Oh hell no

This one was completely random, caught my eye scrolling through news stories this morning, from CNN:

Straight out of a nightmare: 5,000 brown recluse spiders inside home

A home in an upscale Weldon Spring neighborhood that has been overrun by brown recluse spiders is finally getting rid of the eight legged creatures.

Crews have covered the house with a giant tent and pumped in poison gas to kill the spiders.

A family bought the home in 2008 and later found out it was infested with what a spider expert estimated to be 5,000 brown recluse spiders. The family sued the previous owners, saying they were not informed of the spider problem. The house eventually went into foreclosure.

An expert on brown recluse spiders said the creature’s bite can be very serious depending on how much venom is injected.

“It’s not going to kill you, but it will make you wish you were dead,” said Jamal Sandidge with the University of Kansas.

An exterminator said there is particular reason why one home may be infested, even though nearby homes have no such problems. “Many times people bring them in, you can move from a house that has them. You buy things at an auction, you have furniture in storage, many times brown recluse spiders are carried right into the house,” said Tim McCarthy with McCarthy Pest and Termite Control.

The family that sued the previous owners accumulated more than $100,000 in legal fees. McCarthy said it will cost around $14,000 to get rid of the spiders.

    Spider Problem? Those Realtors must be terrible salesman.

    That’s just a green, sustainable, power free security system. It even helps keep the house warm in the winter with extra bio-mass in the walls. It wont stay long at this price folks.

    It’ll get to PA before it makes it to North Jersey, we’ll have ample time to prepare up here. We’ll set up a perimeter on 78, bisecting the state, and blow the bridges over the Delaware. The zombies don’t stand a chance.

    No worries, Ebola, like income equality, cannot penetrate the Princeton area’s protective affluenza shield.

    The Ebola spider is gonna bite us in the ass, they need to stop the flights.

    From the comets.

    “Seven of the 11 tested positive for the P.C.R. assay; none of the other 13 did” means that 4 out of 11 people who eventually developed Ebola infection were NEGATIVE on their screen, and means that the test doesn’t have a “4 false negative per 1,000″ rate. There are caveats to that data in real world application.

    The test is still very worthwhile because it DID catch 7 asymptomatic Ebola+ people who were missed by the temperature screen, who could then be quarantined limiting their exposure to other people.

    The best application for this test isn’t the airports (although it could be used there). It’s in our ERs and Hospitals, to help diagnose symptomatic people more quickly and reliably.

    My city has a very large Liberian Population. Currently, what do I do for a Liberian child with a fever of 102.5 who has no known direct exposure to Ebola, West Africa, or Liberia, but does go to a Liberian-American Church and Liberian-American shops and attends a Liberian American daycare? Is it possible that 19 days ago this child used the same toilet as another Liberian who just got off a Liberia-Paris-Minneapolis flight who developed a fever, vomiting and diarrhea (in my patient’s daycare) and went to a different ER?

    They tell me not to worry. And then we see people in Hazmat suits washing down the Dallas nurse’s home/stairs/car.

    I’ll tell you what: I and that kid’s parents would certainly feel a little better if we could have a rapid Ebola test result back in an hour.”

    I’m actually a big fan of requiring home inspection. It avoids things like this. My inspector was top notch. I used him once and he found every little problem within the house, no matter how small down to a nail that had mold on it. I broke contract on the home. Used him a second time and the owner of the house was amazed cuz his inspector did nothing.

  13. Libturd in Union says:

    Nice thing about Ebola is that people may actually wash their hands after pooping. The raw number of individuals that I see that do not is simply astounding.

    Thank goodness that “Dr” Nancy Snyderman only plays a doctor on TV, and isn’t really a doctor … because we might expect a little bit more from a doctor. She was great on General Hospital though. I hear they are sending a tanker full of soup to Liberia on orders from Deepak Chopra.

  20. Juice Box says:

    re: “Did someone hear something?”

    Yes some stupid Doctor who works as a talking head on NBC broke quarantine even though her cameraman Ashoka Mukpo who was her cameraman in Liberia is now is busy puking his out his brains out in Nebraska hospital.

