyway. He may have been poisoned, for all we know.

Actually, I think I read that there was no ebola problem in Nigeria. And that's really strange if you think about it. This whole thing is nutty.

In more Ebola news:

http://nypost.com/2014/10/16/alarm-after-vomiting-passenger-dies-on-flight-from-nigeria-to-jfk/

Dude flies from Nigeria to Mordor on the Potomac, vomits repeatedly into his seat and dies mid-flight.

CDC arrives and in minutes after a cursory inspection.... "nope, no Ebola here.  Move along people, move along."



I dunno, I'm not an infectious disease expert, but does EVERYONE who dies from Ebola look like a cast extra from 28 Days Later?  Or can it be more benign and still lethal?  And can you tell after observation with the mark-1 eyeball and then release 100+ potential infectious vectors into contact with thousands more people in the middle of one of the biggest travel hubs in the world?

Not that I'm advocating in favor of government detention... but when government says it has the authority and wisdom to detain due to contagion, and they don't even do it for an hour or two to run a proper lab sample, or take a freakin' blood sample to a boring old microscope?  I understand the Ebola virus is rather large and distinct-looking, and easily seen in a microscope... I had a microscope as a kid, I'm sure a CDC response team must have one in their kit; it's a simple tool and very portable.

Yay, government!  You go, guys!  Bang-up job.

Chest bump for government:






And yet I worry also, in another direction.  Government is seeing that the public doesn't want any more wars.  Doesn't want many of its programs.  Doesn't want more of its lies.  And isn't scared of the newest bugaboo, ISIS.  So, it's time for a new boogeyman that we are all supposed to be afraid of, the Plague.  Only checkpoints and searches and detentions and renditions will save us.

So we get deliberate stoooooopid failures like this, that introduce more infection vectors.  Until we have hundreds of confirmed cases, and thousands of new carriers.  Then we get VIPR teams catching sick drivers on the Interstates, and mandatory blood samples for international flights, and elimination of amateur private flight with no health screening (so we might as well screen for everything else as well, after all we're the government and we're here to help!).  And mandatory Ebola-free cards we have to carry around in public, only authorized to be distributed by medical facilities that play ball with internetworked EHR systems that report all health conditions to the government.  Cash-only, non-HIPAA medical provider cleared you of Ebola?  So sorry, he's not authorized to give you an interzone transport card.

Quote from the article...

The Simpsons predicted it
We reported yesterday how some internet conspiracy theorists,claim the world famous TV series predicted the Ebola crisis back in a 1997 episode in which Marge tries to coax a sick Bart out of bed She suggests he reads a book before producing one entitled 'Curious George and the Ebola Virus'.

I remember that episode. I love the Simpsons.

If you drank RB between 2002 and 2014, you are entitled to this:

No one has said it yet here but the zombie analog is mighty disturbing for spread of disease here.

Lots of people have said it... on all sorts of venues.

Goes back to the me generation and people who simply do not give a shit about anyone else other than themselves.

And that doesn't even cover it.  If she were rationally concerned about even just herself, she would have taken the known and totally doable precautions necessary to prevent becoming infected. It's all about integrity and personal responsibility... and that lack is not confined to any one generation.

I would not give her the self-denial out considering she is a medical professional.  She was aware enough to call CDC and inform them of her fever prior to the flight.  I would venture if she was handing out medical advice it would have been, "Do not fly".  Goes back to the me generation and people who simply do not give a shit about anyone else other than themselves.
