I accidentally watched the Days of Future Past trailer again, and now there’s semen everywhere.
What do 11 year old girls like?
This is for a Christmas present, not picking them up, in case you were wondering.
Someone just said “Ah well, you’re only human” to me, and I got REALLY offended.
Looking to take advantage of Cyber Monday and get some Christmas shopping done. Don’t really have much to worry about other than a gift for my family back home in Ireland.
I’m talking about a “family” gift, one decent thing that
all most can enjoy. I’ll sort out individual things myself.
One year I got a Wii, which was basically a good gift for everyone but my mom. Another year a coffee maker, which was good for everyone but my little sister. I don’t mind if it doesn’t cover everyone, I can make up for that with an individual gift.
We’re talking about a mom, dad, 20 year old brother and 11 year old sister here.
Get on it.
For those that don’t know, 23andme is a company that you send your DNA and they let you know your ancestry as well as some risk factors for diseases and things like that. Currently the FDA is trying to shut them down saying that if consumers find out they have certain genes they might make health decisions based on the test. Personally I don’t think the average person is stupid enough that if they find out they have an increased risk for breast cancer for example they’ll go get a double mastectomy or if they find out they have a lower risk of lung cancer they’ll start smoking 4 packs a day, but apparently the FDA does. I’m hoping to get a test in before it is no longer offered and probably won’t be offered again for anywhere near as cheap.
Literally one day after I made this post about 23andme last week, the FDA story came out. I was initially worried, so did some research about what their issues are. It honestly just looks like the FDA are worried about a private company doing something like this without them having control over it. 23andme are only guilty of one thing: Not bending to FDA’s obsessive poking at private researchers.
The FDA then disguise their obtrusiveness with nonsense about how these DNA results “will lead people to make dangerous health decisions”.
Not to mention that 23andme is backed by Google. You don’t fuck with anything backed by Google.
Seriously, if you have $99 to spare, it’s worth doing. See my linked post above for more info.
Fuck me, it’s December.
