Mad Cow BS was actually informative.

As strange as it feels, I did learn something from the Mad Cow BS that took place in South Korea. And I am not talking about something that takes a dig at Koreans.

A friend's mother has Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease. I actually knew a little about it because of all the info (real and made up) floating around during the BSE BS.

What a nasty fricking disease. :( It can incubate for decades, 60 or 70 years and then just strike. When it hits life expectancy is measured in weeks. Talk about something that makes you feel impotent. All my friend can do is wait and be there for her mom, even though her mom doesn't always know who she is. :(
