    I think about that all the time. What is money? At sums like 1b it isn't even real, someone could put it up. It infuriates me that a cure is a reality, but we have to grovel and beg congress for scraps. The human heart is seriously misaligned.

    not just congress. the fortune 400 list came out the other day. this list is the 400 riches ppl in the usa. if i had $1 billion, i would not make the list. add up all the money from this group, easily over $1 trillion.

    We can't, all our credit cards are maxed out. Maybe we should ask China to extend our credit limit.

    they have to care first. the sci community needs to get this Gilligan "they will rescue us" mentallity out of our heads. nobody cares about us. the Everett story proved that.

    If "nobody cares," who do we send the billion dollars to to help us? The researchers, I believe are doing the best they can with the resources they have to help find a cure. We just need to be patient. We are not the only ones who are in need. I understand your frustration though.