    We are going to need to cut off NJ from 287 in the North to Route 1 in the east to quarantine the breakout in New Jersey, get out the flamethrowers.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-13/we-have-system-failure-cdc-chief-blasted-scapegoating-ebola-protocol-breach?page=1

    It takes a coward to blame the nurse for getting ebola. I suggest that he goes to Dallas and sets up his office in the poor nurse’s room and shows everyone how proper protocol is observed.

    This CDC clown is a real piece of work. On one hand he is saying that ebola is very difficult to catch. Now he is saying that you need to follow the guidelines 100% to avoid infection. These ebola patients need to be removed immediately from the hospital and sent to the level 4 quarantine centers to avoid these types of transmissions. It is clear he is playing politics by allowing hospitals to treat patients as a way to show that the USA can handle any outbreak. Too bad a virus that is 80% lethal does not play partisan politics.

    Shuttle-bus collision killed child at Alstede Farms in Chester

    CHESTER TWP. – A collision involving two shuttle buses in the parking lot of Alstede Farms Sunday evening killed a child and caused serious injuries to the legs of a woman who was then airlifted to Morristown Medical Center, according to Chester Township Mayor William Cogger.

    Four or five other people were less seriously injured, he said.
    The shuttle buses were in an Alstede Farms parking lot about 4:30 p.m.,preparing to leave the property on a road reserved for shuttle buses when one bus rear-ended the other and people were crushed between the vehicles.
    Alstede Farms, a popular fall destination on Route 513, across from Chubb Park, was packed with visitors for 31st Annual Chester Harvest Fest on a crisp, sunny day.
    .
    Throughout Main Street in the borough and at the Chester Shopping Center, banners and signs advertised free parking at the shopping center and free shuttle service to the Harvest Fest, which featured pumpkin picking and other events at the farm, according to the website of the Chester Historic Business Association, a not-for-profit entity of merchants who promote business and attractions to the area.
    The buses are funded by Alstede Farms, the Streets of Chester civic organization and the Chester Historic Business Association.
    Chester Borough merchant Maria Solano, owner of a bakery and coffee shop, said the traffic by Alstede’s has spiraled out of control in the past few years during special events.

    “It’s almost like Disneyland now,” she said. “When a life is taken over picking a pumpkin something’s got to be done.”

    I pity the pearls being clutched so tightly. http://youtu.be/Qh2sWSVRrmo

    It was a tragedy, but no more or less so than had the child been killed in a car accident while Mom was driving elder sibling Ellery to fencing practice, which was equally likely. That bakery owner (selling pies, cookies and deserts, just like Alstede) wishes she had the traffic that Alstede gets — she’d have nothing bad to say about “Disneyland” if her shop was on Main Street USA.

    With a little crafting, that could be a popular bumper sticker. Let me try:

    “Would you like fries with that, or fries and Ebola? Wash your hands after pooping.”
    or
    “Would you like sauce with your McNuggets? What kind, Honey Mustard or Ebola? Wash you hands after pooping, we have enough sauces.”

    Nice thing about Ebola is that people may actually wash their hands after pooping.

    Here is socialized healthcare done with panache…..

    Cops arrested a nurse in northeast Italy in connection to the deaths of as many as 38 patients, who she might have killed because she found them — or their relatives — annoying, officials said.

    Police have the cell phone of Daniela Poggiali, 42, which included a photo she snapped a few months ago of her giving a thumbs up next to a patient who had died moments earlier, according to the Corriere di Bologna newspaper.

    “I can assure you in that all my professional years of seeing shocking photos, there were few such as these,” prosecutor Alessandro Mancini said.

    Poggiali, who lives in the town of Lugo, was taken into custody over the weekend and booked for the alleged slaying of 78-year-old patient Rosa Calderoni who died from an injection of potassium.

    Calderoni had been admitted to the hospital with a routine illness before she died unexpectedly. Tests showed she died with a high amount of potassium, which can provoke cardiac arrest, in his bloodstream, according to the Central European News.

    Her death triggered an investigation and found that 38 others had died mysteriously while Poggiali was on duty, the news agency reported.

    One of Poggiali’s fellow nurses described her as a “cold person but always eager to work,” according to CEN.

    Another one of Poggiali’s colleagues said the accused nurse was once reported for giving powerful laxatives to patients at the end of her shift to make work tougher for nurses working after her.
