Rwanda to Screen American Travelers for Ebola Hysteria

This is pretty awesome.

In response to Ebola hysterics in America, the African nation of Rwanda will now screen passengers from America for the Ebola virus:

On October 19, the Rwandan Ministry of Health introduced new Ebola Virus Disease screening requirements. Visitors who have been in the United States or Spain during the last 22 days are now required to report their medical condition—regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms of Ebola—by telephone by dialing 114 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the duration of their visit to Rwanda (if less than 21 days), or for the first 21 days of their visit to Rwanda. Rwandan authorities continue to deny entry to visitors who traveled to Guinea, Liberia, Senegal, or Sierra Leone within the past 22 days.

This is a response to moronic Americans kicking kids out of school because the’re from, or have recently been to, Rwanda or other African nations regardless of whether or not those nations have a single case of ebola.

It would make more sense to screen children with family members who’ve had the flu or children who come from homes with guns.

But this is ‘Merika and making sense if for commies.

Terror From the Deep

So a cursed fisherman hauled in this monstrosity while fishing  off the Singaporean island of Pulau Ubin:

So the obvious question is: What the fuck is that thing!?

According to Discovery News, it’s likely a basket star, an invertebrate related to a starfish. Basket stars start out with five arms, from which smaller appendages sprout over over time. The creatures can re-grow their limbs which have small sharp hooks on them to capture prey — if someone or something breaks them off.

Not that I’m going anywhere near that thing.
