    This is really bad. Hopefully it will burn itself out before spreading further.

    With so many people living close together as they do, I hope and pray for Ebola to be stopped before it can spread any further!

    If Ebola were ever to present itself to a country, let's say India or China, this world would be in serious trouble.

    Ebola with a near 100% fatality rate appears and disappears throughout Africa regularly.This CDC stage 4 disease was found in monkees years ago who happen to wonder into a cave found to be a secretive burial ground for elephants.Ebola has completely destroyed villages with the only way to stop the spread of this disease is by totally burning the village and all deceased as well together.Read the book the HOT ZONE about how by mistake contaminated monkees with Ebola were shipped stateside years ago and ended up in the CDC main in Atlanta in containment till they bled out. Its a horrorible way to die with all your internals turn to gel and you eventualy bleed out,its a disease that's till mysterious today in its way it consumes its host within days and how the CDC is fighting to eliminate it...

    Little Mister, I'm not entirely sure you're joking or not, but you may be onto something. However, what about starting it in Washington DC for the best impact? Or, maybe, in your home town?
