Overnight Open Thread (25 Oct 2014)

Sorry. While admirable that Kaci Hickox went to West Africa to help treat Ebola victims, I don't feel bad that she has to be quarantined. She can blame her fellow medical professionals for not quite getting what voluntary quarantine requires. Update: Nurse Hickox a CDC employee?

Speaking of quarantines that should've happened, CDC admits disease imported as states data reveal illegal immigrant links.

Perhaps the White House doesn't want Americans to know that out of over 70,000 illegal immigrant children who crossed into the U.S. almost 48,000 came from Honduras, Guatemala and Salvador. In these countries measles and the EV-D68 virus are quite common. If we include these children's family and friends, not listed an "unaccompanied," over a quarter of a million people from Central and South America have entered the U.S. illegally this year.

From 1970 to 2005 there were only 26 cases of EV-D68 ever reported in America. The number in 2014 is approaching 1,000 cases, with about 10 percent of those cases known to be causing a polio-type virus that has left children crippled.


Energy

Just like he promised. Skyrocketing energy prices. Hopefully winter won't be as cold as forecast.

Gun Skillz

I'd stay off this guys lawn.

Manhood Initiation

How's this for a manhood initiation? A tribe in the Amazon forest has you put your hand into a glove that has bullet ants.

These ants look like black, wingless wasps and their length can range between half-an-inch to an inch. The scarier thing about this bullet ant's sting is the toxins, neurotoxin and poneratoxin, which freeze the transmission of information by the nerve cells. The venom also causes uncontrollable shaking and throbbing pain that'll last for days. The scariest is, the Maw boys don't need to get stung only once but many times more, from months to years.

Rage Against The Machine

Orchestral version of Killing In The Name.

Candy

Watch out for the pot Halloween candy. So where's all the outrage that it is being marketed for kids like with e-cigs?
