Saw a cure for cancer

The first clip is a factual newscast about a miracle drug that is potentially a cure for cancer.

I'll say that again....

A CURE FOR CANCER.

However, greedy cunts in the higher echelons of pharmaceutical companies probably WON'T invest in it as they won't make money due to the drug not being patented.

I'll say that again...

WON'T INVEST IN IT AS THEY WON'T MAKE MONEY.

The second is a fictional clip from the horror movie Saw 6 where a medical insurance chief executive is forced to choose who lives and dies in one of Jigsaw's karmic "traps". The six people on the carousel are from the CEO's crack team of little cunts who deliberately try to find errors in medical insurance applications to avoid paying out should someone try and cash their premiums when they become terminally ill.

The CEO has to choose 2 people to live and 4 to die. If he doesn't choose, then all six die.

Cue much pleading and cries of "I'm pregnant!" and "My parents will pay you!!"

Not sure which clip I like best.

  1. Enough of the business-bashing rhetoric Lance!

    If GOVERNMENT cared, at all, about those with cancer then they would GET OUT OF THE WAY of the pharma companies and REMOVE the massively expensive regime of testing and licensing they erected to preserve the revenue stream of existing patents.

    Like the woman in the first clip says, why would any business spend nigh on 100 MILLION to develop a compound that cannot be protected against IP theft and cannot generate enough profits to recover the development cost?

    If it were this good then why isn't the Canadian GOVERNMENT funded healthcare system running up with wodges of taxpayer cash?

  2. I prefer "no cure for cancer" by Bill Hicks. Far more insightful and truthful :-)
