View Full Version : spores
What are your thoughts on anthrax?
Do you think Osa-Osa...Osama is..is behind it?
Do you think it's lucky that anthrax occurred after the WTC attacks as opposed to before them (since we were on the alert for it afterward)?
Any change in your living habits?
Just curious :smile: Good luck and be healthy.

Yes, with help from Iraq, though not 100% sure. Though I believe the hoaxes are not all and a lot is paranoia
No question. Though after the first guy died, I believe the heightened alert would have been there anyway. Just adds to the speculation of who. Probalby would have assumed domestic otherwise.
Absolutely not. I see as much chance of me getting this as getting a mail bomb from the uni-bomber. Besides, it seems very treatable as long as you get quick attention
I've got a few disposable P100-rated respirators in my desk at work and car glove compartment. These were about $7 (seven) each and just look like a standard $0.10 dust mask, just a little thicker and with a rubber face seal collar. CNN said that those rated with the N100 or P100 provide a good amount of protection against inhaling Anthrax Spores, Small Pox particulates, and TB particulates. (The saftey equipment store I got these from confirmed the benefit of the P100 and N100 rating.) Mine is the actual one model that CNN showed and is made by 3M. The company mail people are wearing gloves. I figure that if some mail room alert goes off I'll wear it while exiting the area. Otherwise it is business as usual.
