Big Pharma Dharma Law

A new medico-,legal statute
 
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,
against]

Big Pharma Dharma Law A new law to be passed that states that ANYONE can prescribe ANYTHING at any dosage for anybody, based on no apparent logical reasoning or proof of the need for said prescription. This way, big Pharma sales will skyrocket beyond their already ballistic levels, causing the debt bubble to finally, irrevocably explode, causing the whole world population to go into a state of mass hysteria, along with serious cases of PTSD, OCD, ADHD, ADD, DMD, Schizo- affective disorder, Bipolar2, Borderline Personality Disorder, Schizophrenia, Multiple Personality Disorder(each split- off personality having its own disorder), fucking Tourettes Syndrome cunt, Dystonia, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Epilepsy, Alcoholism, Trichotillomania, Misophonia(please stop typing the clicking is driving me crazy), and last and least, Autism, all of which will require further lengthy prescriptions of even more Big Pharma drugs, which will send sales into exponentially ballistic orbit, which may alert some extraterrestrial presence to humanity's loopy plight, and initiate an Alien landing to end all alien landings. . Hopefully said aliens will have a response to Big Pharma that will put it out of action at last. Oh crap I forgot to take my Diazeploricum bellincteri flouroxetinamidan ophericatonicaliphoderal again. Hence this nutzy post.

       Well, this is an excellent rant.   

       It's also an excellent idea - we don't need any new drugs, and we should just let people die as nature intended.   

       Are you, by any chance, [rcarty] or [jesushchrist] posting under a nom de gloom?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 20 2018
  

       Well now, Max, that would be telling. So I'll tell. Woof woof woof woof woof-woof woof woof-woof-woof. (I knew you'd understand that, Max).
Edie, Jan 20 2018
  

       Well, welcome or welcome back, whichever.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 20 2018
  

       Nah, he writes better than jhc. Bun for "fucking tourettes syndrome cunt"

       Does this law also apply to the Dalai Llama? What about farmers?
Ian Tindale, Jan 22 2018
  

       Only if they're from Parma.   

       [Eddie] has gone quiet. For that matter, has anyone heard from [JHC] of late?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 22 2018
  

       Well, presumably his father, since they're 33% (66% ? 50% ?) the same consciousness.   

       It depends where you stand on the monophysite - dyophysite controversy, although the Council of Chalcedon is generally considered definitive.   

       // Hopefully said aliens will have a response to Big Pharma that will put it out of action at last. //   

       Unlikely, since they're major shareholders.

       They ARE? Oh yes, of course they are! How could I miss the obvious. Yes. So called 'extra- terrestrials' are straight from the dark side. Just as all Big PHARMA (why does my iPad insist on CAPITALISING that?) is straight out of satan's ball bag. The thing that really gets me wondering though, is this: If one had a choice between Batman and the Joker, knowing, as one does, that Batman is practically 'doomed' to win at the end of the day, would one choose the Joker...? Or any other substitute for Batman, for that matter? (Riddler, Penguin, whatever one's tradition/upbringing/birth affiliation suggests)... Really? One would reject Batman, the obvious winner, in favour of some dodgy substitute that promises one an 'obligation free' pass into power and glory, simply because Batman requires the not so readily forthcoming qualities of integrity, honesty, humility and repentance? Really? That's what I think of anyone who chooses anything other than the light. To put it plainly: Jesus Christ. Capische? Lol! Lots of love Edie

       Is that your own testimony, or just the Diazeploricum bellincteri flouroxetinamidan ophericatonic aliphoderal talking?
pertinax, Jan 29 2018
  

       pertinax you biscuit! it must be the cookies talking... testimonies are for the byrds ...there is a time, turn, turn, turn...there is a season, turn, turn turn...
Edie, Feb 19 2018
  

       Well, at least it's not in - oh, my mistake.
normzone, Feb 19 2018
  

       In? IN? Is everybody IN? The ceremony is about to begin!   

