    There go my plans for the evening.

    All this time I thought it just grew hair on your palms and made you go blind.

    Well at least he raves (previous to last image).. Too bad the image shows no glow sticks

    Wow.. I thought that only kittens died.. now I guess some kid dies a horrible death everytime. It sure sounds something like a VD or TB but surely not masturbation! It's healthy!

    It's lies like this that have been "handed" down to us.

    I usually tell my boss I am coughing up blood when I don't feel like going into work.

    When I started reading I thought about TB. Toward the end I was recalling a favorite treatment for illness during the 1700's and 1800's -- mercury. Coughing up blood, losing hair and teeth falling out would all be consistent with mercury poisoning.

    I wonder what Janet Reno would think of this.

    I'm 39. Understandably my hands are calloused, but how did I manage to avoid the pustules, bloody pflegm and death by 17?

    Well, see you gotta wash your hands before and after. Especially if you live in a time before antibiotics.

    Probably didn't have the courtesy to buy himself dinner beforehand. I say the jerk had it coming.

    Well back in those days... pregnancy and periods where also labeled as "diseases"... Boy have we gotten smarter in the last 200 years... although.... this does not actually include all (I bet there are people in rural communities that still believe that mastrubation and pregnancy are diseases...)

    I don't know where I got thsi quote but is something like: "Individuals can be smart, people are dumb crazy and unpredictable."

    Actually, American work-place policies still tend to treat pregnancy as a disease: In place of good maternity leave policies, a lot of women take sickleave or get time off for their "disability". And, really, the American attitude tends to assume that pain and suffering are "normal" for a woman's period. To my mind, that is categorizing it like it is a disease -- and the "Cure" is not to make sure women have healthy periods. No, because the period itself is viewed like it is The Problem, when the "female troubles" get troublesome enough, they routinely perform hysterectomies -- which is similar to castration, in that the ovaries provide hormones which regulate the sex drive, etc, similar to what testicles do for a man. You can bet they will never casually start telling men (about their testicles) "You are done making babies, so you don't need those anymore. Let's just relieve you of the burden of putting up with the hassle of having them." (the way they say that to women about their uterus and ovaries)

    Where do you get this weird idea that we have come so far? Is it really that much better in Chile?

    It actually sounds like some of the crap the current administration is forcing schools to use for modern sex education. It certainly isn't any less accurate than what the gop demands in its presently mandatory "Abstinance only" campaigns.

    Good thing we have advanced over the centuries.

    yup, what he said. But I just took a test on Netscape, I'm suppose to live to 73. No questions about playing lacrosse.
