While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Oggsmash, loved your take on crimes against the mentally ill.

David, sadly in murka the system is jot accountable for wrongs it does. A man in Missouri was in prison for like 43 years on a false conviction. A Missouri judge ruled he was not entitled to one single cent in compensation from the state.

Jeffy,  you worthless blob of lubricant, fecal matter and semen  produced by two pedophiles having anal sex with each other, I out of curiosity looked at your post. Someday I'll learn....


For your edification, I read godwhale many years ago when I was a kid. Maybe after so much time I might not have had all the facts right, but mostly I did. It's a pity your locality didn't enforce laws against close relatives breeding,  or possibly beastiality. Then I wouldn't have to actively igborenyour pathetic snipes at every post I make.

Have you ever considered how much better the world would be without you? Hopefully some day you will fuck up abd accidentally talk to someone IRL the way you do to me on this board.  I imagine your funeral would be quite cheap as your remains, after provoking someone that way, would likely fit in a mayonnaise jar, so no expensive coffin required.

No you won't. If you were capable of learning, you wouldn't be such a poster child for TDS.

So you admit to having a failing memory, but didn't bother to make sure you remembered the details correctly. Got it. Your ego outweighs your common sense.

I'll give you a smidgen of truth. I have  thought about it a lot because I am adopted. The circumstances of my actual birth has cause me quite a bit of soul searching. Instead of weakening me, like your beliefs have weakened you, they have given this agnostic occasional LeVeyan satanist quite a bit of strength to keep on going.

See, I talk like this to everyone I meet. Real life or not.

All you can do to end me is cry and pray to the ghost of Karl Marx that somebody else does what you will never be able to do.

Insulin dealers.
Canadians pay approximately $35+ per vial of insulin.
WalMart sells it in the USA at $24.88 per vial over the counter without a script.
If you have a script and insurance it is ~$12 a vial.

This seems like it'd make a good Cthulhu scenario - whether Slenderman was real or not. You could be the crazy girls trying to take him down, or the investigators looking for the crazy cultists trying to make the girls into his victim, lots of possibilities.

I'd add, is that the same insulin formulation? I am not a doctor, but my understanding is that the Walmart Novolog brand is human insulin, which is different from analog insulin which is more commonly prescribed. From the Walmart promotion page,

https://corporate.walmart.com/newsroom/2021/06/29/walmart-revolutionizes-insulin-access-affordability-for-patients-with-diabetes-with-the-launch-of-the-first-and-only-private-brand-analog-insulin

Walmart analog insulin is available at $72.88 per vial, not $24.88. I don't see a clear sales of $24.88 on Walmart's store pages, but I see discussion of it as human insulin, like this discussion of Walmart's offering:

https://theconversation.com/why-telling-people-with-diabetes-to-use-walmart-insulin-can-be-dangerous-advice-125528

and more general discussion of human vs analog insulin:

https://www.healthline.com/health/diabetes/human-insulin

In general, when comparing the exact same drug formulations, they are available in other countries (like Canada) more cheaply. That's been true for drugs across the board. Prescriptions do vary from country to country, but in general, U.S. customers pay much more for prescription drugs compared to other First World countries.

No, the human insulin is Novolin brand and is 24.88 and is OTC. 
Novolog brand is the analog insulin which is $72.88 and requires a script .

https://theconversation.com/why-telling-people-with-diabetes-to-use-walmart-insulin-can-be-dangerous-advice-125528

This is clearly an outlier and is about someone who was quite negligent in their own self care. 
Not the fault of the insulin at all.  The danger in both human and analog insulin has always been low blood sugar.
Human insulin has been used by Type I and II diabetics well before analog insulin was on the market in 1998.

This chart is the difference roughly betwen human and analog:
Analog R - black; Human R - blue ; Human N - purple ; Analog N - red or green

One just has to change the timing and dosage when moving from one type to another.

Thanks for the correction. I did mix up Novolog vs Novolin. And I have no opinion or argument about human insulin vs analog. My issue was over price comparison, because I've know a bunch of people who buy drugs in other countries because they say they're cheaper there. With insulin, I just want to check that we're comparing apples to apples. Is the Canadian price you quoted for human insulin (comparable to Novolin) or analog insulin (comparable to Novolog)? What I see in this article, for example, says:

Quote
A standard vial of the NovoRapid insulin pictured below costs C$37 at Shoppers Drug Mart located in Toronto.
https://globalnews.ca/news/5249662/americans-driving-canada-insulin-prices/

My understanding is that NovoRapid is the Canadian brand name for Novolog. So that should be compared to $72.88 at U.S. Walmart for the same thing.

10ml

I guess it depends on the brand but here in NZ you would pay about $36 Jacinda bucks for 10ml of Isophane insulin (Protaphane) so about $22 Biden bucks.

Insulin aspart (Novorapid) would go for $60 Jacinda Bucks ($38 Biden bucks)

But realistically, with our socialist healthcare system, you would pay between $0 to $5 in cash for a 3 month script and the rest via your taxes.

It's a very bad idea to get the government involved in killing people for WHATEVER reasons because humans are really good at finding reasons to have the government kill people they don't like.

As for Slenderman, he's a great Mythos villain.

As for the two chicks, if they're done being crazy, they can go to regular prison for the rest of their sentences.
