That's what a 28-day bottle of Harvoni costs at retail. It's the first really effective treatment for hepatitis C, and Gilead Sciences is charging more than $1000 per pill because they can. And despite its enormous cost, it's quickly becoming the top-selling prescription drug. (At least, that's what people without health insurance pay. People on Medicare pay "nothing", the government pays and it comes out of everyone's taxes. And people in countries with a national health service pay a tiny fraction of the American price, because other countries won't allow a drug manufacturer to screw people using patents. What, don't you enjoy being screwed?)
Hilarious LA Times article about the "drug war" in a "decaying area"; where I live. And PS, Rob Brown is an asshole.
Bay area "foodies" are disgusting. They cause idiocy like this to happen. Plus, foods that only poor people ate before, like kale and collard greens, are now being "gentrified". So fewer people can afford them.
If you think 4chan or 8chan are misogynistic and depressing, have a look at Wizardchan's "depression" section. A haven for the most antisocial, arrogant nerds you've ever seen. After that, no one can complain about /b/ ever again. (And yes, I know that moot recently "retired". Wish he'd take his dedicated fans with him.)
Something I bet you didn't know about Charlie Hebdo: they hated Apple, because Apple would not sell Charlie Hebdo on the Apple Store without reserving the right to censor it. And here are some of the cartoons they drew about the dispute.
Now it's being claimed that Miralax might cause autism in children. Everything causes autism, according to autism "experts" like mothers with autistic children (cough Jenny McCarthy cough).
Walmart is your friend. Walmart will not hurt you.
Why aren't you going to Ratcave? Are the beavers ruining your paradise?

Pop quiz: who in this story is more pathetic, stupid and insane, the animal-rights people or the cops who spied on them?
"Data mining has become so sophisticated that campaigns can now target voters by mashing together public records with much more personal information from Facebook feeds and consumer reports that offer such nuggets as who has sterling credit ratings but hasn’t purchased a car in seven or more years. One company even wants to get into the political market by selling campaigns data that identifies which voters sought information on Viagra and other erectile-dysfunction drugs." So? Just vote dickless.
"What To Do When You Discover Your Co-Worker Writes Erotic Hulk Fanfic", my ass. If you look into Archive Of Our Own closely, you will find a story about the Hulk trying to stuff Loki up his ass. Fan fiction reaches its pinnacle of development.
Elana Pritchard, blah. Old Dick, yech.
2015 isn't especially wonderful so far, eh?
(BTW, if you love to read about Reddit's general idiocy and madness, try r/redditcritiques. We're posting our considerable database of Reddit scandals there, slowly. Feel it.)

Been on a commercial airliner lately? Wondered why all the "special fees"? It's because they're the only way the airlines can generate a good profit. And that's for one simple, harsh fact: no matter how much they complain about poor service, Americans want cheap fares above all. Live free or die, fuckers!
Violence! Crime! Terror! Bullshit!!!
Mr. Seastrand doesn't need to worry -- all he has to do is move to another state, and they'll probably make him a sworn police officer in no time. This "never be allowed to serve as a police officer again" crap only applies in New Hampshire. Then he can go back to doing disgusting things to teenaged girls.
"PlumpJack Winery in Napa Valley, the first high-end American producer to take a chance on screw caps in the late 1990s, was scorned for making the switch.
"We got faxes and voice messages saying 'Your career is over,' 'It's a screwy idea' and that restaurants would have to start charging a 'screw fee,'" said John Conover, PlumpJack's general manager." Yes, the wine business is (still) full of screaming cunt-boys.
Don't forget to donate to the Scrotum Warmer project.
And here's something to chew on for the new year:
"I'm a male in my early 20's. If you were to ask me who I am, the 1st thing I would instantly say is "I am an anal vore fanatic". It's who I am. It's my identity. Anal vore is my life, and it felt important enough for me to tell my friends and family."
What is "anal vore"? Look around Eka's Portal for a while and see for yourself. "Vore fetishism" is just as popular as "bronyism", but even more underground. And how does your insanity compare to that?

