Oh, We will send troops in. They would have been there had not Obama pulled them out. The blackwater thing. Mercenaries should never be employed in a war zone. And the US had a lot of them. I think it was a sweetheart deal for some political payback that back fired.

But of course you can't be a REAL scifi fan unless you were there in 1953 following Jet Morgan and Journey into Space on the radio! :-)

Kinda hard when a lot of us were not even born back then in them dark ages.

LOL. Well I was born in 52. We never had a TV set until 57. I think the screen was the same size as a kidle. Black and white only. Then in 1962 my grandfather bought a color TV. It was a 21 inch. The first color show I ever saw was the wizard of Ozz. At my house we didnt get a color TV untill 1969. Thats when we got my grandfathers old tv set. I never saw Star Trek in color.
In 1976 I bought an RCA 25" color TV it was like furniture. Cost me my income tax refund, But i had that TV until 1983.
No, Im not knocking you young folk, But I could still get off my ass and change a channel by hand if I had to, Or put a tape in a VHS machine. Or play a record on a turntable, Or even thread a tape on a reel to reel.
But to be honest I have to ask my Grandkids how to do certain functions on my smart phone.

The last 20 years have seen a giant leap in technology.
And I like that you can see just about any show ever made on you tube or the equivalent.

I dont see why any opther country has to go in and fight ISIS. It was the US who just had to get rid of that evil Sadam who started this whole cluster $%#$.
We upset the balance of terror in that region. Now that Iraq has shown it will not defend itself, OR is it they would like to be in the new Caliphate?
Iran on the other hand is scared crapless.
I wonder what other country in that region has a play plan of their own Financing ISIS?

And they still let folks fly all over the world coming out of Ebola infested countrys?

Just when you thought it was ending. So much for the added screening at the airports.
It aint over yet.
Oh I forgot to add, I bet Canadas vaccine gets some human testing now.

My guess is we have been nutured by nature to be violent.


We nurture ourselves to be violent James, Nature doesn't do that. Nature creates good and evil people. Good people nurture themselves to be good and gentle, evil people nurture themselves to be the devils creatures they are, like this man:

:((

That can not be true!!!! I suspect an internet hoax, And or a sick freaking joke. There is no way in hell any state would condon that. And if you read the last line. It states he didnt eat the kid because it was over cooked. I say pure BS.

A lot of early telivison shows came from radio series.
I lsiten to Radio Clasics on Sirus XM 82. I love those old shows.
Thanks for rekindling some nice memories.

Edit- It was Highway Patrol with Biderick Crawford.

WRVO FM 89.9 out of Oswego NY does do a show from 10 PM untill 12:00 PM they also have a website that cobroadcast its. Ill post the link in an edit.

Bad idea Janne, we'd grow out to be some mutated freaks:) If we even can't find a cure for ebola, we shouldn't start messing with Nature...

Julie...

Assuming we Humans Evolved on this Planet:

We are Nature and Natural (Nature Made Us). Therefore... Maybe Nature isn't as nice as we would like to believe, and the destruction we do is Natural and Nature's Plan.

Do I believe the above? No. But it makes one think.


Nature is not nice. Look at the death toll every year beacuse of Nature. Nature has thrown 5 mass extinction events at us over the Earths history.
Life has hung on. Then when you add in our history of killing each other. Kind of makes you wonder Nature or Nuture.
My guess is we have been nutured by nature to be violent.

I was just 5 years old when Dragnet 1957 was on tv. I remember M squad,Not to be confused with the Mod squad fron the 70's. Gunsmoke with Chester not Festus playing Matts partner. Aslo another show with Broderick Crawford playing a cop. Just cant think of the name. How about Doby Gillis, Father knows best, Our Miss Brooks. The Real Mcoys. Jack Benny, Milton Berle.

Its not all man made conflicts either. Our planet throws some curve balls to test how tough life is. It seems that life is pretty tough.

Let me put it another way. The serum he got was experimental. There were only 2 portions of it. They gave him 1 but he made them give it to his nurse instead. Then they gave him the last one. It's a very time consuming procedure to make the serum, and it doesn't cure you. It only helps to hold off the infection until your body starts to make antibodies. The only cure for this disease is for your body to make Antibodies to the virus. As the infection gets worse, your body tries to fight it off using the natural defenses that it has for all infections. This includes the releasing of chemicals and destroying infected disease or blood. You eventually get to a point where either your body starts to make antibodies and fights of the virus(hopefully) or your body collapses and fails. So it's a balancing act of your body. If you are lucky, your antibodies fight it off. If you aren't, you die. The only preventative measure would be if they manage to make a vaccine for it. And they haven't been able to do that yet. They are attempting to making some but haven't been able to produce one yet. until then its a sit and wait game. The best you can do is supportive therapy for someone.


The fact remains they had to seize the opportunity to recreate the serum for a good cause, especially in a crisis situation like the appearance of the Ebola virus. I guess they just hadn't the funds... Thanx for explaining Zalster:)

Julie, They (were,are) grasping at straws. They havent a clue if the blood plasma thing works.
They were scared crapless that it got so out of hand they would try anything. They got lucky this time. Maybe. It aint over untill the lady sings.
And then I would hope that the medical community from all over the world would step up and say lets get a vaccine for this damn diasese! And the worlds governtments would say, Ok lets do this.
But I doubt it.
Why find a cure that might take lots of money, When we need the money to fight each other over stupid crap.

Common sense is long gone from the USA. It's been replaced by the crazies.... Reports are starting to come in about people claiming they have Ebola and showing up at the ER's wanting treatment. They throw the system into chaos and then they find out these people are lying because they want the individual attention. I can't prove it but I bet if they checked( and I'm sure they have checked) these people they would find mental illness. The lockdown of a hospital with a positive patient is a no brainer. Unfortunately we have a CDC and government with no brains...SMH

Then start pressing charges against the idiots and mental cases for filing a false charge.
And you want to relie on western medicine?

I saw that on the news tonight. Thats one hell of a long time in space.
Kind of makes me wonder if the US is testing a weapon platform or an on command spy camera.
