If you subtract like 8 years from all of those, and then reverse the progression, that's me

Although I admit to being dumber now than I was at like 8. Just less impressionable now


Also yeah, I was into politics around kindergarten, before anyone questions my math. Always read the paper, watched the news, and told political jokes to adults

Basically my life is like Doc Gooden's career or how Mike Trout's will turn out

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Karak's FFB Korner

horrible of course

everyone is aware and allocating such an insane amount of money to breast cancer research is a huge waste (all the research worth doing is already funded)

Yeah my thoughts exactly

Seems like pancreatic cancer awareness month or something would be a much greater marginal benefit

Do we know for sure all the money raised goes only to breast cancer research and not to cancer research overall?

Accoding to wikipedia, Susan G Komen allocates it's money thusly:
Research (20.9%)
Public health education (39.1%)
Health screening services (13.0%)
Treatment (5.6%)
Fund-raising costs (10.0%)
Administrative costs (11.3%)

Right, I know what you meant. How can 1) That possibly be true and 2) can you know it's true

Pretty sure breast cancer gets lots of monies already

It's mainly self-serving penis whacking designed to make people feel good about themselves

I thought Penn State discovered the cure to cancer? Why do we need more research at all?

Further studies revealed that anal penetration is NOT an effective cure for cancer

No question other cancers need research money now more than ever.

Someone had a post last year, might have been in the haters thread, where they said "There are few cancers I could be MORE aware of at this point than breast cancer" and I agree with that. Pancreatic cancer is one we desperately need to allocate resources towards because it's such a death sentence right now.
