Rules For Life

People who don't try, don't do.

From local rumors in Omaha, UNMC BL-IV is trying. With a real world Ebola patient. Let us hope this is only rumor.

I had a boss who was crazy. He'd tell me to do things that I knew were impossible. Oddly, I managed to do nearly all of them.

That was transformational. I learned the biggest limit on me, was me.

I had a boss who told me to do things that I knew, from ten years of prior experience, would not work.

I said, "Okay, I don't think this will work, but I'm always willing to learn new methods and we'll try it your way."

It didn't work. It didn't work in exactly the manner I expected and predicted that it wouldn't work.

I was the one who got blamed for it not working.

I can't even complain about that. The moment I accepted responsibility for carrying out the plan, KNOWING it wasn't possible to do it, it absolutely became my fault.

When someone tells you to do something you know can't be done, say so. Say "This cannot be achieved in the manner you want done, and I refuse to accept responsibility for attempting something I know cannot be done. If you insist, I will end my employment here, so that you can find somebody who believes in your vision and is willing to give it an honest shot."

The replacement won't succeed either, but they might successfully scam the boss into looking at a shiny object over there for a while.

They must have had so much fun the first time around that they wanted to expose the whole family to Ebola a second time.

The level of stupidity on Dr LaRochelle and his nurse wife is astonishing. Dodged a bullet once and decided to roll the dice again. Really? And exposing their own kids to it all? This has crossed the line of sacrificing and doing good into being retarded. So yes, slow learners indeed. Hope? I hear hope is worth shit going up against Ebola.

Aesop, that’s from Uganda. Patient 3 looks like a classic Ebola patient, down to attending a DRC funeral. Uganda says initial testing negative, but we’ll see.

I give it 14 days before they have 5-20 new cases from their Patient Zero & Family.
We'll see.
