Ivan_and_Norma_Sweeney: How about, "to annoy?"
Revek: That is terrible! How many republican fetuses had to be used to let this one sinner live.
jaedreth: I have hereditary ALS, and the form I have kills in 3-5 years. I've had it for 11 years. So I've already been doing it, and without any medical help. Yes, my muscular strength is very low, and sometimes a cig is heavy. However, I pay attention to what my body wants, and I don't do any work I'm not up to doing. Exercise is essentially suicide for someone with ALS. So I take it as easy as possible. However, my will to live is extraordinary. I don't expect other people with terminal illnesses to be able to do what I've done. Get treatment. If they eventually come up with a cure, I'll consider it, if I haven't found a way to cure myself by then. However, the current treatment mentioned in this article doesn't provide any benefits that I haven't gained myself with extensive mental and spiritual work. I'm not going into any detail on how I did it, because I'd have to go into how I see Reality to do that, and I'd have to contradict almost every religion on the planet (excepting Shintoism), as well as contradict most known science as well (excepting Quantum Physics). So I won't.
NephilimNexusThe US block on stem cell research has let the rest of the world completely lap us..
Indubitably: To degrade
Revek: I figured as much but if they had of had their way stem cell research would have been banned.
signaljammer: If I dare invoke the term, ironically, Lou Gehrig may not have had ALS, the current thinking goes, but a similar genetic-based syndrome.
