    but the problem with that is. Say the average person male/female sleeps with 6 other partners. If your first has say oral herpes and gives you oral, you can now have herpes down there. You can use protection while having intercourse, but other partners could contract the herpes by giving oral. And I do not think 6 partners throughout your lifetime is being promiscuous, do you?
    If you get tested every year, then those next 5 partners could have been spared contracting herpes. Males can carry herpes without ever having a flare up, but still pass it on to another partner.

    Get tested - the more you know!

    Anyhow - back on topic!

  3. How did a charity thread turn into an STD clinic? Since it has, i'll add my input to hopefully shed some light on the topic.

    STD's range from everything such as syphillis, gonnorhea, hepatitis(Mainly B,C), to Hiv/Aids. ANY std can cause longterm issues if ignored, that is a fact.

    Hiv/Aids will NEVER be solved or eradicated in any of our lifetimes. We are not even close to anything that can completely eliminate the virus(control yes, eliminate no). Even with astonishing advancements in modern medicine and current drug therapy designed to help your own immune system assist in maintaining its own health and continuously fight the virus.

    Unfortuately, the virus is smart(hiding and avoiding immunologic intervention) rapidly mutating and eventually becoming resistant to even the most up-to-date Chemo-prophylactic therapy. Prevention is ABSOLUTELY key here.

    I see the longterm results of those that choose to ignore it all the time. Be smart or be prepared to pay the consequenses. It's always a joke to everyone until they have to face the horrible reality themselves. Remember this, many of these diseases display generalized and non-specific symptoms initially. Don't be the ignorant or irresponsible fool that has too see it rear its ugly face.....


    Ok back to the charity thread.

    I'm a huge believer/contributer of the heart disease walk that is done every year down here in florida. I always do what i can to assist the cause in raising money for research and advancement.

  4. Since I don't have STDs, have no association with 'em, and don't intend on catchin any in the near or distant future, I'll get back on track cause I'm bored...

    I do occasional volunteer work for a local group - Habitat for Hounds. Just got involved. They help out abused animals (mainly dogs) in the area by either providing a better shelter or finding a better home. Our local SPCA is absolute crap, else I'd help them out.

    Other than that, when something financially good happens to me, I like to pay it forward a bit. Ask the AX guys who sat at my table on night 2 of the Arnie this year what I tipped the waitress. Standard is 15%. She got about 95%. I figure, she might have a kid at home, or rent due, or an empty tank, or a goldfish with narcolepsy of somethin. When I'm in a good mood, I figure I might as well make someone else smile for a minute or two.

    HA! Thanks for the compliment, but I'm usually a grumpy bastard.

    No go on the O- this year. Got a baby on the way in July and I won't be leaving home for quite a while. I'm still planning on Arnie 09, though. It's only a 6-hour drive, so much more feasible for me to just jump a state over for the weekend.

    Congrats on the new addition to the family! I totally understand what you mean. We plan on attempting for a little trauma sometime after the O this year. Hopefully i'll get out to the arnie next year though.

  10. ive done alot of volunteer work from Run for the Cure, to the MS society.Donating your time is very important and alot of people overlook it. I took a course in University 3 years ago about genetic diseases. Our term paper involved volunteering with a group or person and report on it. I worked with a 15 year old boy with Down Syndrome, he is amazing, and I still play basketball with him once a month at my school.

    I think any charity would be great jjohn, and if you need anything from me for contests/auction let me know.

  11. The Naval Special Warfare Foundation http://www.nswfoundation.org/

    Or the Program my friend has to get Surefire G2's (and other gear) to Soldiers in Iraq.

    Or...any program to that takes care of our countries Soldiers and Veterans, since a huge part of their proper welcome home should involve them being thanked and recognized for the sacrifices they made when we asked them to.

  12. While I was in school in Alabama my class volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, I didnt quit understand it because the family we built a storage shed for looked well off... so now I just give monthly donations to the Boy an Girls Club and another organization through the Military Campaigns. And I donate funds to organizations that provide help and assistance to my fellow soldiers.

    I'm deployed so thats why I dont give my time right now

  13. Special Days Camp. Its for kids with cancer and leukemia.

    http://www.specialdays.org/

  14. I would give to any organization that helps children born with serious medical conditions. ie. cancer, MS, Autism, ect... It really tears me up to see a child suffer for any reason .
