… but this seems like the most reasonable explanation (in light of a complete and utter lack of any evidence of any toxic substances) for the “bus poisoning” debacle.
Dr. Richard Mathias says it’s very possible there was never any noxious or toxic substance on the bus, where several people became ill. And he says the incident is almost a textbook case of mass anxiety.
Emergency workers examine bus “An unknown substance which turns out to be harmless, somebody getting sick.” he says. “Nausea, vomiting, all of those kinds of things are associated with this.
“Somebody starts to get sick and then it rapidly spreads to other people. (It’s) quite a classic presentation for this sort of thing.”
Granted, there was likely some agent (food poisoning or illness) that initially made the driver sick – but how often do we find ourselves blaming anyone or anything for the ill that sometimes befalls us? And really, they found DIRT AND WEEDS in those “mysterious pellets” – perhaps some serious spring allergies triggered it all?
What do you think?
