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

Portfolioso August 24, 2016 Rants

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

Portfolioso July 14, 2016 Rants, Science

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

Portfolioso July 6, 2016 Rants

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

Portfolioso February 2, 2016 Rants

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.

Fuck
F this noise… Then they wonder why I hit the bottle…  Photo Cred: Mario Diaz/PIX11 News

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:

Miserable UX on Weather.com and Its Android App

Portfolioso December 27, 2015 Computer/ Tech Related, Rants

In this blog, I will be calling out weather.com for a shitty user experience. Who the hell do you have there as product designers? Let me tell you who. All assholes. Hire me instead because you have to be an absolute idiot to make the decisions they made… Unfortunately, I tried many other weather apps and they pretty much all suck. Weather.com is one of the better ones. So weather.com, let me explain why your shit’s weak. Wizzzeak:

 

Long
Ain’t got time to fill out this long assed survey.

Saved Locations are different on the Android App and on the Web version. Wut?

What in the actual hell is the point of creating a user account to save locations when they are not the same on the web version and in the Android App? I created an account on the Android App via my Google account and saved some locations. Then I went to weather.com and logged in with my Google account. None of the saved locations were there. Plus, the web version is limited to 10 locations. Makes less than 0 sense.

What the hell is this Minus bullshit  under manage locations in the checkbox area and why can’t I delete this location?

I literally cannot remove this from my saved locations and have no idea why. I don’t give three shits about LaGuardia Airport. I don’t understand why this got here and why I cannot delete it:

Get the goddamn temperature out of my status bar

I don’t want to see a temperature in my status bar based on your “follow me” feature. No matter what I do, I cannot turn it off, so I need to block notifications for this app on the OS level to get this to disappear. Fix your settings and let me turn this off.

mPoints rewards are a cluttered waste of life

They include this third party mPoints bullshit to “reward you” for using their app. 1) You need to sign up for an account with mPoints and then you’re supposed to get free shit for using the app loyally?  Nope. I’ll use your app more if you remove this horse shit. I can almost guarantee that weather.com gets paid by these morons to include their shit in the app and it most likely tracks all your user data. How else is this mpoints bullshit company going to make money?

Get a load of this long ass survey nonsense (left image)

Another reason why they suck at life is that they hire these independent companies to give users these long assed surveys. May I ask who has time to fill out all this bullshit? Not me. I started to fill it out because I wanted to tell them everything I’m complaining about here, but then I saw how long it was and decided it wasn’t worth my time and I could at least write a sarcastic blog about them instead. Again, don’t you assholes understand that no one has time to fill out this fucking monstrosity of a survey? Less is more.

Too Many Ads

Greedy motherfuckers

 

In Conclusion…

Hire me as a consultant. I’ll fix your shit in no time.

PS: My blog’s theme has shitty looking styling. This looked so much better in the WordPress editor than it does on my actual blog and I’m too lazy to worry about it so whatever.
