It’s weird how some random human a while back decided to invent school and money and lemonade and be like “Here’s the answer to life, now go live it sonny boy”
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting over 35 million people worldwide. It is generally assumed that the clumping of beta-amyloid (Aß) protein causes neuronal loss in patients. Medication focuses on reducing Aß42, one of the most common proteins and the most harmful….

"What if all women were bigger and stronger than you? And thought they were smarter? What if women were the ones who started wars? What if too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos and no K-Y Jelly? What if the state trooper who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike was a woman and carried a gun? What if the ability to menstruate was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs? What if your attractiveness to women depended on the size of your penis? What if every time women saw you they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands? What if women were always making jokes about how ugly penises are and how bad sperm tastes? What if you had to explain what’s wrong with your car to big sweaty women with greasy hands who stared at your crotch in a garage where you are surrounded by posters of naked men with hard-ons? What if men’s magazines featured cover photos of 14-year-old boys with socks tucked into the front of their jeans and articles like: “How to tell if your wife is unfaithful” or “What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate” or “The truth about impotence”? What if the doctor who examined your prostate was a woman and called you “Honey”? What if you had to inhale your boss’ stale cigar breath as she insisted that sleeping with her was part of the job? What if you couldn’t get away because the company dress code required you wear shoes designed to keep you from running? And what if after all that women still wanted you to love them?"
"Learn how to say “no”.
Cram that word inside your mouth,
the whole thing, make sure all of it
gets in there. Let it walk on your tongue.
Practice with it in the mirror, push it
out, make faces, learn to love the salt
and bitter of it. Teach it to perch on your lip,
buzz, collect pollen from your sugary gloss.
Make it swarm between your cheeks."
"The historians have almost unanimously, and as a matter of habit, always written at the same time the names of Danton, Robespierre, and Marat, with respect to all revolutionary measures, and have inculpated Robespierre without any proof. [On the September Massacres] we would observe, in the first place, that he had before refused to become a member of the tribunal of August 1, and that he had exposed himself to strange calumnies simply from the respect for that principle of right which says that the same man ought not to be a denouncer, an accuser, and a judge. We will add that, with his immense reputation for integrity, it is not doubtful that he would have been a member of the comite de surveillance if he wished it, if he had not testified his repugnance to enter it. Now his name is never amongst those who successively composed the tribunal. He remained one of the two hundred and eighty-eight members of the commune without title, and without exercising any other functions than those of orator at the bar of the Assembly. These reasons are more than sufficient. It is true that in the month of August the Moniteur announces that Panis, Collot d’Herbois, Barriere (sic) and Robespierre formed the council of the ministry of justice; but it does not appear that that council was ever assembled nor that Danton consulted it upon anything."
