Pictured above: Ebola.

Not really, but that’s what everyone wants me to think today, if my Facebook timeline is any indication. Apparently, since there’s a confirmed case of Ebola in the US (and in the town where I live, no less), we’re all clearly doomed. Doomed, I tells ya.

How have we not learned to just ignore the media by this point? Journalism isn’t a real thing anymore, with certain exceptions — it’s just an attempt to put the most attention-grabbing shit possible out there to get clicks, because that’s how web sites make money.

Look, unless you make it a habit to hang out with Ebola patients, and they keep throwing their vomit and feces on you… you have about as much to fear from Ebola as you do from dying in a mid-air collision. Sure, the possibility is there, but it’s so minuscule that worrying about it is just silly.

Also, has anyone seemed to notice that we seem to be doomed on a weekly, if not daily basis these days? And most of us are still here?

Wonder how that works?

CTFOAMTDT, everybody. It’s cool. Here’s a picture of DJ Qualls hacking the planet to make you feel better.

    CTFOAMTDT needs to be on t-shirts! Just two–that we wear and make people wonder, “What the hell does that mean?”

    I have seen more links to sites sharing the “real” news about ebola (i.e. We’re all doomed!!!). The sites, oddly enough, say, “To save yourself, consume these vitamins and buy these products for safety…and oh, yeah…we just-so-happen to sell these very items. Lucky you!”
