For anyone still here...

Back in 1994 Ms. Ramirez was critical ill with late stage
cancer and came to a California emergency dep't. [a]

Where... a bunch of staffers collapsed and a couple
got critically ill.

Lots of lots of investigations ensued.

(We had extensive discussions back then).

Anyway, this exact (more or less) scenario
was the ksy plot device in tonight's episode
of "Murdoch Mysteries", a crime drama based
in 1910ish Toronto.

S17 ep 19 "A most surprising bond"

And yes, they even figured out the DMSO link!

Still here, but I think I missed the original discussion. I don't
remember when I started, probably sometime in the early 2Ks.

Well, in the late '80s I was posting in rec.arts.tv.drwho and some of
the sci.space groups. I had to be led to AFCA by a rocket scientist.

I am a very slow Who fan, still working on the DVDs of Eccleston and
Tennant. And I have a boxed set of Farscape (bought used) that I
haven't touched yet. Too many rockets on ootoob, where I'm also
working my way through Adam Savage's "Tested".

Hmmm- I wonder where my Farscape tshirt is?

I came very late to being a Who fan-it was near Smith's end that I
first got interested.

In the early '80s, I stumbled across Dr Who ... Tom Baker and his
then-wife the second Romana, watching on a small b&w tv, with my first
VCR getting snowy pictures from the local PBS affiliate. I think I had
a a small color tv by the time HHGTTG came from the same station.

I'm not sure exactly when I tripped over usenet, but in the early 80s
I was working at Apollo, and was regularly reading (and posting on)
rec.autos.sport.f1, alt.fan.pratchett, ...

I believe that Camilla Caracchiolo (sp?), a very distinguished nurse,
did an exhaustive analysis of this affair and published it on Usenet
(probably sci.skeptic before it fell to the storm troopers) and probably
other places too. I think it was in the 90s.
