It's because you stopped sending your ten cents a day and got that coffee instead, you selfish cock.

Corpses are not the same as zombies, subby.

And it's amoebas. All the other weird brain diseases in Africa are amoebas. This is just another.

Children having seizures from some sort of disease doesn't equal the zombie apocalypse,subby. Poor kids though,seizures are terrible and if you've never seen a tonic-clonic seizure it will scare the hell out of you.

The problem with Africa is it's basically a big Petrie dish and there's no telling what may come festering out of there next. And if anyone has any idea how we can bring the place up to current medical standard without a full scale invasion, I'd really like to know.

Close, the CDC is seeing a correlation between nodding syndrome and Onchocerciasis parasitic infection. It's Nasty worm that causes a variety of problems including river blindness and is spread by black fly bites.
It might be a combination of severe malnutrition and worm infection; if the infected has nothing for the worms to feed on in their blood they'll migrate to where the food is, the Brain.

geoduck42: The article say the local doctors have tried that, but they don't help much.


That's just depressing because the more seizures these kids have the more brain damage they'll get. If they go into staticus epilepticus they'll die if the meds aren't doing anything. A constant seizure,essentially was SE is, isn't compatible with life.
 
2012-03-26 03:51:22 AM  
That sounds pretty damned awful. I may have missed it, but was there anything about how fast this is spreading, or is it something that is strictly localized? If it's only hitting children, I suppose that would suppress the spread. Conjecturing...

Where are you getting cups of coffee for ten cents? I got like $50 in change, and no need to sleep for a week.

The official Ugandan Minister of Health claimed that you can pray away HIV/AIDS, so I'm sure this will all be over in a couple of rosaries as long as you don't eat da poo poo.

China sent us contaminated wallboard, lead paint toys and dog food that was poisoned so if they got a food shipment from China i would be very suspicious.

Yeah, what a shiatty sensationalistic headline. I'm pretty sure I've seen this on another website like a week ago.

It's not subby's fault so much as the article's writer.
 
2012-03-26 04:08:25 AM  
Uganda eh? I'm blaming this on Invisible Children.

FTFA: First the victims become restless, can't concentrate. They say they have trouble thinking. Then comes the nodding, an uncontrollable dipping of the head that presages the disease's debilitating epilepsy-like seizures.

I don't know. Sounds like what every kid at my school experienced in Mr. Woodrow's Civics class.

Currently, Ugandan government officials say that they are doing everything they can to fight the epidemic.

Yeah, I imagine they make poor child soldiers.

Install Russian dictators and german officials in all the countries.

Then wait 2-3 generations and slowly introduce them to democracy.
