AIDS started circulating in Western Alaska before the turn of the century. Like 1989.

Top of the morning gents,

The fact that ain't none of us niggers dun croaked from AIDS is a goddamned miracle.

Just too weird.

Come on fuckers, wake the fuck up. We can confirm that some of our ex-wives and ex-girlfriends are sick and tired of being sick with AIDS. My speculation is that some of our current wives ain't so healthy neither. Think how many mutant mongoloids trek this Earth looking fer their paps. Namely you sport fuckers.

I'm betting NONE of us have ever worn a condom. I don't even know how to or want to. On you big dicked motherfuckers they'd look like silly little Santa hats. No worries mates. Lots of sick baby tards, but no HIV diagnosis.

Know why? I do. All yer gramps is norse trash. We're all descendants of Bubonic Plague survivors which gives us an advantage with an immunity to another disease that thankfully only kills faggots, IV drug users and ethnic minorities.

Survival of the fittest bitches. All of us has fucked HIV dark pussy maybe even married an AIDS carrier, but fuck, we'll never know. We are truly sick fucks: albeit tall immune alcoholics and mighty healthy ice nigger shooters.

Think about the pussy we done defrosted and seasoned...then left to rot.

Some of us haven't fucked Gumby's whiff-o-licious sister, some of us have porked Francis Whalen or sick Tish, whilst the rest of us all banged all sorts of loose garbage bagggers from upriver or yonder trailer parks along I-5.

Leopard can't change its spots, Eskimos can't wash away blisters and sores and you half trash Euros got high water marks on yer dirty dicks with crunchy Indun fried bread pustule glaze on yer heavy goands.

If ye all were non-Nordic fuck offs, you'd be sucking dirt in burial plots right next to lots of really nice men that prefer White Zinfandel. And IV drug using minority boys with punked out exhaust pipes.

Nice to have roots way up in northern Europe ah hetero barts?

Here's something rather personal. Since working narc duty with Helsingfors Polise Authority and getting in a bit of trouble with the Estonian Passport Kontrol, my detention and punishments still plague me. Literally.

It's the life of a confidential informant. Otherwise known as the amateur criminal that takes pay from professional police. Contract dumbass, expatriot syndrome, have gun will travel. I never learn.

Whilst working on the Capones I sold thousands of hits of LSD and maintained a rather handsome marijuana grow op in a little house on Caribou Street that me and Marto painted.

Whilst werk with Mat-Su Narcs I grew chronic and mailed liquor to the villages.

On the Logan mish here in Barrow, I got nailed for attempted importation on a common carrier: legal speak for intercepting mucho cases of liquor. Which is ironic because as my booze was getting bagged and tagged and while Fairbanks Airport Piglets and Statewide DEA bacon bits were issuing me an arrest warrant, I was flying over the Brooks Range in Logan's own airplane PACKED with bud, booze and speed.

See the dichotomous dilemma yer author on drugs plays within?

I get sick on all my drug jobs, but since my release from jail and flying back to America I carried a low grade persistent virus in me just like a squirrel carries rabies yet suffers no infection nor symptoms.

No shit, from the shittiest shit holes in Central Europe, Russia and Scandinavia to the shittiest shit holes in remote Alaska. Wake up fucks. Didn't ye ever wonder why I've been writing about new scars and apparently weekly visits to the Galena, Kotzebue and Barrow native clinics?

My med stats are public: 6'3" sober, 5'0" when baked, BP 112/68, Cholesterol is 150, A1C 6.5 but my temperature is ALWAYS slightly elevated and my lymphs flex and spooge like my dick. Not good. Besides a progressive familial failure of the pancreas to medicate later in life, I'm having a bitch of a time shaking a bastard version of pertussis or bubonic some shit that thrives in fecus and Finns.

Get this. I was JUST at the fucking clinic last Wedesday and was given 5 needles to suck on: 2 shots in each shoulder and a TB fluid bubble in me forearm. We're talking pain magnums in me arms. For days afterward I couldn't sleep on either side fer shit. Fuck my arms hurt. I snivelled like a bitch, but not loud enough to awake the Eskimo crime partner. She fucking hates men that whine and quickly adds injury to insult with much aboriginal severity.

Old man Doc Solenberger advised me not to mention the fact that he's treating numerous cases of Bubonic black death here in Barrow, much less, not to mention the prospect that I fucking brought it here to the native population. We're so white.

Perty kewl eh? Waves of death in my wake but I made it.

Despite my formerly nicotine stained fingers and currently resined lungs due to being a chain marijuana smoker, I think that last round of immunizations and antibiotics did the trick. I'm all better now.

Damn nice to get over that plague thing eh?

Just remember, all my prose are fiction. None of you fuckers ever existed aside from my pre-stroke nightmares of living with filthy natives and criminals, cops and jailers. Ya see, it was all just a bad dream. I've never worked with bunches of cops nor troopers: drug dealers neither. So fuck ya'll.

