When Do We Panic?Follow

I'm guessing that, if you have ebola, you're not making the trek from west Africa to South/Central America and up through Mexico. Probably a hard sell to get the coyotes to transport your ebola ravaged body as well.

On the plus side (for the Tea Party folks), I guess a lot of brown people would contract ebola as a result.

Holy shit, Teaparty.org is fucking bonkers. Apparently Obama is importing Ebola (why does Ebola get capitalized?) patients to start a panic in the United States so he can seize our guns and put us all in FEMA camps. He's been purging the military of officers who resist the idea of disarming and relocating citizens.

So now you know.

Clearly the liberal media is using that site to make conservatives look like conspiracy theorists.

According to the Wikis,
Quote:
According to the rules for taxon naming established by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV), the name Zaire ebolavirus is always to be capitalized, italicized, and to be preceded by the word "species". The names of its members (Zaire ebolaviruses) are to be capitalized, are not italicized, and used without articles

Also, you're supposed to say "Ebola virus" each time, not just "Ebola".

Friggin' disease has more naming/usage rules than Adobe Photoshop Smiley: mad

It's pretty standard sciencey taxonomy stuff, italicizing, not capitalizing species names, etc. Though we've long given up on expecting those outside the ivory tower to understand. We're just happy if other realize things like 'Ebola' and 'Ecoli' aren't cousins or something. Smiley: rolleyes

On the other hand the whole viral classification and naming thing isn't as mature as for other organisms. It's not only newer but well wiki puts it best:

Quote:
Similar to the classification systems used for cellular organisms, virus classification is the subject of ongoing debate and proposals. This is mainly due to the pseudo-living nature of viruses, which is to say they are not living particles with some chemical characteristics similar to those of life. As such, they do not fit neatly into the established biological classification system in place for cellular organisms.
How do you determine where to draw the line and have a different viral 'species' when it's only kind of alive in the first place?

Good stuff.

Did they just start trying for a vaccine, or is it just coincidence that the vaccine is almost ready now that this epidemic is occurring?


It was still 50 white people away from mattering before, but now we've obviously moved closer to that threshold.

I kid. It's more the idea that it's idiotic to vaccinate large populations of people against a disease that kills, generally, 900 or so people a year, and mutates frequently. Basically the vaccine profile is like Flu, requiring a new one essentially every season, which is a lot of work. Without the Flu vaccine, flu would kill tens of millions more people (in no way an exaggeration), Ebola isn't "worth it" at the moment because they actual mortality rates are so low and transmission is relatively easy to curtail. Certainly compared to flu or the like.

I get that and the whole Genus species and all. I was referring more to "casual" usage such as for influenza or measles or rubella. There doesn't seem to be a 'common' name for (ahem) "Ebola virus".

No, clearly Elinda was saying she wants protection from disease when she has *** with arachnids. Do not judge Elinda. Smiley: mad

Hmm, well that's what I call an opportunity. What should we name it? Terrifying panic death disease maybe? Something cutesy like Ebby perhaps? Maybe "Democrat's secret weapon." There's so much potential.
