This is probably why i keep reading of the same "breakthrough" every five years or so.
 
This is why you shouldn’t believe that exciting new medical study

"...on average — only 3,000 of 50,000 new journal articles published each year are well-designed and relevant enough to inform patient care. That's 6 percent."

"... there have been more than 200 failures of supposed cancer breakthroughs in recent years."

"...an estimated 85 percent — or $200 billion — of annual global spending on research is wasted on badly designed or redundant studies."

Never mind the length, feel the thickness! :)

Actually, I think I'd rather have penis cultured meat, than real cow. But but but how do you decide if it is kosher or halal?

Does this mean that an intimate dinner of braised sciatic nerves would make for a great date night?

“Collectors love this one. Adam Lanza’s mum had this in her collection too. Until he took this and several other guns and killed her, then went down to Sandy Hook and killed six teachers and 20 kids.

“Twenty little kids, gone — like that.”
UNITED States gun-control activists have opened a firearm store in the middle of New York City, filling it with second-hand guns that have been used to kill children as young as nine months to make a point about the dangers of gun use.

I love the idea they are realizing: Make the fantasy feeling of what owning a gun hooked to real situations, to real people, make it hooked to real death..... the fantasy tends to wilt.

I do wonder how many people buy a gun as a tool, and how many have a fantasy about how it is used, and what for.........

A bit like most erotic fantasies. If such a fantasy is to be made real, it takes alot of care and thought and attention to do that. Most fantasies are best wen they stay that, because they are unbound by the actual physical realities.

I think i'd rather prefer the term on shoulders of giants, or development.

Anybody who has read any basic ancient history knows that various civilisations benefitted from others around their time. At least thru trade if not war.

But i didnt know about christian themes being borrowed from ancient egyptian deities. I did know the holy trinity etc was of greek origin; nomos, logos, cosmos, etc with apostle peters (greek) teachings heavily influencing christianity. Or was it paul?

But up till now i thought both jesus and mohamed did their apprenticeship in the far east, and got Vedic influence. Not egyptian. But wbo knows perhaps the vedic line of faith was influenced by ancient egypt? After all theres a huge time delta between christianity (jc) and egyptian faiths. But vedic faiths are still around.

The other chronological connection is judaism, which probably began around when egyptian faiths were at their turning points.

After five years of #Obamacare, too many Americans are suffering. They deserve to be heard, and today I shared their stories.
