    @little mister. The then-secret US gov. Viral Cancer Research Project 1962- when AIDS broke out in public consumed 50,000 African chimpanzees per year, nearly placing that species on the endangered list.
    Guess who they used as lab rats after that. Gay men from Manhattan. (research this for a few years like i did, and then you will know)

    That AIDS came from chimpanzees in the wild is the cover story. AIDS came from chimpanzees in labs. We have bills of lading proving 50,000 African chimpanzees PER YEAR were shipped to the USA as lab rats for the congressionally funded Viral Cancer Research Project be

    I am going to start posting what I really think. I am sick of pretending to be a child because I am a man in my 40's. If there isn't a trademark, it's not me.

    (1) Page yourself over the intercom. (Don't disguise your voice)
    (2) Put mosquito netting around your cubicle.
    (3) Send e-mail to the rest of the company to tell them what you're doing. For example: 'If anyone needs me, I'll be in the bathroom.'
    (4) Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
    (5) Develop an unnatural fear of staplers.
    (6) Reply to everything someone says with, "That's what you think."
    (7) Dont use any punctuation in your emails
    (8) Ask people what sex they are. When they answer, say "are you sure"?
    (9) Stand in front of your parked car and point a hair dryer at passing cars to see if they slow down.

    One day a Blonde was going down the road in her car when she sees a car accident. She comes to a stop 2 miles down the road because she hit the gas instead of the brakes.
    The Blonde then proceeds to pull out 2 naked cardboard men that she put long coats on. She then sets them up along side the road.
    After an hour passes and traffic backs up 12 miles, a cop comes by. The cop pulls over onto the side of the road. He steps out and asks the woman what those cardboard things are for. She says, "Oh nothing sir, these are just my emergency flashers."

    Good morning all.
    News about those lab chimps linked to the Aids virus did surface sometime back but then disappeared off the radar as suddenly. Has anyone any clue?

    My thoughts this Friday were on the massive military crackdown against separatists in India's Assam province.This has been going on for sometime but we never hear of it. Our MS media completely ignores this insurgency in India just like they ignore the military occupation of Kashmir or attacks against Christian missionaries by Hindu extremist terrorist groups.

    While on this train of thought I also remember the sociol-economic unrest and protests going on in Israel for months. Last week during these protests a desperate Israeli tired and frustrated to get his rights, put himself on fire.
    Did anyone here caught this story on "World News" on any channel??
