it's not a calculator in any way, but it is a character planner

How so?  It didn't seem that there was branches to the powers. You got what you got when you got it. Did I miss this customization capability?

Many of the skills are only one per column, so even after you unlock the next you aren't necessarily unlocking and upgrade but rather another choice.

while you're spending $75 for a beta, throw a TrackIR at me and I'll join ya  ninja

I'm so tempted to just go bananas with peripherals and buy a TrackIR as well, but once the Rift comes out I can't see myself ever needing TrackIR again.

Chikungunya has made it here, and has a confirmed case that doesn't originate from Caribbean travel.  A bribe in the right place to let someone get on an international flight, and we've got serious problems.  The big thing keeping Ebola from being truly terrifying is that it's spread by fluids, not through the air.  That, and it's acquired from African animals.  It would be quite difficult for it to obtain a foothold here in the US, and then migrate to a wild animal population repository.  It's a bit different when your society doesn't require the eating of wild animals.

Good points. 

It does spread from sweat though, right, as that's a fluid?  That, and our awful open southern border, is why I'm more concerned.

I believe so, but again, you've got to connect the dots.  How much travel is going to originate in African areas, head to Mexico via some path, and then trickle across the southern border?  Especially for people that are consuming bush meat or those that come in close proximity to said people?
I pray to God you're right, but with the Islamist extremists running rampant, I don't find it all that far fetched.

Honestly Ed - I didn't mean this to get political. Apologies - heck I'm Canadian so you can take that apology with %10000000000 honesty.

The 'nothing to see here' was meant purely as I am confident that our infrastructure could take care of this much more efficiently than where it is being fought now and that beating the drums of despair gets a little old now a day.

wow! Talk about doomsday here guys.

The 'experts' are all saying that should it migrate to NA we have tried and true quarantine procedures that would serve to greatly lessen the impact.

Nothing to see here - move along (or keep watching Fox News..... ninja)

I'd like to politely ask to keep this from being moved to R&P because I legitimately want to participate, and my conservative ass isn't allowed there.

However, to think that it's unlikely it gets here is naive at best, and I Hope to God our quarantine procedures are that bullet proof.  The Fox News jab was frankly nauseatingly naive as well.

I agree - this isn't a political conversation.   Let's not make it into one unduly.
