Mylan Suits Charging Usurious Amounts of Money for EpiPens Are a Bunch of Cunts

August 24th, 2016 1:54am Comments off

NBC News – EpiPen prices aren’t the only thing to jump at Mylan. Executive salaries have also seen a stratospheric uptick. Proxy filings show that from 2007 to 2015, Mylan CEO Heather Bresch’s total compensation went from $2,453,456 to $18,931,068, a 671 percent increase. During the same period, the company raised EpiPen prices, with the average wholesale price going from $56.64 to $317.82, a 461 percent increase, according to data provided by Connecture.

In 2007 the company bought the rights to EpiPen, a device used to provide emergency epinephrine to stop a potentially fatal allergic reaction and began raising its price. In 2008 and 2009, Mylan raised the price by 5 percent. At the end of 2009 it tried out a 19 percent hike. The years 2010-2013 saw a succession of 10 percent price hikes. And from the fourth quarter of 2013 to the second quarter of 2016, Mylan steadily raised EpiPen prices 15 percent every other quarter. The stock price more than tripled, going from $13.29 in 2007 to a high of $47.59 in 2016.

I’m not even allergic to anything (except fuckin cats, but only my eyes get red and I sneeze, so it’s not too bad), but I just wanted to say that there is NOTHING in this world that enrages me more than suit motherfuckers lining their pockets at the expense of innocent people. Especially when they have a monopoly on a life saving product that is inexpensive to produce and re-sold at ridiculous profits. Did you read the article excerpt above? Do you see how much fucking money these shitheads are making? How much their stock increased? This is bullshit. And it’s nothing new. Same thing happened back in 2015 when cocksucker Martin Shkreli of Turing Pharmaceuticals raised the price of a 62-year-old drug that used to be $13.50 per pill to to $750 a pill. There should be some kind of percentage limit on how much some shit can cost based on the price to produce it.

Yes, I believe in Laissez Faire and think companies are better off unregulated by the government, but when it comes down to public health, this is morally wrong. This is why healthcare is bullshit in America and why I call us a second world country. Everyone’s going to start dying of preventable shit while the filthy rich get richer.

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch and anyone else involved in these price hikes deserve to be put in a Saw movie like trap and injected with something that will cause a slow painful death. The antidote should be placed in eyesight but ever so slightly out out of reach. I want to see desperation. I want to see bloody, ground up fingers clawing at the floor for the antidote, but not being able to get it.

Seriously… How can they do this to people and sleep soundly at night.

PS – I hope Anonymous hacks the shit out of them and ruins them all.

If You Get a Rare Bacterial Infection Because You Decided to Get Surgery in the DR, You’re an Asshole

July 14th, 2016 6:12pm Comments off

Scientific American – Nearly two dozen women who traveled from the U.S. to the Dominican Republic in search of less-expensive tummy tucks and other cosmetic procedures came home with more than they bargained for—severe surgical infections that required months of antibiotic treatment or additional surgeries, or both. The pathogen that caused their problemsMycobacterium abscessusis distantly related to both tuberculosis and leprosy and has become more and more of a problem in a growing number of medical settings around the world, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

I’m sorry, but if you go to the Dominican Republic for any reason other than a vacation, pounding Mama Juanas, or getting the shits from bad food/water, you’re an asshole. What idiot in their right mind would willfully go to some third world country and risk their health to save a couple bucks on tummy tuck surgery. I’m not leaving top healthcare to save a couple bucks and get infected with the cousin bacteria of leprosy. That’s like some bible era plague. No thank you.

If You Eat This Disgusting, Ash Coconut Ice Cream BS, You’re an Idiot Millennial Hipster

July 6th, 2016 11:16pm Comments off

Daily News – The latest food craze of the summer is Black Coconut Ash ice cream from Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream on the Lower East Side. The dark dessert is made with coconut milk and cream and gets its color from coconut ash, a form of activated charcoal that you’ve probably seen in face scrubs or in lemonade touted on Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle site “Goop.” Now, the trendy black, odor-less ingredient is found in cocktails, green juices and pizza.

If you decide to spend $4.50 on a scoop — you’ll need a fatter wallet for the $13 pint — load up on toppings like Oreo bits. The noir novelty comes with a major caveat: It turns your hands, mouth, teeth, tongue and basically anything you touch, black. My white pants and I learned that the hard way.

Typical millennial hipsters doing hipster things. This is the polar opposite of what I want when I go for some ice cream. Hey guys, let’s eat some gross tasting charcoal coconut slop just because it looks cool. Absolutely not. “But it’s so unique and abnormal so let me go dish out $500 because I’m one of the cool kids.”

We’re screwed. Absolutely screwed. We’ve got a couple clown shops running for president and now all the LES hipsters running around thinking it’s cool to eat this sloppy, disgusting, overpriced mud. Oh yeah, and all the tabloids and local news just aired it tonight, so free advertising

People: Ya Gotta Stop Jumping in Front of Trains

February 2nd, 2016 9:45am Comments off

NY Daily News – A person was fatally struck by a Metro-North train in the Bronx Monday afternoon, sources said. The person was hit at about 3:30 p.m. by a northbound train passing through the Botanical Garden station at Bedford Park and Kazimiroff Blvds., MTA spokeswoman Meredith Daniels said.

Sources said the death was likely a suicide. The person’s name and gender has not yet been released. MTA officials are shutting down train service on two of the four tracks at that station, which will cause delays on Metro-North’s Harlem and New Haven lines, Daniels said.

You know my series of blogs “if you do x, you deserve to die?” Welp. This is the one exception. Because in this case, dying is WAY too quick, painless and easy. How selfish do you have to be to knowingly jump in front of a train and cost thousands of people hours of  delays? Of all the places to kill yourself, you have to do it 1) right before rush hour and 2) on the main artery in/out of Grand Central that affects all three train lines. If you’re going to jump in front of a train in the first place, at least use your head about it, like killing yourself some other way. You’re going to make a couple of those poor commuters in Grand Central kill themselves next and then this will be a daily occurrence.

So I have a solution:
