    Can't help but think we are entering into 'end of times' territory with this Ebola thing.

    IMHO, a virus such as Ebola is exactly what will cause the extinction of mankind. In the past, we could contain and quarantine the virus in very remote African villages, where it would quickly kill off 80 to 90 percent of the village population.

    Now, Ebola has reached more advanced African countries, and the quarantine doesn't seem possible at all. In fact, the United States has brought one, and bringing another, healthcare worker that has been infected back to the United States for treatment. For the first time in the history of mankind, the Ebola virus is in the United States.

    The world community is discussing this matter, but are they discussing this to the extent in which it needs to be discussed? Should the African Continent been quarantined with nothing coming or going? Should the US have brought the two infected healthcare workers back to the US?

    :bigthink

    The hubris of mankind knows no boundaries, until it's too late.

    It would be cool if it mutated into a zombie virus. Locked and loaded. (And by that I mean my doors are locked and I'm getting loaded)

    Yeah, bro. I'm smart like that, that I can just throw shit like that out there.

    You know, as depressing as life can be sometimes for everyone, at least you people have had the knowledge that you lived in the same era as me. You people can now sort of appreciate those that interacted with Michalangelo, Galileo, and Da Vinci.

    What a treat I am for you all. :smile:

    we need to start bowing like the japs. i like a good handshake, but i'll give it up in this new reality. open borders can lead to serious health problems. just axe the native americans.

    if you don't like the bowing thing, obama seems to love it, blowing kisses would work too.

    just say no to ebola!
    and ebonics!
