Then let's divide each by the number of deaths from each disease for the same time period...

You said that if cancer received one quarter of the funding AIDS does, it would be cured. You didn't say anything about "one quarter of the funding, normalized for deaths."

Certainly, the funding to deaths ratio is far higher for AIDS than cancer. But that's not what you were talking about. I was simply pointing out to you that in terms of raw funding, cancer gets at least twice that of AIDS, because I (apparently mistakenly) believed that you didn't believe this to be true.

Listen, I would like to apologize to you for my answer the other day. I could have said it in a nicer tone, but I didn’t because I was having a pissy day. Hope you understand.
