Hey, look at this guy. This is Albin Sabin. He's a bad motherfarker. His work on Oral Polio Vaccine contributed to it's near eradication in third world countries. Check your shiat. You know why he's such a bad ass?

That's right. MOTHERfarkING SUGAR CUBES, biatch. His vaccine didn't require refrigeration, and even better, didn't have a needle involved. You ate the shiat.

Yeah, I tried some of his so-called "vaccine" back in the 90's.  Didn't get polio, but I woke up three days later in a dumpster outside a Phish concert.  farking quack.

UsikFark: Mid_mo_mad_man: hardinparamedic: Mid_mo_mad_man: Your partly correct. Viagra does pay the bills. It also subsidies research into cures for all sorts of conditions.

Viagra was also developed as an orphan medication to treat persistent pulmonary hypertension, a rare and life threatening complication in newborn infants. It wasn't originally intended as a boner pill. It was during Phase I and II Human testing that it's "side effect" of raging hard on was noticed.

It's also useful with alitude sickness and adapting to the thin air.

Boner pills on mount Everest?

It's also useful for lower extremity burns.  It doesn't help heal the burns any faster, but it keeps the sheets off your legs at night.
