HIV is the virus which often leads to AIDS, which is a "syndrome." Magic Johnson never developed AIDS because his HIV was found and treated and apparently kept in check before it could lead to AIDS. There are many, MANY people who have been HIV positive for more than 15 years, as Magic has. All kept from developing AIDS thanks to their medication. Magic is not "the only cured AIDS guy ever" since, as I said, he never had AIDS. Nor is he the only "15+-year-HIV-positive-non-AIDS-developing guy" either.

OK that's farking stupid, but the line that he's "the only cured AIDS guy ever" made me LOL. Too bad I don't think they were joking.

Apparently this guy hasn't heard of injecting $180,000 directly into the bloodstream.
 
2008-10-09 05:41:35 PM
I say he should put his money where his mouth is and let Magic buttfark him.

I like how they present the conversation in paragraph form, and then repeat it in transcript form. You know, in case you don't like reading paragraphs.

Oh, it's two guys from KTLK, the station that has billboards with that giant douchenozzle Rush Limbaugh all over town.

Now it all makes sense.

I was being an asshole. Though I didn't see it had already been done, I was sarcastically pointing out the predictability of Fark. (please note, I already admitted to being an asshole)

They don't call him "magic" for nothing.

Ah. Such deep insight from a guy who's pasting Freeper links still trying to find proof Obama isn't a citizen.

How do farktards like this end up on the radio? I want their job.

Oh, you should hear Rod Parsley talk about how his church has cured AIDS and cancer. I'm proud to say I've been forcibly removed and banned from his "church."

I always thought those were pretty funny. They all say, "Big Talker. Big Station." Wasn't, "big talker" a popular schoolyard insult, typically levied at those who were prone to letting their mouths write checks their asses couldn't cash? Blowhard braggarts who were all hot air and no spine? Seems to fit.

I hate those farking billboards. It's taken every ounce of restraint I have not to stick a can of Rust-Oleum in my teeth like a pirate with a pigsticker, and climb the mizzenmast of one of the ones with Hannity's smug puss on it, just so I can spray "ASSHOLE" 10 feet high across his forehead. Mostly, what stops me is that I'm better than he is, hand have no interest in sinking to his level.

I figured it was Baker.

Still, he sounds liberal after Rush, which isn't saying much.

I got a new radio a few months ago, and I went through the 'find station' button programming stuff into the presets, not really knowing what they are. Somehow I managed to think KTLK was some music station, because it ended up on one of my presets. I guess I must have hit it right as they do an intro into some right-wing talking head. It's usually some catchy classic.

Anyway, I started listening to this shat on my way to lunch.

OMG...

I had quit. Not only was I yelling at the computer all morning because of all the right-wing forum tards, I then continued yelling all the way to Qdoba because of KTLK.

My blood pressure couldn't handle it.

There used to be a radio host in San Francisco that said Magic Johnson was gay, he would go on and on about it, used to say SF was a small city & the gay club scene was even smaller He wanted Johnson to sue him but he nor the station was ever sued.

There's at least one, probably several now, identified factors associated with "nonprogressors"- people who have had HIV for 10 yrs or more without developing AIDS. Also those or other factors make it less likely to contract HIV in the first place.

It's fairly likely that Magic is just lucky and has these factors, though it could also be outstanding medical treatment. Of course lucky is a matter of perception, I would think not getting HIV to begin with would be lucky.

Kinda funky when you think about it- they feature some inspirational person living with HIV for a long time and they'll probably credit a positive attitude and good nutrition and all but it may just come down to an inherent natural immunity. The consequence of that is that technically it may render all that individual's story and recommendations invalid. Well, not applicable to another listener's case at least.

Oh noes! Mean people on the radio making fun of a millionaire basketball guy who claimed to be cured of aids.

such horror
 
2008-10-09 10:21:05 PM
He does in fact have AIDS.

It was always well known that he blew a Piston.

Not knowing the radio guys involved, I would like to think it was maybe taken out of context, or meant as satire.

Problem is that I've been lurking FReeper threads for a laugh, and some of those goons actually think this stuff. One FReeper in particular likes to ramble on and on about the scientific proof that HIV doesn't lead to aids, that all AIDS drugs are scams by big pharma, and that Magic is in on the whole deal. He's a YEC too, go figure.

Ever wonder what they do with your TF money? I always thought it was purchase redundant servers/clusters. I guess it was just drink beer and hit reboot.

"I am convinced Magic faked AIDS."

Are you sure?

Are you HIV positive?
 
2008-10-09 10:45:11 PM
Poor guy, does he even get to have sex with his wife? If I was his wife I wouldn't take the chance. Though they are rich and can afford antiviral drugs for two people, so maybe she loves him that much.

A coworker of mine says that the cure for AIDS is a cold can of Pepsi, 4 slices of american cheese and 2 extra strength tylenol. Can anyone verify this?
