Wow. This specimen should be in a psychiatric facility, at best. Whether he is beyond being a public threat or not. He most certainly should not be getting media space!

Yep, that water would've been cold enough to take the fight out of probably even the most proficient of swimmers. Terrible.

Washing your hands well or periodically using one of those alcohol sprays/gels is a start and you should avoid rubbing your eyes, too. But there's little to no protection from the inconsiderate sneezers. If you wear specs there's a bit more protection from it but at the end of the day if those that feel ill would just stay home...

Well, that didn't go so well.
sidesmileNov. 17, 2014 - 10:24AM JST
Speculation, but...I would guess the stabber will go to a young offenders institute and never step foot in that school again. The principal will be dragged over the coals by the board of education, receive a hefty pay cut, and be moved along come April. I will also speculate that this involved a notorious student and it was only a matter of time before this boy hurt somebody, proper. The question is not only how to effectively punish, but also how to better prevent.

Actually it says information "including". It then goes on to say that information will be "made public regarding their age, sex, symptoms, and possible persons with whom the patient has come in contact". How will they announce the info? On the evening news, in the arrivals lounge, running up to folks point and yelling "Ugh! Ebola!"..

Well, if on a promise of a suspended sentence, he did actually roll on the folks who supplied him then he should probably make himself pretty scarce. He was caught with a large amount of drugs and should definetely have done time but no...I'm wondering if the gentlemen he procured it from are fairly big fish?... involved in supplying other big names? Huge speculation, of course, but still...I'd grab me passport and vanish for a while if I was him.
