01 12 10 - 08:53AIDS is a metaphor for our time. It's what happens when a clueless person engages in a lot of risky sex, IV drug use, or otherwise shares blood with other people engaged in clueless behaviors.
To a sane person, AIDS is nature clearing the deck for new arrivals.
To everyone else, it's a great tragedy -- those equal people were enjoying their freedom after all -- and a good chance for us to all cry together and feel so alive.
Yet AIDS, you're lagging it.
Data from the 2010 global report by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) shows that an estimated 2.6 million people became newly infected with HIV, compared with the estimated 3.1 million people infected in 1999.
Also in 2009, approximately 1.8 million people died from AIDS-related illnesses, compared with the roughly 2.1 million in 2004, according to UNAIDS. - CNN
Dear AIDS, this is... pathetic. Seven billion people, and you've knocked out under 2 million per year? While we're young, AIDS. While we're young. Why don't you just get the lead out already?
This World AIDS Day, don't celebrate AIDS like the others. They are celebrating how they feel like victims because AIDS is out there killing someone somewhere for his or her bad decisions. They like to "feel" strong emotions like sadness, but really, all their emotions boil down to self-pity. So they celebrate AIDS all while badmouthing her behind her back.
We at ANUS, on the other hand, celebrate AIDS. There are too many damn people. Most of them (90%) do nothing but make messes and blame others for them. We got that 90% idiot rating because we were unable to kill off our idiots by ourselves. So they reign.
AIDS, however, is lagging and it's time to stop celebrating AIDS, and start criticizing it. Pick up the pace, you lazy retrovirus.
