What is your problem?

You do know that you can post more than 10 words in an excerpt, don’t you?

And this is worthy of Breaking News?

They could do a demo with Bill hissef' ~ show what happens at higher and higher frequencies at closer and closer intervals.

Just keep doing that until he flares up just like that idiot with the butt bomb on the plane.

I'd pay good money to see it!

If we, as a society, had any sense we would ban every form of contraception.

Sex w/o consequence is at the root of most of our pathologies.

BWT, what kind of idiot would allow someone to zap their sperm?

If you counted the words, you miscounted.

If you didn't count the words...well, she did post more than 10 words.

If this is true, it will be a game changer.

And if it is true, expect women’s organizations to scream bloody murder.

Bill and Melinda are such philanthropic people! They’re doing whatever they can to reduce the surplus population!

I wonder if B&M will allow the average folk who are already alive to live, or should we eliminate a few million of those people too?

A better source of wisdom with regard to this subject:

I once excerpted an article using only nine words. But that was way before you got here and when nobody cared and nobody was counting.......

I don't think that's what they mean by "ultrasound"

______________________________________

Yes, and as I posted earlier. Of a given 1000 sperm, 980 will be destroyed, 10 will survive, and 10 will be deformed or DNA compromised.

The abortion industry will LOVE this as this is just one more reason to kill the undesired unborn.
