But I suspect one has to look beyond biology toward cosmology.

Maybe like Wealth of Nations meets the death of nations. Adam Smith and Charlie Darwin could discuss this over lunch. Maybe invite Thomas Jefferson, Malcom Forbes, M. Gandhi, Will Rodgers, Leo da Vinci, Steve Jobs, Judit Polgar, Chris Langan, and a couple of the modern whiz kids.

I'd like to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.

CDC is now trying to find and track over 250 people in the U.S. up from one patient. Oh yes they have it totally under control.

I once read that the West Coast of Tasmania was the place to go to hide out in a Global pandemic.

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

Oregonians have always railed against Californians moving up there. They are really going to hate it as the folks who can get out of LA and SF hit the road.

That 1 to 250 number is scary. I'm afraid even math-challenged folks are going to find out what "exponential" means.

Posting this because I can't be the only CF member in this situation.

11 pages and I can't stay away any longer

Forget the "green zones"; there won't be any (IMO).

If you know your geography and have any idea of the world's population, you will be able to see big flaws in the "science" behind the so-called green zones.

Hey, this is getting too close to home! Maybe Belize should ban travel from the USA!

Better yet, a great excuse to ban cruise ships from Belize!

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

Although I have been reading all of these "Ebola" threads with interest, I have been less and less inclined to post because of the hysteria. I do not want to contribute to people getting more and more anxious. Perhaps I could address a few issues that have come up with out causing too much trouble.
1. Large volume meds can still be had at a pharmacy. Controlled drugs are a problem, but diabetic or hypertension drugs are not. Make sure you know the shelf life of the drugs you need.
2. Most of the vomiting/bleeding/infectious nature of Ebola occurs once the patient becomes very symptomatic. Can it be spread before that? I don't think we know. I am underwhelmed by the ability of the virus to spread early. Out of all those people exposed in Nigeria and on the planes here how many have come down with it? The flu does a much better job.
I will now go back to lurking. Blaming the government, protocols and people's stupidity is a waste of time. Learn and go forward with this one.

Going to let facts get in the way of a good rant type thread aren't you

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

I am still worried about the zombies, trying to prep. I saw in a movie zombies can't swim but they can walk on the bottom. Pirates of the caribbean, I saw it happen. So I need help, I am concerned about them climbing up from my anchor. So can anyone suggest weather chain or road would be harder for them to climb. Also how much scope would be best to give time get them before they reach the boat? Other than that already on the boat now. Having the last farewell party at Fantasy Fest in Key West.

Large hooks attached to the rode will immobilize the zombies. Also chuming around your boat to attract sharks so they can naw on the zombies.
Just be careful when you up anchor.

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

Great idea I thought about marine grease on chain also. Just like we used to do on the pole for the bird feeder with petroleum gelly to keep the squirrels from climbing.