       (I'm in thru the outdoor, in with the outcrowd, In for a penny, in for a soundcloud)
Edie, Feb 24 2018
  

       [Eddie], just out of curiosity, (a) do you believe that any new drugs are of any use at all? and (b) who do you think develops new drugs to the point of clinical application?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 24 2018
  

       // who do you think develops new drugs to the point of clinical application? //   

       Ahh, we know this one ... it's the Belgians, isn't it ? They're so desperate to find some advanced pharmacology to alleviate the misery of subsisting in the festering mire of their failed bicultural pseudostate that they're prepared to commit 68.37% of their GDP* to developing new neuroleptics.   

       *29.31% of their GDP goes on existing pharmacology; the remainder they squander on actually running their pathetic excuse for a country.

       …and cigars.
Ian Tindale, Feb 24 2018
  

       Hmm ... [MaxwellBuchanan], have you *actually* failed to notice the gender-significant single "d" of [Edie] (usually short for Edith), or are you just pretending to have failed to notice it, as a tease?
pertinax, Feb 25 2018
  

       Ah - I can see that it's time I gave my monocle a good clean. But I thought that, in another post here in this very disestablishment, we had deduced that [Edie] was more likely to be an Eddie than an Edie?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 25 2018
  

       Well, it is possible that he/she too is teasing us, in turn, which would be fair in the circumstances.
pertinax, Feb 25 2018
  

       Maxwell. For maximum wellness, a combination of SOME pharmaceuticals (mostly the newer ones, but the older ones also work for some) and a positive outlook, as well as a sound belief system, and a moderate amount of physical activity...AND something at least semi-fun to do ( like aiming cheeseballs at your neighbour's cup of coffee on the balcony of the flat one floor below you) are necessary ...oh and dont forget to eat lots of bananas or at least something off a tree sometimes, too. It's easy, mkay?   

       As to who develops new drugs...well...anyone with a pet rat and a bit of imagination can try. For example, my rats seem to be happy with a smorgasboard of mini-buffets of every kind of food available, except caviar and lobster, which I can't really afford at the moment, and some sawdust and a private place to mate, and fresh water. Oh and i think they like music, too. And because theyre kept on a shelf in the corner of the bathroom, they also get plenty of free human porn. How to synthesise all that into a drug is still a bit beyond me. Perhaps if I mix sawdust with an array of delicious fresh foods and some water, add a bit of rat muscaline, a page torn from a Hustler mag or suchlike, and some rat-sweat, and distill it all in a moonshine maker set to vibrate to the frequencies of Deep Purple, I'll hit the jackpot and turn out a drug that keeps - if not humans, at least rats - happy, content, placid, amused, semi-curious, affectionate, perfectly conditioned, bright-eyed, silky-tailed, and moderately active.... I think I'll call it HuskerPip* as that is a combination of my two delightful little rodents' names.

       //As to who develops new drugs...well...anyone with a pet rat and a bit of imagination can try.//   

       Don't be a twat, mate, at least no more than you can help.   

       Point one: it's the people with pet rats and imagination who _do_ already discover either new drugs, new drug classes, or relevant drug targets. They're called scientists, and I have worked with some of the best and brightest.   

       Point two: very few people with imagination and a pet rat have the approximately $1bn it takes to develop the drug, run it through tests in cell culture, then in large numbers of rats that have an analogue of the disease it's meant to treat, then through healthy human volunteers, then through a small cohort of patients, then through a larger cohort; and then to say "oh well" when, like most new drugs, it ultimately fails on grounds of efficacy or safety, and then go back and start all over again.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 01 2018
  

       I believe that they're called scientists.
normzone, Mar 01 2018
  

       Good point. Must have been a birdstrike.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 01 2018
  

       // go back and start all over again. //   

       Unless, of course, you've come up with a performance-enhancer that works well and WADA can't detect.   

       In which case, an unspecified but substantial reward probably awaits you - however, fame probably isn't going to be a part of it.

       It'll be interesting to see what happens when genetic enhancements for athletes become available. Short of compelling all athletes to produce their parents for DNA testing, there's not a lot you can do about it.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 01 2018
  

       "when" ?   

       We fear you are a trifle behind the curve, there.