Oh, you think a highly educated Harvard professor would be wiser than to harass a Chinese restaurant for days, for the "terrible crime" of overcharging him $4? You would be wrong. The academic world is just as petty and stupid and hostile as any other world.
If you think PewDiePie is the worst of YouTube, consider the paranoid rants of this gentleman. Suddenly PewDiePie doesn't seem so awful.
The Consumer Electronics Show is fast approaching. And someone in the CES staff had the brilliant idea of creating a "meme generator". Which attracted considerable mockery.
Yes, you fucknozzles, people steal magazines from doctor's offices. Especially celebrity-scandal titles. Been doing it for decades.
If you really want to learn about the Sony Pictures hack in depth, this is your best bet. Don't bother with the Wikipedia article, it is being chopped at by two of Wikipedia's biggest assholes, "Everymorning" and Michael "Masem" Neylon. (The latter is a brony. I kid you not.)
And remember: boycott Seth Rogen movies. Because he's a pussy.
And go look at Ratcave, because you're a pussy.

Good article about the stalling of progress. It's easy: baby boomers are old and in the way.
In case you need more reminding of why Mormon extremists are bad people, and Arizona and Utah can eat collective shit and die, read this.
Me sad, because more furry conventions don't get evacuated due to poison gas.
And I want to see Jeff Bezos, shoved entirely up an elephant's ass. Why can't we have these little things?

When they run "apologies" like this.
And this is how you know Metafilter Is Shit: on Friday, their top-voted item was (predictably) about the fucking Star Wars trailer.
Meanwhile, someone tried to post a legitimate item about the Gilbert school board's book censorship, and that ugly asshole Matt Haughey killed it: "Sorry this seems like outrageous dumb thing that happened". Keep it up, Matt, you chode, great job so far!
All that crap about Buffalo's 10 feet of snow, and hardly anyone noticed this. Hey, that's the Buffalo we all know and love!
Deadly banana! Murderous toy gun! Oh god oh god, we're surrounded by terror and crime! Let's spy on everyone! Tell those Wonderful Men and Women Of Law Enforcement to go out and shoot some more 12-year-olds!
It's nice to see that Hobbs is still a dump. If I were him, I'd do a lot more than drink on the job and fuck patients. I'd nuke that shithole.
Speaking of which, anyone got some plutonium?
Because the government evidently doesn't. Or do they?

"Over the last fifteen months, the columns and op-ed pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post
have bulged with the compressed flatulence of commentators intent on
dismissing warnings about encroachments on civil liberties. Indeed, in
recent months soi-disant liberal intellectuals such as Sean Wilentz,
George Packer and Michael Kinsley have employed the Edward Snowden
affair to mount a fresh series of attacks. They claim that Snowden,
Glenn Greenwald and those associated with them neither respect democracy
nor understand political responsibility." In short, American progressivism has a problem with its "punditry class". Another example of a "great empire" slowly fading away.
Meanwhile, the increasingly-disgusting NSA is spying on American politicians. And occasionally blackmailing them. And no one in Washington seems to care.
"These sources say the searches occurred individually and in small groups, and that the juveniles were asked to remove all their clothes, to squat, and to cough." Philly, baby! Anal searches on children!
Insane Artist Corner: Jonathan Payne's Fleshlettes. Yes, he sells them on Etsy.
One of the greatest Flash games ever made, now banned from the Android Store: Ass Hunter!
Do you like to see whiny little hipster fucks complaining about their balls? Consider what Drew Magary said after he had a vasectomy and developed a hematoma. The comments add to the fun. Manchildren really do think their deez-nuts are the Center Of The Universe. Hah.
Did you know that one of the major right-wing talk radio networks was founded by a nut who used to run a quack hypnotism scam? Read the story of Talk Radio Network; the outfit that first brought us Art Bell, then Michael Savage, and now gives airtime to Kevin Sorbo's wife and the security chief from Babylon 5. No, I am not making any of this up.
Could be worse, you could be stuck in North Dakota.
