Have you ever had shave ice? http://www.rachelleb.com/images/2007_03_matsumoto_shave_ice.jpg Definitions of Shave ice on the Web: •A snow cone is a paper cone filled with crushed ice topped with flavored sugar water. Due to the popularity of snowballs, many snow cones are now made like snowballs with shaven ice and a sugar syrup and the terms are often used interchangeably.

The real world. The internet is cyberspace. We look at it through computers, and other terminals or nodes. They are like the bodies to our minds, the hardware and software. In the real world, we have wetware brains, supported by bodies made of meat and bone etcetera. Thus the analog of cyberspace is meatspace.

Don't feel bad about the water, our is made using arsenic, and then when they put it in the tap, they add more to it. Plus the calcium deposits of over use within the pipes that are running it. Some people in this country actually have flammable tap water. Gross.

We would cost you millions of dollars, and thousands of pints of blood. To put it frankly. Invading Ireland is like stamping on a massive flaming bag of dog poo. It seems like a good idea at first, but you just can't get rid of the consequences. Ireland's flag means enough in that it is the flag of Ireland. I see little to be desired in America. It looks to melike a desolate wasteland. Where the roads are paved with dirt, and the people either humourless or ignorant, or some vile amalgamtion of the two. Ireland is, to me, the greatest nation on Earth. Undefeatable, indestructable, born out of chaos, yet thrives on malcontent. Poison is our water.

Sammie will rule you! In all ways than one haha. And I'm sure you won't complain. That's not true. Ireland's flag will mean much if it takes to my country. UK may look down on them but I'm sure here we don't. To be honest though I never gave much dang thought to Ireland before this year. Or that side of the world in general. It was all about New Orleans all day every day. haha. What would you do if the US claimed Ireland as a new state? (just go with the flow and answer honestly sheeesh Dorch..haha)

You can't get better at writing than me. Simply because of the fact I never do any bloody writing :P I fail to see how I was being cocky though. Many of the ideas I propose are other peoples'. I certainly didn't discover cancer, anyway. My theory on writing things like that 'breakdown' as you put it are born of the techniques of article writers who came before me. I was merely pointing out that the best way to be a good writer is to read. And people who write well are revered as smart, or powerful, even if they are neither. I'm certainly not a genius. Not yet, anyway.

Not so much for an example of good articles, (although they are mostly good) but to study clean, effective, efficient prose.

Same brainwaves. Only thing is Dorch is the smarter brainwave. That's exactly what I was feeling. I can't say I was thinking that because then I'd have to have had thought that word for word and I didn't but you really did put it perfectly!!! wow you're so friggin smart. And is it really a common thought? I loved the movie Matrix haha

No, I do see what you mean. It's a common thought. It's even referenced in The Matrix. I'd say we are a cancer, rather than the AIDS virus, because we share common traits with cancer. We replicate too much, we live too long, we perform functions which do not help the system (in our case the planet), we take up resources and utilise them in ways which damage the system. And we kill what feeds us. However, cancer, unlike a virus, doesn't set out to kill the body. It doesn't even know it exists, because it can't think, even on the basic level that HIV does. HIV is insidious, it actively tries to kill the immune system, it 'knows' what it is doing. And it doesn't operate by simply eating away at the body's resources, or getting to big, it weakens the body, survives off it's dying breath, if you like, and spreads itself contageously, in an attempt to kill as many people as possible, to propagate itself as easily as possible. We never set out to destroy the world, we just do it because we are like a malignant tumour, which continues to grow and grow, until there is no room left. What we need is to make ourselves benign, by surrounding out expanding population with a 'capsule' of population control, and sustainable resource management. Only that way will we be able to co-exist with the planet, the same way a benign tumour can co-exist with the body, although even benign tumours are removed.

WOW. I'm gonna print that out and show it to my 8th grade teacher mr.hendricks and show him, He can eat it! That really was the best break down i ever read before. thanks DORCH. >.< !woot woot But it is what it is. Becuase if you look at it in a bigger scope. I feel like we're the planets disease and We're, well not cancer but HIV, Because it keeps throwing things at us to try and make us die off so it can be healthy again but we grow immune to it and use its own resources and evolve. Do you follow where i'm going? Idk I'm having a weird moment.

