    Looks like between Pyro & Bella, the spectrum of responses has been covered pretty well.

    On a related note, sometime in the last few months, I read an article on a guy who was setting up an 'early detection' system for viruses that have the potential to cause pandemics (naturally - my 1st look around was unable to locate the article). IIRC, these mini-surveillance outposts were being installed in specific rural (very rural) tropical areas (like where ebola is hiding...)(apparently the combination of a hot, year-round environment and poor people eating under-cooked critters facilitates the jump between species). Upon reading the article, I was struck by how much sense it makes to try to get ahead of a severe outbreak. Thinking about that, one might think our government (who is fond of spending gobs of our $$ on all kinds of stuff) would support the initiative - nope. IIRC - the major support has come from Google (go figure!).

    Edit: did a few internet searches & found this article - which is not the one I read but contains a link to The Global Viral Forecasting Initiative which is apparently the organization which was the topic of the article I read ...

    Unrelated side comment: Lost Freddy - you really should consider modifying your diet of reading material (ie: more fact, less hyperbole).
    All the best,

    Ok, I tell this story frequently but...

    My dad is a computer guy, so I got my own computer really early on. The monitor that I used for the first... 4 years or so? was one of those really old CRTs. New CRTs are really nice- this thing was a clunker. On the bottom left of the screen read in fancy cursive "Low Radiation".

    Explains a lot, doesn't it?

    At work tonight our job handed out the "WORLD HEALTH ALERT: PANDEMIC PREPAREDNESS PACKET" with our paychecks. It has info on what items to stock up on incase the WHO closes stores and in the event people are quarantined to their homes. and other interesting / "panic inducing" reading material. Most of my co-workers can't read english so we just told them it was what to do if you're sick. The rest of us had a great time pointing and laughing at things in the packet.

    It also had some things to fill in so I filled mine in with all the right information incase I need to be taken care of...

    Emergency Contact: Pizza & Pasta Delivery Hotline
    Non-local Contact: John S Bell (inventor of Bell's theorem of non-local connection)
    Physician: Dr. Benway (William S Burroughs' evil doctor character)
    Pharmacy: --------'s house
    Hospital: Sacred Heart (Scrubs TV show)
    and so on.

    I only regret we didn't have to turn them in. I love screwing with the HR people and writing insane stuff in the lines provided.

    Haha, swords. That's funny stuff. HR people need to laugh a little sometimes.

    For a minute I was thinking, "Who's 'Dr. Flipside?'"
    Otherwise, a very level assessment. Nicely done Pyro.
