(Bloomberg)   Scientists continue to go down the list of things in the world and study them to see if they save us from the flu. Right now, they're on "caterpillar ovaries"   (bloomberg.com) divider line 29

Side effects include growing moth balls.

Have they checked Larks' tongues? Otters' noses? Ocelot spleens?

Wash your hands, don't touch your face, don't share food stuffs (That includes beer pong, you most-at-risk demographic you) and tell your employees to stay home for as long as it takes to get better. In fact, pay them to stay home. And schools must explicitly

Problem solved.

Have you ever smelled moth balls. If so, how did you get their little legs apart. /Lame

That would be an improvement compared to my natural ones...


WHUT?!?!?!?!??

Are they going in order? They're only on "C" subset "O"??? What if the cure is a zebra zygote?

do they coat the ovaries in chocolate to make them go down easier?

You're a jerk, Caterpillar Ovaries. A real kneebiter.

Usually, when I'm sick, I just light a few candles, take my old musty books of forgotten lore, place the sacrificial victim to the stone altar, and offer her/his soul to the Great Old Ones so I get better.

I usually don't, and the voices are maddening, but hey, it's the thought that counts!.

At least they are up to the "C"s already

Why, yes. I am a Molecular Biologist. Seriously, it amazes me some of the crap these guys think of to study also.

cretinbob: At least they are up to the "C"s already

No, it's much more dire than that. They're already down to the "O" as clearly they're categorized as "Ovaries-caterpillar."

Actually, since I started working for a company that regulates the pharmaceutical industry (the industry part, not the research and development part) I've learned that they develope medicine in all kinds of unusual ways. For instance there was one medicine that's affective ingredient comes from pig intestines. Another flu medication is incubated in eggs too. It's pretty interesting actually.

Nothing like giving a hot ovary injection...

...wait...did I say that out loud?

Eggs are commonly used for vaccines. I remember doing experiments with it in Virology and Immunology lab in College....but honestly it slips my mind why. Too lazy to google it at the moment. Plus, Im wasting time on fark. :)

My money is on pig farts.

I have noticed a special doublespeak re: supplies of H1N2(oops, not yet) H1N1 vacc. Designed to confuse the issue of lots of demand now whipped up, but supply has vaporized.

There is no reported delay in manufacture of stuff. Delivery is the problem and reason supplies are not available to the public.
Why?
Delivery has so far been largely diverted to all those VIP and MeMe First demands that were not considered when scheduling was originally made. This is not a WII for Christmas that is backordered. This is real life/death stuff.

You knew pricks would divert the chit. Why not plan adequately? Why not give credit where credit is due and explain the asshats that have demanded first?

What if it is "down to" and all those letters were dead ends?

oh nos, what if

Energy that could be focused on trying to cure cancer, or aids, or diabetes, or blindness, or why people fark fatties....

But not, they put this energy into trying to cure/prevent what amounts to a minor inconvenience in most people's lives. I'm sorry, but if you die from the flu, you weren't cut out for this whole "living" thing.

Get some rest, drink some OJ, get plenty of fluids, and go see your doctor if the symptoms get worse. It's the farking flu, not ebola.

Sounds like a "Big Pharma" conspiracy. They are all out to just make money, and don't care how many babies die because of toxic caterpillar ovaries.

Limiting the competition.

if they are doing it alphabetically, then donkey dicks is next

There isn't anything really weird about this.

Insert gene into vector. Insert vector into cells. Cells produce protein.

Big farkin' deal.
 
2009-11-19 06:50:15 PM  
Oh sure not enough testing so its not safe for the public...

Well they are giving H1N1 Vacc to pregnant woman and it has not been fully tested yet either...

The Govt is a dumbass

So I guess Aardvark aasholes and Baboon balls had no effect...
