Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Yo, Adam, check this shit out!

Found this in the Washington Post and thought of you:

When It Comes to the Heart, Treatment Varies

Women remain far less likely than men to get basic medical care that could significantly reduce their risk of heart attacks and strokes, leaving thousands unnecessarily vulnerable to the nation's leading cause of death, researchers reported today.

Despite clear evidence that women are as prone to heart attacks as men, new studies show that many doctors fail to treat them as aggressively as men, ordering far fewer tests and taking far fewer preventive measures, such as prescribing daily aspirin pills, diet and exercise regimens and drugs to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Thought you'd like to know, given your interest in complex multi-faceted arguments.

As a side note: fuck me, it's early. (Which is not to be confused with, "Kiss me, I'm Irish.") Would someone explain why I'm getting up before the crack of dawn specifically so the Red Cross can punch holes in my arm?

I'm fairly sure it's because I'm stupid.

Hmmmm... that's true, but those ingrown toenails are caused by ill-fitting shoes. If women would just stay barefoot and pregnant, this whole problem would go away.

My god... I think I just became a Republican.
