Believe Everything You Read Online?

I recently read online that there have been some incidents of HIV-infected needles hidden under gas pump handles. I have really bad anxiety and after pumping gas I saw blood under the skin of my index finger, but no pain or bleeding. Was this a needle prick and could I get HIV?

My question is...why would you use urine as fertilizer.....EVER? The second part of my question is unanswerable to any person with any commonality about them.

Those are some good questions. The answers to all the questions are the same, however most people are not educated in the field of HIV/AIDS. There's still fear and stigma associated with the disease. But as long as people are asking the question, that's a good thing.

Absolutely , there's is no stupid questions asked when it comes to HIV/AIDS. Questions act as a information board. People searching for answers usually find them in question form.

The 10 Questions are very interesting and amusing. However, I am disappointed that you did not answer the questions. There are elements to those questions that, if responded to, would have been educational to your readers. I believe you missed a golden opportunity to clear up some misunderstandings and educate people.

I look forward to this list of HIV transmission questions every year, and this one certainly does not disappoint. I laughed out loud, and cringed just as much.
