CowardlyLion: I might be wrong, but, if all that money is a) going to OHSU and b) going to cancer research, then it'd be going to the Knight Cancer Institute, which, if the website is accurate, has 143 researchers. Assuming (almost certainly incorrectly) that every single one of them was a principal investigator and had his/her own lab and that the funding would be split equally between them all, each one would get $7 million. Why not award massive research funding based on merit of the actual research/ideas and productivity of the researchers?/Oh, right, because you're using your excess cash as a masturbation aid//must be fun being impossibly wealthy///hopefully something good will come of it, despite the inefficiency
italie: Koodz: YoOjo: I thought it was accepted that we can't 'cure' cancer, we can only cure cancers.There's no magic wand that will eradicate all cancers, just some. Even if we make incredible progress against it we will never be on top, something to do with it mutating probably.^thisSaying your goal is a "cure" is a half step down from just going balls-out and declaring you're looking for the secret of immortality.Oh, very well then. Screw cancer and lets go golfing instead?
doglover: What a dickface.
