This five-year-old boy in Alabama(?) got kidnapped. He’s stuck in a bunker with some nutty Vietnam vet.
Clouse said the boy has Asperger’s syndrome, an autism-like disorder, as well as ADHD. Police have been delivering medication to him through the pipe, he said.
I hope that medicine has Iocaine powder in it, and that they’re secretly building up the boy’s resistance, so when the man runs out of cans of beans and demands a pizza SWAT can POISON THE FUCK OUT OF IT
Japan’s finance minister Taro Aso said Monday the elderly should be allowed to “hurry up and die” instead of costing the government money for end-of-life medical care.
"This won’t be solved unless you let them hurry up and die," he said.
"I don’t need that kind of care. I will die quickly," he said adding he had left written instructions that his life is not artificially prolonged.
He’s not totally wrong. The bulk of Medicare money here in the U.S. (and I can only assume it’s worse in Japan) gets spent trying to pull out a few more so-so years from elderly people. It should really be going to children who haven’t yet lived a full life.
