The Germiest Spot on an Airplane Is Just Inches From Your Seat
Fri Sep 11, 2015
In reply to: phusi #2 It's not about "killing you", and there's no "pseudo-science" about swabbing surfaces and determining what types and how many germs grow there (my sister is a microbiologist). Who wants to get sick every time they fly?? I've been using Purell wipes to clean the tray tabl …

2 College Students Charged in Gang Rape on Florida Beach
Sat Apr 11, 2015
In reply to: @J1355 #47 Such a perfect example of rape culture as it exists in America... @Misscreant and @dave-2693993 keep fighting the good fight -- your comments are the perfect answers here, and throughout this thread, and the only way to continue to combat the mindset of p …
Bioethicist: Why Connecticut Teen Can't Say No to Chemo
Thu Jan 8, 2015
In reply to:Lauriloo #2.11 It would be prudent to keep in mind that pretty much everyone commenting here, including you (and me too), know little to nothing about this situation, and the people involved. All we've been presented with is one side of the story, and that being authored by a woman …
93-Year-Old Auschwitz Guard Oskar Groening to Stand Trial on 300,000 Counts
Tue Dec 16, 2014
In reply to: Mordsith_T #5.4 An admission from this man that he was a member of the SS is enough "hard evidence". If you've studied the SS's role in the camps, you'll understand that NO SS guard was innocent, nor were they merely "witnesses to atrocities".
Nurse Kaci Hickox says she won't obey Maine's Ebola quarantine: I won't be 'bullied by politicians'
Wed Oct 29, 2014
In reply to: imwhitewolf-6844564 #47.2 First, she's not past the time where she can pass the disease to others. The incubation period for Ebola is 21 days. Second, her civil rights end where others' begin. Asking her to comply with a 21-day HOME quarantine is not egregious and we must also take …
Outbreak Jitters: How Can We Trust the CDC on Ebola?
Wed Oct 1, 2014
In reply to: Fancy Pantz #5.2 Ebola Zaire has shown a 90% fatality rate in previous outbreaks (most notably, it's very first outbreak), but this outbreak (also Ebola Zaire) has shown about a 50% mortality rate, and up to 70% in certain areas. So, these doctors actually had at least a 30% chance …
Every Second Counts: New Ebola Report Predicts Huge Spike Without Action
Tue Sep 23, 2014
In reply to: ColoradoDude #2.2 Huh? Ebola hasn't "existed" in a colder northern climate only because it hasn't spread out of Africa before, not because of air temperature. It's close viral "cousin", Marburg, has caused infections in Germany, however. Considering that BSL4 labs keep viruses like …
Seeking Death: 'Suicide Tourism' to Switzerland Doubles
Wed Aug 20, 2014
In reply to: Flame77_7 #1.1 You said "Mental illness is the LEADING cause.." That is incorrect. "Neurologial disease" is not mental illness, as you seem to have interpreted it. Neurological diseases include such issues as multiple sclerosis, ALS, Alzheimer's, neuropathy, etc. These are diseases …
Johann 'Hans' Breyer Held on Auschwitz Death Camp Charges
Wed Jun 18, 2014
In reply to: JasperWall1 #1.3 You're comparing apples to oranges. Breyer was not a civilian.
