Work has been several dreary weeks of writing fairly boring Java. On the other hand, on Monday I got to mess more with some basic Perl stuff (which gives me an excuse to troll PerlMonks). On the gripping hand, I had to do something nasty to `verify' email was coming from who I thought it was. Why can't more businesses send PGP-signed messages?
mbp: You were the pilot?
Do you have any evidence to back up your claims about the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa, or are you just shooting off? Sure, perhaps you've had sex ed. since you've been in junior high, but your own experience shows that isn't always effective (and IMSNHO won't be until there's a cure for the sex-negative outlook of so many people). What are people in South Africa supposed to do when their own government seems to be wilfully ignorant of the cause of AIDS?
Trying to tie AIDS (as a terrible disease that will kill millions) to eugenics sickens me. Do you use painkillers for headaches, or do you suffer through it unaided, as nature intended? If you get a broken arm, will you have it reset and healed, or are you going to starve and die as evolution demands?
People are getting infected, sickening and dying, and you're pillorying the people who are out there, doing something to fight the causes of the spread of this disease.
