That's cool, but actual education about how the disease is transferred would be cooler.

Aren't there still people who think that it can be cured by farking a virgin?

Take death away?

That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.

The epidemic started about 40 years ago, IIRC. Considering the advanced state of our scientific knowledge, it's been a long, difficult battle. I wonder if we will get to a point that it can be declared eradicated.

And Christians, showing what loving people they are, will do everything in their power to forbid kids from getting vaccinated. Just like with HPV, but worse, because they consider AIDS to be a Christ-blessed weapon to stab humanity in the dick with.

You know, you could have taken about 10 more keystrokes to differentiate the rest of us Christians from the fundamentalists.

Clearly, if it becomes available, we shouldn't give it to our kids because that's just giving them permission to have autistic sex.

"If ever you wanted to get a population that, if the vaccine works, you're going to know pretty quickly, then you want to go in women."

OK. That's technically true in a couple of ways.

So, if as some nutjob religious freaks believe HIV was sent by god to punish the wicked then does that mean that any vaccine would be from the devil?
 
2019-12-02 11:37:34 PM  
You can still get flu after a vaccination. This seems much higher stakes. The second hiv mutates slightly; massive outbreak.
Bottom line: party responsibly.

The "green" server started last month blank with old world same as EQ at launch circa spring 1999 and following original patch schedule so ... if you start now you might get JBoots from Najena herself ... or a manastone or rubicite.
... but you will also get fired.
... and divorced.
... and you will gain 15 pounds.

I'm not risking it.

I wonder how many Jenny McCarthy clones we'll have by then, who will express their ignorance by refusing the vaccination? I think the government needs to put certain polocies in place to counteract the effects of such people.

When I started school, every kid had to show up about a week before to get the polio vaccine. It was the law. No vaccination, no school and we did not allow home schooling then.

I still recall the big lumpy scab that formed when I got my Small Pox vaccine. Then the kind of weird looking scar that remained after it fell off. Every kid had one of those also.

We have a major, killer disease that can take decades to bring an end to people, with some nasty periods over the years in-between due to the medication. Now we have a cure possibly in sight, and I just bet you, people will refuse the vaccine.

It probably isn't going to be cheap either. I know a woman who is on Social Security Income who had Hepatitis D. She fought for years to get the medication but it was so expensive medicare would not cover it. She finally got the pills, roughly valued at $700 a peace. However, they were out of date and going to be tossed any how. Her physician got them and they worked.

Making me wonder how many thousands of working pills get tossed each year because they've reached the expired date. You can't even turn in left over, unexpired pills of any type to a pharmacy to be given out at a great discount to the needy. Those have to be tossed also.

I understand why, which is the same reason why we have safety seals on everything, but if I have a fatal disease and have a choice between used or out of date pills that can cure me, I'll risk the pills.

Would you consider the Vatican to be fundamentalists? Because I can think of no worse crime against humanity than the Catholic Church forbidding the use of condoms. They could have used their influence to actively advocate for practising safe sex. Preventing the illness is preferable to visiting the sick (which you shouldn't stop doing, of course).

And back to the post I meant to make...

"It's almost unbelievable, but it's true, women between the ages of 18 and 25 - the prevalence of infection is well over 50 percent," Fauci said.

... I don't even... Mother of God. That is indeed unbelievable.

I mean seriously, the only group in the US that's over 50% positive are inner city IV drug users afaik. But instead of junkies we're talking half of an ENTIRE GENERATION as good as gone?

How is this even possible?

Me too. Started on an 11/780, moved on to an 11/785, ended up on a cluster with two 8800s and two 8700s. Best command line interface ever.

Sysops of the 11/780 had an advertising poster for a UK vacuum cleaner brand on prominent display: "Nothing Sucks Like a VAX".

The real thing to be afraid of is Super AIDS. It's a strain of HIV resistant to all known treatment. One teaspoon of superaids in your butt and youre dead in a month.

So remember Butters - theres nothing to be afraid of. Except Super AIDS.
