Australia: Land of Rolled Gold Dickheads
« on: March 07, 2007, 10:06:28 PM »
Europe vs America be buggered. It's official. The stupidest people on earth are right here in Matty the Damned's homeland. How do I know this? Because our National Broadcaster has this little gem on it's website:

HIV Infected Dental Worker Sparks Panic Amongst Idiots In Western Australia.

My favourite line from the article?

The health worker is no longer practising or working in the state.

Thank heavens! That should arrest the rise in HIV infections.

Now, I know how I got the AIDS.

Stupid Western Australian dental work.

I knew I shouldn't have gotten that abscessed tooth treated in Perth.

A great article.  That should clear up any stigma that HIV+ folk encounter.

Peddling this kind of fear in the name of journalism is a disgrace.

Department spokesman Paul Van Buynder says there are no documented cases of HIV transmission in a dental clinic but it is important that patients are aware of the situation.

Is there no end to the glory of ignorance?

But they make a mean meat pie! (especially at Harry's Cafe D' Wheels)

Is "Practicing" spelled with an "s" in Australia? Or was that an ABC News typo?

BTW, I think ABC News is just as stupid (for publishing that) as whoever laid off the Dental Worker. (Assuming he/she was laid off)

No, it's spelt with an S.

I knew those old dental dams had a use.  Aren't they supposed to be used when going down on a woman to prevent the transmission of STDs?  Maybe we should go back to using them at the dentist to keep those pesky HIV's away!   ;D

What I find really stupid about that article is that there was no mention of the use of Universal Precautions.  I assume they truly are universal and in use down under.  Pretty soon we'll see headlines about HIV+ waiters and waitresses that didn't disclose to their customers.  Sometimes, I think the general public, which isn't too bright to begin with, is even worse off than I'd thought.

Thanks for sparing me the thrashing Matty...  ;)
I know that my own writing skills suck.
I was just curious about the spelling because I've never seen it spelled that way. So I put it in my word processor and the spell checker said it was wrong. Then I looked in my dictionary and it didn't show it spelled with an "s".
But when I used Marion Webster Online, it showed "practising"  as a variant.
I wasn't trying to be anal-retentive - it just tweaked my twisted curiosity.

That is so scary. Especially what David-NC said about waiters/waitresses. Should i contact my guests now or later.  This kind of ignorance is one of the reasons no one other than immediate family knows about my status.  Thanks.  Cristy
