    Sign me up for that, i hate condoms lol
    I hear syphilis is making a real comeback on a global scale, and there is now an antibiotic-resistant strain of Gonorrhea going around. Keep the condoms.
    I'm sure he was joking, but it really is crazy how often you hear people with that as a real thought process. "if it ain't HIV, I don't care".

    People absolutely think that. Now that they have this new injection drug that helps to prevent HIV infection, plenty of people are excited about abandoning the condom. My own friend, who is quite freshly out of the closet in his late 20s, and so is really, really making up for lost time and sowing his wild oats right now, said that he's excited about the prospect of no more condoms because he got that injection. I could hardly believe my ears, but apparently that is what all the people he's sleeping with are thinking too. :tired_face:

    I think it's weird they call the damn thing a crisper.

    "Hey, Jiankui, let's put 'er in the crisper and see what comes out!"

    "Oh,  shit man, I burned another one!"

    I was very confused when I saw this in the other thread. LOL
    Haha.  At this point in my life, that how I am half the time.  Very confused.  :lol:

    Yeah, and Brian, take comfort in the fact that, no matter how confused you may get, your President will always be far more confused than you are. :lol:
