Geometric Series…. MERS

Experts on TV, including FNC yesterday, were saying “There is NO WAY, you’re gonna get this disease. Don’t worry. Be happy. It won’t get spread around”.

Yesterday there were a total of two.

Today, there are four.  Tomorrow?  Who knows.  The first guy has been confirmed to have sat on several airplanes traveling through the USA – and has come into contact with MORE THAN 500 people in those planes and buses he rode.  Imagine if you will the scenario where 10% of those people get it.  Then go from there.

Anyone know about geometric series? Double the penny everyday for a month? You’ve all heard that. Now start doubling the number of people who get a disease and see where it goes….
