OtherLittleGuy: Old News Department.They put it up around the end of Season One of "Walking Dead"./Season 2 marathon in July//just concentrate on the mid-season cliffhanger and the last two episodes
Geotpf: I'm reminded of the plot of The Abyss where (IIRC) one of the main characters wrote a "First Contact with Aliens" manual by naming a bunch of random people he happened to know as those who should be on the first contact group because he thought it was just a silly governmental paycheck and that nobody would actually read the darn thing.

Dr Dreidel: // Bath Salt Zombies is my new punk band name
Dr Dreidel: I found out recently that the CDC doesn't recognize "chronic Lyme Disease" as a real thing. This, despite me now knowing 2 people afflicted with a chronic form of the disease (one who was just diagnosed after years of symptoms, after which HE asked to be tested for LD - the doc was clueless; the other has had it diagnosed for at least 3 years).So the CDC may not be 100% reliable.// Bath Salt Zombies is my new punk band name
Old enough to know better: From the CDC site:"...and as our own director, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack." So please log on, get a kit, make a plan, and be prepared!"Pretty much covers any explaination.
tira: Prep work for an apocalypse that's unlikely to happen
kroonermanblack: Most people include 'guns, swords, and offenses' as a zombie plan.I don't think in the next hurricane I want a bunch of mouthbreathing retards running around with loaded shotguns in thier hands just begging to use them.

melewen: WelldeadLink: Precautionary Principle at work: Better safe than sorry.That, and if you're prepared for zombies, then you'll be prepared for the more likely hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and/or earthquakes. If couching preparedness in zombie attacks is what it takes to get people planning, then I'm all for it.
IrateShadow: The CDC is in the business of preparedness. They don't really care what disaster you're preparing for, they just want you to have the proper shiat on hand in case something does happen.

Review of scientific literature by ID Society of America -- and a completely separate panel convened to re-review the guidelines -- agrees.http://www.idsociety.org/lyme/Lyme is common in many areas. Feeling generally lousy is also common. Put the two together and you have people convinced they have chronic Lyme. Doctors who give long-term antibiotics get to make money off of years and years of repeat visits. Doctors who do not believe in chronic Lyme actually make less money off of it.That doesn't mean the people who have been labeled with "chronic Lyme" don't feel lousy. They do. There is often a legitimate reason they feel lousy, and a nonpsychiatric reason.The danger of the diagnosis of chronic Lyme is that it distracts from what the real problems may be. Confounders I have personally diagnosed include- obstructive sleep apnea- honest-to-goodness clinical depression- life-threatening cancer (prostate and bile duct)aside from general crazinessPeople who are on long-term antibiotics for Lyme may suffer complications from the antibiotics also, including i.v. line infections and Clostridium difficile diarrhea.
