  1. Why Not Debate This?

    I'd vote for Ron Paul.
  2. Hmmm...

    Flying Cross is a very nice location. Good luck!
  3. Scientists Cure Cancer?

    I believe if you read my post in its entirety you would have understood that I was not saying viruses are the sole cause for cancer. There are many factors like I stated in my original post.
  4. Hmmm...

    If you live in KY there are tons of events at the horse park! Welcome to the fun side!
  5. Events Planned For 2011?

    Good luck! And remember its all about having fun!!
  6. Scientists Cure Cancer?

    The cause of many cancers and mutations is already largely known, with the number being close to 20% being caused by viruses, of course this number is closer to 70% with certain types of cancer. I speculate though that viruses may play a larger role in the development of cancer then we currently believe. Genes, toxins, radiation, and the good ol' oops in cleavage points all play a role as well.
  7. How Much Would You Spend To Save Your Horse?

    Anything that would put me in sever financial despair is too far. I once was a home visiting vet tech for a family, they had a dog that had DDD (degenerative disc disease) the dog had 3 spinal surgeries. The family had to take a second mortgage out on their home, use their child's college fund, and depleted their retirement account. The problem with DDD is it NEVER gets better it only gets worse with time. The dog died 5 months later from a spinal fracture they could not repair. That is too far. To me no animal is worth ruining your life over.
  8. The Rapture On The 21St?

    Does this mean I don't have to repay my student loans?
  9. About Those Aggravating Gas Prices --

    It will be interesting to see how the economy handles a $6 gallon of gas. My predication, is it wont handle it too well. Gas prices effect everything, not just our daily commute. Essentially everything carried by fright will go up in price, including food. It seems every time gas reaches $4 a gallon the oil companies report recored profit margins. Reminds me of Enron.
  10. Should All Horses Be Tested For Eia?

    Oh well thats alarming. I am located in Jackson county. I use Dr. Miles for somethings too... small world.
  11. Should All Horses Be Tested For Eia?

    I am located in Southern IL too, I haven't heard of any reported EIA cases down here? Last I heard there were 2 reported cases from Michigan this year? I also think that horses should be tested yearly for the virus. Note that the disease can not be transmitted through mosquitoes. Its vector are biting flies, primarily the horsefly. The virus can only survive 15-30 minutes in the fly so horses need to be in close proximity for transmission to occur. With this I understand why the test is not mandated for all horses, but I really think that if it was we could reduce the spread of EIA even more.
  12. Tipping

    I have only once never tipped a waitress and I stand by my actions. It was terrible service, and I hope my displeasure was conveyed. Being a college student I never eat at fancy places, about the highest scale I get is the occasional Lone Star or the likes, and I know other students work there so I try to stay in my budget but tip within service. I typically tip around 20% unless the service is terrible. At BWW one server knows some really cool card magic tricks and I have tipped him the price of my meal before.
  13. Judas.

    Thats what I got out of the song as well. A relationship with a lying abusive partner that she keeps forgiving....
  14. Irish Showjumper Charged In Theft Of Horse From Wellington

    Valued at only $28,000? You think he would try and steal a more valuable horse.
  15. Back On Track Saddle Pads

    I have been looking at getting a back on track saddle pad. When ordering it they come in the option of "firm" or "soft". Does anyone know what that means? Is firm like a normal quilt pad and soft like a baby pad?
