Out of the Blue

For some reason I thought all the recent Titanic hype was leading to the 100th anniversary of the ocean liner's sinking today, but I wasn't paying enough attention, as this was actually on the 15th. This shows how much less obsessed with this I am than about anyone else in the world, because I didn't really need to hear any more about this in the first place. Maybe the centennial will finally put the story to watery rest. Today is still a commemoration of course, as 4/20 is like stoner Christmas, but if there's anything that gets more than its share of exposure all year round, it's the use of 420 in gamertags etc, so maybe we can just sink that reference while we're at it?

...corruption in the FDA and how much big pharma overcharges you for old treatments because there's no money in innovation or cures.

thats the other part of the problem with cancer treatment. after 75 years with an average of 4.5 billion dollars annual budget the national cancer institute has nothing to show except quality assurance studies of chemicals submitted by drug companies. no cure, no progress... nothing. its work is duplicated by the CDC, NIH and get this the DOD. if govt has to immediately shut down a worthless institution it should be the national cancer institute.

You can't just throw money at everything to solve it, some things are just that complex. You talk about cancer as if it was a simple ailment cured through enough mindshare and money. Cancer isn't just one thing, it's a broad range of malignant cell growth issues that span several different diseases. It has numerous causes and attacks many different organs in the body, it is a very complex thing to simply cure when we don't even fully understand everything about it yet. Do some research about it because you are incredibly uninformed.
