OT: Paul Allen Dead

Recommended Posts

Someones going to inherit a boatload of money. R.I.P. Paul Allen. He was a great tech pioneer and by all accounts a great owner of pro sports teams.

I read that his fortune was mostly committed to charity upon his passing.

Well yeah. Obviously using a computer means you are guaranteed to get cancer, unless something else kills you first. It's a good thing nobody else uses computers ....... oh. F#ck! We're all gonna die!

No idea what Allen's situation was, but I have read that Jobs went the "let's use the power of crystals and positive thinking" route in treating his cancer.  With predictable results.

You joke, but I think so.  Also, cell phones.

I'm only half joking. I've thought about it as well, especially since I usually keep my phone in my front pocket. Radioactive genitals may be a symptom/diagnosis down the road for millions of us.

It's just like music stars and planes. Buddy Holly, Patsy Cline, Lynryd Skynyrd, John Denver, Jim Croce...

The link is obvious. Musicians should not fly on planes.

Steve Jobs Cancer actually has a very good 5 year survival rate. He chose to forgo surgery and/or chemotherapy for herbal supplements, acupuncture and a special diet. Unfortunately by the time he wanted to try surgery, the cancer was too widespread.
