What's That About?

I just watched an episode of Law and Order: SVU. And in this episode there was a doctor who thought that HIV didn't cause AIDS. There are a lot of people that believe crazy things like that with out looking at the scientific proof. Sure you can't believe everything you read, but I can't
understand why people would choose to ignore scientific proof when it comes to medical and other scientifically based areas of study. It is as if people are looking for an conspiracy. I enjoy a good conspiracy as much as the next person, and sure drug companies could be manufacturing the most expensive placebos I have ever heard of, but why? I take an expensive drug that is not generic in the USA yet, it is $284 (without insurance) for a 30 day supply. It is expensive, but I know that it doesn't cause my problem, it doesn't exacerbate it. It fixes it. It just annoys me that people choose to ignore information to fit into their happy little bubble. I guess that is why I don't believe in gods either. You cannot ignore science, it is the only truth we have in this world...or is that a conspiracy too?

Halloween Horror Movies

I love Halloween! Can anyone recommend to me a good scary movie? I've seen a lot of them over the years. Most I don't find too scary. Gross yes, scary no. Do your best! What can I watch that will scare the shit out of me? Or something really cheezy, I like those too.

Ghost and demon type movies don't really scare me for the reason that I don't believe in them, but I love them anyway, and what is there besides those and murderous slasher flicks anyhow. Please post your suggestions.
