Well, there is a cure, it's called anti-depressants and I believe Haldol ... or some such.

Which then leads to school shootings and an over reaching govt.
NNNEXT!
Proper medication is not obtained from a psychiatrist, you cannot trust the insane to treat for sanity anymore than you can trust a car thief as a car salesman. The government is already over reaching, and much of it is because of the god delusion and homophobia.

Since you're the one buying into a lot of conspiracy nuttery, it would be a safer bet to state that you are searching for this "golden parachute," whatever that is.

Please, I'm tired of over educated and well paid intellectual answers that fall well short of competent. If that is the best you have to offer and the fact that you're so oblivious and insulated to what is going on around you then please, I'll ask nicely today, stay away from my posts or at least offer some sort of refute to the day of reckoning that is inevitable.
The only conspiracy that I know of that can be applied to your own comment of "God delusion" And that is the battles we waged and won for our Independence from an oppressive tyrannical govt in Great Britian. So what did they do Kitty? They opened a private bank in our country unconstitutionlly in 1913, then drafted the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and the rest has been gravy at the expense of hundreds of millions of souls here and abroad. God delusion, aka Yahweh delusion and using us to irradicate many camel riders for a sliver of land that many 'anti semetic jews' lay claim to eventhough their bloodline has nothing to do with semetic jews.
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name.
Wonderful.
There is a reason the intellectuals get paid more than you.

The prescription is written by a psychiatrist or a doctor.
Amazingly we see so many libtards insulting people telling anyone that disagrees with them to receive and be put on medication. To me that is the tacit approval or acceptance by regressive liberals and how disturbing they and their policies really are because it is they that are pushing society to the brink over the decades because of subversion and decadence.
This govt should be abolished along with the tax code. The fed too.
The worst is yet to come.
Psychologists are more qualified than psychiatrists, and psychology is based on actual science where psychiatry is nothing more than stereotypes. There is a difference. Also, I am a conservative, I would just prefer to not have to worry about you going crazy and shooting up some theater or school.

Wow kitty! Judge em as quick as you post em. That'll be enough from you today. Once again, your inability to refute or provide anything of substance tells me you're just not good enough. Not sure how high an education you have but at this point I wouldn't believe very high. But then again these days ya never know. They hand that paper out to anyone. Look at Bush and Obama. LOL!
Intellectual? Good one kitty. See ya!

This sounds as promising as anything that's been announced before. I recommend you take that perspective into account before letting your hopes fly high.

It never ends the danger when people do what they shouldn't be doing. Gay or straight.
The party of irresponsibility. It's all religions fault. Well, if ya blame the subversive decadent yews then yes, probably, cus it aint Muslims, Christains, Catholics, or Buddhists condoning this junk. Well, the so called Christains that do support it aren't really Christains. They too sadly have been subverted by you know who.
That's caused by HPV, the same virus that produces cervical cancer in women.

Vaccinate all the kids, and it won't be a problem for the next generation. Circumcise the boys, and a lot of other fungal and bug transmissions will go down, too.

I have had enough reading of books, I prefer lectures now, video and audio. Also, I will not trust a psychiatrist, insane people have no business enforcing their stereotypes onto people, or their own delusions. Psychiatry has done nothing but harm people, destroy lives, and turn some completely sane people into rambling idiots, I have seen too many such cases in the shelters to ever consider trusting even the opinion of a psychiatrist.

Hopefully either this or the vaccine for AIDS comes out soon.
A vaccine originating from Canada is currently undergoing human trials in the US and is estimated to be released 10 years from now.
The vaccine is tested by giving it to patients already infected with AIDS and monitoring them to see if the disease spreads. If the disease doesn't spread, the vaccine has worked.
So far, the tests have shown promising results.

The issue with the common cold is that it mutates constantly. It's pretty infectious and infects animals as well as humans. Each time another species is infected, a virus/bacteria/infection/disea se/etc mutates and makes it harder to cure.
For example, if the cold goes human-to-dog, the cold mutates.
Then if it goes back from dog-to-human, it mutates again on top of the previous mutation.

That's why a cure for the common cold is extremely unlikely (at least, at the moment with our current scientific capabilities).

I wonder how it works... gene therapy? A modified HIV virus? An agent that modifies the protein or the viral DNA? Even if it is an effective cure for the disease trajectory, stuff like this usually does not pan out because of the challenges with mass production of synthetic proteins and gene therapies, and limits on the effectiveness of the delivery mechanism. The human body is more complex than what's in a petri-dish.
