    Third World Diarrhea Attacked : Whew! What a Relief!

    Well...they may not have food, or clothing, or housing...but at least they wont have diarrhea

    Napo Pharmaceuticals is poised to launch the first Third World blockbuster drug.

    It sounds counterintuitive -- drugs marketed to poor people don't typically lead to big profits. But Lisa Conte, Napo's founder and CEO, hopes not only to bring an affordable diarrhea medication to millions of people in developing nations, but also to reshape the pharmaceutical industry.

    Actually, humor aside, it IS a very serious problem in third world countries, often resulting in death by dehydration. Barring side-effects, this med might be a good thing.
    Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

    Which coder said that nobody could outcode Microsoft in their own OS? Write a bit and make a fortune!

    Hi l3lacklce,

    I agree...but if adequate food, shelter, and clothing were provided then diarrhea would be no more an issue than in First World Nations...it's the conditions they live in and the nutritional content of the food they eat that gives them diarrhea in the first place and makes it more dangerous.
    Diarrhea is a symptom of the bigger problem.

    It just struck me as funny...not Tech Humor ha,ha funny...more funny in a kinda funny way

    Eg

    I would bet it will still cost a months wage for the locals even at its 'lower' price.

    We should start a concert where everyone rolls around in dirt, food packaging with rotting food still inside, oh and also alots of fiecies. Bono will take the stage & talk about poverty, oppression, the environment.

    Did somebody say Schitt......let's get this story straight...


    The True Story of the Schitt's

    The lineage is finally revealed. Many people are at a loss for a response when someone says "You don't know Jack Schitt!" Read on and you'll be able to handle the situation intelligently.

    Jack is the only son of Awe Schitt and O. Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, a partner of Kneedeep & Schitt, Inc.

    Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt, and the deeply religious couple begat 6 children: Holie Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Giva Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins, Deap Schitt and Dip Schitt.

    Against her parents' wishes, Deap Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout.

    After 15 years of marriage, Jack & Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married a Mr. Sherlock, and out of devotion to her children, decided to hyphenate her last name, and became Noe Schitt-Sherlock.

    Dip Schitt married a woman named Loda Dung, who became Loda Schitt. The couple produced a nervous son, Chicken Schitt.

    Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, inseperable thoughout childhood subsequently married the Happens brothers. The local newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens wedding, which was quite an event. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Hoarse.

    Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He returned from his travels with his Italian bride, Piza Schitt.

    So, NOW if someone says "You don't know Jack Schitt", you can beg to differ. You not only know Jack Schitt, but the entire Schitt list!





    no link...but it's all over the net...so easy to find
