The monkey had been outstandingly obediant. He had fullfilled each and every task he had been told. Woken up to the greetings of his grand radio set, brushed his teeth with the newly-widely-advertised tootbrush & toothpaste, he was searching T.V channels to find a problem he could solve & practice his math with. And then the T.V sang;
- $100 million it is, the estimated amount that Gap, Apple & Motorolla have spent on marketing the RED campaign, launched a year ago to benefit the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, tuberculosis & Malaria.
- $18 million, amount the RED campaign has raised worldwide.
Calculate who has really benefitted.
The monkey's eyes rolled over for a while, then in a gorgeous immitation of normality, he put his pencil down, pretended he had to pee and quietly left the room. ---
What I don't get about executions is the presence of a doctor & the physical examinations before the act is performed! I mean hey there are only two possible conditions:
1. Normal Heart rate; the convict does not fear the process
2. Ferrari-paced heart rate; the convict might wet the floor soon.
& then in the end they kill the guy anyway when it is declared he is perfectly healthy!
Yet again, there seems to be some sort of misunderstanding-the-doctor situation. First of all, the healthy are legitimate to be killed while the sick are sometimes excused! Secondly, the young are no-doubters on the line while the old might be forgiven! Thirdly, when the doctor declares someone sane, he is a gonner while if insane can shake off the sentence!
What is all the CPR, Emergency detoxication & saving-life-efforts for when a death-sentenced convict commits suicide???
