bad news today and can ya help me out
    #8790552 - 08/18/08 01:26 PM (9 years, 11 months ago)

the bad news is rolling in this morning. 



so i got woke up this morning at 7 am just to be let known that a really good friend of mine has been given only a few months to live.  i know that he wasn't doing well in the first place but when i left friday evening he ws rushed to the hospital and the doctors gave him only a few months to live.

he has hiv and is now brain damaged because of it.  he always told his significant other that if he went brain damaged then he just wanted to be dead.  so they have decided to stop him on his hiv meds.  i cannot believe this.  i knew it was only a matter of time but not this close. damn.


then i got a text message a few minutes ago that my other friends little boy is having to have chemo treatments for cancer.  he is collecting bottle caps (the little plastic ones).  if he gets 150 thousand he gets all 10 treatments for free.


===================Can ya Help?=======================

if anyone drinks a lot of drinks out of a bottle i am willing to pay for shipping if you wanna send me your bottle caps.  Actually anyone who wants to send bottle caps I am willing to pay shipping.

it'll take him 52.08 years if he collects two per minute non-stop.

he better not sleep much.

well see the trick behind that is to not just only collect yourself.  you ask others to help ... and people like me do!

Bottle caps? Why would he get 10 treatments for free if he had 150k of these?

Sounds like bullshit.

You should phone him back and tell him he's a gullible idiot.

until i read that was a hoax, i was gonna say go to a few festivals and volunteer with the cleanup crew to sort trash.  you could easily have 10-20k in a weekend.  i know we filled up a ~50gal trash can with caps in an hour or so of sorting at allgood

It doesn't really make sense at all that bottle caps can pay for cancer treatment.

no it doesn't but people don't think about that stuff when they think they found away to help.  I never heard of the bottle tops being collected I have heard of the can tabs being collected, not saying that will be any good either though.

people collect the pop can tabs along with pop cans but you get money from the recycling that helps but only with a ridiculous amount like this guy http://www3.niu.edu/recycling/alum_facts/page29.html

"If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution - then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise." - Aldous Huxley

Why the fuck would hospitals give people free chemo for bottle caps? It just does not make sense.

I guess people get desperate when they have no healthcare.
