Woman Catches HIV After Having Her Nails Done Using Shared Manicure Equipment.

Sup Travellers?! HIV Aids is one of the deadliest diseases on the planet, killing 36 million+ people worldwide but the disease in itself is easily avoidable. With the right precautions you can live your entire life HIV-free. But after what happened to a particular 22-year-old woman I think those precautions should be reassessed.

According to reports from Daily Mail, an unnamed 22-year-old woman was diagnosed with HIV after having her nails done using shared manicure equipment. Even though transmission in this way is very rare it is still possible and it's a frightening fact. 

When diagnosed, the woman was found to have advanced HIV but failed to meet any of the standard conditions for transmission — she’d never had sex, a blood transfusion or surgery, or gotten a piercing or tattoo.

After confirming her claims, her doctors dug deeper, and found that the woman shared manicure instruments years before with a cousin who was later found to be HIV-positive. Blood analysis suggested the woman contracted the virus around ten years ago.

Although most of us aren’t sharing cuticle scissors with an HIV-infected friend, the majority of women — and a number of men — have probably gotten a manicure at a nail salon, where instruments are regularly reused. 

Dr Brian Foley, of the HIV Sequence Database at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, said the case should not make people scared of contact with people with the virus, as the risk of infection is very low.

He said: "HIV is not transmitted by casual contact, such as sharing eating utensils, or drinking from the same water glass. This transmission of HIV by shared manicure equipment is a very rare event that should serve not to make people fear HIV or contact with HIV-infected people. However, the case could promote caution around sharing items which may contain blood, he added.

He said: "It should make people aware that sharing any utensils with possible blood-blood contact, such as needles used for drugs, tattoos, or acupuncture can result in transmission of viruses such as hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV. In addition, there are other common viruses and bacteria that can also be spread by sharing equipment without proper disinfection between users."

It's a fact that most people who aren't at risk of contracting HIV don't get tested so there may be a lot of people out there with HIV who aren't even aware of it. I mean --- the 22-year-old woman in this post contracted the disease 10 years ago and only just got tested. 

This story should be an encouragement to you to get tested because you never really know.....Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Groom Cancels Wedding After Seeing Video Of Bride Going Wild In Bachelorette Party.

Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are usually pretty wild and certain levels of craziness are expected and tolerated. But there is an unspoken limit to the amount of fun that you can actually have. One woman, however, clearly is unaware of these limits because she took her bachelorette party to a whole new level and it all surfaced online.
The woman got a little too "personal" with a stripper. And after some alleged "hacking" the video got sent to the groom and as you can expect, he wasn't too happy about it. 
The woman was literally banged by the stripper (like full penetration). I mean, a little dance might have been forgivable but not a full on banging. 
Like really? 
Obviously, the groom called off the wedding after seeing the video.

The video was then uploaded by a certain Carmelo Delva and went viral on social media. Now, the video gets very lewd and I'm pretty sure it's been deleted by Facebook now but it begs the question --- was the groom righ…

VIDEO: Dad Abandons Little Girl On Dirt Road, Then He Looks Into The Rear View Mirror

Adoption is one of the kindest things things you can do as human and I have enormous respect for anyone who does it. It's usually a spark of enthusiasm that causes a family to adopt someone into their home but for some, that spark of enthusiasm doesn't last very long and becomes dim. When things get hard, and the responsibilities kick in, remembering why you adopted in the first place becomes more and more fuzzy.

The short video below is a perfect depiction of what happens when the spark dissipates. In the video we see a family adopting a little girl from an orphanage. At first they are super excited to have a new addition to their family but eventually their excitement wears off and quickly turns to annoyance.

When it gets to be too much, the father packs the little girl into the car with her favorite toy and starts off towards an empty dirt road. The father stops the car on the side of the road and throws the girl's toy far from the car. As she runs after her toy, Dad q…
