Not going back there - Jason Lindquist
Idle ramblings of an idle mind
Not going back there
Wise sage Dan Savage comments on the failure of a recent attempt at an HIV vaccine, trying to disabuse anyone of the notion that success should allow a return to 1970s carefree sex practices. He's speaking specifically about gay sex, but the same logic truly applies to the carefree behavior of the straight community that had the brakes applied by the spread of the herpes simplex 2 virus.

Key quote: Given the right conditions, new sexually transmitted infections can emerge and kill you and all your friends.

If we ever beat HIV and AIDS, that doesn't rule out another bug from evolving or crossing species in the future. Eddie Murphy once had a routine that talked about this comically: "you stick your dick in and explode!" Think about it. There's no reason something couldn't happen after HIV, and there's no reason it wouldn't be worse.

Also: "and stay the fuck away from meth and meth users."

You know, I don't know that I've ever met one. And I think I'm happier that way, you know?
