Well then why do people get Type 1 when nobody in their family has had type 1 or type 2?...

I find the majority of them are one or two issue voters and typically it is about an issue that I couldn't care less about, like abortions or gay marriage. IMO these are like the 510th most important things that face our nation....

[quote]Type 1- all genetics [/quote]
If you mean this is something they inherit then that is not true, it comes around even when nobody in your family has it. If you mean it is something they are born with then yes this is mostly true. Also, there are a lot of unhealthy people that start off as t...

Is it just me or do y'all know a lot of upper 20 year olds that still live on their parents dime (rent/allowance/bills paid)? I blame this on the parents more so than the kids because if the parents don't cut them off they have no incentive (works like welfare).
