Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?


No. There won't be. I'd like to say I believe there will be, but the way that medical testing is, it will take years for it to happen. Do I think there will be medical progress? Of course. Do I think there is a conspiracy in the medical field to keep people sick? NO. People who believe such nonsense just anger me--they're also the first to sue is something goes wrong. The medical field, has never been, nor ever will be 100%. People will never not be sick. Can we curb it? Yes. Can we as a general public help? Of course. FYI: the evil doctors making all this money you think they have--many are ER docs, and most of these NON PRIVATE hospitals, make the least amount of money. And, considering that WebMD has become so popular, it's not their fault you trusted a website over a person for so damn long.

And to those who think that cancer & HIV cures are being prevented by doctors, take a quick look at how HIV is prevented--and how prevention (USING A CONDOM) is not promoted in the USA. Abstinence is, which obviously means ignorance, since ignoring it will make it go away. OBVIOUSLY.

So no, realistically, there won't be a cure in my lifetime. I hope there are strides--and I'm sure there will be. I can only hope my grandchildren will see the produce of the efforts we make now.

For those who are newer to my journal, I'm sorry if this offends you, but as the child and grandchild of a Pharmacist and the child and sister of public hospital based doctors, I'm rather passionate about it. I may not be a doctor, or even get science enough to get what they're doing, but the villainization or sainthood of doctors is just wrong. They are people, like anyone else. I know this is a one sided rant and of course there are exceptions but from what I've experienced myself, it's just frustrating.

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

Nope.
For the same reason that there's not already a cure for cancer, or diabetes, or Parkinson's, or Lou Gehrig's  disease or any of the other bajillion debilitating diseases that affect people in the world.
Not that there aren't people out there who are legitimately trying to solve these problems but A) While we may have good medical theories on how to get rid of such things the process to which we do so is still flawed and B) There is to much money that goes into "finding the cure" than there would be for having the cure.

It wasn't that long ago that all those stories came out about a group of scientists in Canada who said they found a cure for cancer. It was pretty much non-evasive and extremely cheap. But no one would back it up or use it because the drug used to treat it was so common pharmaceutical companies couldn't trademark and sell it or something to that effect. Meanwhile there's not only millions of dollars that goes into the *treatment* of cancer but there is also tons of money going towards different organizations and "charities" that market the disease for profit.

The same thing is being done for AIDS already. There might be a day when we can find a cure for these horrible diseases, just like when people found the vaccine for polio and small pox almost a hundred years ago, but I don't know that I'll ever see it. But for what it's worth I'd hope to be wrong.

I'm bored tonight... if you can tell...

Anyway if your talking about curing any kind of Virus out right, the answer would be... No I don't think it possible, as Virus's mutate and new strains are found like yearly if not monthly. There is sadly money to think of as you can't even go to the ER room anymore for something as simple as a sprain ankle without paying $1000's That is with crappy medical insurance, because it's almost impossible to afford good insurance, especially if your overweight, so all hope of affording the cure is lost for most people. However I do think some strains of the Virus's known in this world could be cured, but again it's going to come down to money and depend if you can get good insurance or just be able to afford it out right.

I think maybe monkey lymphocytes might be useful in treating HIV infections if caught early enough, and maybe better drugs will be developed for people with AIDS. But I think it's not very probable that a cure for AIDS will be found in my lifetime.

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

It's literally impossible to 'cure' a virus.  You have to kill off whatever it is that can carry the virus and hope the thing doesn't mutate.  In this situation, that would require killing off all humanity.  So CURING AIDS?  Not going to happen.  

However.  Really virulent viruses that kill of their hosts before the virus has a chance to spread kinda shoot themselves in the foot.  AIDS is in the process of becoming (call me twisted) a more 'people friendly' beast.  Still deadly.  Still horrifying.  Hell of a lot more treatable.  Are we going to get to the point where we can manage the symptoms so that people with this virus can actually function?  Dude, we could do that in the next quarter century.  Let alone before I pass on.

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

It's a bit depressing how many people think there's a huge conspiracy to hide a cure... 

There probably will be a cure, but not this year, and probably not in ten years. I'd be surprised if AIDS wasn't completely curable by the end of this century, though (and I can expect to see most of it, barring accidents). Eighty years ago Fleming had only just discovered penicillin - a century is a long, long term in medical science. Until then it'll be slow steps.

In the meantime raising money for the Terrence Higgins Trust seems like a good thing to do. Some of us did the Walk for Life last month and we'll do it again next year, thanks to everyone who sponsored us!

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

It could go either way. On one hand AIDS is continuously evolving and the scientists are not able to keep up in trying to develop a cure. And since there is no cure there is no natural defense to AIDS. On the other hand, scientists are upping there technology abilities every day. They just keep getting better. Though due to Darwin's Natural Selection Theory, eventually AIDS should die out. This would be true because scientists have already found a way to stop AIDS from passing on to another child from a pregnant women. But, since not every one knows they have AIDS before they have kids, it will most likely keep passing on from generation to generation.

