Wow that's hilarious
Fixed. I wonder of Jobs has had anything to do with all the bullshit lawsuits Apple has pulled lately, or if that was done without his approval, since he was on leave.

I couldn't care less about him, its just another reminder that this is all temporary and there is no god. Hopefully when the the sun expands to a red giant my molecules will become part of a galaxy destroying black hole that wipes out trillions of faggot aliens.

Ooofah.

Now that right there should shut the tinfoil hatters up...

"The globalists have the cure for cancer, but releasing it would cut into Big Pharma's cancer drugs profit, so they keep it suppressed! Maaaaaaan!"

If there was a cure for cancer, that man would have it... even if it cost a billion dollars... that man would have it. And he sure the fuck doesn't look like a man who has the cure for cancer.
