    I agree - it will be interesting to know if they can figure out how to cure it.

    Funny, that cheap doctor says he needs "funding" to fly the guy back to the US... so that he (the doctor) could do research (and become more famous). That would cost $2047 to go from Jakarta to Los Angeles. Leaving in four days....not even planning ahead.

    Don't wanna wait tables for that guy...
