Drug companies have no intrrest in researching cures.

Drug companies are for-profit. While there is obviously immense profit in providing treatment for maladies, there is a very limited profit available in cures.

Thus, drug companies do not have any intention of curing anything. It would be bad for business, you see.

I really don't think "I dislike people of different colors" is tantamount to "I fuck little kids." Is that always your go-to comparison?

If so, then I have to ask... what the fuck is wrong with you?

Anyway, there's a world of difference between a racist asshole who never harms anyone and a fucking pedophile. Just like how there's a difference between people who do actual good in the world and douchebag SJWs who spend all day attacking other people on the internet for having a different viewpoint.

Because doctors never fuck up, do they? Explain that to the half million American hurt and the quartet million killed every year by medical negligence.

I'm no fan of cops, but when it comes to killing people who don't deserve it, they don't hold a candle to our medical professionals.

People with confluent majors end up working side by side in the field.

I'm guessing it has something to do with that 80 some odd hours a week that a number of CS workers are forced into. When you have to spend 80% of your waking hours working, it kind of limits your dating pool.
