This story sounds completely fabricated for attention. It contains a few hot trending topics that you know some members will gobble up, but the
science & storytelling are as if created by a 10 year old.
Ok bocaj417. Let me first say I am a father of a two year old and a 7 month old. One is potty training and the other is teething; and being girls, the
duty of fatherhood calls for me to give alot of my attention, emotion and sensitivity. I work five days a week and half on Saturdays. I only take time
off a day or two here and there to give my wife and daughters more than money.
My wife has a Masters in OSHA fighting Kung fu and works evenings. I don't have time to come on here looking for attention. I rarely have started
threads. I am forty years old. I went to the University of Kentucky and graduated with a BSc in Biology and minor in Chemistry. I thought I wanted to
practice medicine. I don't like pills and I rarely met a happy doctor as they told me they spent three-four days practicing medicine and one-two days
processing paper work. I worked doing research at Markey Cancer Center using retro-viruses as vectors to introduce the TNF(alpha) gene into tumors
who seemed to have a malfunctioning TNF(alpha) gene that would not activate apoptosis and I triggered the gene using hypoxia or radiation. I hated
writing grants. I hated pharma reps. I loved being in the ER with the surgeon who was recently in US News and World Report for his work in Maryland. I
hated being in the lab. I hated using nude mice to induce cancer so we can study in vivo. When we got close to completion the NIH yanked our funding.
I said see you to the medical world. If you want to know what I think of big medicine and big pharma look at my avatar.
If I wanted attention I could easily strike up a conversation with that crap with a person face to face in a nice martini bar in downtown Lexington
and Get attention and trust me everyone I meet has set with their eyes glued and their ears on. Especially, when we talk of retro viruses being used
because they are harmless and perfect for research and then you mention some other famous retro viruses used in research and then try and convince
them that HIV is a retro virus but it was never used on research until they discovered it in "gay men and drug users" in San Fran. What a smart virus.
Judgmental little sucker ain;t he?
If I wanted attention it would be for that. I do what I want now. I help everyday folks make their homes more beautiful, more efficient buy investing
in quality work and have more money in their pockets for whatever else they want to spend their money on rather than sitting at home in sweaters and
blankets because they cant afford rising fuel costs. I meet interesting people all the time in the comfort of their most secure spots, their home.
They welcome me. Besides, I get plenty of attention from my daughters and wife.
I come on here and read this site before I go to bed, well this first and FARK,COM for wit and humor then I go to bed. I believe there are a lot of
intelligent researchers on here. This woman said this to me almost verbatim and I could not wait to share it with serious researchers and so far there
have been positive, serious, thoughtful, discussions going on. Then you. You ever share anything?
What did you grow up and become? Oh yeah, a troll!
I will say this! The day they remove the nude mice and put trolls in labs I will be the first to submit my resume. But until then you will continue to
live and troll websites and forums and I and others will continue to give you attention. How does that attention feel?
