    Two or three times! Great acting by Bruce Willis and a young Brad Pitt.
    There’s a TV show?

    Doctors in field in China are estimating more than 100,000 infected and a number of them are dying.

    Not only is China covering it up but it is also not providing the doctors resources they need.

    Some serious travel bans need to be implemented or it can get really bad with something that has upto 2 weeks of incubation period.

    Simply checking temperature at the airport is a joke.

    This is going to have global economic impact soon. Also, it looks like Shanghai is going to be quarantined next. Somewhere around 100 million people are quarantined. Hopefully they can control this but it doesn’t look like it.

    Seriously, when this hits Houston, people in my neighborhood are going to completely freak out. They are probably already hoarding food.

    I do wish I had a larger freezer.

    Man, not even chunks of bat in the broth, where it could be any kind of meat, but a full on spread wing bat in a hot tub.

    Here is the recipe:
    https://wp.wwu.edu/batsbatsbats/bat-soup-recipe/

    "How to trap and cook bats the moral way"

    Step 1 : Place the bats (still alive) in a large kettle and add water to cover, ginger, onion, garlic and salt.


    Meanwhile from wikipedia :
    Bats are a natural reservoir for Ebola virus and Marburg virus,and infected bats can pass viruses to humans who come in close contact with them. Bats may also host henipaviruses and various strains of rabies,

    Eating fruit bats is also linked to a neurological disease called lytico-bodig disease.

    Listen..if you want to eat Ebola and Rabies infected wild bats, then by all means. But then go live in the jungle alone so you can't infect other people.

    Who cares about if avocado salad is hip in america?
    What is hip and cool depends on culture.

    I eat many things that Americans would find disgusting.

    I know how to cook octopus in 4 different ways and when I go home I beg my mother to cook snails (it is difficult and disgusting so I'm not going anywhere near that until it's served).
    I have paid a pretty penny in restaurants to eat frog legs, sheep tail , cow's tongue and I have tried bull's testicles.

    However..not wild.
    If you want to eat bats then you are welcome to do so.
    Go make a bat farm and grow bats that are vaccinated and healthy before you eat them.

    Don't go and catch wild snakes, fox ferrets and bats that have corona viruses, ebola and rabies.

    When RO is over 1 it means epidemic.
    If it is 5?
    God help us all.

    I hope it becomes like SARS that by luck it mutated into a harmless virus.

    Dont eat the wing puppies!





    If you want to eat the ugly Microchiroptera, fine by me, enjoy the delightful subtle seasoning of rabies/ebola/novel coronavirus.
