My mother got diagnosed two months ago. Since then she lost the ability to walk, talk and eat. All in a span of six months of weird symptoms.
She’ll probably wont live another month.
So much that has to be researched with this hideous disease. So when you see someone raising money for research, please give.

The Open Ocean.
Hundreds of feet deep, with nothing but water, darkness below, and the terrifying thought that something is going to catch you.
Even worse, being in the middle of the open ocean. I mean just down there, in the water, with no way or telling what’s around you. It’s horrifying to think that you’re still so vulnerable.

Child porn and torture porn. A BDSM fetish is one thing, but when it’s real or under aged it’s just awful. It’s a terrifying thought that you could be one of those victims. Also people pay to view such hideous things for their sexual amusement. Everything about that is just sick, and anyone who partakes in such a crime should face justice.
15. “Dead man’s hand” systems
“Dead man’s hand” systems, which automatically launch a massive retaliatory nuclear strike if they detect a nuclear strike in their country.
