I think so. (But then, I'm an atheist so all the talk about "going to a better place" la, la, la, doesn't impress me very much). I want a party when I'm gone; everyone who knew me should get together and have a rip-snorting good time and share stories of all the stupid, embarrassing things … Read more
Wow - Both Jackyll and Zurastar gave truly inspired answers! (applause) To me, hell wouldn't be one specific place. There are lots of things that scare me, but two situations stand out for me. The first is probably one of those "it goes without saying" types of things: If I had to watch either or … Read more
Oh yeah - I'm a single mom on (gasp!) welfare (for those that just made "that face", I happen to be disabled, okay? Sheesh.), I am mentally ill (Major Depressive Disorder - the times I have been told to "just cheer up, exercise and eat right!" are beyond counting) and I'm overweight (not racist to … Read more
Justin Bieber is, in fact, Canada's most powerful biological warfare weapon - an improvement on the Celine Dione model released several years ago, and aiming for a younger demographic than our most successful weapon, Nickelback. Mwaaaaaaah-hahahahahahahaaaaaa .... Soon, soon, the world will be ours!!
Holy crap. Computers are used for anything and everything: They are used to monitor patients during surgery, for doing complicated mathematical analysis of data, for running traffic control centres in airports, for routing trains across countries, tracking shipments across countries and the world, tracking sales in a store and controlling inventory, for routing phone calls, … Read more
Hey there from Canada! Our total population is about 32,000,000 (2006 census says: 31,241,030).
If there was a god (as in the Christian God) and he is as described in the Christian Bible as being omnipotent and omniscient then I would hold him accountable for all the children on this planet who have ever suffered. And his punishment would be to feel their pain and confusion and guilt and … Read more
Is Anyone On The Drug Warfarin? How Are You Coping? My Doctor Is Prescribing It To Me. I Googled It And Found Some Scary Stuff!
Jenn, my mom was warfarin (coumadin) for over 30 years, after she had heart surgery and received an artificial heart valve. It is a blood thinner, and yes, it can cause problems if you are on too high a dose. The most important thing to do when taking this drug is to make sure that … Read more
Aw, man. I really don't know on this one. It's tricky because we have to have FTL flight before that otherwise "beaming" someone would take just as long as flying. I don't wanna step into a teleporter and die of old age before I come out the other portal. That would suck! I think we're … Read more
No, men cannot spread any kind of cancer. Nor can women. It is not an infectious disease. What can be spread through sexual contact is the Human Papilloma Virus, which is responsible for about 80% of all cervical cancers. There are a lot of different HPV strains, and all of them could be spread through … Read more
Hmmmm ... Fictional character I'd like to beat the snot outta. (Insert obvious Twilight joke here.) I think the only one that actually moved me to violence would be that stupid bitch from Clan of the Cave Bear. I was so infuriated by the ending that I threw the book against the wall and refused … Read more
The main reason that I am an atheist is that there is absolutely no reason to believe in any kind of deity at all. When you can explain to me why you don't believe in Zeus, you will understand why I don't believe in your god. Religion was originally created by people who were unable … Read more
Usually, religion (either what flavour, or lack of religion) doesn't come up that often when I'm just chatting with friends. About the only time I talk about being an atheist is when some obnoxiously smug Christian comes along and tries to tell me what I need in my life. Or what my child should be … Read more
If You Are Not Supposed To Worship False Idols Before The Lord, Where Does Jesus Fit Into This? Forget That, Where The Heck Do You Get Off Using The Cross As A Symbol/idol?
Well, it may not be a false idol, but it certainly meets the definition of an "idol". (Joke: (Q) Why is it a good thing Jesus wasn't killed in modern times? (A) Because if he were killed in modern times all the Christians would have to wear tiny little electric chairs around their necks! Hee … Read more
Leukemia itself does not cause hair loss. Hair loss is usually a side effect of the treatment being used. Many chemotherapy drugs cause hair loss, so does radiation treatment. Ask you doctor about any hair loss you may be experiencing.
You are here on Earth because this is where your ancestors happened to live. If you were on any other planet, the same would be true of that one. (And you wouldn't know any different, either. How do you know what planet you're on, after all?) There is no god. "God" is a concept created … Read more
This a very general question that unfortunately does not have any single answer. The prognosis (how long one is expected to survive) for people with "bone cancer" really depends on several factors: What kind of cancer is it? Is it the bone marrow that is involved in the cancer (meaning is it leukemia, multiple myeloma … Read more
