Well, that explains Texan's political views.

The history of this fourth patient, including extensive travel to Europe and the Middle East, supports the likelihood that infection occurred outside the United States.

Do you want a translation, if so to which language?

Or are you fishing for an easy to read explanation?

Subby has no reading comprehension. TFA explains the patient most likely contracted it outside the US.

This is why I can't give blood. I lived in Europe for 5 years during the late 80's and early 90's.

Is it still funny to make fun of the gays for being gay? I thought that was like making fun of black people for having dark skin.

My wife can't give blood for the same reason. You'd think she would have had some manifestation of the disease by now if she had contracted it. How long does it take for the prions to turn your brain to Swiss cheese anyway?

I lived in Europe in the early 80s.  Only 18 months, but it was on an American Army post.  At the time, all the beef products purchased for the U.S. Army in Germany came from the U.K. I knew I couldn't donate blood, but recently realized I also can't donate organs or tissue.  I even had the organ donor permission removed from my driver's license on the last renewal.

Just waiting for my first Mad Cow Disease symptoms.

As long as fifty years, according to some things I've read about it.

No, I think they were just pointing out that the headline was a bit misleading. I expected to see a warning about this originating in Texas.

The joke works better if Haiti actually were on the excluded list like I thought it was.

It's too late to substitute in Nigeria, which is banned.

Prions

They cannot be killed by any reasonable process

You cannot reason with them

They can hide undetected, for decades... both in hosts and environment

And they want your brains

Yeah, this was keeping me from panicking, as there are still zero cases confirmed as having originated in the US. Then I remembered that I spent a few days in England in the 80s, and definitely ate beef.

So my odds of getting this are tiny, but greater than zero.

Same here, i.e. 5 years plus in Europe.
