why does tumblr keep confusing “things I don’t know about because I don’t read or watch the news anywhere” with “things that aren’t being reported on”

Fake Cures For AIDS Have A Long And Dreadful History

Electromagnetism can detect AIDS. The “Complete Cure Device” can wipe out the virus.

The Egyptian military made those claims earlier this year, but now they have backtracked after the announcement was widely denounced by scientists, including Egypt’s own science adviser.

Nonetheless, people are still eager to believe the unbelievable. Egypt’s announcement prompted 70,000 people to send emails asking to try the new treatment.

The Complete Cure Device is just one more false promise in the ongoing fight against AIDS. It is a reminder, too, that for 15 years, beginning in the early 1980s, AIDS was a slaughter, shrouded in mystery, of people in the prime of their lives.

Then came a breakthrough in 1996: A combination of drugs could control the virus, allowing infected people to live long and productive lives. Today, antiretroviral treatment for HIV and AIDS is widely available. An outright cure still eludes scientists, but the once deadly disease has become manageable.

So any claim for an unproven cure, offering hope that could deter patients from effective treatment, is cruel. But myths, false claims and outright fraud have persisted in the AIDS epidemic.

My cat tunneled through a wall into my closet last night.

This isn’t as impressive as it sounds, because the wall was water damaged and the contractors were about to tear it down anyway, but its still pretty impressive when you consider that cats are not known for their tunneling.

He had gotten trapped in an adjoining closet, because it is the law that he must get trapped somewhere at least once a month. he meowed all night, but I assumed that he was just outside my door and trying to get in. He scratches at the door too, so that sound was normal.

At about 5 am I heard a loud cracking sound coming from my closet (the wallpaper tearing?), and I turned on the bedside lamp and started to freak out, because there’s something in my closet for real this is not a drill oh my god.

Like half a second later, I could see something furry with a nose- I assumed a giant rat. Then there was a crumbling sound, and I saw my cats head, a white paw, both paws, and holy shit my cat just tunneled through the wall.

Literally everyone is pissed at me for not taking a picture of him coming through the wall, but in my defense, when something is tunneling into your bedroom closet your first thought is not “where’s my camera.”

The cat is fine. He just blinked and seemed more annoyed at the inconvenience than anything else.
