Tarzan had been living alone in his jungle kingdom for 30 years with only apes for company, and suitably shaped holes in trees for sex. Jane, a reporter, came to Africa in search of this legendary figure. Deep in the wild she came to a clearing and discovered Tarzan vigorously thrusting into a jungle oak. She watched in awe for a while.

Finally, overcome by this display of animal passion Jane came out into the open and offered herself to him. As she reclined on the wild grass Tarzan ran up to her and whacked her hard with a stick.

In pain she screamed, "What the hell did you do that for?"

Tarzan replies, "Always check for bees first."

destroying the HIV virus before it has a chance to cause infection.

We already have prophylactic treatments.

Start makin' a cure, already. Bacteria are already winning the war on medicine. If we don't find a way to cure virii soon, we're back to the 1800's .

How exactly do you intend to treat gay men using a vaginal gel?

Some guys can do anything once but others just run for the hills when the "V" word comes up.

Maybe that's why I said virii, smarty pants.

Right now we CAN'T cure any viral infections. When bacteria are eventually immune to antibiotics we'll no longer have a cure for anything.

So if we don't start curing the virii, we're going to wind up back at square one with only myths of doctors who could do anything useful.

That's the newer PC version of the joke.

Before Young Bull could get married, he had to go prove himself to a certain amount of trees.(typically a drawn out conversation between YB and an elder)
On the wedding night, he hits her with a stick, etc.

Hey subby, would you look at bread mold and say "antiobiotics!"?

If that answer is no, don't submit these kind of headlines. Sometimes the biggest medical breakthroughs are the least expected.

All things considered, HIV is pretty easy to kill prior to it infecting. Heck, even out in the open air, it can't live without a host for more 30 seconds or so.  (Needles are only infectuous because its stuck within an air-tight seal).

Once, infection occurs, though, you're stuck because the means in which your body is supposed to attack it (your immune system) is actually tricked into helping it propagate.

So, does this mean that South African men will rape bees to cure themselves of AIDS?
 
2013-03-18 07:27:50 PM
But does it sting?  Could it cause anything to swell up?

Please stop saying "virii."  It is etymologically wrong, and simply not the plural that people who actually treat or study viruses use.  Stop it.

That's what I thought.

What about anal lube?  The gay community would probably appreciate that more.

Bee venom gel in my vagina?  Killing the HIV virus present in the semen deposited by my twelfth anonymous sexual partner in the past three weeks?
 
2013-03-18 08:47:49 PM
Who has these ideas?  I mean, did someone get their intimate parts stung by a bee one day and think "you know what?  This hurts so damn much I bet it would kill HIV!" and then patent that idea.

Or was it one of those "find 999 things to put in your vagina that DON'T kill HIV" kinds of things, like Edison discovering all the ways not to make a light bulb?  Tabasco?  Nope.  Lego?  Nope.  Gummy bears?  Nope.  Bee venom?  Wait- it's working!!!  Damn, why did I go in reverse alphabetical order??? I could have saved years!!!  Now somebody get me a tissue...
 
2013-03-18 08:53:42 PM
at first i was distracted by the prostitutes' reactions to the bleach, but hell if i'm getting AIDS. i've kind of grown accustomed to it, tho, and now i even look forward to the bleaching as part of the regular foreplay routine. so thanks for the bee jelly; i know you guys mean well, but i think i'll just stick with what's been proven to work.

Dear Penthouse, I never thought I would be cured of the AIDS, but there I was, with my joystick covered in sweet gel from her honeypot. She put her arms around me and begged. "Now fark me in the nose." Anything is possible, now, I guess...

tillerman35: Who has these ideas?  I mean, did someone get their intimate parts stung by a bee one day and think "you know what?  This hurts so damn much I bet it would kill HIV!" and then patent that idea.


Coincidentally, I used to collaborate with the senior author of this paper; he calls the nanoparticles "nanobees" to hook the laymen's interest. Sam got the idea because melittin, one of many components of bee venom, is a small peptide that disrupts cellular membranes. HIV is covered in stolen cell membrane thus melittin could potentially be used to essentially shred the virus. We reengineered melittin slightly to make it adsorb to the nanoparticles a bit better then the particles deliver the melittin to the viruses. Delivering the peptide this way does two things - it protects the peptide from your immune response/blood-borne proteases and also protects your cells from attack by the melittin.

A few years ago we put out a paper using melittin to treat tumors; it got some play in the regular press. This was during the early recognition of bee colony collapse. My boss got a fair number of mortified emails yelling at him for grinding up bees to take their venom. (The melittin is synthetic, no bees were harmed in the making of these manuscripts.)

My theory is much more fun.  And painful.  But thanks for the answer.  Sometimes truth ISN'T stranger than fiction.
