"Underdown doesn't think the initial infection was sexually transmitted because. It's highly unlikely that humans would have found the P. boisei "sexually appealing," he says. "

Seems the anthropologist doesn't understand the male human very well.

668NeighborOfTheBeast: LesserEvil: The first human got herpes? Damn, it didn't even wait until the second or third human to strike. We never had a chance.

Look at your avatar, pretty sure you're safe bro.


I wish that were so, but your mom had other plans.

Don't worry, dogs can't transmit it.

snoopy2zero: Hmmmmm, I guess I now know who my X-girlfriend  was with before me.

Truly the worst woman I have ever dated and giving me HSV2 is like 4-5 on the list of things that made her awful.  #1 is lieing to me about having cancer twice in order to prolong the relationship.

Good times


You should set the new high score for strikeouts at the next Fark party

Seems the answer is present in the question.
