Your further along than me. Let's try this:

Go I.... Go IR......Go IR....ELAND !  Sorry, that's as close as I can get.

@DS117 - It was from the 1950"s antimated Paper Mate pen TV commercials. You might enjoy this link: http://www.digitalmediatree.com/schwarz/comment/30596/

Addendum - A downvote for this?  I know the rule is to never comment on downvotes, but this may be the funniest thing I've seen all day. Lol.

@KMP10 - You can disagree with someone's opinion here (whether a reader, moderator, contibutor or staff) without name calling. For example, I may think you're an asshat for denigrating DJ for his opinion, but I would never express that to you. That would be rude.

Hey BamaBuckNut - Just a thought. Your reply might be better off as a forum of it's own. It's skating close to the "3rd rails" we don't touch here (politics, religion, and UM ever being competative again).

P.S.  Thank you for repping the Scarlet & Gray in enemy territory!

Thanks for weighing in DrTom!

Not an M.D. here, so if my hypothetical scenario  is faulty I'd be very interested in hearing from you.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

Good points, Scott. I didn't mean to imply that the 100 on the plane were all at risk. I was thinking of the 1 -2 people who could have hypothetically come into contact with her body fluids (ie - washroom) and then when they get sick 2 weeks later (let's say while  living in Minnesota) and all the people they come in contact with - family & health care providers - never thinking they could be dealing with Ebola. That's where the real risk from this woman on the plane comes from.

Re-posting this from higher in the body of this thread (sorry if that annoys anyone) -

Ever used a toilet on an airplane that just might have been used by a person before you? Think about someone with Ebola in there before you. The toilet flush aerosolizes the diarrhea in the toilet just before you. Minute particles settle on the toilet seat, on the counter, on the toilet paper roll. That person coughs or retches, tries to cover their mouth, gets vomit or saliva on their hand, and grabs the faucet BEFORE they wash their hands. You walk in and think you are doing the right thing washing your hands - grab the infected faucet handle to turn it off and get the infected body fluid on your hand. Go back to your seat to eat your meal using that same hand.

Let me give you a veterinary analogy, since parvovirus in dogs & Ebola are both intestinal viruses. ONE GRAM of diarrhea from a parvovirus infected dog could be used to literally infect HUNDREDS of dogs. A single thimbleful of PED virus is considered to be enough to infect every single hog in America. I have no proof, but I'll bet you the same rules apply.

And now the CDC says that they're not 100% sure if it can be airborne from a cough from someone retching and then being breathed in by another person.

And, on a lighter note, if you are male and survive Ebola, don't have unprotected sex for 4 months - the virus can live in semen for up to 90 - 120 days.

@ William - What we may actually be seeing could be a recent mutation of a virus that was slow to spread (around since the 1920's) and has now mutated to a form that can spread aggressively.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

@ LaBuckeye - True. A virus that kills it's host has to be easily & quickly spread to it's next victim. A virus that has mutated over the years and "learned to live with it's host" does not have to spread quickly and easily (think herpesvirus).
