I had no idea that there were so many Mexicans on DL.
I'd fuck him if he sang "How Soon is Now?" into my ear the entire time.
No matter how bad the NHS is British people always return home when they are ill.
Is he Still Ill?
Do you really think he'll pull through?
I know, it's serious.
I was only joking when I said he should be bludgeoned in his bed.
Moz scheduled, then canceled, three dates in my town. Then he went and booked a South American tour. What a cunt!
r24, same here. He's a cunty twat, and I'm as angry about this I JUST CAN'T GO ON shit as I am about Dallas 1992 when he let the fans rush the stage and take him down. I paid for more than a 45-min show then, and I've always thought he owed me. And now it seems like it's simply red America give-no-fucks with the scheduling of more touring...I mean, don't even TRY to hide your scorn, Moz. And I wont hide mine.
I came across this passage in a NYT article by Michael Pollan and thought it was relevant to this thread, given Moz's particular health issues:
[quote]One bacterium commonly found in the non-Western microbiome but nearly extinct in ours is a corkscrew-shaped inhabitant of the stomach by the name of Helicobacter pylori. Dominguez-Bello’s husband, Martin Blaser, a physician and microbiologist at N.Y.U., has been studying H. pylori since the mid-1980s and is convinced that it is an endangered species, the extinction of which we may someday rue. According to the “missing microbiota hypothesis,” we depend on microbes like H. pylori to regulate various metabolic and immune functions, and their disappearance is disordering those systems. The loss is cumulative: “Each generation is passing on fewer of these microbes,” Blaser told me, with the result that the Western microbiome is being progressively impoverished.
[quote]He calls H. pylori the “poster child” for the missing microbes and says medicine has actually been trying to exterminate it since 1983, when Australian scientists proposed that the microbe was responsible for peptic ulcers; it has since been implicated in stomach cancer as well. But H. pylori is a most complicated character, the entire spectrum of microbial good and evil rolled into one bug. Scientists learned that H. pylori also plays a role in regulating acid in the stomach. Presumably it does this to render its preferred habitat inhospitable to competitors, but the effect on its host can be salutary. People without H. pylori may not get peptic ulcers, but they frequently do suffer from acid reflux. Untreated, this can lead to Barrett’s esophagus and, eventually, a certain type of esophageal cancer, rates of which have soared in the West as H. pylori has gone missing.
