Sad that the little boy died. But WTF gives their son the name Ariola.

Always the fickle audience.

It's alright Subby, I still like you.

You're a sick man, subby...a sick man. Funny, but sick. :)

I thought it was funny, subby. You know that picture will end up in an unfortunate photos thread soon enough without context, and everyone will be laughing like jackals then.

Submitter deserves an award for making people laugh at that story. Humour exists in all situations.

Poor child, he's better off dead. And there he is, still smiling in the face of.....well, he'd probably never seen other boys naked at that age. So we can be glad that he died before he found out the awful truth.

FTFA .Although the amoeba is commonly found in soil and freshwater lakes,,... ...one wonders at any given time how many thousands/millions of species of microbes can actually kill us.

Like the saying goes in 1001 ways to die.. it's actually a miracle most of us make it through each day alive and well.

I am more amazed that people survive all the stupidity surrounding us.

Every day your life is in the hands of innumerable stupid people.

On Tuesday, state health officials closed the lake after a 9-year-old boy who swam there died, apparently from primary amoebic meningoencephalitis, a usually fatal brain infection for which there have been only 125 cases in the United States since 1924. Two years ago, a 7-year-old Stillwater girl died from it after swimming in the same lake.

Unpossible. FARK has taught me that this only happens in Florida.

Brick-House: - 1 on the headline subby and you should seek help.


That's rather tasteless. These amoebas are freshwater only. I don't think it would have happened if he'd been in the ocean watching seaweed.

So why you told subby to see kelp is beyond me.
 
2012-08-09 01:10:28 PM
Hopefully it will get bigger as he gets older. Oh he died?
 
2012-08-09 01:14:20 PM
that's a big penis

Damn you, subby for making me laugh while at the front desk. Never knew the reception area echoed so well.

I swam in that lake as a kid. Feel bad that someone's kid died just from going swimming. Did you even read the article, subby?

FTFA:

When Annie Bahneman died, Danila said, CDC scientists didn't think it possible there could be a case of the infection so far north in Minnesota. That, he added, has changed, with the organization now telling doctors they could be seeing cases anywhere in the United States.

A 2009 CDC paper raised the possibility of global climate change pushing the risk farther north.

"It is also critical to understand whether the number and geographic distribution of case-patients is changing over time and whether there is a potential for global climate change to play a role in increasing the risk of future N. fowleri infections,'' the paper said.

"We do think this might be a canary in a coal mine for global warming and increased water temperature,'' Danila said.


Uh-oh.

Oh, no... it's normal sized for me. On you, though, it would look like a fire hydrant.

Something similar happened to me when I was 6 or 7 after having swum in Salado Creek down in Texas. Of course I didn't have the parasite that swims up the nose and into the brain, I had what was apparently a cousin of it that infected my lungs. What's worse is that I was the kind of kid that would hide symptoms of illness because I'd feel bad about inconveniencing my parents or other grown ups so when I started breaking out in hives on my chest and stomach I didn't tell anyone. Then on the road trip back home to Virginia I started sobbing in the backseat because my insides started to burn. It felt like my ribs were burning and I told my mom it hurt. Dad floored it and we found some small town hospital in Tennessee that didn't even have an ER set up. I passed out as I was getting wheeled in but it was pretty bad and doctors didn't know what I had. It wasn't until weeks later when we got a call from the hospital that they were finally able to get a lab in Nashville to identify a parasite they found in some fluid in my lungs. Well, I was only at the hospital for a couple of days, and since they didn't know what it was they just threw a crap ton of antibiotics at me hoping something would work. Luckily it did and we were back on the road. Anyway, turns out that year there was a whole rash of children who had gotten sick from swimming in Salado and another water body that connected to it. For a period it was called the Palistine Flu (according to Dad) but I've never been able to find anything on google about it.

/dad insisted on continuing driving to a "real city"
//might not have made it if mom let him

News flash: the presence of one individual deadly microorganism suggests that there are probably more of the same in that location.

Well, all of them if you live in Australia.

Guess this one stowed away in someone's digestive tract.

(j/k, this thing's been around forever. There are lakes around Mt. St. Helens infested with this crap.)
