"This is my face. Please punch it. I understand. It has nothing to do with the content of my article, I know you didn't bother reading it but my face just needs punching. I mean just look at it. I might as well have 'Everlast' on my forehead. "

No, the problem with Ebola is this particular strain has a 70-90% fatality rate, there is no cure, it's fairly easy to transmit and you die bleeding from every orifice while your organs liquify. Oh, and there is no cure and it has a 70-90% fatality rate.

THAT'S the problem, you dumb sack of sh*t.

Back in the old days, I was working in an Intensive Care Unit when the Legionnaires Disease thing happened.  For you kids: The American Legion had a convention and a bunch of attendees suddenly and in the same conference center contracted a previously unknown respiratory illness that killed thirty out of 200 that caught the illness.  Nothing was known about infectious process, transmission, or treatment.  About all we knew was if you caught it, you were in big trouble.  And we didn't know how not to catch it.
They started hauling in a bunch of these sick guys and filled the ICU.  We put on as much isolation gear as was available and went to work.  I think everyone called their loved ones and made as much peace as possible on very short notice.  No one refused to step up and care for the sick.  We were as careful as possible but there were respiratory secretions spraying all over the place and we were pretty sure that was a very bad thing.  The unit was locked down and we weren't allowed to leave for awhile until the smart guys started figuring out what was going on with the disease.  No staff caught the disease but a lot of Legionnaires died before proper treatment was determined.  We were scared, no lie.

Humanity needs a fresh start.  I think something to wipe out 80-90% of humans is just what is needed.
