Are cancer rates up, or are people living longer and therefore getting cancer when 50 years ago they would have died of something else before cancer could have been detected? 

I came close to death several times when I was younger, including double pneumonia when I was 15.  Had I been so infected before penicillin, I would certainly have died.  Now, at 78, I've had 3 kinds of cancer, systemic infections with MRSA and klebsiella..  All these after age 65.  What was the average life expectancy 50 years ago?

(spell check wants me to change klebsiella to kielbasa.  Yep, it's very useful at times  :shocked:)

I always figured the reason Mother Nature keeps us humans around is to gather the dead wood and burn it (to cook and keep warm) to prevent forest fires...  Since we stopped doing that, I figure she has no more use for us...

That is not what the media wants you think. They try for mass hysteria, like it will happen to us all and we all have to be fearful.
Oh yea, they do that about every story where someone gets hurt.

Unfortunately that is true... Bad news sells.

I figure there are two things that require IMMEDIATE action: robbing and swarming.  If they are clustered on a tree, you need to collect them.  If they are being robbed you need to stop it.  Everything else can wait until tomorrow...

I have been using for honey for the last couple of years. Every time I feel a cold coming on I take a table spoon of honey. Within an hour the sore throat, sneezing or cough is gone.

The best way to fight terrorism is to simply not be terrified. As a statistic... being killed by a terrorist is not likely to happen.

I think this is third home invasion in the last 2 months where the perpetrators end up with lead poisoning. Apparently the one before this had too heavy of a dose. Funny thing, I think he only got 2 doses, not 12.
