How many handshakes does it take until everyone is sick in the office? Does each person have a handshake with everyone else?
Sequel

How long would it take for the Yankee to get a stadium full of people sick?

If one person infects ten others everyday, how long would it take the entire office to get infected? [Strong clip!]








If they just left out the spitting, how much incidence of illness could be avoided?

If 1 person in the office gets sick, how long will it take for everybody to get sick?



what if everyone shook everyone's hand? (doesn't suggest it strongly though)




What percentage of individuals need to be immune to prevent a flu outbreak? (Herd immunity!!)





This is an AWESOME Act 1. My question: how can you model how the disease spreads as a function of # of handshakes/person and communicabity
