I, for one, look forward to visiting what's left of the UK after its economy collapses and paying third-world prices.

That's about right. I don't even consider it a middling probability, but what do I know? I thought Richard Nixon was going to be the worst president for the rest of my life.

Going for the Godwin award but it's been on my mind lately. Since I heard about the camps that is. Like. Is this how it was with Germany? I feel terrible about the situation but I'm aware I can do nothing of significance. I'm just keeping my head down and finishing school. Is that how they felt? I'...

Generally, though, if the place doesn't have ...

I hope for the court's sake the gas they pumped into the glass box was colorless and odorless. Otherwise, the coroner will have to go with the differential "committed suicide by stabbing himself 27 times in the ambulance" cause of death.

But you’re saying you don’t see how they could determine if the treatment was effective. At least one way is by the difference in physiological signs. And yes, all the things you mention is why Alzheimer’s treatments are ridiculously expensive to run. Because they have to span a decade or more befo...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Yeah, I'm not saying animal trials would be useless. Medical pharmaceutical research is fraught with all sorts of problems and in the case of Alzheimer's the problem is complicated by the fact that there are so many other causes of memory loss, dementia, etc. of one sort or another in older people. ...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

I can see how animal trials may be of value in determining the possible harm of potential Alzheimer's drugs, but I'm a bit unclear what use they could be in determining their effectiveness. Moreover, given that some level of informed consent is required in human trials of any sort, it's unclear to m...

Tbh, after all the hype, I found it good, but not a great as advertised.

Ho hum. "No controlling authority...." "No evidence that I did it only because ...." We all know there's no pettiness too shallow for Trump to shrug off, but this isn't even a side-show example of that pettiness or of lackies covering up their lackitude after the fact. It's just business as usual.
