Damien that just isn't bright. What the hell did you expect from a list of
this sort? If everyone around here thought existing biology was just peachy
then there would be no need or desire to put that ">" symbol in front of the
"H" symbol.

And Damien I'd like you to perform a little experiment; take a stroll down
the halls of the terminal cancer ward of you local hospital and then come
back and tell me again that any dissatisfaction with the way the human body
is built and operates is a sign of a diseased mind.

So be it, if they can't get over that superstition they're dead meat anyway.
