    A patient suspected of suffering from the deadly Ebola virus left quarantine in Monrovia to search for food at a local market. The video shows him being chased and finally being caught by doctors. He is forced back into an ambulance while scared and angry crowds watched on.

    One local woman said care for Ebola patients was so inadequate they were not even being fed.

    “The patients are hungry, they are starving. No food, no water. The government need to do more,” she said.

    More than 1,550 people in four West African countries have died from the virus since the outbreak was first recorded in March.

    Liberia has the highest infection rate with around 700 deaths out of 1,327 suspected and confirmed cases.

    It's weird the way the same species can vary so dramatically

    What about this:

    Man in a crowded bar says to a bartender, "I can have sex with any woman here"

    "How's that?", says the bartender.

    Man answers, "Oh, I'm a rapist"

    I'm sorry.

    I guess I'm a bit of a misanthropist sometimes... especially when it comes to countries like Liberia. Ever saw this documentary? It's very hard to feel sorry for them.

    the world is discussing what to do about this situation. they should come to a decision any month now.

    we have to be culturally sensitive so first there will be sensitivity training, next we get a bunch of music groups to make a video...
