Chicago gang violence - WTF fun facts
The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
My problem with what he says: Pharmaceutical companies.
Fuck Big Pharma, especially with genetic disorders such as ALS. Give my field money! Let Genetics heal you, you idiots!
Sorry, I feel very strongly about the waste of money that is pharmaceutical research on genetic disease.
I have hemophilia which is a genetic disease. Without pharmaceutical research, I’d have to receive routine blood transfusions and risk the contraction of diseases such as HIV/AIDs which there have been cases of prior to not even 10 years before I was born.
I understand the financial difficulties when it comes to a disease as uncommon as ALS. I understand the difficulty of curing/treating a genetic condition. But I don’t like the notion of researching a condition being a “waste of money.” I don’t think think anything spent towards making someone’s life better is a waste of money.
"Let genetics heal you."
Are you fucking stupid.
These 30 thousand people will be more likely to die sooner without that research money, which is what everyone is trying to avoid. The sooner a cure/vaccination/whatever the fuck gets invented to stop this disease, the sooner it will die out. Remember Polio? Remember never having it? Yeah. It’s great, innit? Imagine THAT being let run its course.
Genetics doesn’t just go “Oop! You have a disease! Let’s just fix that right away. White blood cells, attack!” If that worked, no one would have this disease. Generations with this disease either have to die before reproducing or not reproduce at all. Generations. This guy wasn’t diagnosed until he was 26. He could have fucked every fertile woman under the sun and had so many kids, passing on ALS to hundreds more branches of generations and families. Or even one kid! He probably won’t get it himself, but if that kid has two kids, those two kids will probably get it (due to generation skips) and there! Two branches! We know what happens from there, and I assume you’ve watched a zombie movie that explains the butterfly effect in a simple way. It would be almost impossible to just let this run its course. Unless you suggest committing mass genocide? Are you gonna ask anyone at even the smallest risk of being related to ALS to abstain from having any sort of hetero-vaginal intercourse? How well would either of those things go hmm?
Let me break all that down into small words for you:
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, POSSIBLY MILLIONS, WILL HAVE TO DIE BEFORE ALS CAN BE “HEALED BY GENETICS.”
So I heard a comment that gay (and “even” bisexual) men simply cannot play badass roles.
but I’m afraid
I have to.
Wait, why is RDJ in this list?
He says sexuality for him is a grey area, and basically it depends on who you talk to if he’s bisexual or not
same with Misha, i’m guessing?
^no Misha is openly bi
i think you are
who deserves to be on this list
