You'd probably win a Nobel prize as well. But would you invite all of us to attend? What a party/brawl it would be!

Now i think about it, i could make a lot of money if i had a cure, i could get a patent on it.

I think you'd be lynched if you tried to patent a cure for AIDS.

Rono, it only takes one careless act to contract the HIV virus. Not 'sleeping around'. What you say about withholding the chance to be cured sounds like punishment. And how can one man be allowed to decide whether another man/woman lives or dies because of their mistakes?

Even worse: what about the man who cheats on his wife, contracts HIV and then comes home and gives it to her? Brrrr...

I'll jump in there right alongside MatthewPage. My point being though, you've got to look beyond the short term. Thinking about social services and Lilly's burden on her generation misses the point that society would change to deal with the situation. 'My mum would lose her job....' I'm sorry but there's a bigger picture.

Tizer, you would see what my views on the bigger picture are if you read the rest of the post. Besides which, you may not see that the problems would start right from home, before becoming such a global concern.
