FatherDale: Yeah, sorry, but he isn't the only one who feels that way. The magical thinking, the instant butthurt over the smallest things, and the sheer "I hate you because you're not like me" just works your nerves after a while.

Wait, were we talking about Arabs or teabaggers?


It works both ways.
There were lots of Muslims I worked with briefly in Afghanistan who got instantly butthurt when they realized I wouldn't change stop [insert random cultural minutiae here].  Just like the teabaggers, really.
Sometimes I think those guys should all get together and go bowling.

ManifestDestiny: Dirty J1: Haha good. Lets hope it spreads to all the Middle East and just wipes out all them mud hut dwelling, dirt farming camel jockey bomb fetishists. Maybe I'm a little racist against them but what can I say? They've tried to kill me several times while i was over there trying to HELP them.

Well, aren't you just a class act.

ComaToast: wildcardjack: I'm not up on their schedule, when is that thing where millions go to Mecca and hang out for a few days?

Spring Break. You should see the women. Nobody else can...


Actually, Saudi social code offers many more dress options for women than men during the Hajj. There is a specific prohibition against women covering their face while making Hajj.

Most going on the Hajj also visit Medina too. There is and has been for years a great deal of concern over disease epidemiology on Hajj. Most of the security officers will wear masks when deployed around lots of people, and the sanitation efforts are legendary. They're pretty prepared for Hajj--they have an entire ministry of Hajj is that is active around the clock 25/8 every day of the year preparing and handing Hajj.

If 75% of the camels have had MERS, maybe you ought to think about looking into a vaccine.

"He also said it may be possible to develop a vaccine to prevent the disease in camels. But he said creating a vaccine for people would not make sense, given that so far, MERS is rare..."


Heck, they aren't even interested in vaccinating the farkin camels, let alone worrying about humans.
Meh,  it's rare,  let those people die.
