LOL! How would you like your dentist wearing one of those? I'd tell mine the treatment has to be free if I have to look in her mouth too. :-)

Delta passengers quarantined following medical scare (which turned out to be bug bites

Snip: According CBS Chicago, the rash was ultimately determined to be the result of bug bites, but only after the plane was surrounded by Chicago fire department trucks on the tarmac at Midway airport.

Maybe bed bugs? Hope they get a good exterminator to go over that plane. (I’m getting *itchy*.)

I wonder if it was an undercover air marshal who took the pictures and sent them to the CDC? My imagination races over stuff like this.

Those were probably distractions created by one TSA agent to provide cover for another agent stealing something from another passenger.

There are no limits to what professional thieves will attempt.

“Complacency - and especially that brand of complacency that finds it satisfying to sneer at the vigilant and prepared - is the true enemy.....”

Surely thou art not claiming TSAPersons are either vigilant or prepared for anything other than groping and stealing?

Doubtful that it’s Ebola....she’d be dead by now but there are strains of Ebola in nearby Cote d’Ivoire and Sudan.

This one is even MORE realistic. These masks are incredibly lifelike, aren't they?

How would you like to be locked on the disease plane next to the sick person? Some people would get understandably violent.

A quarantine should separate the confirmed-sick people from the rest.

It’s being reported that it’s Monkey pox. My guess they were worried about Small pox.

I believe we’ll see the ‘big one’ in our lifetime, regarding a devastating pandemic. We are long over due, and combined with the world being so much smaller due to our transportation(MUCH more-so than around 100 years ago), we are just right for it.

We are due to lose about a half billion due to a plague, and then another 300-500 million to a real world war.(the stage is well under way to being set for this right now)

She has zombie looking eyes. At ‘ground zero’ of the event, she might have to be shot on sight, just to be on the safe side.

One minute, she could be all normal. Drinking a few drinks and ready to sleep with just about anyone - what every woman should do in the event of a zombie apocalypse, and then suddenly she’s looking to go all out zombie and eat our brains! Best just to get rid of any chance of it early on!

To: Repeal The 17th

“Detroit to Chicago by car = 4 hours.
Why would you fly that?
Not me.”

Delta/Northwest has a hub in Detroit. The vast majority of the people on the flight are connecting from another flight. They don’t drive the last leg in order to save money and to have as little contact with Detroit as possible.

Also, depending on time, the 4 hur drive may become a six hour drive. Finally, if he destination is the Loop in Chicago, a car (and its parking needs) may be more hindrance than help. Chicago has become VERY car unfriendly ; tolls just went up 90%, too.
