Medicine


I gotta figure out how to get this Tim And Eric album.  Anyway, read on for the list. I think I’m slowly learning what not to do to mess up the formatting with the new version of wordpress. (more…)

https://i1.wp.com/prospectknights75.org/images/used/garfield-coffee.jpgThe peer-reviewed journal research article behind the news stories about antidepressants working no better than a placebo. This link was going to disappear from New Scientist story (New Scientist wants a subscription), so I needed to save it. Speaking of mental health, apparently if you take Garfield out of Garfield, you get a comic strip about Jon Arbuckle: A deranged schizophrenic man who talks to himself. It’s twistedly funny. Check out this comedy gold: Garfield minus Garfield. And also speaking of crazy — you know the RIAA lawsuits against the very fans who fund them? These were for the artists, right? WRONG! No artist has seen a penny. Just like the karaoke licensing scam, the artists don’t actually get any of this money, so it’s foolish to support such licensing under the guise of “protecting the artists”. So here’s the article: RIAA Keeps Settlement Money, Artists May Sue. http://www.acm.vt.edu/~clint/download/imagedump/police-brutality-thumbnail.jpgStill, the RIAA isn’t as bad as Asshole Officers James Bryant and Chris Webley of Coquille — some guy broke a windshield, so, during the arrest, they broke his neck. He is now on a respirator for life. Of course the police think this is totally acceptable — after all, the guy swung at them! (Or so they say.) What this article doesn’t mention is that it’s more dangerous to be a fisherman, taxi driver, or garbage man, than it is to be a cop. They hurt people not out of self-defense, but unjustified paranoia. Douchebags!

I had no clue Sangria was not legal to sell in Virginia. Your kidneys will thank you if you read the cola article. Any good CartoonNetwork fan should be pissed off at B.E.T.  Fuck Nato’s recommendation for a pre-emptive nuclear war — we don’t need your goddamn war!  Also, the link where you can look up your name and see how many people in Georgia have your name is pretty entertaining.  I think it’s absolutely hysterical that somewhere in Georgia is someone named Clinterical.

Is the war on drugs won yet? Catnip repels mosquitoes TEN TIMES more effectively than DEET. (more…)

COMEDY: “I can has aborshin?” (go vote 5 cheezburgers for Lauren’s creation!) HAPPY NEW YEAR!: Man shoots gun to celebrate, cops go after wrong man, shoot bullets blindly into residence, hit 4 people. (In order to protect you from guns, we had to shoot you!) OTHER AUTHORITY BULLSHIT: Texas is the leader of putting innocent people in prison for life. Gee, their culture couldn’t possibly contribute to Guantanamo, could it? Charges against woman tasered while handcuffed dropped. Fresno cops who run over and kill people stay on duty. Cop hits cripple at crosswalk in violation of state law requiring yielding always — they charge the cripple and not the cop. (Police sure as hell don’t care about the letter of the law when it applies to them!) UK forces wrongly-imprisoned man to pay rent for his prison stay. (Only guilty people get free prison??) Baltimore police being sued for $100M for shoving money up a guy’s ass. FREEDOM OF RELIGION? NOT HERE: Parents may be forced to return adopted childbecause they are athiests! (Didn’t our forefathers fight for these rights? Oh yea, I forgot: We are in an era of erasing rights as fast as possible.) ALSO: CFRs=migraines? (more…)

Women no longer need to have periods. Douchebag officer Randy Cosens repeatedly tasers 13-year-old girl as she lay restrained on a hospital gurney. And check out how the cops torture people using these restraint chairs. (more…)

A non-toxic, non-psychoactive compound in marijuana may block the progress of metastatic breast cancer, according to a new study by researchers in California. Slashdot discussion HERE with many insightful comments, especially THIS ONE.