I can say whatever I want. You're not real. I'm still telling yer wives to leave their teeth at the door, let the dogs clean 'em.

Karluk Puq Niglooo-me.

Study traces AIDS virus origin to 100 years ago
By MALCOLM RITTER – 1 hour ago

NEW YORK (AP) — The AIDS virus has been circulating among people for about 100 years, decades longer than scientists had thought, a new study suggests. Genetic analysis pushes the estimated origin of HIV back to between 1884 and 1924, with a more focused estimate at 1908.

Previously, scientists had estimated the origin at around 1930. AIDS wasn't recognized formally until 1981 when it got the attention of public health officials in the United States.

The new result is "not a monumental shift, but it means the virus was circulating under our radar even longer than we knew," says Michael Worobey of the University of Arizona, an author of the new work.

The results appear in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature. Researchers note that the newly calculated dates fall during the rise of cities in Africa, and they suggest urban development may have promoted HIV's initial establishment and early spread.

Scientists say HIV descended from a chimpanzee virus that jumped to humans in Africa, probably when people butchered chimps. Many individuals were probably infected that way, but so few other people caught the virus that it failed to get a lasting foothold, researchers say.

But the growth of African cities may have changed that by putting lots of people close together and promoting prostitution, Worobey suggested. "Cities are kind of ideal for a virus like HIV," providing more chances for infected people to pass the virus to others, he said.

Perhaps a person infected with the AIDS virus in a rural area went to what is now Kinshasa, Congo, "and now you've got the spark arriving in the tinderbox," Worobey said.

Key to the new work was the discovery of an HIV sample that had been taken from a woman in Kinshasa in 1960. It was only the second such sample to be found from before 1976; the other was from 1959, also from Kinshasa.

Researchers took advantage of the fact that HIV mutates rapidly. So two strains from a common ancestor quickly become less and less alike in their genetic material over time. That allows scientists to "run the clock backward" by calculating how long it would take for various strains to become as different as they are observed to be. That would indicate when they both sprang from their most recent common ancestor.

The new work used genetic data from the two old HIV samples plus more than 100 modern samples to create a family tree going back to these samples' last common ancestor. Researchers got various answers under various approaches for when that ancestor virus appeared, but the 1884-to-1924 bracket is probably the most reliable, Worobey said.

The new work is "clearly an improvement" over the previous estimate of around 1930, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Md. His institute helped pay for the work.

Fauci described the advance as "a fine-tuning."

Experts say it's no surprise that HIV circulated in humans for about 70 years before being recognized. An infection usually takes years to produce obvious symptoms, a lag that can mask the role of the virus, and it would have infected relatively few Africans early in its spread, they said.

HIV Outbreak Began Decades Earlier Than Thought

Wednesday, October 1, 2008; 12:00 AM

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 1 (HealthDay News) -- The most pervasive global strain of HIV began spreading in humans around 1900 in sub-Saharan Africa, a new study claims.

The research, which is published in the current issue ofNature, found that HIV began spreading between 1884 and 1924, around the same time urban centers in west central Africa were established. This estimated time of origin is decades earlier than the previous estimate of 1930.

For the study, researchers analyzed tissue samples and uncovered the second-oldest genetic sequence of HIV-1 group M. They used this and other HIV-1 genetic sequences to construct a family tree of the origin of the viral strain and to estimate the time of origin of HIV-1 group M.

The researchers worked with a 1960 sample of HIV gene fragments from a wax-embedded lymph-node tissue biopsy from a woman in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This 1960 virus is the second-oldest known HIV-1 group M genetic sequence, with the oldest being a 1959 blood sample from a man also from Kinshasa.

"Previous work on HIV sequencing had been done on frozen samples, and there are only so many of those samples available," lead researcher Michael Worobey, an assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona in Tucson, said in a university news release.

"From that point on, the next oldest sequences that anyone has recovered are from the late 1970s and 1980s, the era when we knew about AIDS. Now, for the first time, we have been able to compare two relatively ancient HIV strains. That helped us to calibrate how quickly the virus evolved and make some really robust inferences about when it crossed into humans, how quickly the epidemic grew from that time and what factors allowed the virus to enter and become a successful human pathogen," said Worobey.

Previous studies have shown that HIV spread from chimpanzees to humans in southeastern Cameroon.

Worobey said that the HIV epidemic that resulted from the turn-of-the-century spread correlates to the urbanization of colonial Africa, principally the present-day city of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The growth of cities and associated high-risk behaviors may have been a principal cause of the rapid spread of the virus.

Worobey is optimistic about the eventual extinction of the HIV virus.

"I think the picture that has emerged here, where changes the human population experienced may have opened the door to the spread of HIV, is a good reminder that we can make changes now that could help reverse the epidemic. If HIV has one weak spot, it is that it is a relatively poorly transmitted virus. From better testing and prevention, to wider use of the antiretroviral drug therapy, there are a number of ways to reduce transmission and force this virus back into extinction," he said.
