Control as in (for now) in spite of the over and under reactions only 2 people who contracted it outside the US died and a few nurses who were trained as best as protocol was provided to them were "cured" of it after they contracted it in the US while the masses were told that there is no chance of Ebola coming to the United States?

Using cracked drinking glasses, because (my perhaps preposterous reasoning is that) tiny particles of glass can break off and be swallowed with the drink, then slice their way through the innards.

Was holding a pair of scissors and my eye itched, so I scratched it. Thankfully missed anything important, but have a nice scrape on my temple now.

So apparently you /can/ itch to death?

Yup. Elon Musk (Tesla cars, PayPal, SpaceX program) said the same thing in October. Way to jump on the bandwagon there, Stephen!

Which just goes to show, it's smart people who watch sci-fi and then say, "Whoa, that could totally happen."

That wasn't a dumb waiter...that was simply an over achiever over thinking and overtly assuming.

Not sure how there is no foul play unless while she was trying to use the thing to deliver food she tripped, contorted into a small 3x3 ball and fell into it. O_o

I used one of those things as a kid to go floor to floor so maybe she tried that?!?!

Jason Mork — the only cop in the tiny city of 859 — said he does not suspect foul play.

Police are investigating the death, but said it is unlikely Baures was trying to move herself in the 3-foot-by-3-foot dumbwaiter.

Huh?

Smog, because ozone is a Deadly Killer. But also protects us from the sun. (My favorite Deadly Killers are the ones that are also beneficial in some way: water, sunlight, most food.)

E-cigarettes, because people think they're relatively harmless compared to paper cigarettes, but the heat in the e-process breaks down the chemicals inside into bad, bad stuff. Also "mice getting vapor-exposed germs had three times as many bacteria growing in their lungs as did mice that got unexposed germs."

The germ infested mice can kill us?

Russian scientist finds mountain sized space rock on course for the planet. NASA after not finding it says don't worry we say no chance it will hit the planet, just like there was no chance that space rock that did hit Russia last time would hit the planet.

Sticking your head in the dumbwaiter and pushing the button will result in a smashed brain. Even if you are a gymnast.
