I did read the article on the NYT. However I was not aware that it's not contagious until symptoms set in. But still -- you completely passed up my my point which was WHY THE FUCK AREN'T WE ENFORCING MANDATORY QUARANTINE UNTIL THE WINDOW PASSES? I know-- the horror of using common sense and not simply using the "honor system" when dealing with a Biosafety Level 4 contagion is simply outlandish.

Medical Screener: So I see you've been treating people infected with the Ebola virus Dr. Ebola; Yup Medical Screener: Are you infected? Dr. Ebola: Nope Medical Screener: Ok, ok enjoy your subway ride back to Manhattan. If this is how we're going to manage this outbreak, we are completely screwed. And it's likely already too late. That Dr took a few subway rides and likely infected at least a couple dozen people in the process. Thats more than enough to start a substantial outbreak around the US and likely the entire planet.

It's what we commonly refer to as a German Shepherd -- but after WWI, the notion of "German" anything was so reviled that they started calling German Shepherds Alsatians. It was this bias, hatred and on-going punitive measures against Germany post WWI that helped bring Hitler to power. With that in mind, I can only imagine what global menace shall be unleashed after renaming French Fries to Freedom Fries.

FFS -- what a crock of shit. I personally don't recommend Ruby to clients any more in favor of NodeJS, but there's still plenty of startups going with Ruby. A hell of a lot more than Perl. But with that said, if it were up to me I'd happily see Perl and PHP die. While Perl is definitely a dying language, PHP seems to be holding on -- with nasty frameworks like Yii (which feature views where anything goes) gaining popularity.

Siri, as usual was giving me confusing and last second directions saying "Turn Left", in a very confusing series of intersections in Oakland where it looked like she was wrong (and was of course). However, while looking around trying to read street signs, the light turned red just as I got to the intersection, and I was still at about 40mph, after having just got off the Freeway. So, I figured it would be safer to run the light than slam on the brakes and risk stopping in the middle of the intersection. Immediately I saw flashing red lights, I pulled over and apologized to the CHP Officer while handing him my papers, explaining the situation with Siri and the light etc and you know what? He came back, handed me back my papers and said he decided to give me a break on the ticket and let me go. Thanks Ponch! Seems the California Highway Patrol is all to familiar with how much a distraction Siri can be. And what the fuck is up with her 10 mile warning! Two mile I can understand, but 10? Fucking annoying.

I have not yet begun to byte!
