Fundamental failure to grasp… well, anything…

AIDS denial is a favourite among the JABS bunch. So is utter stupidity, and a lack of understanding of basic English. elga chimes in with this gem:

Taking a close look at the name, AIDS, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, we can see it is a nonsense. Is someone playing a cruel joke on gullible and unsuspecting people? I can go shopping and ‘acquire’ things, or enroll in a course and ‘acquire’ extra skills in say, languages or woodworking. But how does one go about ‘acquiring’ less of something?


It's like primary school in more ways than one.

I haven't seen a Cybertiger comment on your blog since Sunday night. I'm worried - do you think he's OK?

Excellent strummer...
Maybe its one of those horrific masturbation-gone-wrong accidents you read about on the Darwin awards.

Whatever it is, let's hope it's nothing trivial.
