Re: Ebola arrives in America tomorrow on a fancy private jet

I heard on CNN the other night that the first sign of ebola is a high fever, and when Dr. Spencer took his temp (as he had been doing 2x per day) and it was high, maybe 103 (?), that's when he called for help. Maybe the expert who said that the first sign of ebola is a high fever was wrong. All I kn...

Re: Ebola arrives in America tomorrow on a fancy private jet

Test results are in. The doctor, now in NYC's Bellevue Hospital, who treated Ebola patients in West Africa does have Ebola. His girlfriend is also in isolation now. Nothing to worry about though. Manhattan is not very densely populated, and people rarely are in close contact with each other . :wack...

Re: Just in time for XYZmas, Breaking Bad Action Figures

I doubt most kids look to action figures and toys as role models. I played with Voltron, Transformers, GI Joes, Barbies, AND My Little Ponies as a kid, and never did I want to be any of them. I never wanted to look like any of them. They were just toys, and sometimes they fought against good, somet...

Re: A Book(s) Thread

I just finished I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella. Totally delightful book! I almost passed it by. I've grown rather tired of Becky Bloomwood, Kinsella's "Shopaholic" series protagonist, and thought maybe I'd outgrown her books, event the non- "shopaholic" books. But it wa...

Re: Women, don't ask for a raise. Trust karma.

I don't really agree with his advice, but it doesn't really bother me either. It's just his opinion, which everyone is entitled to, and I guess that I didn't read any more into it than that. Anyone can take it or leave it. That's what I thought too. Yeah, what he said wasn't the smartest thing, esp...

Re: Tell you and your SO's story

We met on a popular dating site. I contacted my husband first. We e-mailed each other a few times, exchanged numbers, and then met for coffee not long after.

Re: Ebola arrives in America tomorrow on a fancy private jet

It would make instructive listening for anyone who can't quite understand how docs and other care-givers get infected. Yeah, it's not that the disease's mechanisms of transmission aren't understood, it's that protecting yourself 100% from them is hard, and doing it over and over again gives you new...

Ame, how was the trunk space in the Forrester? Excellent. We felt it was significant. The Mazda, etc, "feel" taller but on paper they're all pretty much identical. Down to like 1-2 inches. We've seen TONS of the Mazdas around, two of our neighbors just got them. I did tell Dh I think he s...

Re: Need some car input--do you drive any of these vehicles?

Someone, maybe Ame, mentioned v6. What exactly does that do other than make a car...zippier? I know it's a type of engine, different than a 4 cylinder, but I don't know much more. How much more, on average, would you say it adds to the price of the car and gas?
