..And New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Franciso and Seattle.

It looks like all this is saying is that you can't get rid of the clap by taking a dose of pennicillin anymore. Be afraid when it starts getting resistent to methicillin and vancomycin.

Hurrah for polyform antibiotics!

I blame retards who insist on getting antibiotics prescribed for the sniffles.

You give the gays the marriage, and see what happens! Pat Robertson's God is angry!

I blame retards who insist on getting antibiotics prescribed for the sniffles, and then quit taking their prescription when they start to feel better (leaving the strongest strains alive).

Oh, and carnies.

can you catch this from eating out of a restaurant sink?

"Because people with gonorrhea have open sores on their genitals,"

"Hey baby, nice genital warts. Lets do it." (???)

This is what happens when people stop taking their damn prescriptions as soon as the symptoms go away. I hope they're happy with their new-and-improved burning sensations.

Rejoice when you only get crabs.

You know, I'VE never had any trouble with STD's.

The secret? Only have sex with virgins!
 
2004-03-10 10:48:19 AM
What happens when antibiotics don't work anymore? The people too stupid to either abstain or bag it all die off. Darwin in action.

Note to self - bang all the skanks in Mass, NY, LA, Chi town, SF and Seattle that thats_a_lot_of_nuts passes on!

Sorry to hear you're not gettin' any.

With the arrival of potent drugs to control HIV infections, AIDS no longer commands the fear it once did.

It's called thinning the herd, people.
 
2004-03-10 10:50:22 AM
well, it's a good thing that I'm over here at Chico State, where nobody EVER gets an STD.

Oh, did I say "nobody?" I meant, "1 in 4 students"

My lack of a sex life saves me yet again.

Why does it burn when I pee??
 
2004-03-10 10:53:15 AM
Should have had an Obvious tag.

Actually, they diseases were originally brought back by servicemen serving in countries that had easy access to antibiotics, like Germany. They would self medicate and not fully cure the infection. This is why penicillin became ineffective.
 
2004-03-10 10:53:30 AM
At first I thought..."Man. That's farking scary!" Then I thought, "what am I worried about?" THEN I thought, "FARK! Bastard ex-husband cheated on me."

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I'll bet they tax it.

I live in Boston and my solution to this is to not date townies.
 
2004-03-10 10:56:49 AM
I keep wondering... If two virgins have sex, they cannot transmit an STD to each others. STDs can only be caught from someone else.
So how did the first person to get an STD, get it?

/sleepy

I think you can catch gonorrhea from a tractor if you are not careful.
 
2004-03-10 10:58:03 AM
Or monkeys.
 
2004-03-10 10:58:48 AM
i'm sure it has nothing to with all of the gay marriages....
can't possibly be a reflection of the morals and values of the society there....

HA HA

Doo Dah, Doo Dah!

Should I weep for the loss of this cliche in most Fark headlines? Maybe not.

Morrigan Sedai:

it is believed (urban legend?) that some gay guy farked a monkey in the late 1970's, then farked a few other guys...

other conspiracy theorists believe aliens gave it to us..

religious idiots say god did it, to plague us so we stop farking before marriage
 
2004-03-10 10:59:14 AM
Sheep eh? And how did the first sheep get it?

AAhh.

That's for AIDS. STDs have been around for centuries.

IIRC, HIV/AIDS used to be just a monkey virus, so I always assumed that some jackass shagged a monkey back in the 80's.

/probably wrong

<whine> I submitted this story with a humorous headline earlier, I mean if you can't laugh at gonorrhea, what can you laugh at? </whine>

Thank gawd there are still lots of kittens to kill....
 
2004-03-10 11:01:37 AM
Fark me. Better go see the doctor.

Crossbuster -

Whoo-hoo Chico State. I was there in '87 when Playboy gave us the #1 party school designation. Riots ensued. The car-burning type.

Nice to see not much has changed.
 
2004-03-10 11:02:51 AM
It's those dang teens who won't keep their promise to abstain... if it weren't for those meddlin' kids...

from what i remember is the AIDS virus was seen in the 1920's or 30's and was never given a proper name or it wasnt understood as it is now, and that researchers have identified causes of death that are now connected to AIDS.

i am most likely wrong, but i remember watching something about it on tv, maybe its some other disease

Dr. Susan Wang. wow, that is purrrfect
