Well, judging by the last week, at least we know a minor breakdown in law will be quickly and peacefully dealt with in the United States.

I have to say that The Last Ship has been strangely topical what with the global blood-leaky disease and conflict with the Russians.

I just hope I can finish my shows on Netflix and the Steven King novel I'm reading before it gets here. It would suck to die with unfinished business.

You know what we should do? We should bring that shiat over here to the North America.

We're long overdue for a natural culling of the herd. If that means that I bite the big one, too -- meh. Nature's a vindictive biatch. We have to play by her rules.

"Remember ecmoRandomnumbers from way back in the day?"
"Yeah, I think I do. I wonder whatever happened to him."
"I'm pretty sure he died in The Plague."
"Wow, those were scary times, weren't they?"
"Yeah, but it sure is nice having all this extra room to move around in on the planet now."

I'm on the edge with that show. I almost gave up after the first episode when the ship took multiple missile hits without any evidence of damage later. At this point I think the character of Tex is the only thing keeping me watching.

Won't really do much, here. It will kill a bunch of people in the third world, from time to time, though - unless we find some kind of cure for it.
It'll be a hoot if the cure turns out to come from tobacco, like the serum they treated those two Americans with.

I think the missiles were defeated by chaff and the CIWS. What keeps pissing me off is they keep sending the captain on away missions. Da fuq. And how did the people get back from that kamikaze boat run against the Russians?

Make sure the Steven King novel is abridged, otherwise you'll never finish it.

And if anyone would know about misjudging the size of problems, it's WHO. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go sell tamiflu to some rubes.

IANA geneticist but I understood tobacco was particularly useful for rapid prototyping of genetic modifications - but scaled up production would be done in something else.

Shakin_Haitian: Protip: don't go around getting the blood of diseased people all over you.


That's kind of the scary part of this. The two Americans that picked up Ebola were wearing protective gear, and going through the proper decontamination processes when dealing with the victims. Neither one of them know how they managed to be exposed to the virus.

They were working basically in tents out in a field with suits that are taped shut. People make mistakes. Don't tape up so tight one day, and you've got miniscule amounts of blood reaching you.

It is really, really easy, when you are fatigued, exhausted and really warm from a contamination suit, to have a momentary lapse in judgement.

And as someone who works with doctors, even if they say they did something, it doesn't mean they did.

..and then she looked at me with those bloodshot eyes, and said:

Here's something, here's something you ain't never going to get... over.
 
2014-08-15 08:28:51 AM  
The US doesn't have to worry about Ebola. Brooklyn hipsters declared Ebola "so 1994", which means that it'll never really catch on here. Sure, some pockets of emo kids will latch onto it because bleeding from your eyeballs is "hella tight" but Middle America will never go for it.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost:  Neither one of them know how they managed to be exposed to the virus.


Where have they stated this?  They worked closely with dozens of dying patients.  I'm pretty sure they know how they managed to be exposed.

I held the hands of countless individuals as this terrible disease took their lives away from them. I witnessed the horror firsthand, and I can still remember every face and name.

Bah. There's plenty of room in the states if you don't choose to live in an overcrowded hellhole.

If your job is dependent on you living in overcrowded conditions, don't expect that job to exist when half the population dies

It sort of has the same problem Star Trek had there - the senior bridge staff are your main characters, so people want to see them doing stuff even if it doesn't necessarily make sense that they'd be the ones doing it.

Only on the politics tab is any expression of how we need to work to ensure possible Ebola carriers don't illegally cross into our borders mean that you believe Nigerians can teleport around the world and Liberians can leap across the ocean instead of just buying a plane ticket to somewhere with lax security checkpoints.

But as the article states, hardly anyone has Ebola and nobody should show any concern...
 
2014-08-15 08:46:30 AM  
It'll be interesting (in a horrible sort of way) to see how Ebola interacts with mammals that exist in the New World. What they will have to contribute...?

First Ebola comes out. Then there's Ebola+, then Ebola v2.0.

...It's a work in progress.

Good thing there's NO WAY someone who is infected could cross our southern border undetected.

Good thing all of the more than one million people who enter the US legally EVERY DAY are screened for infectious diseases... oh, wait...

jehovahs witness protection: Good thing there's NO WAY someone who is infected could cross our southern border undetected.


Yeah, cause instead of worrying about someone infected simply flying in legally and undetected, the scenario we should be worried about is the most unlikely one presented by fear mongering idiots where ebola infected people are walking across the desert for some reason to come to the US.

Let me guess, you believe that we have found Muslim prayer rugs in the desert too.
 
2014-08-15 09:32:19 AM  
So which is it, Mr. Boget et. al.? Do you believe there is some kind of disease screening at US points of entry (hint: there isn't) or do you think that only dirty illegals carry diseases?
