    #27 is true and is the exact reason I don't donate to that foundation. They line their pockets with money raised and have also tried to copyright the use of the colour pink as it relates to breast cancer. Planning to sue others for more money! Way to make a profit off such a horrible disease… so shameful.

      As posted by Ben Dover elsewhere in these comments:

      "I took some time to go through both Komen’s tax filings for 2009 as well as its Annual Report for 2009-10 (PDF), and the breakdown of expenditures goes like this: 12 percent for administration; 8 percent for fundraising; 7 percent for treatment; 15 percent for screening; 24 percent research; and 34 percent for education."

      Thanks to Ben Dover for actually doing what most can't be bothered to do… research the truth.

    Pornhub raised, and is raising, a good sum of money. You watch a 'boob' themed video, they make a donation.
    Komen refused the fucking money.

    #18 is NOT true. Yes, he died 2 years after recovering his sight, but from natural causes, not suicide. Guess you CAN'T believe everything you read on the Internet. Who knew?!

      Interesting. I once watched a documentary where an older couple, deaf since… a young age or something, received implants to allow them to hear again. They both hated the constant noise and had the implants removed.
