The monkeys were observed to get sick from each other from across the room, in cages. So yes, with Ebola RESTON, it COULD be airborne. But, this is not Ebola Reston, it's a different kind.
It travels through fluids. And the virus is easily caught, but difficult to spread. It's difficult to spread...

iron maiden is BS. No evidence it was ever used and only got famous because of one specimen that was in a museum, at a time when a lot of torture devices were made up to get the crowds in, ala PT Barnum and his sideshows.

it's only contagious until you wash the oil from the plant off. Once you've washed it off, it's not contagious, you just have to wait for your skins allergic reaction to subside.
But be careful of any clothing or other stuff that may have touched the plant, if there is still oil on them, you can ...

I think both teams play very defensively and timid, knowing just a tie gets them both through. I say it ends in 0-0 or 1-1 tie.
The Portugal-Ghana game is more likely to be high scoring since...

yeah, I say suck it up and do some awesome cold weather sports. Snowboard/ski, hike up on a glacier with a guide, swimming in hot springs.
Either that or something in the desert. The Moab idea sounds cool, or maybe Grand Canyon. Do white water rafting, hiking, sky diving would be incredible ther...

I live in nyc and have used uber quite a bit. Some points for people that want to know more:
- uber gets background checks, all personal info of drivers
- if drivers get too many bad reviews, they're dropped from uber
- no cash ever needed. It's billed to the credit card on your account. The dr...

this one is deceiving. I assume this is using an infinite series? It's like the fact that if you added up all positive numbers together, the answer is -1/12. Yes, it's negative one twelfth.
