    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Man has 'world's worst' super-gonorrhoea - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-43571120

    A man in the UK has caught the world's "worst-ever" case of super-gonorrhoea.

    He had a regular partner in the UK, but picked up the superbug after a sexual encounter with a woman in south-east Asia.

    Public Health England says it is the first time the infection cannot be cured with first choice antibiotics.

    Dude's a public health hazard. I hope they're keeping tabs on him! I hope he didn't give it to his partner, who I'm assuming he cheated on with the infected individual?

    Imagine how shocking it must be to hear that you have a curable STD.....only you’re the first case of it not being cured.
