    Not cool, bro. Not cool at all.


    When they brought the machine in to function for the lungs of the 13 year old girl, I got a little shaken up.

    :c

    I thought about going into industrial safety work, but then it quickly occured to me that if there was something really bad that happened, that I'd have to be one of the first people to see it.

    It's likely scientists have discovered a number of cures for various diseases, but big insurance corporations and big pharmaceutical companies don't want you to know. That's when funding for research of a particular disease suddenly gets pulled.

    Remember the story about a year ago that doctors were able to cure a baby of HIV? Have you heard anything since then?

    Did anyone see Frontline "The Choice"? It details the crumbling of America.
