I also heard that discharging a firearm into my face will cause any and all pain to end. <img src=smilies/upeyes.gif>

The reason you had a cold is true; it is also true that the cold is merely a medical explanation for a larger chain of events, being reflected into material reality. It could also be said that there are demons who are disincarnate entities which manifest themselves as diseases; one can attack the problem using any paradigm they choose.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occam%27s_razorAll things being equal, when you deal with the unknown, the simplest explanation is the correct one.</a>.

What's more likely? Disincarnate entities choosing me as a target whereby manifesting themselves into material creatures within our dimension to compromise the immune system in my body, or I got a freaking cold from not washing my hands after pumping gas, my weakened immune system caused the population of bacteria in my eye to explode, thus giving my symptoms of itchy, tearing, uncomfortable eyes.

I have science to back up the latter.

Why hasn't anyone yet mentioned that the major drug companies are fucking people over? Paying off doctors and hospitals and all that stuff to push their latest and greatest snake oil, when there's tried and true stuff that does the exact same thing. For crying out loud, an antibiotic to treat an eye infection should ALWAYS be available as generic. Never pay more than $10 for that.

Go out of your way to ask for generics when you get prescriptions filled. There's absolutely no reason to be paying for 3rd tier medication when there is a generic available. It's the exact same goddamn thing.

You mean when they deduct advertising and research and development from their taxes and then add it in to the cost of the drug like the entire amount came right out of their pocket then add an outrageous markup to the cost also later on to pay for all the executive and sales bonuses and stock options. <img src=smilies/cwm11.gif>
