Brain-eating amoeba confirmed in Florida!

Quote
A person in Florida has been infected with a rare and usually deadly brain-eating amoeba, according to health officials.

The Florida Department of Health announced Friday that one patient in Hillsborough County has been infected with Naegleria fowleri, a water-borne,microscopic single-celled amoeba that attacks the brain.

"Infections can happen when contaminated water enters the body through the nose," the health department said.


DOH, along with practicing social distancing at the shark infested beach; or my alligator overrun and cottonmouth riddled local swimming hole, I only inhale contaminated water thru my mouth. Some people...

So what's you folks excuse?

Snakes. We have a rather large python that kicks around the back yard every now and again and now it seems his mates are moving in.

This was a couple of nights ago just as i was getting ready for a Pe2 sortie and noticed some movement out of the corner of my eye on my right. White Crown, weakly venomous, lizards and such. He got a night time trip to the garden.

How is this exactly new? This amoeba has been known about for a long time and there have been reported cases in the past.

It's just the typical sensationalist news media whoring themselves again for ratings. Move along.

I don't know if I could get use to that.

I don't like snakes and spiders and scorpions and centipedes and millipedes and caterpillars.

Heard many stories of people finding snakes in the toilet after they sat down on it.

I figured the problem with Florida Man is the arsenic that's prevalent in the water supply.

Our temperate rain forest climate is very mold friendly, and I believe the wonky thought processes often in evidence here are largely the result of constantly being exposed to high levels of mycotoxins.

Still, you don't see Florida grade levels of WTFery too often.

A special treat that I remember from North Queensland is finding large Green Frogs in the toilet bowl. Friendly little cusses and perfectly harmless but a bit of a shock to the old posterior if you sat without looking. Then you go outside to find the dog's water bowl full of cane toads relaxing eating mosquitos.

Always used a whisk when using the outhouse.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

While Australian girls love me, I've never really had a particular interest in visiting Australia, with snikes and spoidas everwhere, and that whole being upside-down thing seems overrated as well.

Man, and I thought it was scary when I walked out my front screened door a couple of weeks ago and a little, maybe 3 foot black snake scurried of next to my bare feet.

Freakin brown snakes are deadly!. They seem to lie invading human habitat too.

Export to China?

We have a shovel that sits outside for the caneys that use the animal bowl as a pool. 2-3 a night in summer get the whack-a-mole treatment.
