Moppy It's not really that ironic because

Gorillas are not monkeys!!!

Sorry. Just had to be said!
2001-07-31 11:13:16 PM  
oboy. seriousness. that's a bad thing here on the net, isn't it? 'specially here on fark. *sigh* yea, now you've got me babbling too... I just wanted to state the irony of the AIDS post while Animal Planet has a 24-hour special on how the now most AIDS-infected people spent their lives killing relatives of what started the virus. yes, irony. actually - irony is quite similar to comedy, is it not? hey - that means it's not seriousness... *shakes his head* guess you just had to say something, huh?
2001-07-31 11:14:06 PM  
oh yeah - check the last post - I said "relatives". Of course, they are your relatives as well, relatively speaking. :P

I know, Mop... just that a lot of people think Apes are monkeys.

Can gorillas can even get SIV? there are a total of 26 species of non-human primates that are known to be capable of being carriers, but I'm not sure which ones are each, and which ones carry it in the wild.

I guess it is possible that gorillas can be carriers - could that explain the high concentration of infected Botswana people? (contact with carrier gorilla blood frm hunting / poaching)
i wonder...

Moppy Incredibly few people, from Botswana or not have ever had contact with a wild gorilla. The AIDS pandemic is social and economic... CNN says there are higher incidences of transmission because of "poverty, ignorance, the prohibitive cost of AIDS drugs, an aversion to discussing sex and, some say, promiscuity."

Gorillas certainly have nothing to do with it. Some of the most HIV infected places are nowhere near gorillas...

Ignore the bullshat. Be smart. Wrap that rascal!

OcterDoctopus im starting to think you have issues with Mormons. Just call it a hunch.
2001-08-01 01:07:08 AM  
No, no, no!

I'm not a mormon.

I'm not a Doctor, and I don't play one on TV.

Nor am I an Octopus!
2001-08-01 01:07:32 AM  
Actually only vegemite morms.
2001-08-01 01:14:39 AM  
What's the deal OcterDoctopus you live in Utah???? Just curious.

I am amazed that some people care what goes on in S. Africa.
Let them kill themselves to oblivion. Oh well. Not my country, not my problem.
Maybe if they all die off, we can stop sending the million of dollars of foreign aid to that country.

I can think of better uses for that money.

Ahh, : Keyser Soze (as the movie guy is spelled, not to say yours is spelled wrong, just different).

The great fallacy.

To wit: the belief that Utahns (or Utards) think they have the mormon market cornered! Oh yeah, I'm not saying you said this, either, as you clearly made no such statement. But Morms are Everywhere!!! People must realize this.

SLC, me no. Been there many times. Some good stuff. But even hell has some good stuff.
2001-08-01 02:19:15 AM  
Insidious vegemite.

I personally think its a good idea to teach that abstinence is the best way to prevent disease, and you don't need to rush into sex etc. But I really think that in the Africa case, it has to be combined with education about condoms. People don't just listen to what educators have to say and go "You know, he's right, I think I will stop bonking people RIGHT NOW, until I'm married." Its going to take time, so in the meantime teach that if you are going to have sex, then do it safely.

Pure curiosity!

1. Are you male or female?

2. See many Mormon missionaries in Japan?

3. I think uni sucks. Do you?

4. Do your kids like Doraemon?
2001-08-01 10:58:05 AM  
Do you think that having condoms available increases sex 100fold?

If so, I am buying a box of 144 and letting my wife know tonight. Heheheh!

Catholics have it all wrong when it comes to sex. Sex is meant to be an expression of love between HUSBAND AND WIFE. Children, if wanted, are a nice bonus.

As for those Africans, just tell them to keep it in their pants! Start separating boys and girls if you have to...oh wait...that might not work so well....
