    Has anybody changed their opinion due to subsequent events?
    APF doesn't come in screaming at others about how stupid they are. APF doesn't spam NST with the same tired topic 30 times a month. APF doesn't link to some kook in his mom's basement telling you how to, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" of the world falling down around you. And, when APF is proven wrong, he acknowledges he made a mistake and moves on, rather than harping about "sheeple."

    Considering Ebola has killed us all, I think they are quite vindicated.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Kung fu Monkey

    Kinda hard to catch up when you only have 10 infections on US Soil, and we had to import most of those ready-made.

    That's being very unfair to Ebola.

    lt is amazing how bad the public outrage/fury/chaos was over ebola. I knew at the time that it would go down in the anals of overblown public health crises alongisde the Bird Flu, Swine Flu, SARS, etc. This is an issue that actually swayed the election a little bit for some (easily confused) people.

    I'm hoping the bolded was deliberate.

    And remember what I keep saying about democracy?

    What this guy said was that he can't wait to serve crow in a couple of weeks. To whom? For what, exactly? It apparently doesn't matter now.

    If your crow-serving opportunity ever arose, you'd still be dancing and shoving it people's faces. But it didn't.

    So you had two choices: deny you ever expressed glee about serving crow to all the people who correctly labeled you crackpot or admit that you were wrong.

    You chose unwisely.
