In this video, world renowned author, journalist and philosopher Christopher Hitchens talks about Mother Theresa and the only thing that is known to cure poverty.

Additionally, "The results suggest that specific neural circuits necessary for discrimination between touch and nociception emerge from 35-37 weeks gestation in the human brain."

And finally the fallout of Roe v. Wade.

    Death is a decent cure for poverty.

    Can't toil or suffer when you're dead.

    I mean, aren't we all going to wallow in an eternity of pleasure after we die?

    I think the OP is saying that if Mother Theresa was aborted then poverty would be cured.

    Yep. Just get some more money.

    Also we can cure homelessness by getting a house. Just go get your house.

    The cure for not being able to do either of these things is to walk it off.

    Update: We confronted The Pope and read him his rights whereby he resisted arrest by applying force powers on the officers present and jumping all over the ceiling. However we managed to trick him into a cage by laying a trail of Ben & Jerry's ice cream sandwiches. The Pope is being transported to the Old Bailey courtrooms and will be charged and then hung drawn and quartered Saturday night before Doctor Who.

    Update: The Pope escaped custody and was last seen making a beeline for The English Channel. We do not have intelligence on whether he has access to a boat or not. He could just be a very strong swimmer. If he makes it to the coast we will lose him. We wont know where he's going or what he might do. Heaven help us all.
