One thing about humans is that they will put up with all but the most absurd and alarming events once they’ve signed on to a situation. There is in fact a moment when the teenage girl could jump out at the stoplight once she starts to get the smell of bad magic on the guy who said he’d give her a lift home, when the homeowner could close the door on the man at the front steps whose face isn’t composed right at all. But if you don’t bail right away, chances are you will be along for the entire ride, however windy and gruesome and never-ending it turns out to be. We’ve all done it: taken the cab even though the driver seems weird, gotten on the plane even though that guy in the trench coat is sweating and talking to himself, stayed in a situation even though some tingly instinct is telling you to flee. And what you’ve learned from those experiences is that it always, always works out. Trust is how Craigslist works in the first place. The shocking thing isn’t that the occasional bad actor on Craigslist shows up and takes advantage of that trust. The shocking thing about Craigslist is that it almost never happens.

More than one in three Americans, a Kaiser Family Foundation survey found, hold at least one wrong belief about HIV transmissions. About 27 percent don’t know it can’t be spread by sharing a drinking glass, 17 percent don’t know it can’t be transmitted by touching a toilet seat, and 11 percent don’t know it can’t be caught by swimming in a pool with someone who is HIV-positive.

This is what it’s like to have HIV in 2014

My home on the web v. 4.0 (next-to-zero effort edition). Music, tech, science, art, vegetarian eats, books, food politics, lifehacking, the law, San Francisco, whippets (and dogs generally), fennec foxes, technology, internet memes, webcomics, and sometimes origami and/or hedgehogs.... in other words, a mishmash of stuff that was of interest to me, and, possibly, is of interest to you.
