Nevertheless, the article quotes a 37 year old book with what little was known back then.
And now my rant.....
The hysteria and freaking out about it in the US just plays into the hands of the "whatever-industrial" government complex. Real information means nothing and facts and data are to be either ignored, manipulated, or misunderstood, or any combination of the three.
The US is being consumed by inteli-narcissism, the idea that everyone is somehow intelligent and capable of thought and analysis. Anyone can read and edit a Wikipedia document that may or may not be true. They can read a new story written by a supposed expert that may or may not be true and the person walks away with total knowledge on a subject. This is common among the those who failed out of school. They are the masses who are easily manipulated and that ease is made even easier by their own stupid pride. Maybe this belongs on the US sucks thread but I will keep it here.
The overwhelming and most disturbing thing I've seen in my time back in the US has been that a vast majority of people somehow think they are super intelligent and knowledgeable......but they are in reality of similar intelligence to Honey Boo's mother. Reality shows? They bring on the stupidest people they can find.......I think the most common line in every single reality show is: If .........., then we'll be screwed. I should put "reality" in quotes because they aren't reality shows, they are minimally scripted shows. They are designed for one purpose: Make the viewers feel better than those they are watching.....more intelligent, better looking, etc. And people eat them up. I swear that internet memes are created with this sole purpose in mind.
I'm in graduate engineering school right now and I work alongside Army Engineers getting their masters. I'm shocked at the same time by their ineptness and there obliviousness to their project errors. If these engineers are indicative of the quality found in our military then no wonder the military is doing what they are doing.
People are freaked out over Ebola. They are being told to freak out with fake information. Fear works good for government control. Who the heck knows what is really going on, but I'm not going to waste my time worrying about it. What I do know is that the 21 day incubation period is a guesstimate and some people get asymptomatic Ebola.
Back to the upcoming failure of the US, pride comes before the fall. If that is true then there is a great fall coming and I wonder if the king horses and men will even bother putting the US back together again.
