Apparently I forgot to mention this at the time, but I finished my chain mail skirt for my Fire Elf. The final costume will be displayed at Dragon*con this year. This is the last update I have planned for the costume, so unless something really really cool occurs to me, I'm pretty much finished.





Now to get dress dummies made of [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy and [profile] may_dryad for the Evil Ice Elf and Evil Earth Elf respectively.

I have also begun the latexing for Laurie Jupiter, which will also hopefully be ready by Dragon*con.

So far I have my Fire Elf, Laurie Jupiter, and Sarah Connor.  I don't think I'm going to bring Baroness this year.  I finally got a hold of some old comics, and I realized just how much work I have to do on her, so, since I have 3 new ones this year (one I didn't mention) plus Sarah Connor, I think that's all I'll need.

Cancer-Killing Therapy
"scientists injected minicells into animals which are designed to deliver a payload of toxins and gene inhibitors and are coated with an antibody that latches on to tumor cells. In one recent study all the mice implanted with a tumor were free of tumor cells after a 70-day treatment period. All the mice left untreated died.  A separate study using dogs with advanced brain cancer produced similar results and safety trials using human subjects begin next month in three Melbourne hospitals."

Treatment for Alsheimer's, Schizophrenia, Obesity, Dementia, others
"A protein found on brain cells, known to contribute to nicotine addiction, may also be the key to developing drugs for a wide range of diseases and medical conditions, including obesity, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease. ... 'When you don’t have enough acetylcholine released to activate the receptors, people can’t remember and they have cognitive impairment,' said Merouane Bencherif, vice president at Targacept. 'What we would do is provide a drug that is not metabolized that acts on nicotinic receptors. So essentially, you’re compensating for the deficit that exists in Alzheimer’s disease.' "

Key Gene For Autism Identified
"Researchers have found the first common genetic link to autism earlier this month and said it could potentially account for 15 percent of the disease's cases. The studies, according to Reuters, suggest changes in brain connections could possibly be at the bottom of some cases of autism. ... The findings are interesting, but as of now, will not help in the treatment or diagnosis of autism. Still, as these studies continue, the field is narrowed as to what actually causes autism"

Seriously!  Did you know that the reason we should prohibit gay marriage is because if guys figure out that they can get cock up the ass, none of them will want to marry women and all us poor women will be left alone with no mans to take care of us?!  It's twue!

Because, y'know, vagina just pales in comparison to the wonder that is the schlong. Once men get to sample of the hairy manflesh, women just can't satisfy them anymore. Once men go fag, they never go back.

The fact that men can get cock *now* without having to marry it doesn't change the fact that all men really want dick and will leave women out in the cold the instant they can sign away half their property to another penis (all women, of course, also hate the vajayjay - everyone loves the beefstick).
