Why is it dumb? A modern phone has a better CPU than the first CPUs that was running Windows NT Kernel. an iPad 4 is faster than a Cray X/MP!
You are joking, right? Lumias a pretty nice phones actually
Still have a Minolta Autocord with Agfa Scala (you can still develop it in Germany) Medium format Roll Film.
I shoot Digital too, but occasionally break out one of the old commiecameras.
My mom has one of those. She hates cellphones, she hates computers do not use tech but she can Morse at 15 WPM. Even has her Ham license.
I know one of those with a PhD from Harvard.

One example of too-much-integration I have. My edge router (Deutsche Telekom, Germany, some Fritzbox variant) has integrated modem, WAP and switch. Despite the fact that my entire house is wired with CAT6 and I have a patch panel and rack in the cellar my WAP/Router/Switch box is physically constrained by the point the phone line comes into the house, and by the room's geometry. The problem is that, from there, the WiFi reception is very spotty in some places, most notably my favourite bench in the kitchen where I like to browse the days news on my iPad early in the morning with coffee before the kids wake up.
Since I can't split the devices I had to buy another WAP to get reasonable reception in the kitchen cause that is a major use-case for me.
The Expendables is hardly art and definitely not science

A biocontainment ward in a hospital DOES have a special toilet, and they DO disinfect basically everything the whole time, up to incinerating things.
One of the prime reasons medical care is so expensive is that you can't re-use lots of things, you have to destroy them.
They haven't SEEN Ebola, they are actively developing a vaccine WITH Ebola. Which is good.
The US already is studying Ebola and Marburg in properly equipped research labs, and have been for many years. Where do you think the vaccine comes from? A lab in the Congo?
The fact that there are already Ebola Viruses in several labs in the US for research purposes and that nobody has died is not mentioned here but...hey this is
The really scary thing is that the Soviet Biopweapons program did exactly this with Marburg, a close cousin of Ebola.
Did you consider getting psychiatric treatment for your paranoia?
