    They can't test for prions.

    I didn't know what those were, but now I somewhat do

    you'd think if someone was going to manifest CJD they'd do so within a decade?

    I dunno

    I read a terrifying article that suggested our beef slaughter practices here in the states are terrible and that many (like, a percentage above 10%) of Alzheimer's related deaths are actually prion related damage to the brain.

    -edit-

    I hope the article was full of shit but...

    Anyway, goodnight chat

    In The Lancet (June 2006), a University College London team suggested that it may take more than 50 years for vCJD to develop,

    well huh

    my brain is a time bomb!

    I think you might find this amusing

    so the singapore anti-corruption bureau tried to nail down a senior civil servant for receiving oral sex in exchange for business favours

    in singapore law, it's not necessary to prove, in corruption cases, that any favours were actually given. if it is proven that there was some unexplained 'gift', the onus is on the defendant to prove that it was a legit gift and not a bribe: there is a presumption of guilt, not innocence. this is a longstanding legal standard created to fight guangxi networks in the old days

    but

    their main witness changed her story on the stand to that the senior civil servant forced her to give him oral sex

    whoops, now it's assault instead of corruption, and a much higher standard of evidence is required! And, you know, what with changing her story and all, the witness is unreliable. Out the case goes!

    Where did you give blood that you got a milkshake?

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
