White Blood Cells Attacking...
Immune cells called antigen presenting cells (APCs), usually macrophages, detect foreign proteins (usually from infectious agents) present in tissue via toll-like receptors (TLRs) on in the cell membrane. Activation of these receptors actaivates various cell signalling pathways in the APC causing it to release cytokines (e.g. interleukins, TNF, etc.) which activate and attract other immune cells to the site of infection so these cells can attack said foreign protein.
The exact process is more complex (see pic) but this should somewhat explain
You are bloody amazing,
Seriously, you have no idea how much this helped me!
I have a 1000 word essay on viral infections and this really helped out,
You just clarified a few things up for me!
Again, thank you
I love you
You are most welcome
Well basically, every bacteria/parasite has a chemical smell that they release and therefore the small "zerglings" are able to identify it as a threat and gang bang it. Just like the dogs are able to sniff out where you are hiding.

We actually had that recently on my campus, except it was the parking garage.
oh shit, man, i love climbing on roofs. is that illegal?
sorry im more platonic on roofs
It's because of all those damn liberals! Liberals I tell ya!
No but really, our country has pretty much pussified ourselves to all new levels. I mean, I do not agree with doing things that puts other people in danger, but if you're putting yourself at danger...well whatever happens after that is your own fault.
honestly, it's less pussification and more "the legal system is such that if they fall and die, we will get sued and they will win." They have to go to ridiculous lengths to protect themselves from the stupidity of the general populace. that's how most things are now.
Well then it's still an issue of culture, people don't want to take responsibility for their actions anymore.
It's never their fault because they're a special snowflake that can do no wrong.
One of my favorite lines in a movie is from As Good as it Gets. Jack Nicholson's character who is a writer is asked "how do you write women so well?" and he responds, "I think of a man; and I take away reason and accountability." Now, NO ONE wants to retain accountability. "I'm a thief, I fell through someone's roof when I was going to rob them and I got injured. I will sue them and win because their roof was shoddy." Retarded.

There are tons of other cases of unarmed black kids getting killed. OP is ignorant of this fact.
well, the kid was, in the eyes of the cops, in possession of a possibly dangerous weapon. The idiot removed the orange part on the gun, so it looked exactly like a real one at a distance. I understand 100% why the cops shot at the kid when he reached for the gun, after they told him to raise his hands. Although, i don't like the idea that it had to be lethal force.. a kid that age would have gone down without further resistance no matter WHERE the bullet hit him, even if it only went through his hand, arm or some other place where he could recover afterwards.
Also, I think that situation is much more concerning than the Mike Brown shooting.
If your talking about the 12yo boy wtih a fake gun. Then yes, there were demonstrations and protests, but I don't think they turned violent and were relatively small.
