They did it the old fashioned way. Work, work, work, work, work ....For you kids, that was something people did in the Old Days before Facebook and Angry Birds.I'm not saying that Facebook is the reason that the Nineteenth Century was so much more productive than the Stupid Ages, but it was Facebook.And aliens, of course. After abducting thousands of hicks in the 1970s they gave up on Velcro and the microwave oven and invented the web and social media.They found our great human weakness with all those anal probes.And that weakness, as you may have guessed, was:
They are up the asses of most of the Rubes on the web.
Nature had her reasons for putting our brains up our asses. The head is too obvous a targe for attack. Just look how far the Puppeteers got with having their brains in their chests behind a study sternum, where brains belong.
Mad_Radhu: What is always awkward is when someone posts about some horrible thing, like baby seal rape, and the only option is to "like" it, so if you do hit that button it seems as if you like raping baby seals.
Aar1012: They also cured it with the thought of helping humanity as opposed to making millions in profit
Fluid: On the plus side, it makes you feel like you can influence these things.

Since1971: WRONG. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poliomyelitis#TreatmentThere's no cure for polio. There's a vaccine. So if you don't have it already and get vaccinated you won't get it. But it's not a cure. If you already have it, then you have it.I get what you're saying about social media, but please don't start attributing cures to diseases where there are none. I had a friend when I was a kid who had polio, he couldn't use his legs and there was no "cure". They eradicate it by vaccinating everybody and then it's not around anymore, hopefully.
brantgoose: Of course, when your brain is that close to both of your hearts, you tend to get worked up faster than a Tennessee Fainting Goat.Aren't I clever? I worked Tennessee Fainting Goats into a thread about polio and jokes about Facebook.I am the King of Digression!