Меня поразил диагноз моего хорошего друга. На днях он демонстрировал мне шрам во всю длину бокового ребра, и рассказывал абсолютно невероятную историю. Невероятную настолько, что на его лечение выделили грант в американской эндоскопической клинике. С обнаруженным у Жени врожденным порогом сердца люди обычно не доживают и до 15 лет, так что в 30 это действительно случай практически беспрецедентный в медицинской практике. Самое мутное в этой истории, то, что недуг так и не обнаружился бы - не пойди мой знакомый на внеплановое обследование. Операцию все же предпочли сделать в России, правда уже полостную. Рассказывать подробности не буду, но скажу, что эта ехидная морда наговорит мне в жизни еще много пошлых шуток!
Тема сердечная - одна из самых распространенных в области различных проблем со здоровьем. Мою семью этот ужас также стороной не обошел. Причин может быть много, но те, на которые мы можем оказывать влияние вполне практичны: ешьте, дышите, укрепляйте, берегите! 
Желаю всем крепкого здоровья, долгих лет жизни и теплых отношений с горячо любимыми всем сердцем людьми.

Really, I don't know. Like Cancer, a hell of a lot of research has gone into finding a cure for AIDS and, sadly, they haven't found anything yet. I vaguely remember reading that they were looking into tropical plants that are found in the rainforests, but I don't know what came of that. The way the rainforest is being destroyed it's quite likely that if the cure could be found there then humans have probably driven it to extinction.
But I really hope they Do find a cure, I'd like to hope they will.

this is my personal advice :) like really, if you find a wad of cash, you've NO idea who it
belongs to. it could be a millioaire, but it could be anything! it could even be a smart person
who is trying to mess with your mind and it's not even real money. like it's conterfit and he's
setting people up to test his methods with ink, like to see if he can fake a 100% more than 50/50.
could be a serial killer FEMALE pretending to be a male to lour lesbians! you've NO IDEA. but
if you look at it like a wad of cash, and thats whats going through your mind like "WOW! this is
a LOT of money" then you really need to be smart. it's best to do one of two things, if, IF you
have a reliable police officer or fireman or a really good uncle or you can really trust your
dad, like i dont mean just kiss ass trust, i mean like real trust. like that those people will
try to return the money trust or solve the crime trust, THAN touch; otherways, leave it the hell
alone, it's not your money, and "not your money, in YOUR HANDS, is BAD"; basically.

This actually just happened not to long ago near where I live which can be read about here this is only part of the story though as Dallas county wanted to keep the money for their own  use and the girl that found the money and turned it in ended up on the news and the rest of the story can be read about here.

With all that said, and if I had found a wad of cash, I would have done what the girl did, I would have turned it in because everyone drops stuff or lays it somewhere and forgets it occasionally and you never know if that item or money or whatever it is, is going to be needed or important for someone survival or something. However if the money or item is never claimed I don't know if I would expect it or part of it back, but I would want a say in how the item or money is used/spent as a lot of people would have taken the money and ran with it and I think that is fair since the right action was taken.

If you found a wad of cash on the ground, would you keep it? Donate it? Take it to the police?

That actually did happen to me. Christmas of 2007, I was working at a mall, and after closing, I found someone's purse sitting in a Sears shopping cart in the parking lot. 
It was white leather, pretty nice, actually, and gaping open, so being the infinitely curious sod that I am I peeked inside to see if there was any cocaine. Yes, that was what went through my head [not the nicest part of town] and no there wasn't, so as far as I know I didn't fuck up anyone's drug deal. But there was a bank deposit bag inside. 

Mall. Christmas. Store deposit bag. ... the temptation was immense. But I took the bag to the police, because once, many moons ago, someone found my purse laying on the shore of a lake and turned it in, so I guess... I was karmically paying it forward? 

... course when I got mine back there wasn't a deposit bag full of cash and credit card slips in it, so... maybe I'm just a nice person. 

I kick myself every time my bank account runs low for not swiping the cash before I turned the bag in, but *shrugs* at least this way I don't have to feel guilty.

My biggest regret is not finishing school the first time around when it was easier. I let too much affect my mood and well being and basically saw not going to school to make myself feel better as an option. I know how dumb it sounds now that I am older but back then my emotions were everything. It still plagues me and I have returned back to school so I guess i have learned from it somehow.

If you found a wad of cash on the ground, would you keep it? Donate it? Take it to the police?

I wish I'd say I'd take it to the police.. but I guess it really depends on where it was found. If it was at or near my work, I'd take it in to there and let them know. But if it was just like in the grass when I'm walking for exercise or taking my girl to the park.... it might be really tempting to keep it. There are so many little things I'd love to be able to get her. :)

I kinda do follow the "What falls to the floor, comes to the door" saying.... and when I have dropped money accidentally or the wind blows it to the floor, its usually an omen that somewhere extra money might be showing up. Or the itchy left hand = money and play the lotto.

So if either of those two happened before finding the money, it would pretty much be pocketed. It'd be like a gift from God/ Mother Nature, whatever you want to call the "It".

