    Don't worry about ebola. There are only something like 5,000 confirmed deaths of Ebola (in the WORLD).

    From the CDC:

    Case Counts*

    *Case counts updated in conjunction with the World Health Organization updates and are based on information reported by the Ministries of Health.
    As of October 8, 2014
    (Updated October 10, 2014)
    Total Cases: 8400

    Laboratory-Confirmed Cases: 4656

    Total Deaths: 4033


    When an infection does occur in humans, the virus can be spread in several ways to others. Ebola is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes in, for example, the eyes, nose, or mouth) with

    • blood or body fluids (including but not limited to urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, breast milk, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola
    • objects (like needles and syringes) that have been contaminated with the virus
    • infected animals
    • Ebola is not spread through the air or by water, or in general, by food. However, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats. There is no evidence that mosquitos or other insects can transmit Ebola virus. Only mammals (for example, humans, bats, monkeys, and apes) have shown the ability to become infected with and spread Ebola virus.


    The people in the US that have gotten it have either come directly from a country where it is prevalent and the sanitation is lessened, or they were treating someone with it. Unless you're letting random people put their bodily fluids all over and in you-no worries. Wash your hands, try not to touch your face-all of the same precautions you'd take during flu season.

    i don't take any of those precautions during flu season lol, i have always prided myself on having the immune system of a beast! But, my co-workers travel to Dallas a lot, so in the event they may have contact with someone infected and bring it here, i'll be one of the first damn ones to get it lol. So i do feel more connection to it than some people across the country might. At least that's how i'm justifying my concern.

    Start going to work in a medical mask and gloves :):panicsmiley:
    Usually it's really easy for me to get all caught up in the hoopla, but I don't know. This one didn't get me. But I also don't live in TX...so it's easy to distance myself.

    Not only that, but my step mothers sister has been real sick in Dallas, she just passed away this past weekend, rip. So my step mother and father have been traveling to a Dallas hospital a lot the past few weeks. I don't think it was the same hospital with infected patients, but it's enough to make you worry a bit.

    I'm not rich, and I don't have a lot of money in my investment accounts, but it SUCKS to watch my hard earned monthly deposits for the past 6 months DISAPPEAR within days. Maybe I'm not cut out for this stock market thing. Ready to hide my cash under a mattress.

    A nurse from that Dallas hospital came here to plan her wedding. 3 of her relatives work at Kent State University. Her Mom lives close by and they were out shopping and such. I think I heard the nurse is back in Dallas and is showing symptoms. I'm not freaking out about it, but yeah it's scary stuff. I'll update as more info comes out.

    Well, laziness/stupidity got the best of me. I occasionally do some shore fishing at our local reservoir this time of year. I was out on the boat last week and when I was packing up decided to put my main rod in the box of my truck and leave it there. Usually I transport it in the cab and take it in the house. I opened the box today and immediately had that feeling of dread because there was no way a 6'6" one piece rod could be in the position it was in and not be broken. Sure enough, snapped the top 12" off. That's $150 down the drain.

    Wife's car has some electrical issue. Took it to the Acura stealership this morning. Not looking forward to the call this afternoon when they tell me what is wrong. Fingers crossed it is covered under the extended warranty I purchased.

    I'm new to the world of the APBT but I'm already getting frustrated with people sharing photos of AmBullies or SBTs as "pitbulls" or how EVERYONE describes their bully mix as a "red nose pit" or a "blue nose pit". I'm so glad I have an insatiable need to research absolutely everything about everything because I'd hate to look as uninformed and ignorant as so many bully breed owners do.

    Lol i just told a idiot on my instagram thats been stalking me for months to come on this page and talk to people that have experience with this breed. Lol He claims pit bulls are dogs before a breed and all dogs are pack animals and that my DA dog is because of my lack of leadship. Oh guys remember pit bulls are not a breed nor were bred to be fight dogs. They are nanny dogs.

    Prepare yall selves, and may odds be ever in your favor.

    Wolves are pack animals. They are pack animals because they are with their blood families. The hierarchy is setup long before a pup is born.

    Dogs aren't pack animals. They aren't wolves.
