Because almost ALL Doctors and Hospitals use some form of Windows to keep track of everything. The worst part is no one is managing these Computers, that means no updates or anything. Nine times out of Ten they are even using a version of Windows no longer supported.

I'm an advocate for switching these people over to custom versions of Linux or similar. Windows shouldn't be used for critical tasks, heck even Microsoft admits that. What's worse is that these systems usually rely on WiFi that is NOT encrypted. I'm not making this stuff up, I've been in enough Doctors offices and Hospitals to know this, look next time you go.

You must be joking. With all the paid holidays, vacations and numerous other ways to avoid work that Americans have (assuming you're American) it shouldn't be any problem at all for you to make time to go Fishing or any other activity.

What next, Americans demanding $30 an hour to flip Burgers and 5 Hour work weeks? Geez

I figured, with all those side effects, nobody would even go near those drugs. I mean, really, are you willing to try that new drug on your toenail fungus with a risk of death attached? What that means is that people during the drug study actually died, a confirmed side effect.

In any case I think we need to stop with all these sex pills and nonsense drugs and put that money in to treating or curing life threatening illnesses. Aspirin and Penicillin were revolutionary and more beneficial than any of their very minor side effects; we need drugs like those.

I don't know if it's the same old KKK, but if it is, Anonymous just dug it's grave for at least a few members. The KKK has/had links to various questionable and legal organizations that could "Take care" of people. And it's well known that some Politicians and Law Enforcement are members. Anonymous is feeling like the masters of the virtual universe it seems and now real life threatens to literally, burn down their Tree House.

You know what they say about playing with fire and I know I am inviting a joke here =p
