You can watch the video if you're a payed member (I'm not and I don't think I want to watch a video of people running to the ships railings to feed the fish ;) )

Not to be paranoid or anything, but its got to make you wonder if there isn't more going on here. Anyone ever gotten sick on a cruise before?

I admit, I had to laugh when I heard about that. Especially since it's Disney. Ha ha - Nelson Muntz.
But I empathize with the folks on the boat. Food poisoning ain't no joke. I've had it and having your butt be like 'Old Faithful' upside down is not fun.

Confined spaces are a breeding ground for illness. It seems that the CDC is thinking about person to person contact. This isn't the 1st cruise ship to be affected by illness. Because its Disney, its getting more coverage.

Hopefully because of the notoriety, a cause will be found, & prevention measures can be implemented.

I have sympathy for those affected.

...and because it is Di$ney, there will be a ton of lawsuits. Get out your checkbook Mr. Eisner!

From all that I've heard over the years about cruise ships, they'd have to pay me. Second thought, no better safe than sorry!

I believe its 3 cruise ship by now, just as likely to catch on dry land.

FYI: According to Mass Eye & Ear Retinal Blastoma or eye cancer is common in children. Alot are now being checked at birth for this.

Check the photos of your children, red eye is normal. But if you see a white spot, a reflection from the retina. This is indicative of the cancer. Its completely treatable is caught early. A mother on our newscast last night found the cancer too late, child age 5 died. Looking back at his photos, she found the white spots. Now she's out trying to educate parents.

Please check your photos! Ask your physician is your child was screened at birth!

Damn, that didn't work.

wdlove, if you want to upload an image from your computer, you're going to have to use the 'Browse' button at the bottom of the text window.

The [IMG] tags are only for images that are already on the web.

Hope this helps.

Okay, the [IMG] tags don't work in this particular forum so it'll only show up as a link.

If the image is on your computer, then click on the 'Browse' button as shown, and a little window should pop up. From there, you find your image, select it and click OK.

Them click on 'Submit Reply and you should see an image like this:
