Am I the only one who thinks his face looks like it`s sagging like an old man. I couldn`t focus because it was so out of place for his voice and other features.

Hmmm... ok, I can`t be arsed looking around for this kids work but correct me if I`m wrong, he`s made a straw with antibodies in it?!

And can people PLEASE watch that video and tell me if I`m imagining things... EVERY website I have seen says whole orders of magnitude smaller than what he`s saying:

i.e. he says 26 THOUSAND times less expensive (correct me if I`m wrong and have misheard that!!!)... but every other site I`ve found, i.e. CNBC:

CNBC website
... says just 26 times less expensive

AM I MISHEARING THINGS?!

...and yes, I think the guy is gayer than a field full of daisies

fancylad: This is only a science fair, I don`t think he has to give up his patent rights to his testing process. He`ll likely still get rich off that test.

umm...fancylad, sorry but these biomarkers are over 15 years old. These methods are already outdated. This method doenst work, and there are much more advanced diagnostic methods out there.

Gerry: Your Venn diagram is a ways off. I`ve known a few dumb jerky ugly gay guys. They were rather creepy too, but that just might`ve be my reaction to finding out later they were both on the state sex predator list.

Unfortunately they were also both owners/bosses of the newspaper telemarketing firm I temporarily worked at.

Tedgp, do you fancy Fancy or something?, because you`re always pulling his pigtails. He does kind of look like a young pre-Miami-Vice-and-alcoholism Don Johnson with an iPhone in front of his face in his profile pic, so your attraction is really nothing to be ashamed of, but really, strutting around like Rick from the Young Ones perceiving slights at minorities of all kinds at every little comment isn`t the healthiest way to get his attention.

It`s stories like this one that give me some reason to hope that humanity wont always be as fxcked up as it is right now in our generation.

I just realized something: ONLY $75k? Seems like he`s being dicked out of a lot of money for something that seems to potentially worth billions.
