You Make the Call


Is this man the luckiest sumbitch in the world? Or the unluckiest?

Not sure whether he's luckiest or unluckiest, but I can tell you he's got competition for either (both?). In Laurie Garrett's THE COMING PLAGUE, she tells the story of one of the microbe hunters dispatched to the Bumba zone of Zaire during the first known outbreak of Ebola. This researcher (a woman, I believe) contracted Ebola during her travels, but recovered. Assuming she was now immune, she was dispatched a second time to another outbreak, AND CAUGHT EBOLA AGAIN. AND LIVED. If that doesn't deserve some consideration, I don't know what does.

She may be unkillable now.

He probably had the unluckiest kids in Japan.

No foolin'. Unless I'm misremembering, in which case your guy wins in a rout. Either way, that dude totally shoulda used his powers to fight crime.

Psst, Dusty -- Teresa Neilsen Hayden doesn't spell her first name with an H.

Thanks. Fixed.

I'm thinking luckiest. He has the world's smallest peer group, and he never has to worry about hitting the bowl when he pees in the middle of the night, since he's probably pissing tracers.