Cancer isn't caused by the body making unnecessary tissues, or organs that aren't there. It's made when the replication process of cells (which happens constantly, at millions of replications every day) goes wrong. Basically, genes mutate, and parts of the genetic code which kill cells (autotermination via the lysosomes [suicide bags] is common.) to make way for new ones, and limits the growth of tissues malfunctions, creating 'immortal' cells (cells which don't kill themselves like they should) which don't stop replicating. You can imagine how this is bad. One cell makes two, two makes four, four makes eight, and so on and so forth. The tumour grows like a colony of bacteria, or a baby in the womb, constantly dividing, geometrically increasing it's size. If it is benign, the body surrounds the tumour with a capsule, preventing further growth. If malignant, it keeps growing, and metastasises, (basically, it shoots little bits of itself into the blood stream, which latch on to organs across the body, creating secondary tumours). This generally culminates when the tumours begin to kill ordinary cells in vital organs, such as the brain, liver, and pancreas. That's when you die. But the real question is why the malfunctions occur. Generally there are two reasons, substances called carcinogens, and radiation. Carcinogens tend to be heavy metals, tars, etc, but they can be anything. Most things contain carcinogens. Diet Coke contains aspartame, a carcinogen. The lead in your roof is a carcinogen. The edible plastic around some sausages, tar in cigarettes, new car smell, all carcinogenic. They can act in two ways, by killing cells which are then replaced, increasing the rate of replication and thus increasing the liklyhood of mutation, or they can mutate the genes themselves. Radiation basically ionises parts of molecules, causing them to change. DNA can be ionised by gamma radiation, changing it's code. That could cause cancer. Thus cancer is not man-made. However, both carcinogens and radiation have become far more widespread. Industry and processing is what spills out most carcinogens, thus pre-industrial civilisations were exposed to far less carcinogens. The most potent source of radiation before the 18th century was the sun, and cosmic rays. Both of which tend to ionise only high in the atmosphere, and which we are adapted to, along with other protection such as the ozone, and the magnetic shield. So, basically, cancer is like any disease, not man-made per se, however made more common by human activities.

HAIRSPRAY is Baaaaad lmao. And we're the whole makers and then I think JD is right about that damn other thing too.

What about the hole in the ozone layer that's made all that ultraviolet light able to cause cancer?

What about the fact that ultraviolet light and other high energy radiations cause cancer? How is that man-made?

They are not by any means immortal. But some cancers do persist to grow for short periods after the person has died.

ok bscially ur saying that cancer are cells that are immortal bc they continue to split rapidly so that they don't die and then they grow,almost like a clot but then into a toumr,etc. It probably has always been around. It just wasn't a thing they thought was a disease back then . I mean in the 1800's it was normal for a man to live his 30's. a miracle if longer after that. sometimes cancer isn't noticable. Probably just seemed like any other flu. idk. it's so confusing

The body tries to create organs it does not have or space between them, or just tissue that is unnecessary. That is pretty much what Cancer is. It is highly unlikely that evolution didn't create that process. To think that industrialization alone is the culprit is far too narrow a wind for me to get behind. But as I said, industrialization has made occur often enough that it is now noticeable.

I think cancer is both man-made and a part of the evolutionary cycle. Life tests itself against it's environment all the time. I am sure we did not create it, it existed before industrialization, but it probably has gotten far worse because of that. I would tend to think all life on this planet has had to deal with one form of cancer or another at least at some point during it's development.

Here some extra info lol : Cancer is a man-made disease fuelled by the excesses of modern life, a study of ancient remains has found. Tumours were rare until recent times when pollution and poor diet became issues the review of mummies, fossils and classical literature found A greater understanding of its origins could lead to treatments for the disease, which claims . entists found no signs of cancer in their extensive study of mummies apart from one isolated case Michael Zimmerman, a visiting professor at Manchester University said: 'In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases. cancer should remain in all cases'The virtual absence of malignancies in mummies must be interpreted as indicating their rarity in antiquity, indicating that cancer-causing factors are limited to societies affected by modern industrialisation. To trace cancer's roots, Professor Zimmerman and colleague Rosalie David analysed possible references to the disease in classica iterature and scrutinised signs in the fossil record and in mummified bodies. Despite slivers of tissue from hundreds of Egyptian mummies being rehydrated and placed under the microscope, only one case of cancer has been confirmed This is despite experiments showing that tumours should be even better preserved by mummification than healthy tissues. Dismissing the argument that the ancient Egyptians didn't live long enough to develop cancer, the researchers pointed out that other age-related disease such as hardening of the arteries and brittle bones died occur. Fossil evidence of cancer is also sparse, with scientific literature providing a few dozen, mostly disputed, examples in animal fossil providing a few dozen, mostly disputed, examples in animal fossil the journal Nature Reviews Cancer reports Even the study of thousands of Neanderthal bones has provided only one example of a possible cancer.more than 150,000 lives a year in the UK

Lol so I'm not sure if this goes in this catergory but here it goes. So I couldn't sleep last night and I decided let's do some recap on the lastest music. Instead of the usual music blarring angrily at me as if we had a damn score to settle I hear themost annoyingest voice everrr. Which happens to be one of he female radio host of that station. Ber dur I swear I could bite her. Anyways they were discussing cancer. My uncle didlast year from lung cancer and other complications. So I told my dumb brain who was quietly make threats to the woman who's the voice belonged to and I started to listen. Guess what they said?? The same damn thing we all already knew. No fucking duh. We all knew cancer was man-made. But is there anyone out there that's says otherwise?? Do you have other opinions?? If so why and explain! Now if you agree tell me your thoughts on it!! Etc. Ok I'm outties for a while. In the car againnnn. Lol like a g6. :) *fistpumps*
