Not following. She's an adult, not some teenager or something. For the record I stopped dating teenagers long ago because 1) I'm now too ugly to get them and 2) I don't wanna go to jail.

Some good reads on the subject:

Killing Hope: U.S. Military and C.I.A. Interventions Since World War II--Updated Through 2003

Why Do People Hate America?

True story. I had an ex muslim gf who was travelling back to Pakistan to see her parents. She asked me to pick out a book for her to read on the plane. I gave her the "Why do People Hate America?" book. She looked at me and said, "Are you ****ing crazy, I'm a muslim going on a plane!".
So is she no longer Muslim, or no longer your girlfriend?

No longer my gf. Amicable break up. We're still friends. She's married now and Muslim forever.

If you need dolphin skin, I think you are pretty much limited to Bad Dragon.

Is there a source with a tally of withdrawals by event?

Should be interesting to see.

It's interesting that almost no women have withdrawn from the golf, they're the ones I would've thought would be most concerned about Zika.

Not really surprised when taking into consideration the disparity in money and worldwide exposure between the men and women professional golfers.

I'd be interested in hearing some stats regarding the women golfers marital and family situation compared to the men.

small sample size but most of the women golfers I've met have about as much chance of getting preggers as their male counterparts so I can see why they wouldn't fear zika

Well, Zika can be transmitted sexually. When Jason Day withdrew he cited the fact that he and his wife were going to be having kids soon. A good move if you don't want to risk having a kid born with microcephaly.

That's pretty much the point I'm trying to get at here.

Am I right to assume that no one in their right mind looking to conceive in the near (or far) future would want to risk traveling to Brazil? Is there a way around it? Is it over-blown?

re: Olympics: RIO Trainwreck Containment

The companies that do news stories profit off of selling lots of news stories. These cases clock in at being overblown 100% of the time.

The worst case models done based on recent Dengue fever outbreaks in Brazil rate the odds of an average tourist catching Zika at 0.003%. August is winter there and a low time for mosquitoes to run rampant. Even if Jason Day does get it, the odds of carrying it to someone who stays at home the entire time are extremely low(tons of people are going to Rio and such and very few people seem to be getting infected after exposure with them back home). Even if you're scared of that, it stays in your blood for a week, in your semen for two weeks. So even if you are a huge nit, you can just postpone trying to get your girl pregnant for a month and it's statistically close to impossible for the child to get diseases suspected to be related to Zika. Or just let the bull do the dirty work for the cuck that you seem to be.

People are either dumb or they just don't want to go to the olympics and are using Zika as a copout. Olympics are different since you aren't really playing to make bank and don't play for your regular fans but suddenly a whole country so people can't really go "**** that".

Golf at the Olympics is pretty lol. Especially considering wrestling lost it's core status and was almost gone for the 2020 Olympics. I mean, wrestling is insanely boring to watch, but it's pretty much the most Olympic sport ever.

Zika is in Utah as well (apparently)... But that's besides the point.