Sure, the pros are obvious—but what are the cons of having a friend with benefits?



I think FWB is bullshit....in the end someone always ends up developing feelings. See pretty much every single movie centered around this. it's inevitable that someone will be hurt and your friendship won't be the same with that person.



i'm not saying that i'm against this but if they're considered a good friend, then it's not worth it.
only way this works is if you have no ~emotional~ connection to them, you both merely are just using each other to get off. totally with that...but I know first hand you may get hurt in that situation too. so, con is someone always ends up hurting.

I actually was in a similar but more complex situation. I once came across a whole pile of what looked to be limited use debit cards and gift cards. All had one person's name on it. What did I do? Well, I'm not proud of myself, but after trying to figure out what to do for about 5 minutes, I eventually just walked away; I was horribly late for something as it was, and that took priority. Still, I could have scooped up the cards and called the police later, or... I dunno. Honestly, it was entirely possible that the cards were all empty and the person just dumped them there to get rid of them.

Still, not a memory where I am proud of myself.

That is such a difficult question.  If you are talking about a lot of money someone is going to need that.  It could be someones rent payment, grocery money, or entire lively hood.  To keep it would be wrong.  The problem comes in finding who it truly belongs.  I would first search the area for someone that looks panic.  Someone searching for something.  If that doesn't work then I would turn it.  In 30 days I would get back if no one came forward for it.  I could then use it with a clean conscience knowing I gave my best effort to find the real owner.

No, I honestly don't. Sadly.
The reason for this is the fact that the medicinal companies make too much money off of this horrible disease, so the conspiracy theorest in me thinks that the search for the cure will not be found until it can pay off enough for the people in charge .- or to take it to the next level, maybe the cure is already found but not released to the general public for the before mentioned reason...

I don't know, but I do know that the most important thing in the world to most people is money, and until that changes; no, I don't think there's gonna be a cure...

Well, if I'm finding a wad of cash on the ground, that would mean there's no one else around or else it would probably be picked up already. And since there's no one around, there'd be no one to ask "Did you drop this?" to.

So uh, to be perfectly honest, I would keep it. o__o Unless it's some absurd amount like 30 grand in new bills...then I'd probably go to the police with it because maybe someone stole it from a bank or withdrew it to pay for their grandma's surgery or something.

One time I *did* find a big wad of cash - hundreds of dollars - on the floor of a grocery store. It was wrapped in a rubber band. I thought it might be some old man who lost his social security money or something so there was no way I would just take it. I gave it to the store manager. Later, I thought that was stupid. I should have left my number for the manager and kept the money in case someone came looking for it. Who knows if the manager was honest?

At this point in time unless the owner was there, or I knew who it was, I would prefer to keep it only because I'm so poor right now. If I Could get it back to the owner in person, I would try, presuming I knew it wasn't stolen or the proceeds of a criminal enterprise. If I knew it was I might leave it alone or take it to the police. I guess it really depends.

I could do any of those things right now. I want to do the right thing overall, but at this desperate point in my life I'd do anything to get free of my crappy life. So I'd probably keep it.

I've learned that taking it to the police is basically just putting it into the pocket of the person I hand it to. The best idea (which I've done before) is to wait around for someone who seems to be looking frantically for something, then ask them to describe what they lost. If that doesn't work, perhaps I might post a sign in the area saying I found "something". If all that didn't work, I'd donate it.

As someone else said, if I found a wallet that happened to have a lot of money in it, I would turn it in to the police. Just a lot of money in a plain money clip... it's mine.

Writer's Block: AIDS Walk

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

I don't want to sound bleak, but considering the amount of research poured on the progress of our medical advancements, it will be a very long time before we will be able to stumble upon a possible cure for a disease that seems incurable no matter what we try. We can't even defend ourselves against hybrid flu viruses, so how do we expect ourselves to beat AIDS with our current standing?

Вопрос дня: Ошибки

Каждый день я сожалею о том, что сейчас живу среди неверных. А сделать все равно ничего не могу, у нас вообще сейчас война( с ними же самыми, кстати). Замочить их всех чтоли как нибудь с утреца...от греха подальше, пока опять в нашу страну не приперлись...

This has happened to me actually, though it wasn't a wad but $50.00.  It was around christmas time so we just dropped it off with one of those charity people who stand outside the liquor store around that time :) Good Karma!

I'd take it to the local police (and hope none of them decide to keep it a secret!)

The way I look at it is, it ain't mine! I have no desire to use something I haven't bought or earned. It's just a wad of paper as far as I'm concerned. My conscience would not allow me to keep it for myself or even to donate it to charity. If that money was lost then somebody obviously lost it and is in pretty big trouble. I know how I'd feel in those circumstances so why put it on someone else?

When I worked at the laundry we'd find a lose bill or two but one day around Christmas someone had put their whole paycheck in there! The other girl was all pleased at the bounty but all I could think of was; that guy and his family are going to have one lousy Christmas.
