Michael Cerveris, Actor, New York City
There are so many to choose from. In the early days, the myths were that toilet seats, shaking hands ...
... or people who have AIDS coughing in the same room could give someone HIV. It's hard to think of one single most ridiculous, most outrageous myth.

If you think about having sex, you might get AIDS: People would actually say things like that!
