An astonishing experimental therapy; the virus, rendered harmless to its host, used tumor cells to reproduce the way it always does: by reproducing itself inside of them and forcing them to explode and die. By giving her a massive dose of the vaccine, the viruses attacked all the tumor cells at once, eliminating the cancer.

why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain

no one say anything

On Steve Hickey and anal sex

This jerk is getting a ton of press coverage for his “medical” objection to homosexuality and gay marriage, saying that anal sex is harmful (his stance on same-sex marriage between lesbians is unclear, but presumably he’s okay with it? Somebody should ask).

He’s also trotted out a subtler and more insidious attack on homosexuality, referring to it as a “genetic breakdown” like cancer. It’s insidious because it has a grain of believability, because homosexuality doesn’t seem to be an advantageous condition, in evolutionary terms — it predisposes the individual to relationships where reproduction is impossible. So why does homosexuality exist? Maybe it’s just a genetic problem, like cancer?

The fact is that we don’t know why homosexuality exists. But we do know for sure that it can’t be a genetic error, because homosexuality is far more common than any genetic disorder. Something like 2-4% of the population is homosexual, but individual genetic disorders are vanishingly rare, seldom cracking more than 0.1% of the population. In fact, at 4% of the population, homosexuality is almost as common as all genetic disorders combined.

Whatever the evolutionary advantage of homosexuality is, there must be one, because otherwise evolution would have weeded it out a long, long time ago.
