Super Woman

In searching for good clips of Rupert getting attacked by the mad pie man, I stumbled upon the biography of Louise Mensch, the woman who was questioning him at the time.

Holy fucking shit. Even though this woman is a member of the Conservative Party and therefore probably someone I'd disagree with politically, I have to give her some mad props.

1. She's married to the band manager of Metallica.

2. She's published 14 novels.

3. She's a member of Parliament.

4. She's a mother of three.

Can you imagine accomplishing all that shit at once?

Writer's Block: AIDS Walk

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?


There is no reason why any pharmaceutical company would ever want to make a cure for AIDS. Instead they'll create better and better long term treatment drugs that will allow people to live a normal lifespan, but they'll have to buy the drugs constantly.

Essentially, HIV will become sexually transmitted diabetes.
