Using a statistical model based on network theory, scientists at MIT's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering have created a ranking of the top 40 U.S. airports in order of their ability to spread a disease that originated there. Leading the list: New York's JFK International, followed by Los Angeles, Honolulu, San Francisco, Newark, and Chicago's O'Hare and Washington's Dulles International Airport.

How long is 20 seconds? Long enough to sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to yourself.
Note: Never, ever sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" out loud in a men's room.
If you must sing, sing the "Now I Know My A-B-C's" song. It's essentially the same song anyway, and you'll seem like a badass while you're singing it.
