  1. I’m going to have to borrow “perfucking sucking” at something. Great descriptor. 😉

    Very interesting. Looking forward to the wrap-up.

  2. I was pretty excited when I saw this show because I’m HIV+ and I enjoy your show very much. I’m looking forward to part two. One challenge for you: stop saying “spread AIDS, get AIDS, etc” because we all know AIDS is a syndrome and cannot be spread or gotten. The difference between HIV and AIDS was your first quiz question! Say instead, “spread HIV, get HIV, etc”. I surprised BJ Allan didn’t say anything.

    Perhaps it semantics, but I think words matter and you’re missing the opportunity to use the correct word. Consider the gauntlet thrown down, my fine sirs.

    1. You’re absolutely right. I hadn’t even thought of it that way and will work to get it right in the future.
