Bit'O'Gristle: Nothing like a nice visit from your friendly hemorrhagic fever that turns your organs to soup and then jumps to the next host. Odd...if you think about it. A virus, that by it's nature, destroys the host that allows it to reproduce and live. Not too smart, but definitely deadly.


You have summarized my dating life.

Bit'O'Gristle: Oh yes, you could be married to my ex wife. I wouldnt wish that on anyone. You're better off with the ebola lip lock.


One's a disease that utterly destroys you from the inside out until you wish for death, and the other is an African virus?

"The Hot Zone" is a very good book worth reading on this subject,


I was more thinking "Tom Clancy":
This Ebola outbreak is surely connected to the passengers with stolen passports on the missing Malaysian plane and both are linked to Russia stirring up shiat in Ukraine after an ex-NSA spy has defected to Moscow and the release of chemical weapon's in the Middle East by Russia's partner Syria. And it's certainly not a coincidence that Crimea started directly after Russia had the Olympics at another blacksea port.
I'm sure Jack Ryan is already hard at work figuring out what's behind all this.

Great Justice:

Even so, I'll admit my post is quite alarmist, and the chances of dying in a terrorist attack are extremely less likely than death by heart disease or cancer for most westerners.  The terrorists could probably kill far more of us if they put their efforts into developing some sort of salty chocolate deep fried sugar cubes on a stick to mass market instead.

It sounds like you're talking about weaponized food. Unfortunately, there are temporary labs all over the US regularly working on such WMDs. They're called "State Fairs"

Wicked Chinchilla: ElLoco: Was just playing Plague, Inc. a bit ago on android. Getting a kick, etc.

Started my last one in Egypt. They're always ripe for a bacterial infection with the initial points in airborne/waterborne transmission.

Egypt is my favorite starting point.  Two ports, an airport, and several land borders with different climes.  Its damned bloody ideal.


I like to start in Greenland.  Takes a lot longer to go worldwide, but seriously!  Who expects a dangerous pathogen from Greenland?  Unemployed giants, maybe, but not world-destroying pathogens.

bigpeeler: Africa. The world's petri dish.


Well, that's because it's where we all come from. Every microbe and parasite has had a million years to figure out humans.

Anybody know what the reserve population is for Ebola? I don't want to find out it's the african swallow. Bad enough they're always dragging coconuts with them.

WhyteRaven74: wildcardjack: Always gets me that the numbers are so low. It must present symptoms at almost the same time as it becomes contagious.

It's passed on by contact with bodily fluids. Given the symptoms, not going to have a lot of people making contact with an infected person.

skinink: the disease is fatal

The mortality outbreak varies pretty widely based on the outbreak. The worst have been around 95% and the best have been, if I remember right, around 60%. The variation could mean a few things, or it could mean nothing other than just random luck.

BTW anyone up for a Marburg or dengue outbreak? How about Lassa?


How about no? Does no work for you?
