If that's wrong, you can assume other stuff is wrong too.
With respect, Philbis, both quotes are dangerously erroneous - the first one by ignoring quantum fluctuations (studied with the late Richard Feynman and can post his proof to that one) and the second simply by the fact the poster is the same one who spread the deadly (fortunately not for herself, or the other person involved in the thread you know about, even though the latter had to spend a week in isolation at death's door) so you might reconsider both quotes at your convenience.
P.S. the original thread in question >
>has had a couple of thousand hits (couple of thousands!) but no posts (none!) since the last post. Does Jespah have some way to check where the hits originate? Should we have called the hazmat feds to begin with?! Thanks to both of you and regrets in advance if I don't acknowledge receipt of your advice immediately as I'm travelling.
I'd like to put this matter to rest. In order for something to be deadly, someone needs to have died. No one did.
My friend has diabetes and got an infection (not uncommon with diabetes). She lost her toe. The infection was not contagious; she was never isolated. Why would she be? She didn't want a home health care worker coming to her home. She asked me to find her a room. I tried to oblige her. She made other arrangements. She got lessons in injecting herself with insulin.
As for the number of views of this thread, I can only assume that people open this thread for the same reason they open any thead they haven't read--the title. People may be looking for a room in New York City. It's possible that google or other search engines bring them to this thread.
BTW, at my suggestion, my friend hired a home organizer and cleared out her apartment.
